The NBA has reached an agreement with the players union to resume the season. At the end of July, 22 of the league’s 30 teams will reconvene in Orlando, Florida, finish up the regular season and then soon after begin the playoffs and crown a champion for 2019-2020 season.
While a majority of the NBA will meet back up in central Florida, for a handful of teams the season is over. One of those teams, not surprisingly, is the New York Knicks.
For the last decade of so, the New York Knicks have been a laughing stock. They continually spend millions and millions of dollars on players with the hopes of all that cash translating into wins but it hasn’t worked out. Despite being in the country’s biggest media market, a number of high profile, marquee players have avoided the Knicks like the plague.
Well, now it appears the Knicks are still losing without even setting foot on the court or agreeing to another embarrassingly bad contract.
On Tuesday, the Knicks issued a statement on the murder of George Floyd, nearly two weeks after Floyd’s death.
The Knicks were one of the last team’s in the league to issue anything and most people weren’t real thrilled with their effort.
