The NBA season is less than 24 hours away now. The New York Knicks are apparently not happy with their final roster. They traded Travis Outlaw to the Philadelphia 76ers for Arnett Moultrie on Monday, in which they immediately waived him.
The Knicks felt the need to add one more player after they waived Moultrie. No, it’s not Travis Wear. It’s Taylor Swift.
Okay, obviously not for real. But, honestly, she’s probably taller than Shane Larkin, one of their backup guards..
T-Swift, as her fans call her (Kevin Durant?), is seen at Knicks practice sporting an old Mark Jackson jersey between Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire. Jackson posted this photo to his Instagram Monday.
The former Golden State Warriors head coach was honored to have Swift pick his jersey to wear: “At Knicks practice Taylor Swift could have picked any jersey! She’s got good taste! Lol. I’m Honored!!!!”.
To basketball fans, this is hilariously amusing. To Taylor Swift fans, who cares. Stoudemire looks as happy as ever to be in the photo. Carmelo, well, looks a lot less pleased.
Nowhere in Melo’s contract does it say he has to take pictures with teenybopper pop-stars, doesn’t anyone know that?
In other, important news, the NBA season begins in less than a day. The Knicks will begin their first season under the Zen Master and his disciple Derek Fisher on Wednesday against the Chicago Bulls in Madison Square Garden.
