Man, it’s so weird how little the regular season seem to mean nowadays. Don’t get me wrong, I would kill to be able to actually watch a good Knicks team play during the regular season (2012-13 was a whole lot of fun. Hell, 2010-13 was, in general, a fun era, where the Knicks could actually, you know, beat teams), but it’s weird to see how the East is made up out of teams trying to lose and teams not trying to lose and so the teams trying to win beat the hell out of the teams trying to lose and it really doesn’t mean anything in the long term. Milwaukee got actively worse this offseason and yes, Giannis is having an even better year than his MVP season last year, but in general, does anyone think that they are better poised to win in the postseason this year? Perhaps due to the fact that Kawhi left Toronto, I guess, but beyond that, they’re a worse team and yet we’re going to just watch them beat up the bad teams and have an awesome record and then it won’t mean anything in the playoffs.
Anyhow, the Knicks head into Milwaukee as one of the biggest underdogs that they will be all season. With no Frank tonight, it will be interesting to see if Trier can actually get out of the doghouse.
In more interesting news, there are some rumors out there that suggest that people in the Raptors organization believe that Masai Ujiri might be willing to sign with the Knicks when his contract runs out. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
Let’s go! Knicks?
