As if the New York Knicks' season couldn't have become more bizarre, a photo has surfaced of the team's president, Phil Jackson, riding a NYC public bus.
On sight, people hit the image with an onslaught of hilarious memes and tweets. Add this to the Knicks' 23-34 record, Jackson's constant criticism of the team's superstar Carmelo Anthony, and the franchise's owner James Dolan's treatment of Charles Oakley at Madison Square Garden last week, and this season has been another wash for the orange and blue.
Well, at least Phil could think about the organization's next move on that bus ride.
Here is the notorious photo and the hilarity that ensued.
Just ... why?
Damn! Phil got bodied with this comment.
Life is hitting Phil Jackson quick these days, isn't it? Figure it out, Phil. Figure it out.
Yeah, that's right ... Kevin Love's injury has Melo in the All-Star Game once again, despite the Knicks' president's criticism of him this season.
Loosen up, Phil.
As slow of a crawl as NYC transportation could be sometimes, Phil has plenty of time to figure things out. Watch out for those potholes that the Knicks' season has already succumbed to, though.
Imagine if he started spewing Zen wisdom on the bus. Would New Yorkers care?
Good grief. Put the yellow crime-scene tape up. Nothing else to see here.
