The best early-season social media victory of the NBA season goes to the Orlando Magic for absolutely owning New York Knicks fans.
Yes, the Knicks were pretty good last season. Their fans celebrated their one playoff victory over Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks like the New York Jets won the Super Bowl. It is inferred that this fan base wants a winner in the worst way possible. But when a rebuilding team like the Magic comes into MSG and pull out a win, you better believe the Knicks were not done taking some L’s.
Fueled by this exceptionally cringeworthy video, that got the fire started for the Magic social team.
When Knicks devotee Rob Perez questioned if the Magic had the stones to tweet out “Bing Bong” after the final buzzer, that was the epitome of low-hanging fruit.
Full Send. Chef’s Kiss. BING BONG!
Orlando Magic social team Bing Bongs New York Knicks fanbase after big win
While it is only the first week of the 2021-22 NBA season, last year was last year. Outside of last season, the Knicks have been varying levels of dreadful for the better part of two decades. Though nothing is quite like seeing MSG rocking when the Knicks are good, the fanbase needs to eat it a fat slice of humble pie after this tragic embarrassment of getting Bing Bong-ed by the Magic.
Ultimately, this is the type of inherent pettiness that NBA fans all around have to be enjoying.
