The New York Knicks have put a stop to a series of advertisements that formerly appeared at bus stops and various places around New York City. Apparently the team realized that running an ad campaign that is loaded with insults is not the best idea.
Here are some examples of what the ads said, via Pro Basketball Talk:
It’s Friday night. You can either go out and attempt to pick up sixes and sevens or stay home and watch Kidd dish out dimes.”‘
“It’s Friday night. You can either watch East Village poets do battle or see real artists slam.”
“It’s Friday night. You can either see a Broadway harness malfunctioning or you can watch real men fly.”
The first one can either be interpreted as an insult to the women in New York or a shot at whoever’s reading the ad, saying that person could only land a six or a seven anyway. Personally, I think it’s pretty funny. I also find the second one humorous since I would obviously rather go to a basketball game than a poetry slam, but that’s a matter

The New York Knicks are off to a great start, beginning 3-0 with double digit wins in all three games.
They are one of three teams left undefeated in the league and have been shutting down opponents on the defensive end and they have been doing so without Iman Shumpert, who was their best perimeter defender last season. Shumpert is currently rehabbing from knee surgery.
When the New York Knicks signed 38-year-old Rasheed Wallace this offseason, it didn’t appear that he would have much of an impact on the team. After all, Wallace had been retired for the last two seasons, and adding another aging big man to a roster full of elder citizens was not expected to help New York better itself.
However, the Knicks have started the season 3-0, and Wallace...
