The New York Knicks are the Prime Example of a Clown Franchise


Last night the New Yorks Knicks blew a 15-point lead to the Chris Paul-less Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers would go on to win 119-115. To go along with the Knicks loss at home, fan favorite Charles Oakley was arrested after being told to exit the premises.

The scene was caught on video, and the game had to be stopped so that the officials can get a grip on what was going on. We probably will never know the real reason why Oakley was arrested because every media outlet is promoting their agenda.

My reason for saying that is because I am noticing that a lot of the networks are either taking Charles Oakley side or Knicks owner James Dolan. In regards to the Charles Oakley incident, you would have to take it for what it’s worth because mainstream media will not give you an accurate answer on what happened last night at the Garden.

Aside from what happened the last night, Knicks President Phil Jackson took a shot at star player Carmelo Anthony a few days ago when he took cosigned with an article written by Bleacher Reports Kevin Ding. Here is the tweet that Jackson posted about Ding’s article on Carmelo Anthony.

“Bleacher’s Ding almost rings the bell, but I learned you don’t change the spot on a leopard with Michael Graham in my CBA daze.”

If you are the president of a professional basketball franchise, then why in the world are you taking shots at the franchise player on social media?

Those are things that the players would do not the executives in the front office. Jackson will not face any repercussions for his remarks towards Melo because of his resume and the power that he has over the Knicks organization. The New York Knicks are the impideme of a clown franchise. They are no better than their sister team, the New York Jets.

The Knicks play in the number one market in the NBA, they have unlimited resources at their disposal and fail to contend for a title on a yearly basis like the small market Cleveland Cavaliers. Phil Jackson could be fired as team president, however; owner James Dolan cannot be fired because he owns the team. Let that resonate for minute Knick fans.
