The Knicks are a joke right now. No, really. They are. Just go search "Knicks" on Twitter and you will see joke after joke after joke after joke after joke after joke after…you get the point. People are LOLing all over the social media site right now at the Knicks' expense.
There are also quite a few people who are pissed off at the Knicks at the moment. Specifically, they're mad that the Knicks failed to call a timeout at the end of their game against the Wizards last night (they had three remaining) and cost themselves the chance to set up a game-winning shot.
Some people are mad at Knicks coach Mike Woodson for not taking a TO:
So the knicks had 3 timeouts left with 6.9secs to go. Why didn't woodson call a timeout? Smh— I Am The King 23 (@FearNoEvil_2308) December 17, 2013
I love Woodson but you gotta blame him for that L last night. Had a foul to give and a timeout, didn't tell this team at all smh #Knicks— SHARK B.I.T.E! (@CjonCLOUDS) December 17, 2013
Others are mad at Knicks players like Carmelo Anthony:
Espn is drilling knicks coach Woodson for not calling a timeout . What about the player? Melo could have called a timeout he had the ball!— frankievalentino (@MuZiK4SpOrTs2) December 17, 2013
melo must be insane taking that damn acrobatic shot while knicks still got one timeout left w/ 6.5 sec left remaining— Martinus Benito (@Benitotinus) December 17, 2013
And everyone else has—you guessed it—jokes about the timeout situation:
BREAKING : NYC City Council meeting now to discuss Knicks being asked to vacate NYC until timeout is used.— GERRY V (@gvtalk) December 17, 2013
Sigh. Sorry, Knicks fans. But it's going to be a long season. If only this were a viable option:
Yo, just SIM the rest of the Knicks season please.— Rich MaZe Lopez (@MaZe1eR) December 17, 2013
LOL. Sorry, Knicks fans, but we just couldn't help ourselves. Some of these jokes are just too good to pass up.
