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. It’s a long ways away from the 1990s, where the Knicks could legitimately win every game they played, no matter who the opponent was, but it was something.
Now? Well, now I look to these matchups with good teams and say, “At least it’s an easy loss to help their chances for a good draft pick.”
Pragmatic? Of course.
Sad, though? I’d say yes.
Then again, Cole is starting tonight. Maybe they will surprise us (they won’t)!
