Ohmygod, ohmygod, ohmygod. I can’t believe Zion actually said that he would like to play with two of the best basketball players in the universe on the record. And he almost even said the Knicks name! If he smiles at us in the hallway, he is as good as ours.
Yeah I know that a player who is about to enter the draft doesn’t have a choice which team he ends up on unless his last name is Manning and the Knicks only have at best a 14% chance to win the 1 pick and get to choose between Zion and RJ Barrett. But having Zion Williamson’s reaction to the thought of playing for the Knicks to go from this:
is about as good as it has felt to be a Knicks fan all season.
I don’t want to say that the Kristaps Porzingis trade marked the moment the Knicks fortunes changed for the better and everything will definitely work out, but the Kristaps Porzingis trade marked the moment the Knicks fortunes changed for the better and everything will definitely work out! This is the year the Knicks cash in on the massive amount of good luck the Basketball Gods owe them in lottery karma and free agency karma.
Time to believe in the impossible dream and buy a shirt!
Damn it feels good to once again be completely sold that a ton of things that are unlikely to happen are going to happen. This shit makes me feel more like a Knicks fan than anything outside of talking about the sound The Garden used to make while the 90s Knicks played.
Play us out, Damian!
