Knicks Fans Are Having A Nervous Breakdown On Twitter Over Giving Tim Hardaway Jr. A Wild Contract


The Knicks drafted Michigan’s Tim Hardaway Jr. in the 2013 NBA Draft. Two years later, they traded him to Atlanta for two seasons where he averaged 10.5 ppg and under two assists per contest. Welp, fast forward to today and the Knicks realized they made an oopsie and decided to sign the 25-year-old guard back for a staggering four-year, $71 million offer sheet. The Hawks have 48 hours to match, but $71 million is likely too high a price to play to retain him.

For a large-market team who has only made it out of the first round of the playoffs one time in 17 years and did its best to alienate its most promising prospect in Kristaps Porzingis, you can imagine how Knicks fans received the news of making another head-scratching decision…

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
