Knicks Match ESPN Computer Season Prediction After Being Salty

Back when everyone had their NBA season prediction posts and projections, ESPNs SCHOENE system predicted the Knicks would go 37-45.

ESPN Computer Accurately Predicted Knicks’ Record, Which Knicks Players Had Scoffed At

The New York Knicks finished a rather fluky 54-27 last season, good enough for the #2 seed in Eastern Conference. And while they weren’t expected to perform quite as well this season (Las Vegas had their over/under pegged at 48.5 wins), nobody could have predicted a precipitous 17-game drop-off — well, except Kevin Pelton’s SCHOENE projection system.
