The 2015 NBA Draft took place Thursday at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center (June 25) and no other team was looking for a little love and affection more than the New York Knicks, but unfortunately, their despair will continue, or at least that’s how their fans see it.
Instead of locking in the highly sought after D’Angelo Russell or Jahlil Okafor, The Knicks went with Kristaps Porzingis amid what was reported as deafening boos. The 7-footer is already being compared to Dirk Nowitzki, which is a good thing, but fans aren’t so hopeful.
Check out some of their reactions.
The Knicks said screw America we going across the pond to draft some garbage this year.

The Knicks are really trying to be the first team to go 0-82
The Knicks have horrible luck with foreign players.
