Meet, Henry Ellenson, the new king of New York. Ellenson is a failed 2016 first round draft pick by the Detroit Pistons who recently signed a 10-day deal and instantly became the most clutch player in the league.
On Tuesday night, he helped the Knicks win their second game in a row against the Orlando Magic with 13 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals and 3-for-6 shooting from behind the 3-point line in a career-high 36 minutes.
By the way, the irony of Detroit waiving Ellenson so that they can sign Wayne Ellington for his 3-point shooting only to have Ellenson join the Knicks and instantly become the best 3-point shooter on the team is hilarious.
The Knicks haven’t lost a game since signing Ellenson. Fuck tanking, the Knicks might end up playing the Indiana Pacers in the first round if Henry Ellenson continues to singlehandedly win games.
Where do you think he stands in the MVP race? Above Giannis and behind James Harden? Yea, that seems fair. Just wait until Ellenson’s 30 point scoring streak starts. It’s a wrap for the NBA.
Here’s what Ellenson said about his huge night at MSG:
“Being at the Garden, growing up watching Melo [Carmelo Anthony] as my favorite player. I just want to keep it going. I had one good game. I’ll enjoy it tonight but it’s back to work tomorrow.’’
Oh no, he’s a Carmelo Anthony fan. Nevermind, he’s going to get a max contract with a no-trade clause for no reason and ruin the franchise for the next half-decade. Shit.
Also, SEEE YAAAAAA Luke Kornet.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Henry Ellenson is going to steal the MVP award. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Follow on Instagram so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
