The New Orleans Pelicans, not the New York Knicks will pick first in the 2019 NBA draft and have the opportunity to select Zion Williamson.
The Knicks had a 14 percent chance of landing the No. 1 pick, not the greatest odds, but the Knicks Organization and fans all felt it was going to happen.
Like it was meant to be.
The New York Daily News had some fun with the failure, and posted this on their back cover.
