Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — In the midst of the worst season in franchise history, New York Knicks executive Phil Jackson made a plea to Knicks fans that better days are ahead.
Jackson sent a letter and video message to season ticket holders about the state of franchise.
“While I know this has been a challenging season for our team on the court, I can also tell you that everyone in the organization is working tirelessly to get our Knicks back to a place where we are once again competing at the highest level,” Jackson said in the video.
“We have made key roster moves to free up significant cap space that will provide us greater flexibility to acquire talent in this summer’s free agency,” Jackson continued. “And for the first time in many years, we expect to have a top pick in the NBA Draft this June.
“These are key steps to building a roster of players that have both the talent and character to win in New York and who, alongside Carmelo Anthony, will become a team that can become a consistent winner,” he added.
Entering Wednesday, the Knicks are 14-60, which is the worst record in the NBA.
