                  SAS "It was Zion or nothing"
                  Knicks fans "Thank god, we didn't draft him" lol
                  Who watch this again after Zion got injured????

                    Facts. If we would have drafted him we would be the laughing stock of the leauge with all the Knicks hate. Now let them watch RJ Barrett win Rookie of the year. I love it.

                      Exactly how I felt....Knicks and their fans have been jobbed by the owner, front office, the NBA league as a whole, and the draft system....It’s really unfair that the Knicks who have needed a revival for years had their best chance and didn’t get 1 or 2 and now they’ll be terrible forever. Hope is gone in the NBA for me.

                                  Knicks fans, this is the sign that the basketball gods hate you for the incompetent ownership of James Dolan. The best you can do is exorcise him from the organization and pray to the gods for forgiveness...

                                      They only had a 14% chance for the 1st pick everyone was acting like they automatically had it

                                        After they did not get the 5th pick, with the Lakers, Memphis and Orleans in the race, the Knicks hat the highest chance of getting the first.
