No pal. It’s nice to ponder these “what ifs”, like if the last five minutes of the 2013 prelim final never happened, if Geelong kept their 20 point lead after 3 quarter time, and Hawthorn’s 3 peat never happened. It’s likely that Geelong wouldn’t have beaten Freo in the Grand Final the following weekend.
But that Knicks side was Michael’s bunny. Over and over and over again. They’d gone 69–13 that season. And after a 7 game slog against Miami, Michael and Scottie were waiting to beat New York. You can ponder it all you like, but Michael wasn’t losing.
