The “Final Four” of the NBA is now set and if you aren’t a fan of one of the four teams you’re already looking ahead to the draft.


Being a Knicks fan, I’ve been looking forward to the draft since October. Even though the Knicks have only a 2.8 percent chance of winning the NBA Draft Lottery, I am still optimistic.


If Dolan plays his cards right, the Knicks can move up one of those top two spots. It’s no secret the Knicks need help, there hasn’t been a solid team since Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing left and they haven’t made the playoffs since 2004, when they did it with a losing record.


The past few seasons have literally been a soap opera, reality TV at its best, except the drama was real, non-scripted.


As a Knicks fan the rebuilding excuse is starting to wear thin when defending the team. The Knicks do have a few solid players including David Lee, Chris Duhon and Wilson Chandler.


They are in desperate need of some all around players. Of course on the top of quite a few teams wish lists are Blake Griffin and Stephen Curry. I think Earl Clark, DeMar DeRozan and of course a healthy Ty Lawson could work for the Knicks.


Let’s not forget about all the quality free agents out there like Ben Gordon, Mike Bibby and Carlos Boozer to name a few. There's also trade possibilities.


It's the NBA, it's where amazing happens.


In preparation for the NBA Draft Lottery tomorrow night, I have my popcorn, my assortment of Knicks lucky charms and a star to wish for results like the 1985 NBA Draft Lottery.


Speaking of the 1985 NBA Draft, rest in peace to Wayman Tisdale. He was the No. 2 pick that year and had an amazing career both on and off the court.


Knicks Nation, we need some positive energy for tomorrow night. I have been a loyal fan for many years. I hate to say it, but I’m a losing season away from finding a new team.
