New York Post Columnist Mike Vaccaro said the current New York Knicks have set a new standard for losers.
Wrote Vaccaro: We've had our share of bad teams in New York City. Hell, we had the platinum standard for bad teams here once, the '62 Mets, who elevated losing to an art form, who lost three out of every four games they played. The Jets, who now sit at a relentlessly unremarkable 2-9 after Thursday's brutalization in Dallas. They do not inspire much of anything within the souls of their fans. They're just bad.
Added Vaccaro: The Knicks inspire something else. They inspire anger. They inspire hatred. Knicks fans have long since left their hand-wringing on the table. There is an unmitigated loathing for this team, for the men who run the operation, for several key components of the roster. That's when you know you've really done something around here, when sadness turns to fury. Knicks fans hate these Knicks. HATE them. Period.
