Who else heard the 'hidden' advertisement?

First of all getting the #1 pick isn’t easy anymore. The NBA made sure of it. So if you have a 14% chance of getting the first pick and you got the 3rd pick then that’s already good enough.

Why is anybody a Knicks fan anyways?
Robert Weekes
Those lucky, lucky Pelicans. Six teams were ranked lower, and they got the top pick. Ain’t that a bitch for the Knicks !!

The Knicks are allergic to superstars. Carmelo is the only exception & they didn't have much success with him either.
