Knicks fans: Why do you subject yourself to such pain time and time again?
The latest disappointment the New York franchise has bestowed upon their embarrassingly loyal fans comes in the form of a statement that came a day late and a dollar short.
As protests continue across the country–and all over the world–following the murder of George Floyd, all types of organizations have spoken out against racial injustice and police brutality. As teams across the NBA came out in support of their players and the communities they come from, it became clear early on that the Knicks would be one of the only teams to not jump on that bandwagon.
Now, over a week later, the Knicks have issued a statement on everything going on in our country right now…but, like, barely.
“Every one of us has a role to play in creating a just and equal society, where there is no racism, bigotry, violence or hate,” the message reads. “We stand for all who act for positive change.” And that’s it.
If there’s one thing Knicks fans know how to do well, it’s make fun of the organization. Here’s what people had to say following this lackluster statement from the team.
