Who isn’t pumped up? The playoffs begin this Saturday!
Just as the New York Knicks have shrugged off a squeezed-in schedule, at last in the final week comes an abrupt postseason, smack in their faces.
It isn’t going to be easy. It looks like the worst-case scenario is developing: Seventh-seeded New York will be heading to second-seeded Miami to face the Heat for Game 1.
But, wait a second, what if the Knicks slip that scene in Round 1?
There’s still a chance.
After going 15-5 under Mike Woodson, including wins against the 76ers, Bucks, Magic, Bulls, Celtics and a solid win over the Hawks minus Tyson Chandler, the Knicks appear to have turned a corner—a step they always seem on the verge of making but never do.
Are they finally for real?
What if a whole different scenario develops over the next few days?
Let’s boldly go where no one else is going.
