The NBA 2018 offseason's official slogan: “What the hell were we thinking in 2016?”
Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer
The current Knicks regime under team president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry seemingly hasn't had to fight the same perception issues that New York dealt with during Phil Jackson's presidency. Some young players were turned off by what they'd heard about the Knicks in recent seasons; one of the top point guards in the 2017 NBA Draft was dead set against working out for New York because he didn't want to run the triangle offense, per sources. This Knicks contingent doesn't seem to be handcuffed by those same negative perceptions - at least not to the same degree as the past regime.
