The Knicks are currently one of the worst teams in the NBA, changing positions with the Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves for the worst record in the NBA. While the 76ers have made it clear they are attempting to lose as many games as possible, the same cannot be said for the Knicks. Anthony has come out and said that tanking is a bad mentality, and he is absolutely right. The Knicks shouldn’t be going out there trying to lose games, but it certainly looks like that sometimes.

Regardless of if they are trying to do it or not, the Knicks have lost a ton of games and things do not look to be changing much any time soon. With an impending Anthony shut down coming, the Knicks could be looking at a lot more losses in the second half of the season, which may not be the worst thing for them.

As a fan it is hard to root for a team to lose, but the more losses the Knicks have the better chance at a top pick they will have. It would be hard to imagine the Knicks losing more than the 76ers over the course of the season as long as Anthony plays, but they have as good a chance as anyone currently at getting the top pick. Will the trend of losing continue, or will they win enough games to knock them out of the top three?
