Through the first couple of weeks of the season, the New York Knicks have struggled holding a 6-7 record. During this stretch, the Knicks have had trouble finding their offensive identity. In a recent interview with the New York Post, Joakim Noah revealed something puzzling about his role on the team.
“I’m trying to figure it out. There’s no question. It’s been really up and down. I think that’s kind of like my role on this team. Some nights it’s going to be my night, sometimes it’s not. At the end of the day I just have to be consistent with my effort and be consistent and try to bring something positive to this team.”
It’s quite baffling to hear that Noah doesn’t know what his role within the offense is at this point in time. If he doesn’t know his place in the offense, it speaks volumes as to how jumbled the team is on that end of the floor. There is no fluidity and it’s something that has changed game to game.
The problem lies with the Knicks’ current roster that has two ball dominant players in Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose, which has created a problem in its own sense. However, New York has won three out of their last four games putting in the final playoff spot. This is certainly something to watch moving forward into the season.
