The NBA is no stranger to predictions.
Its been known to do that since the NBA was founded in 1917.
But it has only done so once in the last 10 years.
So when the New York Knicks were named the Eastern Conference champs for the first time in history last season, the NBA went from being a league known for prediction to one that was known for being a joke.
The Knicks were so bad that they lost the season.
Then the Washington Wizards, who had just won the title, won the NBA Finals.
And the Warriors beat the Cavaliers in the NBA finals, but the Knicks went on to lose to the Los Angeles Lakers in seven games.
That left the league with just one playoff appearance since it was founded.
And that was on March 4, 2020, when the Dallas Mavericks were eliminated by the Washington Bullets.
There is no doubt that the Knicks, Mavericks, Wizards, and Warriors were all terrible teams that missed the playoffs.
But they were all great teams that did not miss the playoffs at all.
The only team in the league that made the playoffs for a second straight year was the Minnesota Timberwolves.
But that was a team that was good enough to win the Western Conference Finals a year later.
It had the potential to be a top-three seed.
The question is why was that team so terrible?
Because they were bad?
There was no real consensus on the answer to that question, because the Knicks were a team with one goal in mind: to be bad.
That goal is to be good.
They did that, in a lot of ways, by being the worst team in basketball.
They played the most defensive and defensive-oriented basketball of any team in all of sports.
They also had the most total turnovers per game.
They shot at a ridiculous rate, with a 43.9 percent effective field goal percentage, the fifth highest rate in the history of the league.
They made shots at a ludicrous rate, taking 4.5 more field goals per game than anyone else in the entire league.
All of this made them the worst in the world at making those types of shots.
And it was even worse on offense, with the Knicks shooting only 41.1 percent from the field.
And all of this was while their defense was terrible.
They allowed the fifth-most points per 100 possessions, the third-lowest rate of any NBA team.
And, most damning of all, they shot the ball at a rate that was the third highest in the modern NBA.
The reason that they were so terrible, in other words, was that they played terrible basketball.
And they were terrible for a reason that has nothing to do with basketball.
The answer is the Knicks defense.
It was one of the worst defensive teams in the National Basketball Association over the past decade.
The problem was, they played so bad because they were playing bad defense.
Because the Knicks defensive game plan was to do the exact opposite of what everyone else did.
It is about setting up your guys for success.
It starts with making sure that you have a defensive rebounder on your team.
The way the Knicks have done that is by having the ball in the back of their hands, and then forcing teams to pass them the ball.
If they pass it, they have a chance to score.
That means that if you can get a big, physical rebounder, you have another chance to get a shot off.
But if you pass it to someone who is smaller, who has a shorter wingspan, who is not a rim protector, and who has trouble shooting the ball, it can backfire.
That is the way the New Yorkers defense has been designed.
They are a team of bigs and smalls, bigs that can run the floor and small men that can’t, because they can’t really help.
The difference is that the bigs can’t help the ball get to the basket.
The bigs are too big, because, well, that’s what they do.
The smalls are not big enough, because that’s just what they are.
So the Knicks do everything they can to prevent the offense from getting to the rim.
And then they force teams to give up big shots by not having the defense defend the perimeter.
The best example of this can be seen by watching the New Knicks offense against the Los Angles Lakers last season.
Here is how they played the Lakers offense last season: As you can see, the Lakers are one of those teams that is so great at forcing turnovers.
They make so many plays on defense.
But, they also have a big man who can shoot the ball that can also pass the ball to a big or small man.
And even when they try to make their guys score, they still get beat.
They have a guy who shoots the ball who can pass the floor to someone else.
They don’t have a player who shoots from the perimeter who can get to his teammates.
They do not have a man who shoots a lot
