Tom Thibodeau, A Man Who Has Never Lied His Entire Life, Says New York Is Synonymous With Winning And Championships

Did I want Thibs to be the Knicks head coach? Nope. I wanted a young assistant, but he's not Jason Kidd and he's our guy now, so it's time to mount up.

Remember 1999? 

What about 1994? 

Not every franchise can make 2 Finals appearances since 1994. 

This goddamn franchise. Whatever, let's go Thibs or whatever.
