Walt Clyde Frazier Sees Agony And Devastation In The Faces Of Young Knicks Fans At MSG
It'd be an understatement to say that the last three weeks have been a tough stretch for the New York Knicks, who went from a semi-exciting 16-13 team to an 18-24 port-o-potty fire that's giving a combined $50 million this season to two guys who clearly hate their jobs. Hell, one of them literally became a missing person over this 13-game span because coming to work is THAT awful, so it probably won't come as a surprise that shit continued to roll downhill Monday, as they suffered yet another soul-crushing loss...on a day formally designated as the most uplifting 24-hours of the entire year.
After opening the fourth-quarter with an uncharacteristic 10-point run against a deconstructed Atlanta Hawks roster, the Knicks pried open the hearts of their fans and coaxed them into believing that this team might be on the verge of its third win since December 22. Lo and behold, the NBA's Bad News Bears blew a five-point lead with three minutes to go, capped off by both Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony -- who are paid more money to play basketball this year than the entire 2016 GDP of Belize -- missing game-winners from close range on the final possession.
It was about as painful a loss as any of the 11 losses this perpetual misery machine has cranked out since Christmas. The Knicks are a prescription drug that treats happiness. They are basketball prozac. They are, as Walt Clyde Frazier puts it, filling innocent young children with agony and devastation.
