Knicks Win Final Game, Hurting Their Draft Chances, and Fans Went Ballistic (TWEETS)
We can safely say that Knicks fans have been put through a lot over the past, uh, 25 years or so, but even when the team looks poised to stumble its way into a draft pick, the fans find fault with some meaningless, late-season success.
Last night, the Knicks won their final game, which would be nice, but the victory now puts them even with Minnesota for the sixth “seed” in the draft, a far cry from the lucrative top spots in this year’s talent-heavy draft.
Fans and media took notice and weren’t thrilled.
Knicks win. They are tied with Minnesota for 6th seed. Drawing Tuesday. Knicks could fall to 7th seed and even pick 10th in draft.

If Knicks win this game, they have to coin flip the Wolves for the 6th worst record.

Well, I think predicting you’re going to miss out on the next Steph Curry is a little dramatic, but…I see their point.
