On The Gram: The Internet Reacts To Charles Oakley Being Ejected From Knicks Game For Fighting In The Stands

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The New York Knicks are not a good professional basketball team right now, sorry Knick fans.

leoshrug

Nothing seems to be going right with the Knicks, they are losing games at an alarming rate, their star player Carmelo Anthony is the subject of constant trade rumors, their owner James Dolan and team president Phil Jackson stink and now their treatment of past Knicks legends has been put on full display. It’s no secret that James Dolan is no fan of Oakley because like many Knicks fans Charles is very critical of Dolan and the current state of the Knicks. Dolan’s response to Oakley’s criticism was banishment and no free tickets which is absolutely absurd given what Oakley meant to that franchise.

Last night, Oakley purchased his own tickets to the (which is crazy) he said was question why was he here when the Knicks found out he was seated behind James Dolan.

Security then tried to remove the former Knicks enforcer and as you can see from the video above it was no easy task. Oakley didn’t go quietly and made sure his imposing presence was still felt and was subsequently arrested. The Knicks quickly followed the incident up with a very tacky press release:

Oakley was released this morning and spoke on the incident last night during an interview at a local bar.

Fans, former players/coaches and even the King himself Lebron James sided with the Oak man.

Mood!! #Legend

A post shared by LeBron James (@kingjames) on

Both parties took a L that night but the Knicks will be feeling this one more than Oakley honestly. You just don’t treat former players who gave your organization their blood and sweat every time they stepped on the court like that. Now as you can imagine the internet doesn’t miss a moment to make light of a situation. Of course they made memes, and of course we got them all here for you. Hit the gallery to check them out:

Denim Brand Fourth of November Celebrates New York Knicks 70th Anniversary with a Limited Collaboration

unnamed-1

Led by visionary Kareem “Biggs” Burke, Brooklyn-based denim brand Fourth of November and the New York Knicks have teamed up to design a 70th Anniversary commemorative varsity jacket and snapback cap. The limited edition collection will launch Monday, January 16 with only 70 pieces and will be sold exclusively at the Madison Square Garden Team Store.

The classic varsity jacket and snapback have undergone a stylish transformation evoking a sense of immense nostalgia. Drawing inspiration from this historic basketball team, the collaboration pays homage with an evocative mix of the team colors: blue, white, and orange. The varsity jacket and snapback are adorned with the Knicks 70th year anniversary and Fourth of November logos. Combining well-crafted textures and fabrics, the jacket features a Melton wool body, 3 x 1 yarn dyed stripe rib, and lamb skin leather sleeves. Incorporating elements from both brands, the sleeves are embroidered with chenille patches representing Fourth of November and the Knicks 1970 and 1973 NBA Championship wins.

Kareem, founder of the brand says:

“As a real New Yorker it’s an absolute honor to collaborate with Knicks. I love this city and everything it stands for. The importance of being authentic and credible at a cultural level is the reason why I started Fourth of November, a brand that combines lifestyle and heritage.”

This timeless jacket and snapback are not only quintessential for New York Knicks fans, but will captivate New Yorkers and fashion enthusiasts alike. These covetable pieces will retail for $350.00 and $46.00 respectively.

Fourth of November

Fourth of November, established in Brooklyn, NY, is best known for its handspun denim pieces.

The marriage of art, love and design, the brand strives to produce garments that embody the love for jean-making as well as traditional American fashion. With each and every Fourth of November denim jean it is first hand washed then sent for duplication. Fourth of November derived from the concept of using original Italian indigo dyed yarns to create cloth, Japanese hand washes, and American workman’s heritage.  By combining it all together it produces one blue jean with the synergy of all the original cultures.

On The Gram: The Atlanta Hawks Got Swept By The Cavaliers The Internet Blessed Them With Memes

FullSizeRender-12

LeBron James has done it again! In what is shaping into one the greatest sports stories ever he returns home, and leads the Cavaliers back to the finals.

This is  LeBron’s 5th consecutive trip to the NBA Finals, his second as a Cleveland Cavalier and that is no small accomplishment. Him and his Cavalier teammates made light work of the no.1 seed  Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals blowing them out in the final game 118 to 88.

Adding insult to injury not only did the Hawk’s get run out of the gym, but they got swept.

 

To make matters even worse , our good friends over at Instagram had to shine light on the fact that former Knicks, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith made it to the NBA Finals after leaving NYC for greener pastures to go to the Cavaliers. The memes instantly popped up as the time wound down on the Hawks impressive season.

Social media didn’t hold no punches when it came to calling out the Atlanta Hawks. What’s even more hilarious is the fact the Knicks, who were nowhere near the playoffs are feeling the heat tonight as well. Let us just say we hope Carmelo Anthony stays off instagram and twitter for a while. Peep the hilarious memes in the gallery below.

The Fly Discussion: Carmello Anthony Leads Knicks to Victory on his debut Night…

Carmello Anthony had 27 points and 10 rebounds, hitting shots from down court in front of a crowd that cheered his every move as New York beat the Milwaukee Bucks 114-108 on Last Night during his debut for the New York Knicks.

I ordered my #7 Jersey today.

“This was ordinary for him, and that’s the highest compliment of what he does. You drop him in any place, any playground, any place in the world and he’ll put up 27 points and 10 rebounds,” Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said. “That’s what he does for a living.”

I’m most excited to see his wife, Fly Girl  LaLa Vazquez sitting Courtside at most of the games. We’ve always been fans of her and are glad she now calls New York Home.
