How the Knicks rank compared to the NBA’s playoff teams and why it matters

The story of the Knicks 2017-18 season is over. We know they finished with a 29-53 record and we know they missed the playoffs in the Eastern Conference by 14 games. But those numbers alone, without context, don’t mean as much as you’d think. Their record is a definite indication of how poor the Knicks were this past season but it’s not enough to tell the story.
