I'm too old to get this thread title. Or out of touch...whichever. I know nothing about Young Ne Yo but...i guess he's the Jarret Jack doppelganger? That makes some sense now. Funny that Lee called him that. :lol: I missed it.

Does team tank want to lose to ****? I can't stand losing to ****!! Especially when we are 12-12 and they are 3-20! I just can't! The 90's Bulls games? Intense hatred for that team and those fans!!!

I want to crush them and the next 5 games after that at least. I hate all of the next few teams and want to beat OKC even though I don't hate them for many obvious reasons.

I know how bad we need to get a cheap young stud in this draft. I know losses are better for that to happen. I also know draft picks bust and there are zero guarantees. I also know the players/coaches don't want to lose and aren't allowed to lose on purpose. I also know winning is fun.

Like KnicksGod said in another thread...it's a catch 22.

I am enjoying this season. That's all I know. It's confusing but, it's entertaining as hell. I just pray we find one of the talents that always fall in the draft if we win. I can't pray for injuries and root for losses. I don't expect the FO to blow up a playoff contending/.500 team either.

I didn't expect to be anywhere near 12-12. I thought we'd be lucky to win 25-30. 23 was my guess. We're halfway there 1/4 of the way in.

On to Chicago!

Please, Knicks, do not get embarrassed by losing to the 3-20 Bulls. Give them another loss to further ensure our 2nd round pick will be number 31.

Normally, I'd say to get Jack as many minutes as possible to help preserve a win but in this case we may get a chance to preserve HIM for a stouter foe.

Bulls are currently sitting at 3-20 record and this will be a back-to-back game for them - so if we can't win this one then we really are hopeless on the road.

So if I look up "Trap Game" in the dictionary, do we see this thread?

Yeah but what has it gotten them? I remember they drafted Chandler, Curry, Rose, Butler, etc and having nothing to show for it other than some playoff victories. Goes to show that tanking isn't always the way to go.

Psssst: Bulls didn't tank the year they drafted Rose, they got lucky with their 1.7% chance from the 9th spot.

both Timmy and Harris were playing well until THjr got hurt unfortunetly. Harris shooting averages at least have been coming back down to earth a bit over the last 2 weeks but I have been very very impressed Harris looks to be making a huge impact defensively this year than the previous two years. So I'm glad he is locking in on that end. Making him a complete 2 way player.

And the Heat, who tanked like crazy, ended up with Beasley :lol:
