Franchise failure

Howard Beck, New York Times:
The Bulls were slotted ninth and had only a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery. They leapfrogged seven teams, including the Knicks, whose new coach, Mike D’Antoni, turned down the Bulls to come to New York.

In a draft that is considered deep, but with no sure things after Rose and Beasley, the Knicks will get a less great player. Slotted fifth, they slipped to sixth in the lottery.
The Knicks can't even do well in the draft lottery.

I believe Jon Lester, cancer survivor™, came in third in the lottery.
