The Knicks stink.

They’re 5-31 and have lost 11 straight and 21 of 22.

Amar’e Stoudemire, via Ian Begley of ESPN:

“It’s beyond my imagination at this point,” he said Sunday before a 95-82 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks that extended their losing streak to 11 games. “I never thought I’d see this. ... This is definitely kind of mind-boggling.”

“It’s a tragic thing,” said center Samuel Dalembert of the mounting losses.

So far, one of the most exciting aspects of the Knicks’ season has been the intensifying talk from within to describe their problems. Stoudemire ripped the team’s effort, and Phil Jackson upped that with a Zen: “There’s some resistance to discipline, order and culture change.”

Stoudemire and Dalembert are just adding to the rhetoric, but they didn’t top Carmelo Anthony’s whopper: “The fans are dying, we’re dying.” That gem remains on top.
