Outside of the Brooklyn Nets (who have been ravaged by injuries), no team in the NBA is playing worse basketball than that of the New York Knicks. Not only is their nine game losing streak the current longest in the league, but turmoil between players seems to be at an all-time time.
In recent days we’ve had Carmelo Anthony suggest players aren’t playing defense, that the team has a monkey which has morphed into a gorilla on their back and that he’s simply ‘not having fun’. The constant bickering forced the front office to mandate that players be more positive and head coach Mike Woodson informed the team to stop airing out teammates in the media.
Those are rules swingman J.R. Smith followed during a recent Twitter post as he took no shots at fellow players nor the front office/coaching staff, like he was told. But what he did do was take a shot at fans, suggesting they not ‘hit him up’ once the Knicks start winning again:
I won’t tell you what #FOH stands for, but I will tell you the first word rhymes with ‘duck’.
