What a world are we living in. The New York Knicks beat the Hornets 109-97, extending their winning streak to seven and shocking the NBA. One thing is for certain the league is better off when the Knicks are good, simple as that. Think about this Vegas projected the Knicks having 22 they currently have 32-27 and are sitting in 5th place in the East.
The best defensive team in the league continues to turn heads and taking the league by storm. Everyone was saying when the Knicks headed into the All-Star break a game over .500 that they were ‘lucky’ and the second half of the season would be a reality check since then they have won 13 games and are looking to host a playoff game. It has been a wild season for the Knicks and their fans. This is their best season since 2014 and they are putting themselves in a postseason to make waves.
This team is young, fun, and play hard every night it is a very easy team too root for and this team is just so much fun it is tough to put into words. This is what us fans have been watching for years just a team that plays competitive basketball and Tom Thibedou has done that with this roster.
Overachieving or not you can’t take anything away from them. Julius Randle is leading this team and playing at an All-NBA level, RJ Barrett has made a huge jump in year two and is flashing All-Star potential. I don’t know how the rest of the season will play out or when this winning streak will end but I don’t want that to happen anytime soon. Imagine if a superstar ends up on this team oh boy!
