New York Knicks fans do not need another reminder that they fanned on another high-profile free agent. They walked through the foul-smelling streets of Manhattan feeling like the middle schooler who has the best toys and snacks in class but still cannot convince anyone to come to his birthday party. I feel kind of sorry for them. Just kidding. Their suffering brings me more joy than the birth of my first son.
The Knicks are currently 1-6.
Meanwhile, right over the bridge, the Brooklyn Nets are less bad, posting a 3-4 record which their eighteen fans are pleased about.
The Nets main attraction is Kyrie Irving, who just dropped 39 points in a win over the Pelicans and matched the longest streak of 20-point games (7) for a player at any point in the Brooklyn era.
As a Celtics fan, the only thing I’ll tell Nets fans is: don’t crown Kyrie king until his seasonal depression kicks in.
Orrrr, you can throw this billboard up directly outside of Madison Square Garden to mock the self-hating Knicks.
Believe me, I’ve been there before.
Annnnd after Kyrie left:
We’ll revisit where we stand in February.
