BBNBA: The Knicks are a train wreck

Screen Shot 2017-01-20 at 12.33.36 AM

For the past few years, the New York Knicks have been finding new ways to surround Carmelo Anthony with one or two good players, as well as a whole heap of terrible players. A lot of times, it ends up in disaster. Take away the 2012-13 season and the Knicks haven’t been good since 1999-2000. While it may be torture for Knicks fans everywhere, their misfortune leads to plays like the clip below. 13 seconds remaining, down by 3, and the Knicks don’t even attempt a shot. I’m convinced the only reason Melo wants to stay in New York is that he can do whatever he wants for that team and he’s still going to be the main guy until Porzingis becomes a super star.

The Knicks had the ball, down 3, with 12 seconds left…they failed to get a shot up.

Moving on to former UK guys now. Enough of my making fun of the Knicks.

The Wizards’ social media staff were kind enough to put together all of Wall’s highlights into one video for us. Props to you guys.

Karl-Anthony Towns took over in the fourth quarter to lead the T’Wolves to a comeback victory over the Clippers. He scored 9 of his team’s last 11. Watching him grow into  a super star is so fun to watch.

How did he even get this shot off?  Are you kidding me?

Big cram for KAT.

Really good off-the-ball movement from Murray here.

    I have come to think Carmelo has resigned himself to losing and obviously doesn’t care as long as he gets paid. With that in mind, he likes being a big deal in the biggest media market and he NEVER has to play in the playoffs. That’s a disaster for most players. I actually think he likes it because while LeBron and company are working for an extra month or two he’s already on the beach sipping umbrella drinks. I honestly think he prefers that to the playoff basketball.

    The Knicks may not have the talent some other teams do but it is ludicrous to say they have “terrible” players. There are no terrible players in the NBA.
