Computer scoffs at Knicks' 37-win season

Neilson Barnard

A computer model predicted the Knicks would win 37 games this season, which pissed the team off at the time. Guess how many wins the Knicks had this season?

Back in the NBA preseason, ESPN's SCHOENE computer model made waves by predicting the New York Knicks, fresh off a 54-28 season, would go 37-45 in 2014. That led to a memorable story in the New York Post that included this section.

Carmelo Anthony wants to know if the computer is broken.

Anthony reacted with surprise Wednesday when informed of a projection for the Knicks to go 37-45 this season, based on an ESPN system called SCHOENE. That would be a steep dropoff from last season's 54-28 record, which was good enough for the second seed in the Eastern Conference.

"Sometimes there's glitches in the computer,'' Anthony said. "That's all I can say.''

Wednesday, the Knicks finished their season by rallying to defeat the Toronto Raptors at home. Their final record?
