It’s funny, as the Knicks have been depressing me more for the next few seasons based just on how amazingly bad they are playing as of late, they at least let me feel better about their direct future, since they are SO bad that any wins would shock me now.

Since the Knicks are visiting the Clippers, there are, of course, a bunch of “maybe Melo will go to the Clippers” stories, which are nonsense. The main story about Melo seeming like he might want to leave opened with Melo saying something along the lines of, “Nah, don’t even start with this” so clearly nothing has actually changed with regards to Melo wanting to leave.
