The New York Knicks had it all, or so they thought. With a huge offseason ahead of them, NYK had the opportunity to earn their first real win in quite some time, and the rights to Zion Williamson in the process.
Nope. The Knicks got the No. 3 overall pick instead, a solid selection in its own right. However, this is no Zion, and NBA twitter reacted accordingly.
All the tears, man. All the tears.

The Knicks are taking Daniel Jones at 3— 12up (@12upSport) May 15, 2019
If it were possible, Dave Gettleman would ruin this draft, too.
Oh, the pain indeed. The Q train won't be any fun tonight.
Knicks: We'll give you the No. 1 pick for Anthony Davis— FanDuel (@FanDuel) May 15, 2019
The Pels are the real winners here, as they should be able to at least get Anthony Davis to the table now.
This went about as bad as possible. But don't take it out on the floor!
The stars were really aligning. It was all unfolding dramatically. It was all there for the Knicks taking. And that creepy Nosferatu lookin ass Adam Silver didn’t have the balls to rig it— KFC (@KFCBarstool) May 15, 2019
The stars never align for the Knicks, folks.

Nope! Not the case at all.
You stupid, stupid man.
That went from 0 to 100 real quick.
Wow, as if you had to rub it in. Sheesh.
