Knicks fans had high hopes coming into the NBA draft lottery but they ended up getting screwed once again.
Going into the lottery the Knicks had a 9 percent chance of landing the #1 pick and a 27 percent chance of picking up a top-five pick.
Unfortunately for the Knicks, they ended up with the 8th spot in the draft.
