Social media. It is the greatest invention of our generation or maybe one day it will lead us to a nuclear holocaust in the hands of our president. Who knows?
All I know is that the Knicks are not good at that. Well, except for Luke Kornet. He is indispensable. But to all others? Delete your account.
Take, for example, Allonzo Trier, who promised to slip into the DM of a fan last night after the fan thanked him for not covering Eric Gordon in what ended up being the triple that sealed the defeat of the Knicks. the night, getting closer and closer to Zion Williamson:
Then, look. I understand that Trier is only 23 years old. At that age, some guys still have a little head, maybe especially Trier with the perpetual chip "not recruited" that he wears on his shoulder. And that's great and everything. I like that fire. But Zo. Zo. ZO You alone to have Learn how to do something like that in New Freakin 'York is going to get you in trouble.
So now there is drama in the locker room. A real shit from Friday Night Lights. But hey, at least Trier learned his lesson, apparently (on ESPN):
"Feeling frustrated by the game, then letting social networks take advantage of you and giving someone a response that was not relevant to the situation," Trier told reporters after the Knicks practice on Thursday. "So my apologies for doing that." Obviously, I did not think he would take a picture of [the message] and publish it, but it got its little influence or whatever … its 15 seconds of fame.
"That's why you do not send things like that."
"I learned your lesson." Certainly, more than I can say for our next participant:
If you are having a déjà vu at this time, it is because Kanter has already done this whole stretch of "tweet a facepalm emoji" this season. Also, as you've probably heard, basically asked for an exchange last night.
Oh, but do not worry! He loves you here! He just wants, uh … play! And, uh … win! Or something. You just need to know that he does not want to be a distraction, and that's why he keeps talking about himself:
Of course, all this was because Fizdale supposedly told Kanter that it would start yesterday, only for Lance Thomas to start in his place (which, all right, maybe it's a low blow):
David Fizdale said that when he told Kanter that he was going to start yesterday morning, at that time there was nothing written in stone. And then, after he made the change, "Keith Smart is my messenger when I have to make a change." #Knicks

Kanter, an eight-year-old veterinarian who has done little or nothing to develop as a player in the NBA, wants to know why he is treated like a veterinarian and not the 19 to 23-year-old on the list:
Well, when Lance and Courtney were asked about how to handle this, Enes said, "Yeah, look at those guys, I mean, Courtney or Lance, they're 33, 34 years old, whatever the year, I'm 26 years old. It's not like I'm old, you know what I mean, they treat me like I'm old. "

At least David Fizdale has a good sense of humor about it:
The best time today was David Fizdale's answer if he was worried that Kanter's situation would become a distraction:
"What are we going to do? Losing more games?
– Chris Iseman (@ChrisIseman) January 25, 2019
Is David Fizdale worried that Enes Kanter's situation will become a problem for the 10-36 Knicks?
"What are we going to do, lose some more games?" Fizdale said, laughing. "You should not make it clear, sometimes you have to laugh."

So, thanks to social media, I was able to read all this nonsense today, including the crap from the Los Celtics fans site in Boston:
In the last 24 hours:
– Allonzo Trier and Tim Hardaway Jr. exchanged some expletives in the first quarter
– Trier DM & # 39; d a fan, defending himself, and then apologized for it
– Enes Kanter said he wants to leave if the Knicks are not going to play him. pic.twitter.com/xn9fywZ38J

All this instead of reading. perhaps one or two positive pieces for once that could have highlighted the fun game of all the Knicks of 24 and under last night.
Whatever is. Just get Kanter and the veterinarians out of here and let me see my children.
