If the “Knickstape” these guys keep talking about — and that showed up on Baron Davis’ shoes last season — is an And 1-styled compilation of various New York Knicks embarrassing their opponents, that’d be great. There might be no better team in the league for that kind of undertaking. I’d fully support that mission.
However, if the “Knickstape” these guys keep talking about is actually a rap mixtape made entirely of verses by various New York Knicks, then that’s even better. After all, that “Clique” flip is pretty genius (even if Chris Copeland apparently doesn’t agree) and Iman Shumpert isn’t a terrible rapper. Plus, it would actually make the Rasheed Wallace signing make sense, so I am VERY on board with this. The potential for comedy greatness is certainly there.
Oh also, the Knicks bench calls themselves Mobb Deep and that includes Steve Novak. Perfect.
This is a photo of Iman Shumpert attending an 80s party, looking like Dwayne Wayne (which, PS, is incredibly hard to type after years of writing about Dwyane Wade) or maybe an extra from those Nike Hyperizers ads from a few years back. And while you might think that he’s rocking a perfectly stereotypical 1990s look, let’s just chalk that up to him being born after the 80s ended and the fact that “A Different World” started in 1987 and ended in 1993. It’s hard to pinpoint a look when it spans multiple decades.
And just for fun, here’s a list of jokes to be made about this:
Cool Urban Outfitters starter kit.
I see Russell Westbrook finally had a garage sale.
I’m not a big fan of Jay Electronica’s new look.
Nice to see he finally upgraded to a student apartment for sophomore year.
