NY Times Takes Pity on Knicks Beat Writer

The Knicks are awful. At 5-32, they are the worst team in the NBA. The Knicks are like a dumpster fire — simply a collection of combusting garbage. With that in mind, The New York Times has taken pity on its Knicks beat writer, Scott Cacciola.

Now that the Knicks have traded away JR Smith (a very good thing!) and Iman Shumpert [pictured, far left], the Times is allowing Cacciola to cover another — well, we should say, an actual basketball team.

“We feel it’s only merciful to give our Knicks beat writer, Scott Cacciola, a break from such woeful basketball,” explained the Times. “He deserves to see the game played at a higher level. For the next month or so, we would like to point him to some good, quality basketball, wherever it might exist. Any suggestions?”

You can leave your ideas in the comment section of the article. But please, don’t say the Nets. That’s just cruel.
