As a NY Knick fan, it is safe to say the playoffs are out of the question but the race for the #1 pick is just starting to heat up. With the loss to the Nuggets last night, the Knicks are slowly climbing into the race and could be a dark horse contender for the maximum # of ping pong balls.....

The maximum number of ping pongs goes to the last place time right? I don't think the Knicks will drop that much, out of those teams listed I think the only two that could pass them are Houston, because Francis by himself can win some games, and Denver, because Howard and Hardaway are looking pretty good and they have McDyess back. But still, they could get lucky and get the number one pick. Would they take Jason Williams?
The #1 pick WILL end up where it belongs, the home of basketball's best laughingstocks, DA BULLS! And when we get it, I will be unhappy with anyone except one pick. I want Yao Ming. Put that giant in our middle and let it be the culmination of Krause's romance with non-US ballplayers.
I would kindly like to point out that the Grizzlies, in every form of the word(s), both suck and blow at the same time. With that being said, they suck so bad that they couldn't even get the #1 pick if they were the only team eligible for it. They are they bad, ladies and gentlemen. Ping pong balls have no claim on the living, breathing suck that is the Memphis Grizzlies. If, by some miracle, the Grizzlies manage to not lose 9 games the rest of this season, this will be their best season yet. (I believe it's 9 games.) Now you cannot deny a claim like that to the #1 lottery pick, can you?
There is nothing more fun than watching the crappy teams fight it out for the right to have more ping-pong balls than anyone else in the league.
With that said, watch out for Golden State. That is a team without hope. They could get cold and lose 10 in a row.
You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling towards you. You reach down and flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over. But it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.
The interesting thing to me at least is this, instead of David Stern sitting and looking at the game tape and seeing if there is any real, REAL favoritism amongs refs (and we all know there is) he just fines VG and threatens him with a ban.
