  • The NBA held their 2022 Draft on Thursday, June 23..
  • As they always do, the New York Knicks found a way to absolutely botch virtually every decision.
  • Knicks fans and the NBA world spent the night dunking on the moribund organization.

As a former New Jersey Nets fan, I’ve been without an NBA team for a decade now ever since the organization traded in the Izod Center (lol) in East Rutherford (also lol) for the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn.

And as for the Knicks, well… the Knicks have been a trainwreck virtually my entire life. I have faint memories of the Ewing teams from the late 90s and the Sprewell/Houston days from the early 2000s — even that *one* fun season with Melo and Amare back in 2012 — but other than that, it’s nothing but disaster after disaster.
