Can't say that when I watched him at Michigan State that I expected Miles Bridges to be one of the best in-game dunkers in NBA history but here we are.

The new dream is the Knicks/Celts 4 vs 5 matchup and the Knicks win in 7 (I'm not gonna pretend they can beat any of the top 3).

Also the Wiz have won 4 in a row and are tied for that last play-in spot? Oh god.

I am quite happy the Knicks are going to make the playoffs. It will be good to have them playing playoff basketball again. It's been far, far too long. Just keep finding good young players and then pray Zion comes to the Knicks when he hits free agency.

It's funnier that they're doing this with their top 10 pick that was supposed to be NBA ready/by far the oldest guy in the lottery being a complete nothing

Yeah. It's hard to tell if it's Toppin doesn't have talent or not because I think Thibs hates him because he's not a very good defender. He gets almost no minutes, but when he does he has flashed occasionally on the offensive end.

It's also helped Quickley turned out to be a really solid player and RJ Barrett apparently found his three point shot out of nowhere.

RJ Barrett can’t even legally drink and we’re shocked he improved lol.

Also drafting Toppin but then landing Quickley kinda reminds me of when we drafted Papa Johns and somehow finagled Bogi from the Suns with our late pick.

tbf Bogi had said he wasn't going to come over until year 3 or something because then he could opt into FA but the Kings convinced him, Vlade and the rest of the Eastern Bloc

I'm not surprised at all. He showed a lot of flashes last year. Him going from being a poor three point shooter to arguably being our best three point shooter right now is something entirely different. Maybe he's just hit a nice hot streak, but they say he's been going nuts in the gym after practices.

I'd argue getting Zion, at least with the current state of the Knicks, would make us a contender. Maybe not the favorites, but certainly with a chance to make the Finals.

Quickley-Barrett-Randle-Zion-Noel is pretty damn good. Assuming we would get Zion in free agency (and re-sign Randle) in a few years and if Barrett/Quickley continue to improve like they have, that could be pretty badass combo with a team that you know will play good defense with Thibs.

Okay, lemme take off my homer hat now and go back to just being happy about making the playoffs.

Shooting is the easiest thing to teach in basketball. Always remember that any time someone yells “he shot x% from 3!!!!” as an 18 year old.

It’s gonna be interesting how much Zion would be willing to leave to NY. He’s undoubtedly going to be offered the max extension, and if he declines he’d have to wait two years of uncertainty. The raise doesn’t kick in immediately anyway so I’d do it.

Hey, at least it didn't take a fat James Harden crying his way out to make our team relevant. Going to be that much sweeter when the Nets lose in the playoffs and then are bad for 20 years because they have no draft capital.

"HOW'D IT ALL GO WRONG? WE HAVE THREE SUPERSTARS AND JOE HARRIS?!"

Hey, I only want Zion. Everyone else can stuff it.

And for the record, I hated the Melo/Stoudemire signings.
