    If you ever had any questions.....

    About the NBA office and whether they are in fact neutral or anti-Knick?


    They are planning to move forward with 22 teams, exactly enough for the Knicks to miss the cut to play for the 8th seed.

    We are not getting the #1 pick in my lifetime.

    8 teams out and 6 teams in.

    I could understand if you were mathematically eliminated in the standings, but the rationale seems arbitrary. They looked at it and said, "how many should we eliminate from each conference?" "at least 4, because we don't want the Knicks in, we still get more than 2/3 of teams in and get enough votes to ratify the plan, but still keep the Knicks out!!"

    Better off, we would probably go have a winning streak, and wind up picking 10th-12th

    Lmao yeah they want a major big market team out. Please get out of here. They did it based on records. The Knicks didnít deserve to be in. No way. What would even be the point.

    The NBA is doing the Knicks a favor, ending their season.

    Traditionally, the Knicks sabotage themselves when it comes to the lottery.

    The 2019-20 is no different. Thanks to a .500 February, the Knicks went from having a top 3 chance at the #1 pick to 6th best chance.

    The best franchises make their own luck. The Knicks aren't one of them yet.

    At least we won't get to see Steve Mills look of disappointment every time the Knicks fail to get the #1 pick.

    It wasnít arbitrary. They included all teams within 5.5 games of a playoff spot because history showed that teams further out with that many games left had almost next to no shot of making it.

    The Knicks were 9.5 games out having already played 66 games. Also, they were not the first team out. Charlotte and Chicago have better records and also did not make it.

    There isnít an equal number of Eastern conference and Western conference teams included. 13 teams from the West, only 9 from the East. Only 2 Western conference teams didnít make it and rightfully so.

    At least get your facts straight before claiming conspiracy.

    Also, since they are only going to play 8 more regular season games, the Knicks are mathematically eliminated.

    Like someone mentioned, the Knicks need to make their own luck not hope for gifts from the league. You want the number 1 pick, lose more games. You want to be included in the playoffs, donít be such a garbage team.

    I donít understand how you donít believe in tanking yet bring up them not getting the top pick. It goes hand in hand. The Knicks have been too busy sucking just enough to reduce their lottery odds and to be nowhere near competing for a playoff spot. Maybe you can now understand why fans get frustrated. The team is in no manís land hoping for a bailout, meanwhile other teams are going for it one way or another.
