New York Knicks protest draws just over 40 people


The New York Knicks were (and still, for the most part are) in the dumps this season and things won’t get better until the offseason sees the roster get retooled by a Zen Master. As iffy as the Knicks are now, they were even less watchable a few weeks ago and it was at that point most fans had seen enough.

A protest rally was crowdsourced through social media and was meant to be the fans revolting against James Dolan and the crappy way he runs his basketball team.

That protest was the morning and the turnout was about as impressive as the way the Knicks have played this season. About 40 people showed up to the protest that has come on the heels of the Knicks actually doing something about their losing ways and hiring Phil Jackson to run the team.

While the protest was a good idea a few weeks ago, the lame turnout is just proof of how quickly even the Knicks can make it look like things are turning around. We may want to raincheck the protest from today, as it may be needed at a later date, but the timing of the protest against what has been happening with the team is so Knicks it’s hard to fathom.
