It's almost not funny how bad the Knicks are this year (I said almost). I've gone from not watching them at all last year to watching every game I can this year to see how bad they play.
The team had been playing better, but seemed to fall off again as they've lost 5 of their last 7. All of the nonsense that's happened this year, their 14-31 record, and a second to last place standing in their conference doesn't matter to Magic Johnson. No Earvin seems to think that the Knicks are making the playoffs, and might even be a seven seed (!?). From the NY Post via Sports By Brooks...
“They’re going to make the playoffs. They’re going to be a tough seventh, eighth seed too, especially now that they’re looking like they’re turning the corner.Riiiiiight. I think Magic should stick to opening movie theaters for awhile. I also pray this comes up on Inside the NBA tonight.
“I think they’re going to make the run because everyone is comfortable in their roles. And everybody is playing hard. You could see they are turning the corner. Now everyone knows their roles.’’
“I can see when teams are starting to make their run. I think they’ll settle in after the All-Star break and make their run. Because there’s no way I don’t see them making the seven and eighth seed when I look at the East.’’
