It’s hard to believe that Knicks fans are shocked about everything the team didn’t do in this year’s free agency. For a team that deserves no optimism, and almost never receives it (outside of some Harvard kid being good for 10 days),
Knicks fans always garner this bizarre sense of hope every offseason.
In reality, it’s the media’s fault. New York being New York lends itself the benefit of relevancy no matter what. ESPN has to talk about New York because it’s, well, New York. And New Yorker’s, being New Yorker’s, love talking about New York. And so begins the frenzy.
I don’t think they’re gonna learn. The city is filled with Einsteins. Not the “genius” type of Einstein. More like the “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the different” results type of Einstein (look it up).
Personally, I think this guy…
for whatever reason, becomes the bastion of New York guarantees and people believe him. But why? He’s wrong about everything.
Guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
So stop listening to him and getting your hopes up. Because no matter how many sources claim the Knicks are in the running for anyone worth the money, everyone tends to forget one very important thing.
This thing’s still here.
Inevitably, once everything falls apart, we crash back to reality, and remember why everything bad happens and we’re left staring hopelessly at the situation wondering, “how is he still here?” Like literally here on this Earth.
I know, I know. It’s wrong. But the mind goes to some dark places after 20 years of misery. It’s not farfetched to say that a sizable population of Knicks fans have said, “I don’t want him to be murdered…. but…” It’s fucked, I know, but so is watching the Knicks.
So it begs the question: What hurt a New York team more? James Dolan or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
On the one hand, LGD has a 100% mortality rate, strips its victims of everything, devastates those that want to help but can do nothing, and took away one of the city’s greatest sports icons.
On the other hand, signing with the Knicks is basically career suicide, Dolan strips his victims of all their pride,
fan’s have been sitting around hopelessly devastated for 20 years,
and Dolan has taken away one of the city’s greatest icons.
There’s a lot to consider, and unfortunately I can’t decide for you. I’ve gone too far at this point. You be the judge.
