If you’re a Nets fan, you have the right to laugh and make fun of them - you pipped them to their top two targets - but for the rest of the NBA? They have no reason to laugh. If anything, the Knicks front office should be praised for what they did.
Looking around Oracle Arena after the clinching Game 6 in this year’s NBA Finals, Kawhi Leonard, with a fresh cap on his head and his teammates buzzing around him, took everything in. He held the Larry O’Brien trophy with the delicateness of a new born, and gushed over it adoringly.

Barrett to play in Madison Square Garden for the foreseeable future.
New York Knicks are willing to listen to trade offers for point guard Frank Ntilikina, according to SNY’s Ian Begley.
But for once in a blue moon, the Knicks actually seem like they have a plan and they seem like they’re going to stick to it. It’s like Doctor Strange from Infinity War. There are fourteen million six hundred and five outcomes for the next decade or so of the NBA, and there’s only one where the Knicks can win. By sticking to their plan.
Look away now New York. The New Orleans Pelicans won the NBA Draft Lottery. Zion Williamson will be a Pelican.
New York Knicks finished with the worst record in the NBA, winning just 17 games. The Knicks have not made the postseason since 2012/13 and have finished under .400 for five consecutive campaigns.
