The 2021 New York Knicks Are The Greatest Team in NBA History

The 2021 New York Knicks just solidified their 8th consecutive win with an overtime victory of Trae Young and them. The W gave New York sole custody of the 4th seed in the Eastern Conference giving them a strong chance of defending home court in the postseason.

Thanks to new head coach Tom Thibeau, the Knicks rank 4th in defensive rating this season. I’ve never seen a Knicks defense play this well before. I’m used to Carmelo Anthony missing a midrange jumper and then staying by the basket to goal hang for a cheap layup after the opposing team easily scores on the 5-on-4 advantage.

This team also has a real MVP candidate for the first time as well.

 

Julius Randle dropped 40 points with 11 boards and 6 dimes. King shit. Randle is averaging 23.9 points on 46% shooting with 10.5 rebounds and 6.1 assists. He’s also improved his 3-point shooting from 27% last season to 41% in 2021.

I truly believe this Knicks team is the greatest team in NBA history and it’s not even close. Who’s better? The 98 Bulls? Laugh out loud. They have Michael Jordan. Cool. Reggie Bullock is putting him in handcuffs. Who’s guarding Julius Randle?

The 73 win Warriors? Steph is a decent shooter, I hear but he’s no Immanuel Quickley. Who’s protecting the rim when Mitch Robinson and Nerlens Noel roll to the basket? Derrick Rose is shaking Klay Thompson right out of his goatee. Alec Burks and Kevin Durant going shot-for-shot in the 4th quarters.

The Miami Heat had a Big 3? Well the 2021 New York Knicks have a Big 15. I mean, LeBron is currently pretending to be injured right now just to avoid getting caught in the Knicks crosshairs.

The most impressive aspect of their 8-game win streak is that there are zero signs of the winning ever ending. The best player is 26 years old. 2020 no. 8 pick, Obi Toppin, is figuring out how to play basketball. Kevin Knox is like, there as well.

Next stop is the NBA Finals. Everyone get vaccinated and I’ll see you at the championship parade this summer.
