10 reasons to still be an optimistic Knicks fan

Kristaps Porzingis is gone. This is my generation’s JFK. The single shining star in our decrepit organization is gone. But: there are still plenty of reasons to have faith as a Knicks fan. Let’s begin.

  1. We have a shot at the #1 pick in the NBA draft.
  2. Season tickets are going to be cheaper next year.
  3. We really got a steal from the Mavs in….2005’s best High School player from Wisconsin, Wesley Matthews.
  4. If you hold your breath long enough, things will start to go dark and you’ll slip into a peaceful blackness. Sure, you wake up, but for a few glorious moments of zen it’s almost like you won’t. It’s so beautiful.
  5. You can take the 2/3 Train directly from MSG to the Barclays Center and see the Nets.
  6. Mel Brooks is still alive. I did not know that.
  7. Remember that time we killed Bin Laden? Fuck yeah.
  8. We have the chance to miss out on signing not one, but TWO maximum-salary free agents this off-season. Our hopes will never be higher.
  9. Game of Thrones comes back in April.
  10. We’re 48 hours away from Melo: Round 2.

Drink up, Knicks fans. God knows we need it.
