          Whenever I yell I come darn close to lose my voice, I wish i had the money to pay Stephen A. Smith to yell at people for me. whenever he gets mad it's hilarious. He is why I watch First Take.

                    knicks fans: we tanked well and we have a great shot at getting zion and the first overall pick!

                    *the knicks have won third overall in the lottery*

                    knicks fans: at least we got free agency! we can get KD AND irving still available!

                    *they get neither in free agency and got rudy gay, Darren collison, and RJ barrett instead*

                    knicks fans: WELP! TIME TO GO ROOT FOR BROOKLYN!

                                    "DAMMIT, WE DIDN'T HAVE HAROLD MINER!" I still laugh at that quote. (Pardon me if I got the player's name wrong. Let me know down below the correct spelling)

                                      It's a damn shame the Knicks are in the shape they are no one wants to play there, if I was RJ Barrett I would play a couple years and get the hell out of there. The owner and front office has ruined that place. I'm shocked that the fans are not burning there Knicks stuff after this disaster of a free agents signing.

                                              Knicks fans stand up and say it we are still suffering, after the season ended. Also as a bonus before the next season starts we still gonna be suffering. RJ Barrett better show up next season and take over NY while we in this state of crisis.

                                                    "There's free agency!". Perhaps the NYK's front office forgot to mark July 1 on their calendar.
