What if told you I stubbed my toe, lost a thousand dollars at the dog track, and also had an incurable stomach rash? Even if all those things were true, I would STILL be having a better day than the New York Knicks.
This is what they managed in the last 24 hours:
#1) JR. Smith tries to pull off the headband of Vince Carter from the Dallas Mavericks. That would seem playful… if Smith hadn't been fined 50 thousand dollars for untying two opponents shoelaces!!!!
#2) In the closing seconds of the game, it was all tied until the Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitski sinks an impossible shot with no time left. Insane. Heartbreaking.
#3) After the game, early this morning, Knicks guard Raymond Felton was arrested on 3 felony counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
Ladies and Gentlemen, your New York Knicks! Not just losing, but cheating. Not just cheating, but lawbreaking – allegedly. Hey but at least they don't stink. Oh wait, THEY DO. They're 15 games under 500! It's enough to make you feel ok about your stomach rash.
Repeat after me, no matter how bad it seems for you, you are having a better day than the New York Knicks!
