2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Warriors

You really have to wonder if Steve Kerr will be able to keep a straight face tonight when he sees what he could have been the coach of if he had honored his verbal agreement with Phil Jackson (I don’t think enough is made, by the way, about him breaking a verbal agreement to coach the Knicks. That’s not cool).

We will get a chance to see a guy tonight that the Knicks might actually have an outside chance of getting this offseason, Draymond Green.

Maybe the Knicks will surprise us and win this one!

Let’s go Knicks!
