Monday night’s debacle in Madison Square Garden may not have been rock bottom for the Knicks, but this latest news almost certainly qualifies as taking one step closer to it:
The Knicks recalled guard Chris Smith from D-League Erie. Smith averaged 11.3 points and 2.7 assists in 24.7 minutes per game.

Just to refresh your memory, this is what people think of Chris Smith:
Within the Knicks coaching staff, they believe Chris Smith doesn’t even have the talent to be an NBA Development League player – never mind worthy of a roster spot. One opposing GM called him “maybe the worst player in the history of the [NBA] summer league.”
Smith’s call-up comes in the wake of the news that Pablo Prigioni will miss at least two weeks with a hairline fracture in his big toe.
