Knicks fans wear paper bags over their heads during 14th straight loss (video)


Knicks fans were ashamed to show their faces at Madison Garden as New York fell behind the Rockets by 19 points last night (hat tip: Eric Freeman of Ball Don’t Lie).

It only got worse from there. The Knicks lost by 24, their 14th straight loss, extending a franchise record for consecutive losses within a single season.

Thankfully, Phil Jackson wasn’t wearing a bag over his head. Otherwise, we would have been robbed of the great facial expression he flashed in that video.

The Knicks have struggled for a  while now, and fans have had plenty of reasons to wear bags over their heads. I don’t know the last time it happened before last night, but here’s the good news: The last time I recall it happening, the Knicks’ fortunes changed for the better shortly afterward.
