New York Knicks entered into Thursday’s home match against Houston Rockets at an worst 5-33, entangled in a record thirteen game losing run and carrying a roster of limited talent. The squad is wretched enough to ask questions regarding the progress of Derek Fisher and Phil Jackson’s rebuilding attempts as well as the usefulness of playing star player Carmelo Anthony at all over the season. Madison Square Garden might stay as the Mecca, but current games to its hallowed grounds are not very much happy experiences as scopes for crises of faith.
It seems that few of the fans have selected to show their displeasure with the team with a classic method. During stoppage time at 9:32 mark of 3rd quarter, with the Knicks’ score down 66-47 to Houston Rockets, the TV cameras found a quintet of people at the gallery wearing paper bags over their heads. The 2014-2015 season, NY Knicks have handed everyone something to hate.
Traditionally, the paper bag has been linked with few of the most frustrating teams in the history of sports, including the bloated Knicks made by Isiah Thomas in the middle of 00s. This loop of the franchise is quite different in that several of their players are just as anonymous as the rooters who select to save their faces.
