NEW YORK (WFAN) — What did you think he was going to do, ignore it?
WFAN’s Mike Francesa lit into the Knicks something fierce on Wednesday, following their historic meltdown against the woeful Lakers in Los Angeles the night before.
It wasn’t so much the 126-97 final score that set Francesa off, as it was the utter embarrassment the Knicks were during the second and third quarters, when playing defense was, at best, just a theory.
“I have not had great expectations for the Knicks, but last night, coming off that terrible loss to Cleveland and with a chance to still make the playoffs, I decided to watch the Knicks play L.A., or attempt to play L.A.,” Francesa said to open his show. “And I wound up having to sit threw three quarters, because what we got to see, after a reasonable Knicks first quarter, was the worst two quarters of basketball, maybe in Knicks history, and without question the worst quarter of basketball in Knicks history.”
