    Max is on drugs, nobody expected the Knicks to be anywhere, Randle’s value was dirt low. He brings the Suns up, but the Suns have Booker and added CP3 they almost made the playoffs last season too. Too different things. The fact they locked a playoff berth without play in tournament is an absolute triumph

    The suns were only a game out of the play offs, the suns added CP3, and they were expected to win (not this much but still) the Knicks weren’t projected to be anywhere near playoffs unlike the suns so the expectations are different doesn’t change now that were almost done wit the season let Knicks enjoy something for once, we all know max is just saying this so they can clown the Knicks when they lose in the playoffs!

    If the team wasn’t projected to make it to the playoffs and all of sudden they actually do than it’s not a failure if they lose in the playoffs. It’s actually a success but for NEXT season they will have the pressure to make it and win a series or two in the playoffs.

    If you want to be technical you could say any team that doesn't win the title that year failed that season. However, being more realistic and taking things into consideration i.e. they're the KNICKS, the mere fact that they are above .500 makes this season a home run success.

    Just making the playoffs is already a success for this team. This team ain’t even contenders so them losing in the 1st round means nothing. 2013 knicks was the last knicks team that looked like contenders so far.

    Look the Knicks are playing well. But they haven’t won a chip since 1973. And then you got moments like 8 points in 9 seconds by Miller, and MJ gave them 55 points. New York is the Mecca of basketball and so championships are expected. Don’t let the Yankees, Giants, Mets and Nets have all the parades...

    Phx was expected to make the playoffs in a good seeding. Soon as they got cp3 after coming off his bounceback season in okc where he made that team good with a worst roster. Nobody in they right mind thought the Knicks would be beating they favorite teams or in the top in def and competing in close games with bucks clippers Sixers nets etc.
