The New York Knicks enter the NBA All-Star Break out of the playoff picture with a record of 23-34. How does their report card look?

  • Current Record: 23-34 (12th seed)
  • Offensive Rating: 15th
  • Defensive Rating: 25th
  • Net Rating: 24th

It was better when the New York Knicks were just bad. Like unwatchably bad. Then at least nobody would be paying attention.

That’s not the case this season. Now they’re a car crash that you can’t help but look at. At the NBA All-Star Break, the Knicks are a reality tv show featuring a trust fund billionaire owner and his petty feud with a bitter ex-player and a 71-year-old man fumbling with his Twitter account.

The Knicks are still searching for any possible answers to fix their disappointing season. Lineup changes, media outbursts, and even Carmelo Anthony‘s scoring onslaughts haven’t worked.

There many not be a fix with only 25 games remaining in another lost season, so with a week-long stoppage in the season we took the time to assess New York’s progress or lack thereof. Here’s a report card for the league’s most dramatic team.
