I believe Jason Whitlock truly believes the **** he spews, Stephen A. exaggerates it to the mpth degree and throws his sources around to keep his integrity ongoing to the common fan that isn't all into analytics, stats etc.


Bayless is a real life idiot though. He used to be a local sports beat reporter in San Jose before he was a talking head. He was just as stupid when he was trying to be smart as he is now.

Knicks have made a finals the past 25 years and won some playoff games. They are far from the most cursed team in the NBA. They are average.

As for real life SAS, he's actually a normal, good dude.

You all are getting played and working to a T

I met him in real life and he acted exactly like he does on TV. lol.

They're definitely not cursed. They play in a market that players WANT to go to and basically have an unlimited budget.

They're not cursed. They've simply done relatively little given the massive amount of advantages and resources they have.

The Knicks got what they deserved. Most of the sensible fans abandoned that franchise a long time ago, now all that's left is James Dolan and people who somehow don't realize the problem.

They're only cursed if you consider legendary levels of stupidity and incompetence a curse.

To be fair to the Knicks...they did do everything they possibly could...either on purpose or by accident to get the highest odds for most ping pong balls. But as we know in the last few days...some times you just need the balls to bounce the right way. :lol:

The Knicks are still set up nicely to make a run for KD, AD, and Kyrie/Kemba. They lucked out that LA didn't finish higher than 4.

It’s sad that s*hit like this is considered entertainment and SAS is making millions with his circus.

Very sad.

I don’t understand this guy


No, he's not on crack. Alot of Knicks fans feel that way. Knicks fans wanted Zion and that he was the prize of this draft.



14% chance.

Landing 3 was a better than average result for NY

How **** stupid are people?

The 'NBA gods' landed New York a better pick than average given their odds. They had like a 58% chance of picking 4 or lower.

It's like 95% of people weren't aware of the changes in the lottery.
