The Knicks lost to a guy who couldn't get into MSG

Anzejs-Pasecniks

If you need to explain to someone how bad the Knicks are, here's a short story that will paint the picture. The "we will be in the playoffs" New York Knicks got their asses kicked by the "we are in a full tank" Washington Wizards, 121 - 115.

Not just that, but the New York Power Forwards lost to a tanking Washington team that had 8 players missing and was basically playing their G-League team. Troy Brown Jr., Gary Payton II. and Anzejs Pasecniks came off the bench and scored a combined 50 on the Knicks. Pasecniks almost didn't get to play.

"Pasecniks is so obscure, the 7-foot-1 big man was spotted 2 ¹/₂ hours before the game with shopping bags at the players’ entrance, trying to convince security guards to allow him into the arena."
