Longtime readers know that I am a Knicks fan. Or as the Signal group I have with a couple of my kids is called, a “Frustrated Knicks Fan.”
Last night we lost at home in double overtime to the Bulls. That is the third time this season we have lost to the Bulls. Twenty percent of the Bulls wins this year have been against the Knicks.
Last night’s loss was a microcosm of the season and this team for me.
We played hard, we made a couple big buckets to take the game to OT and double OT.
But in the end, a boneheaded play by the player who was keeping us in the game lost it for us.
Fandom is such an interesting emotion.
It is self-torture and yet we enjoy it.
