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 big game that there is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that the Knicks are going to try to win, and thus they likely will win it.
Because, well, Knicks.
Let’s go? Knicks?
