Checking in on those Knicks fans that booed Kevin Knox

Remember those New York Knicks fans that booed Kevin Knox on Draft night? Following Knox’s dominating performances in the NBA Summer League this past weekend, I thought it might be fun to check in on them to see how they’re coping with what they claimed was the worst draft pick in Knicks history.

After a few hours of scrolling through timelines, let me tell you, friends, Knicks Twitter is a dark and angry place. I thought our social media was bad after a Kentucky loss, but we’ve got nothing on those fans up north and their arsenal of F-bombs.

In case you need a refresher, here’s what Knox heard in the Barclays Center on draft night:

Another angle, showing Knicks fans chanting “Michael Porter” minutes before the pick:

Through two games in the Summer League, Knox is fifth in scoring with 20.5 points per game and has taken to turning the rim into his personal chin up bar:

As you might imagine, Knox’s performances have changed some fans’ tune:


I should note that most Knicks fans — the normal ones, at least — praised the pick and are rightly mocking the small segment of fans that booed Knox. In fact, this compilation by a Knicks fan account sums it all up perfectly:

    Had a friend at UK; he was from N.J. , and a big Knick fan. We were watching their game one Sunday, and he was trying to convince me that Knick fans were the most intelligent fans in the country.
    The camera then went to the crowd, and there were 3 N.Y. Fans, their thumbs in their ears and sticking their tongues out at the camera. I said, “wow, Jersey, the local Mensa chapter is at the game.
