As the season winds down it’s good to remember that no matter what happens the rest of the way we should embrace what a pleasant surprise this season has been. The Knicks were picked by just about everyone to be the worst team in the league (including us). The team’s odds to make the playoffs were last seen (April 28th) at a favorable -1500 but it looks to have been removed now. However, they are a lock for the play-in tournament at +600.
Even if the Knicks fell to the play-in game and lost twice it’s still been a great ride. We’ve been through so much as Knicks fans over the 7 year playoff drought. Seven head coaches, three of the top five worst seasons in franchise history, Bargnani, fat Felton, hungover JR, Phil Jackson, Noah’s insane contract, the Porzingis drama; injuries; and trade, drafting Kevin Knox, never having a starting caliber point guard to the point where we tried to talk ourselves into point Hezonja…
This was all in the last 7 years and I could go on and on. So let’s all enjoy this moment and enjoy the fact that for the first time in a long time the Knicks are good and have the foundation to be good in the future as well.
Marc went dark and had no idea what happened during the draft. He tries to guess what happened during the draft, then we talk about all the rumors, the trades that happened before and during the draft, Phil Jackson’s press conference, and much more
