Disgrace. Horrific. No soul. 

Those were just a few of the terms WFAN's Boomer Esiason used to describe the current state of the Knicks after they lost 129-92 to the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night. 

New York, which was whipped by the Milwaukee Bucks 132-88 on Monday night, became just the seventh team in NBA history to lose back-to-back games by at least 35 points.

The Knicks have now lost eight straight and at 4-18 own the Eastern Conference's worst record.

"What we are watching again is another f'ing disgrace," Esiason said on Friday's "Boomer and Gio" show. "An absolute just putrid effort. Julius Randle should be kicked off the team, I'm telling you right now. These guys, like, the fact that the ball gets stolen and it gets returned to the other end and guys are not even running -- so you know what that says? 'Hey, Coach, F you. We hate you.'

"And you know what? If I'm the owner I'm looking at this like Jim Dolan was last night. I'm like, 'Hey, uh, Coach, you're out of here,' and I'd put the GM on the short leash and say, 'Look, dude, get somebody in here that's at least going to get these guys to play hard and scare the living the crap out of them or, you know what, you're all gone.'

"Because I'll tell you, this is the low point now. I never thought it could get freakin' lower. But back-to-back losses of more than 35 points in games where they are just completely out of it and don't care. And it looks like they don't care."

Esiason said change is needed.

"You brought (general manager Scott) Perry and (coach David) Fizdale here to change the culture of the team. The culture of the team is worse than it's ever been. And their play reflects it. And you know who's going to get caught up in all this and who is getting caught up in all of this? Both Kevin Knox, who obviously hasn't found his game for whatever reason, and RJ Barrett is now all of a sudden being associated with this crap."
