                      If you gonna watch old moves then move to the bleachers and specktate. If you gonna played the game then form you positions that gets no fouls or out of bounds and can shoot an ball from half court.

                            Don't ever iterate what kind of players the Knicks have because it always brings back memories of what the Knicks thought they would get: KYRIE, DURANT, ZION, THANOS, GOKU.

                                                Most people: the knicks are bad.

                                                SAS:'re right and here's why.

                                                  Who cares about the Knicks AND who cares about KD!!! Both of them will never win in the foreseeable future. Will, at least in the distant future Knicks may win, next century when no one care anymore and no one knows what basketball is. And as for KD, not a chance.

                                                    He certainly loves to give it when the Cowboys lose but can't take it when you bring up the Knicks 😂
