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.
The Los Angeles Lakers got some lottery luck on Tuesday night, as they landed the fourth overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Look away now New York. The New Orleans Pelicans won the NBA Draft Lottery. Zion Williamson will be a Pelican.
Boston Celtics were knocked out of the playoffs by the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. Attention turns to Kyrie Irving’s free agency after a limp, and almost embarrassing, exit from the postseason.
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.
In all seriousness, the Celtics currently have a few small issues rather than a big one, which is much easier to deal with. Whether some of the young guys have been put off by the constant Anthony Davis rumours with the team, I don’t know. The only way we will find out is if the team put their heads down and work for each other and the team, rather than themselves.
All in all, Ainge has used his business brain to good use once again. He is currently playing chess whilst everyone else is playing checkers and it’s fantastic to watch. The next couple of days will be the be all and end all for his masterplan but either way, you have to rate his effort in stopping LA getting their big three together.
The weeks leading up to the NBA trade deadline have been heating up, blockbuster trades, trade requests and ambiguous quotes are coming out left, right and centre. One of the main players in this rumour mill is Kyrie Irving.
The NBA world has been rocked the past week or so with rumours and even a major trade occurring. It all started with Anthony Davis requesting a trade, through his agent, from the New Orleans Pelicans. People had an idea this was coming, ever since AD hired LeBron James’ agent as his own, however, some were speculating he would wait until his current contract was up to move out to LA.
New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis has expressed his concern with the franchise, as reported by Adrian Wojnarowski.
