As I was skimming through my Twitter timeline this afternoon, I saw a funny tweet from a Knicks fan that asked, “Are the Knicks ever going to win another game?” The question was directed at Alan Hahn – formerly of Newsday and currently part of MSG’s postgame crew. He retweeted the despondent fan and answered, “Gonna go out on a limb here and say yes, they will win another game.” He added a wink at the end of his answer.
Let’s hope so.
Right now, the Knicks are currently in the midst of a six game losing streak. They lost all of the games on their four game homestand and are now a dreadful 6-10 on the season. Amazingly enough there is a team with a longer losing streak at the moment, the poor Toronto Raptors, who have lost eight in a row and are 4-13.
As for our Knicks, maybe all of the squawking we did on the first day of the season after they defeated the Celtics was a tad premature? Especially since the Celtics also aren’t very good this season. They had their own long losing streak snapped and are sitting at 6-9, just ahead of the Knicks in the Atlantic Division standings.
