Well, here we are. I was terrified of this game back when I thought a win here would only possibly end up with the Knicks tied with the Timberwolves. Instead, winning this game will very likely result in the Knicks tied with the Philadelphia 76ers for the second worst record in the NBA, resulting in splitting ping bong balls with the Sixers and then flipping a coin to determine which team is officially second and which team is officially third. The third-worst record can finish as “high” in the draft as 6th. So, yeah, this is a big game. A …continue reading
It’s 2015. Everyone has access to the internet. So when the Associated Press goes out of their way to write: New York has the inside track to the most ping-pong balls in the lottery since the tiebreaker with the Timberwolves goes in the Knicks’ favor if they finish the season tied. then that is not cool. That is not how it works. If two teams end the season with the same record, they split the ping pong balls evenly (so it would go from one team having a 25% chance at the #1 pick and the other team having a …continue reading
The Knicks are up 12 as we come close to halftime. Commence freaking out now at how this team is screwing itself over. Who here seriously doesn’t see two more wins a possibility this season? This team…this freaking team…
We’re getting to some very stressful times for these last five games of the season. If the Knicks can just lose out, they are guaranteed the worst record in the league. Not even Minneosta’s finely tuned tanking machine can pass the Knicks if the Knicks just lose these last five games. What, though, about Knick history gives you any sort of good feeling about the Knicks’ chances? So these will be five very stressful games. Let’s go? Knicks!
This game is very important not because the Sixers can really catch the Knicks, but because the Sixers are by far the worst team the Knicks play the rest of the year. So if the Knicks can somehow manage to lose to the Sixers, then they should be in good shape to get the worst record in the league. The Sixers played just last night (a one-point, last second loss) so this will be a tough game for the Knicks to lose. One bright spot is that Nerlens Noel will be suiting up for Philly tonight. A fellow on Twitter …continue reading
I think it is very fair if everyone would prefer to watch the Kentucky game and see the player we hope that the Knicks can end up with instead of this nonsense. The Bulls seem to often play down to their competition, so this could be a bit scary. Let’s go? Knicks!
The Sixers almost won a game last night and the Timberwolves actually did win the other night. So the other teams in the “Race” for the bottom of the standings are doing their part – the Knicks have to keep doing their part. Let’s go? Knicks!
