With the New York Knicks first round pick headed to the Toronto Raptors in a trade that sent Andrea Bargain to New York, and with the Brooklyn Nets pick headed to the Celtics, the two teams really have nothing to play for but pride.

Both teams draft-picks are bound to be toward the top of lottery, which is incredible disappointed for New York and Brooklyn fanbases.

Still, there is a dreadful regular season to finish, which means basketball still to be played on both sides.

The two clubs that combine for 100 losses and just 51 wins meet in tonights April Fools clash, and, what do you know? It also happens to be the birthday of both Robin and Brook Lopez.

That’s no prank.

The twins who claim they refuse to speak to each other during games will clash yet again…and hopefully refrain from hurting a mascot in the process.
