A team that was planned to be where we are now instead of two years is a success. It would be delusional for anyone to think that this team will have over 30 wins by the end of the season. News flash, they are up passing expectation above 37 wins, and I still see them winning more. We can all agree that this is not a super team. But to see them being where they are today far exceeds expectations and shows that they are having success with the cards they have been dealt with. As an organization, you guys have to Stop being too subjective regarding anything that comes from the Knicks and start giving props when credit is due. As much as I see that the point you guys do what you do is for entertainment, Molly and Max Remember that when you guys don't call it right. And attack an organization. You are also attacking the fan base. The last time I checked, this is the #1 Franchise when it comes to basketball, and the reason for that is because these fans are loyal and continue to be devoted to their team.

Andy Broqueza Пре месец
They did not disrespect the Knicks tho. SAS even openly admitted he supports the Knicks and the Knicks winning streaks have been overly broadcasted in ESPN and both Max and Molly congratulated the Knicks for their wins. But, the bigger question is the Top #4 Knicks can win against the elite teams especially in the West? The answer is no and they are speaking the truth. This overhype for the Knicks in the media had suddenly went away because they lost to the Nuggets and the Suns.

Nobody said the Knicks are trash. The problem is the Knicks are overhype by SAS himself. Like SAS made the Knicks look the best team in the league in his Instagram and in ESPN and the Knicks are not even in the Top 5 Power rankings team in the league. This SAS overhype of the Knicks ended when the Knicks can’t even win against now from the Nuggets and the Suns.

Can someone tell Molly and Max to let SAS have his moment. No one is saying the Knicks is going to beat the Sixers, Nets, or Bucks in a 7 game series. But the Knicks will make those series as difficult as possible. Even if they get swept. Also, the few games the Knicks lost to the Sixers and Nets all came down to the final possession.

LOL, It's hilarious vids man. When he goes all fanboy over the Knicks. It's good seeing this kind of enthusiasm! The Knicks could cause an upset if they make the second round! That's why it's called an UPSET! There have been bigger upsets in sports. So, who knows? The Knicks get home-court advantage in the first round??-- they can beat the Hawks in the first round. If they get a banged-up Nets or whoever in the second round, who knows? I think if the Knicks make it to the second round-- that is an unbelievably successful season! That I feel at this point is the goal- make the playoffs in that 4/5th seed and push for the second round!
DuranimusPrime Пре месец
@Andy Broqueza You can come up with all the scenarios you want and hate on the Knicks-- that's your right to clown off. But, regardless, this has been a successful season for the franchise. The Knicks have been a losing team for years. As an organization, they're making progress. btw, they beat the Clips and might come out of the west trip at worst, splitting wins and losses.

The Knicks are 12-2 in the last 14 and they are making a big deal about a lost. Every team in the league get this work at some point over the long season.
Andy Broqueza
Andy Broqueza Пре месец
So now, the Suns had 14-2 winning streak this season and they are not even broadcasted especially in ESPN. And you’re mad that it is a big deal for them that you lose wherein fact the Knicks have been overhype last month with their winning streak. As of today, the Knicks streak were 12-3 and may end up 12-5 if they lose against the clippers or the lakers. You should thank them that despite the loss you’re still broadcasted wherein the Suns have been left behind and didn’t recognize with their winning streak which is more than the winning streak of the Knicks.

@Andy Broqueza that's debatable. Better talent? Yes. If we going by talent knicks have 12 teams in the east better than them. If by stats of defense and offense only 8 in my opinion. Especially in playoffs where they allow more physical play.
Andy Broqueza
Andy Broqueza Пре месец
8 teams you serious? There’s 12 teams better than the Knicks right now 7 from the West and 5 from the east which includes Heat and Celtics. The Knicks are not even in the Top 10 in the power rankings so stop being delusional. If you put the Knicks in the West they will be in the play-in tournament with their seeding and you think there were 8 teams better than them? Whatttt?????? And if you add another star for sure the Knicks will not end up in the NBA Top 5 rankings.

That take is ridiculous and absurd. You win in the 3 quarters and then you still lose in the end so in the end they can’t stand against top teams in the NBA. It’s not about who wins in the first 3 quarters because that’s not a factor. A mediocre or low level teams can also win the first 3 quarters but lose in the end so that take is pretty dumb.

Against Brooklyn, Philly and Miami the Knicks have lost all those games by a margin of two or three points. They got blown out by Milwaukee but not before their first win of the season which is a twenty point victory against the same Milwaukee Bucks. They also blew out the Jazz before getting blown out by Utah later. Max wants to point out all of the subpar teams the Knicks beat during the streak but somehow doesn't want to acknowledge the fact that all the other elite teams have beat the same subpar teams in order to have their records...that's how it works! By the way the same Nuggets that just blew out the Knicks are the same Nuggets that lost to the Lakers without LeBron. At the same time the Knicks were getting blown out so were the Phoenix Suns by the Hawks, a team the Knicks have swept this season. What does it amount to? Nothing. Once again, Max slants facts to suit his own agenda which is discrediting the Knicks. Once again, Stephen A. fails to make the sound argument to debate Max. I just want a crack at Max. Honestly, you don't have to pay me anything, all I want is a shot in a head to head debate with Max about the Knicks and a witness. That's it.
