"Why would I be shocked?" said long-time season ticket holder Anthony Scapaldi."He wouldn't pass to Stoudemire, Hardaway or Lin either."
"I give those teams a lot of credit," said Anthony. "It was really creative for them to do what all the bloggers have been doing for more than 10 years and Photoshop me in their jersey."
The basketball world was shocked Thursday when TNT analyst Steve Kerr spurned the Knicks' offer to be their head coach. Left flatfooted with no other candidates in mind, owner James Dolan hastily announced that Jackson will serve as the team's coach next year via Skype video chat.
"Michael Jordan is unquestionably the greatest basketball player ever, and I taught him a lot to help him grow into a champion," Jackson shared. "But don't you dare think for one minute I had any influence on the way that guy ruins, I mean, runs a basketball team."
"For most of my adult life, this team has been garbage, and I got accustomed to booing and stuff when Isiah was the coach and they would lose," said one fan. "So even when they win now, I boo."
An unfortunate situation for the Knicks occurred early Wednesday morning in New York City as the team's talented shooting guard, J.R. Smith, suffered a torn groin muscle and will the entire 2012-13 NBA season.
