    NYC Subway Ads Taunt Knicks Fans

    Riders on the shuttle between Times Square and Grand Central Terminal in New York were greeted this week by rather peculiar advertisements about the New York Knicks. One of them, on the outside of the train, features photos of highly paid Knicks players Tim Hardaway Jr. and Joakim Noah with “hopeless” written between them.





    The pessimism continued on the inside of the train, as the seats were adorned with messages such as:

    — “Sit here if you’re hopeless.”

    — “The high point of the last 25 years was the movie Eddie,” a reference to the 1996 Hollywood stinker in which a fan portrayed by Whoopi Goldberg is named the Knicks’ coach.

    — “Nothing will change until Dolan sells the team,” a sentiment about team owner James Dolan that is shared by many of the New Yorkers who would sit in that seat.
    The other side of the train apparently offered a more optimistic view of the franchise centered on Kristaps Porzingis:

    Report: Dolan 'furious' about Knicks subway ads, orders them taken down

    Well, the fun could only last briefly.

    Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan is "furious" about FOX Sports 1's "pick a side" New York Knicks subway advertisements, according to SNY's Adam Zagoria, and has ordered them taken down, ESPN's Darren Rovell reports.

    They should do trains for basically every NY FRANCHISE. It's that fucking pathetic, sadly.

    Man, I wish I had seen these before they were taken down. Glad Dolan's pissed. It's only a fraction of what Knicks fans have had to endure.
