Knicks legend and broadcaster Walt Clyde Frazier was brutally honest when discussing the team's outlook this season.
Frazier believes New York is doomed without Kristaps Porzingis, who has been rehabbing his torn ACL overseas and the Knicks do not have a timetable for his return.
"The reality is without KP, man, we're going nowhere," Frazier told Sirius XM this week. "Without Porzingis, he's our future. The worst thing that could have happened to the Knicks did happen. This guy blew his knee out mid season. Supposedly he's coming back in January, but who knows. If the Knicks don't get him back to his former grandeur things are looking pretty bleak for them."
The 22-year-old Porzingis averaged 22.7 points and 6.6 rebounds in 48 games with the Knicks before he tore his ACL in mid-February.
New York's over/under for the 2018-19 season, set by Westgate Las Vegas, is 29.5 wins, the fifth-fewest among all NBA teams.
