They get a ton of hate for being optimistic about their teams playoff chances. While last year they never had a real chance against the Heat, I think they certainly had a chance two years ago if the team was healthy against the Celtics. Yet Knicks fans were called arrogant for believing they had a chance. After all, they went 0-4 against Boston in the regular season.
Well here we are and the tables are turned. The Celtics go 1-3 against the Knicks this season and a ton of people think the Celtics have a real chance, if not being the outright favorites. No one seems to think they're being arrogant for believing this.
inb4 the Celtics have proven themselves. This isn't the same Celtics team.
Regular season doesn't mean shit when the playoffs come. Call me when they get out of the first round.
Regular season records may not mean as much as some people make them out to believe, but if you watch basketball and understand the game then you know the Knicks are clearly the better team. Keep hating, breh.
Who is saying Knicks should lose? of course Boston have an outside chance but thats it...anything is possible with KG/Pierce on your team.
Go into the playoff game thread and you'll find plenty of people picking the Celtics. That's not my issue either. My issue is that Knicks fans were called arrogant when they were optimistic even though everything said otherwise, but everyone else gets a pass. A bit hypocritical if you ask me.
