Bitcoin Price Inching Back Up Towards $10K

After dropping to just over $9100 just a few days ago, the price of Bitcoin appears to be heading back in the right direction.

Fansided recently offered realistic expectations for the New York Knicks in 2019-20, keeping in mind they have the 4th longest odds to win the NBA Championship in 2020.

In the end, the Knicks got a sum total of ZERO top free agents.

The Knicks did, however, get the third overall pick which gave them Zion's Duke teammate and best friend, RJ Barrett.
