The Knicks got a bargain in Jalen Brunson

For the better part of the last decade or decade and a half, you probably could have brought a Knicks fan to tears—if not outright rage—by broaching the subject of starting point guards.

The topic has been a longtime sore spot for those who bleed orange and blue, and rightfully so. The past five merry-go-round seasons have seen Jarrett Jack; Emmanuel Mudiay; Frank Ntilikina; Elfrid Payton; an oft-injured, turnstile version of Bronx native Kemba Walker; and Alec Burks—who isn’t even a point guard—hold down the starting role for the franchise. It’s a reality that left the club at a nightly disadvantage at arguably the game’s most important position.
