Are you ready for the most August of pseudo NBA stories, the kind of sort-of-about the NBA story that only matters when there is literally nothing else going on in the league? If so, then check out this story about Ja Rule being in jail and watching the Knicks. Yes, that Ja Rule, the one you thought 50 Cent had vanquished from the Earth.

From Complex:

Reports said you had friends up there—other celebrities that were in PC with you.
Absolutely. I was there with [former Tyco International CEO] Dennis Kozlowski, [former New York state comptroller] Alan Hevesi, Larry Salander, the art tycoon. They were all good guys. Me and Alan, he’s a Knicks fan like me, so we watched a lot of Knicks together, never missed a game. We talked politics. The election was going on while I was locked up, Obama and Romney so we would talk a lot about that. Hevesi is a Democrat so we were on the same side [Laughs].

It’s official — the Knicks are the official team of washed-up rappers, disgraced executives and corrupt politicians. It’s officially official and probably the exact kind of demographic the Knicks are aiming for. Because once these guys get out, think of how many hidden millions they have to spend on Knicks merchandise. Baller status.

Not to mention, once you’ve got that orange prison jumpsuit on, you’re just a pair of royal blue shoes away from being in full Knicks regalia. No wonder they’re so popular in there.

P.S. When was the last time you thought about Ja Rule and the way he walked, the way he moved, the way he talked? Feels very early-2000s, so I’m going to go buy some CD-Rs and throwback jerseys.

  1. I find this article VERY offensive, how in the hell do you figure that an orange jumpsuit with royal blue sneakers is comparable to a Knicks Uniform. I understand this was meant to be clever hyperbole but it comes off as tacky and insensitive. Nowhere in this article do you articulate the true nature of the Knicks fan base. There are plenty of children and other hard working figures of society that make up the fan base, and how this article presents it, makes it appear as though the New York Knicks are a Penitentiary Expansion team..I understand this is meant to be humorous and tongue-in-cheek but it also comes at the expense of the integrity of a great sports franchise and all of those who enjoy them.

    In short, Ja-Rule sucks, Vin Diesel looks like a poser in that pic and GO KNICKS!

  2. This guy Taylor sounds like a fu*king moron di*k sucker. He’s trying to sound intelligent, but really he sounds like a bit*h who has her period and has a tampon in his ass. Homo gets offended by reading sh*t on the internet about sports teams and jokes??? Taylor, do you swallow? Comes at the expense of the Knicks and their fans? LOL!!!! Do yourself a favor and just get the operation. No further need to tuck! Fruit Loop.

  3. I thought if I said “the guy next to Ja-Rule in the picture looks like Shane Battier”, I’d win the award for “Dumbest Comment” for this post. It’s pretty obvious I’m a distant 3rd to first two comments…

    • Let’s convince ourselves that those guys were both being super sarcastic and we didn’t get it, because if this comment section is flooded with youtube-level stupidity… I mean, what’s next, The Jones leaving The Score to join some much bigger and more popular network? That would be like Gretzky leaving the Oilers!

      • Damn, It’s about to be possible to be an ‘old school’ TBJ fan, ‘i dug TBJ back when they was on BDL maaayne’
