After 8 long and miserable seasons of missing the playoffs, the New York Knicks, much to everyone’s excitement, are back! Not just in terms of post-season, but also relevancy.
After nearly a decade of finishing at the bottom of the ladder, New York Knicks currently sit at the 4th seed following their hot 9-game winning streak.
Julius Randle, declared as the Knicks saviour, dropped 40 points Friday night against the Atlanta Hawks in a double OT thriller. The All-Star has been averaging 30 PPG through their streak on top of 9 RPG and 7 APG.
It’s been a rough century for Knicks fans, for whom the high point was arguably the ‘Linsanity’ period.
However, it seems like good days are heading back to Madison Square Garden as the Knicks hope to secure a top-4 seed. This is all the more important as it will see them secure home-court advantage.
It will be exciting to see Madison Square Garden, known for its electric environment, back to its full capacity as the pandemic eases.
The loyal Knicks fans have longed to see their team be a play-off contender and it seems like they may finally get their wish.
What do you think – are the Knicks a contender this year or are they in for a first-round exit? Let us know in the comments down below!
