Draymond Green says 1 NBA team deserves a break to win the Finals

The New York Knicks were eliminated in the Eastern Conference semifinals in seven games by the Indiana Pacers, a disappointing finish for a team full of championship aspirations after a strong 2023-24 NBA season.

New York had all the ingredients to be a legitimate title contender, but simply didn’t have the body to compete after losing several key players to injuries.

Players like OG Anunoby, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Mitchell Robinson were forced to miss postseason games, costing the Knicks a chance to make it to the NBA Finals.

Star guard Jalen Brunson also wasn’t 100% as he dealt with a foot injury that limited him on the court.

The New York fans were amazing at their games, as they made Madison Square Garden dance for every home game of the playoffs.

Because of their prominence and legacy in the NBA, Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green said the Knicks deserve a break and should win a title via The Big Podcast.

“The Knicks deserve a break,” Green said. “It’s been a long time coming. The New York Knicks win a playoff series and their fans go crazy.”

Green argues that small-market teams like the Minnesota Timberwolves, Oklahoma City Thunder and Pacers aren’t popular enough to deserve much attention when it comes to winning an NBA title.

While it’s a harsh comment to make, Green is right that the league would certainly prefer to see a team like New York win it all.
