Stephen A: "I think you're gonna be hearing Jason Kidd's name come up ... I'm being told that that's somebody that Dolan likes." pic.twitter.com/CbINCu9Reg— Dime (@DimeUPROXX) December 7, 2019
I’m sorry you had to see that tweet, Knicks fans. Stephen A. isn’t the most reliable source, but he’s saying James Dolan likes Jason Kidd and he might be a candidate to take over as head coach? As if things couldn’t get any worse ...
Usually I’d save the best for last, but Desus really hits the nail on the head with what it’s like being a Knicks fan right now.

Even NFL personalities like Rich Eisen and Chad Ochocinco Johnson got in on the Knicks’ misery.
That’s so unfair that David Fizdale gets fired for something that’s totally out of his control, does James Dolan make these decisions❓— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) December 6, 2019

Even Fran took a break from watching highlights of the third best player on a high school team from Serbia to personify the feeling Fizdale must have right now.
firing david fizdale for not making the knicks into champions is like giving a mechanic a box of toothpicks and hot dogs and then getting mad at him that he couldn't you a race car out of it— Shea Serrano (@SheaSerrano) December 6, 2019
