If you have siblings, you know where I’m going with this.
If you know where I’m going with this, you might want to stop reading.
But you might be the youngest, oldest or middle child but we’ve all experienced the proverbial tease. The one where you see this wonderful new toy only to be told you can’t have it. Whether it be on television, walking thru the department store or worse, your sibiling has it.
You would do anything for that toy, even the worst chores which you vowed to never volunteer to do. But ultimately, you never get that toy but somewhere inside no matter how much you grow, you secretly always want that toy.
That’s how it feels being a Knicks fan at the moment.
The Knicks are teetering on becoming the team we want them to be. But youth mixed with inconsistent play has us sliding and currently in the midst of a 5 game losing streak. It feels like more at this point and it’s getting hard to watch the games.
Finding a bright spot is pretty tough, but it does seem like Enes Kanter is determined to make an all star team off the bench as he flirted with another 20 point, 20 rebound game Sunday night against the Magic.
Head Coach David Fizdale has decided to let his rookies play significant minutes. Once C Mitchell Robinson figures out how to play great D without getting in foul trouble, he looks to have the potential to be one of the best rim protectors in the league.
Guard Allonzo Trier has made the quick jump from undrafted rookie to starting wing for the Knicks but his inconsistent play is starting to show as well.
Fizdale spoke about how it’s one quarter that puts it out and he’s right. We’ve been in so many games late, but we don’t close.
With everyone looking forward to Zion Williamson, this eras Human Highlight Reel, fans are looking forward to losing and for a once proud franchise, I guess we gotta lose to win again.
But hopefully, we get our names called to be number one, and get that shiny toy and don’t end up 5th or 6th and have to walk thru the department store wishing you had the chance to get that toy.
