When your team starts the season 4-11 and their best player is already injured, you have to get excited about anything that will make you remotely happy.  So I am going to get psyched about the Greek Streak pinning people against the backboard like Leon did during his imaginary games in Above The Rim.  Do I wish that my team was competing for an Eastern Conference title like the Raptors or the #1 pick like the Sixers?  Sure.  But when life hands you lemons as a Knicks fan, you are just grateful that Isiah Thomas isn’t here to tell you that they are strawberries.

Sure the Greek Streak is raw as hell, but an athletic block is more exciting than almost any play on the court that isn’t a dunk.  I almost had more fun watching those YouTube highlights than I have had watching the Knicks all season.  Whenever Phil is done purging the roster of hot garbage,  Antetokounmpo needs to get a call up to The Association.  The guy hustles, plays with an infectious energy, and will immediately be a crowd favorite at The Garden.  Plus I will 100% be talking myself into The Greek Freak signing with the Knicks in a few years just because his brother plays here.  That’s what being a Knicks fan is all about now.  Looking forward to next year’s draft (when we actually have a 1st round pick) and convincing yourself that the best free agents will want to play in a big, cold city with an income tax and a volume shooting superstar.  #Knickstape, baby!
