Here we go, people, a 20% chance for the New York Knicks to get the #11 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.
I’m sure we’re all assuming the Knicks will get the pick, right? By the way, will the Knicks have a representative there in case the Knicks DO get the 11th pick? I don’t know how that works.
Come on, the Knicks need a first round pick so that they can trade it for three future protected picks! We need this!

I assume only teams who can end up 1-4 are there but it’d be great if Rose could jump out, point a finger, and laugh at Cuban if they drop. He then immediately goes into his 2nd ever press conference.
Interesting to see Silver addressing Ja pre draft….
20% of the time…..it works every time.
Monica Mcnutt and Malika excellent complements to Woj.
I am starting to think the Wemby hype may be a tiny bit overdone. But super excited for him.
There must be some way we can get Wemby here…
Malika looks amazing. I think her red jacket is a tip off… it’s either going to be Rockets or Bulls.
The hype is through the roof but Wemby’s numbers, not to mention the tape that always looks downright fake, really are insane.
Getting 11 would really open stuff up for us this offseason…
Yeah, “best draft prospect in team sports history” is an overbid.
Fantastic prospect, though.
Time for the annual rip Knicks fans’ guts out extravaganza!
The good news is that it is theoretically impossible for us to go downward from our current draft position…
No doubt a fantastic prospect. His mother looks like a cross of Helen Hunt and Steffi Graf.
Couldn’t they just have humiliated the Mavs a little bit here?
Well fuck right on off, then.
At least they didn’t move up, the cunts.
Boooooooo. At least they didn’t win it.
Worst loss of the season
Blazers’ tanking paid off.
Pistons? Well not so much.
Lol Detroit is cursed.
The probability of us ever getting that heavily protected Piston’s pick is down to 2% after that.
Well they did beat us twice so at least E can’t blame Thibs for that…
Sadly Detroit getting shafted is not great for us, having a protected pick of theirs and all.
Just don’t be charlotte
Are Wembys stats really that good? 55% on 2s in the 4th or 5th strongest league in Europe?
SAS, HOU, POR and CHA remain.
Please let it be Portland.
Good for Pop.
DRed – Big article on that in the ringer today
Wemby goes to Pop.
Oh for fuck’s sake.
David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Wemby.
Another Spurs dynasty?
Good for the Spurs. Great way for Pop to go out
Don’t like Charlotte getting Scoot.
Moving from Paris to San Antonio lol
Man the Hornets needed that win…
The Spurs have the mirror image of the Knicks’ lottery luck.
What do you have against CLT Brian?
Portland’s gonna trade that pick
San Antonio is the Paris of South Texas. He is going to live the Riverwalk.
So do we call Cuban and offer him Randle for the 10th pick?
San Antonio is a tremendous city to live in if you need to gain weight
Man, if I’m Philly, and Scoot is there at #3, I think hard about a reset. Trade Embiid for Scoot and a few more 1sts, and load up the Scoot/Maxey backcourt.
Meanwhile, Embiid would give Dame a legit shot at a Chip.
I hope Wemby realizes how his whole career he will have to share credit with Pop for his success. I don’t make the rules.
Nuggets have already scored more points than the Knicks did against the Heat
Knicks home win vs Denver was one of the funnest games of the season.
Did that graphic say Devner has 7 offensive rebounds already?
Joker is insane. Yep graphic is correct. He is on track for 40 rebounds.
lol jokic has 12 rebounds
If you want a reason not to trade Mitch. Jokic is it.
Jokic triple-double before halftime?
Joker falling short of the first quarter triple double like a total chump
My dream scenario is Phoenix tears it down and we trade RJ and every draft pick for Booker.
Nuggets passing may raise Red Holzman from the dead.
no triple double just 19-16-6
No wonder he lost the MVP vote
Speaking of MVPs the Blue Jays are idiots for pissing off Judge.
The nuggets have a dubious bench….brown and 75 yr old Jeff green
The Nuggets have a lot of dubious players not named Jokic
Great game… er… 3 quarters
Jokic coming out party to the uninitiated. Denver is fun to watch. Only team left I can root for
If the Nuggets blow this one they may never recover
I wonder if Denver fans would like a JAG like Grimes to have in their rotation, I doubt it
Imagine being Joker, putting up that line, and still having the game this close.
Shoot…even Fournier would be a step up for the nuggets…is Reggie Jackson on their bench,…why can’t he get any run?
Even Murray who went off was a huge defensive liability. They went at him every possession down the stretch.
Reaves with a huge game. Hachimura
also a huge game and looks like the answer to Jokic on the defensive end unless Denver can force AD to the perimeter.
Reggie is cooked
Darvin Ham seems like a good coach
Fuck the Spurs
Damn straight, tastycakes.
These lotteries are so fucking rigged to favor these welfare teams who can profit while tanking bc they’re stealing money from the real teams.
Chris Paul, AD, Zion to the Pelicans. Robinson, Duncan, Wemby to San Antonio. So many more.
Here’s the easiest fix to tanking of all time: base the odds on a 20 year rolling record. And to make sure the same damn teams don’t keep winning over and over, weigh past lottery success.
It’s so damn easy but these small market teams run the league like those damn CONCACAF islands run FIFA.
San Antonio hasn’t picked in the top 8 in over 25 years. They’ve picked in the top 10 five times in the history of their franchise: Alvin Robertson, David Robinson, Sean Elliot, Duncan, and Sochan. That’s all their top-10 picks over 50 years. It’s hard to get a small-market conspiracy indictment in general, but certainly not with that kind of admissible evidence.
If I’m counting right, the Spurs have been in the lottery 7 times and have now won 3 of them.
And you forgot Cleveland who won 3 out of 4 years after LeBron left!
