It’s Not Just The Knicks Who Hate Draymond Green; NBA Boycott?! New York Tracker

JUNE 5 BOYCOTT! The way the story goes, notorious Knicks hater Draymond Green, who worked with “Inside The NBA” for a minute there, caused TNT to fail to secure interviews with one team …

Because it was “boycotting” the Golden State Warriors bully.

The reason the Minnesota Timberwolves didn’t ever make it to the stage with Charles and Shaq and the gang?

The reason is Draymond.

Minny big man stars Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns were both criticized heavily by Green. … to the point many thought it was more about Draymond’s personal views than his analysis.

And so Minnesota (during its WCF series vs. winning Dallas) reportedly decided to boycott the “Inside The NBA” desk due to Green being there.

Was that unprofessional? Probably. Does it match Green’s lack of TV professionalism? Definitely.

JUNE 5 OG STEAL If you can’t beat ’em …

Sign ’em?

The Philadelphia 76ers have their eyes on New York Knicks forward OG Anunoby this summer, according to SNY’s Ian Begley.

The Knicks star will surely attract multiple suitors. … so it’s no shock that the 76ers might be on the list.

Anunoby, 26, can become an unrestricted free agent if he declines his player option with the Knicks. He averaged 14.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game this year, but was saddled by injury issues that meant he only played only 50 regular-season games.

New York faces a juggling act here … but surely doesn’t like the idea of OG in a Philly uniform.

JUNE 3 CELTIC LOVE If you love the Knicks, you hate the Celtics.

If you are a computer in Bristol … you love the Celtics.

ESPN Analytics is high on the Celtics for Game 1 of the NBA Finals as its Basketball Power Index is giving the Celtics a 65.7% chance of taking a 1-0 series lead at home over the Dallas Mavericks.

Simple math tells you that means … Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving and Company are seen as having just a 34.3% chance of stealing Game 1.

And from a Knicks perspective? It is hoped that if they put crap into the computer, it spit crap out.
