MAGIC: KNICKS ARE IN
Walk Off Balk thinks the Magic man may have lost his mind. He cites a NYT article in which Magic Johnson speaks about his Knicks love.
Johnson, the N.B.A. legend and part owner of the Los Angeles Lakers, met with Thomas for about 30 minutes before their teams played Tuesday night. Johnson expressed sympathy and support and made this bold claim about the Knicks: “They’re going to make the playoffs. I think that they’re going to be a tough eight or seven seed, too.”
I can see when teams are starting to make their run,” Johnson said. “And I think that they’ll settle in after the All-Star break and make their run. No way that I don’t see them making that eight, seven seed.”
Johnson said the constant losing, the nonstop criticism and the nightly chants of “Fire Isiah!” at the Garden have “taken a toll” on Thomas.
Only the Heat have won less games than the Knicks in the East. The Knicks are 14-31. Good luck with that.
