Remember the days when you’d be sort of pumped up to see the Knicks play another good team on a nationally televised game? It was just two years ago that the Knicks were in such a state. Heck, forget the legitimately good 2012-13 team, I was cool with the 2010-11 team, where we could at least sort of hope for a good game from the team.
