The 2014-15 New York Knicks, thankfully, play their last game of the season on Wednesday night. In tribute, a Twitter user by the handle of “World_Wide_Wob” has decided to cobble together a series of Knick highlights from this season, set to the tune of “One Shining Moment.”
It is both very sad and very funny. This video is not hi-definition. As no 2014-15 Knick highlight video should be:

As you know, the Knicks entered the 2014 offseason with plenty of questions pulling on their cuff, and they started the season with playoff aspirations despite Michael Jordan’s death knell of an endorsement. Within hours of the team’s opening night loss to the Chicago Bulls, a team that at one point had the Knicks down by 33 points, team president Phil Jackson described the team with a weird amalgamation of both New York and Los Angeles-ese.
Later in the season, with his (mostly) inherited team falling apart, Jackson outright admitted to initial failure. Carmelo Anthony was lost for the season following his dutiful All-Star Game appointment. Alexey Shved took a shot (?) that nobody quite understood. Phil Jackson defended his offense against the barbs of the NBA’s lead office. Jackson didn’t seem to mind going on the record, with that $60 million contract in place, in tampering with college underclassmen. The Knicks gave the basketball gods heartburn, people.
And they may not even finish with the worst record in the NBA. Bloody hell.
