This Week in NBA Trolling: The Nets & Knicks Vendetta Edition
There always seems to be one franchise in every professional sports league that becomes a consistent source of mockery.
While there are certainly a number of laughable organizations in the NBA, the New York Knicks remain without question the standard bearer.
While the funds were available, this plan still required both dudes to exercise their own free will and voluntarily come work for the wretched James Dolan.
Yeah, that may have been a slight miscalculation.
Of course, Durant and Irving chose Brooklyn instead, a fact the Nets apparently feel compelled to share with their crosstown nemesis.

Now obviously, an argument could be made that the Knicks do a more than adequate job of trolling themselves through their daily organizational activities, but it's so much better when other teams get involved in the fun.
Meanwhile, poor Knicks fans are left to flail about helplessly, knowing full well that their favorite team is doomed forever.
How is this a troll? This is a desperate cry to get more fans to show up at their empty busted arena— KC Smoothie (@KayCSmooth) September 17, 2019
No this is not a troll Nets last place in attendance last year and they tired of the home game being Knick home games— stateofthenewyorkknicks (@stateofthenewy1) September 16, 2019
Troll us? They apparently can’t sell them so they’re giving them away.— Joel Friedman (@JoelGlenn) September 16, 2019
Hmmm, they might actually have a point.
