2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Pistons

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

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Hawks

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.

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
