In this pathetic shitshow of a Conference, the New York Knicks are now just a game and a half back of the #7 seed. The Knicks are six games under .500 and yet they’re practically in the playoffs! This is pretty much the worst case scenario for this team. They’re a bad team that needs to blow the team up, but every other team in the Eastern Conference is also a bad team (and a few of them should also blow their team up – I’m looking at you, Indiana and Chicago). So the Knicks are very much in danger of doing just well enough against all of these other shitty teams that they’ll screw over any chance that they have to get into prime lottery position. Not only that, but does anyone really think Carmelo Anthony wants off of the team if they’re suddenly right smack in the playoff picture?
So, with all of that in mind, the Knicks really need to lose to an awful (and yet somehow the #4 seed in this awful, awful conference. This conference is the Carmelo Anthony No Trade Clause of conferences) Atlanta Hawks team.
Let’s go, Knicks?
