Ah, the poor New York Knicks. Even their own league is making fun of them.

Apparently somebody seemed to log in on the incorrect account and tweeted from the NBA’s Twitter to Grantland’s Zach Lowe, suggesting that the Knicks current point guard situation is a mess.

Lowe was explaining the Knicks backcourt scenario and hinted that while Raymond Felton has been nothing short of awful, Darren Collison isn’t exactly the best upgrade.

So where does the talk of Collison come from? Earlier in the day there were rumors suggesting the Knicks were working on a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers in which they’d acquire the point guard, though we’ve heard little else on the progress of such a deal (bad or good) in the hours since.

Regardless, that was a pretty hilarious slip up by the social media account manager for NBA.com.

Though, it’s hard to disagree – poor as Felton has been, Collison isn’t doing much better.
