It is easy to say that the Knicks organization has had a lot of turmoil and bad news throughout the year. There has been a substantial amount of drama in "The Big Apple." They could not make the playoffs once again. They also had another lackluster season. Recently, Kristaps Porzingis tweeted out the LA Clippers with a smiling face emoji and sparked debate about whether or not he is leaving the Knicks. The young star has dismissed the rumors, saying that his Twitter was in fact hacked. He deleted the tweet soon after it was posted, and Twitter is currently looking into the situation.

The Knicks Season

The Knicks had another bad season and did not get into the playoffs, with numerous injuries. Derrick Rose tore his meniscus towards the end of the season and his future with the Knicks is uncertain. Rose will likely go to the Minnesota Timberwolves with his past coach or could consider retiring. The team will need another point guard and should try to sign Jeff Teague from the Pacers. The signing of Courtney Lee was not great either because he has been inconsistent during the season. Hernangomez was a bright spot for the team, playing well during his first NBA season. That's just one positive takeaway for a team that is a long way away from a playoff appearance.

Phil Jackson is ruining the Knicks

Phil Jackson undoubtedly needs to leave the Knicks because he has ruined them. Getting rid of Robin Lopez, who was playing well for them last season and signing Noah to a big contract were mistakes. Trying to kick out Carmelo Anthony, who has played exceptionally well for the team, is another one.

With everything going on in the organization, Anthony took everything very well and never lost his cool. What I really do not like is how people blame Anthony for the Knicks failures, when it is not his fault at all. Porzingis displayed his anger by not going to his final exit interview with the Knicks.

This sparked rumors of him wanting to leave the Knicks organization and being on Anthony's side in the whole ordeal. Several teams reached out with interest.

Will Porzingis stay with the Knicks?

The last thing Knicks fans want to hear is that the young star will be leaving. I hope he will not because he is the one beacon of hope left for the organization. There is no doubt in my mind that he is going to be a huge star. In my opinion, he is one of the best players on the team besides veteran superstar Carmelo Anthony. Porzingis was struggling with some small nagging injuries headed into the regular season, but he did play well. He shot the three at a better percentage this year and is transforming into a lethal jump shooter.

He averaged 18.1 points and 7.2 rebounds this season and is still under contract for two more years. If he could just put on more muscle, he will be very tough to stop and will be able to compete against bigger players. He has the height, but he still does not have the muscle or a post up game yet. The future is still bright for the twenty one year old Latvian star.

The future of Carmelo Anthony

Melo played exceptionally well for the Knicks this season, averaging about 22.4 points per game, 5.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists. It would be interesting if Anthony went to the Clippers, along with Porzingis. The Clippers need another superstar to finally win in the playoffs, having been defeated year after year.

Blake Griffin seems to always be injured or someone else on the team out of the big three. The big three has not worked out for them in a long time. The Clippers could trade Griffin away, and get Carmelo Anthony, and even Porzingis possibly. Anthony would fit perfectly into the Clippers system if he were to go. If this did happen, the Clippers would be a great team and I believe a better one. It would be interesting to see Melo in a Clippers uniform or Porzingis. Only time will tell going forward into the offseason. The Clippers could even get far and reach the finals, or at least be conference champions. There are still a lot of questions left to answer for the New York Knicks.
