#5. Come up with a long-term plan—and then stick to it.
The Knicks don't have a lot of money to spend this summer because of all the big contracts they have on the books right now. So they won't be able to do much to improve, and next season probably isn't going to go any better than this season. But that's OK, provided Jackson lets fans know what the plan is. If the plan is to let next season play out and then try and sign some big-name free agents in the summer of 2015, awesome. But the Knicks need to let their fans know that so that they don't suffer through another season of high hopes like they did this year.
