New York Knicks, Derrick Rose Get No Love From ESPN
Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN released the latest editions of their NBA Summer Forecast series. Unfortunately, the New York Knicks made an appearance on both lists.

The New York Knicks were featured prominently in the latest editions of ESPN’s NBA Summer Forecast series. Unfortunately, it wasn’t for any good reason.

The Knicks were chosen as No. 3 on the “Team Turmoil” list and Derrick Rose was chosen as the second-worst newcomer for the 2016-17 season.

ESPN defines the summer forecast as, “A panel of more than 200 members who collectively possess vast NBA experience, knowledge and perspective.”

That’s a lot of people who have no faith in Rose or the ability for this team to coexist.

The only two teams picked to be more chaotic than the Knicks were the Bulls, with their logjam of ball handlers, and the always problematic Kings, and Rose was “beat out” by notorious pest Rajon Rondo.

The Knicks have a lot of new faces that will need to mesh with new coach Jeff Hornacek‘s offense, and Rose will take some time in getting used to playing with Carmelo Anthony.

They will need to get used to the lack of confidence among NBA watchers in their future on-court product. New York took a big risk with Rose and it could blow up in their face.
