New York— When the Knicks selected a tall white guy in the 2015 draft fans were not shy about letting their feelings be heard. The white guy from another country was greeted by hissing fans that were venting their frustration with a franchise that has not been relevant for quite some time. They desperately wanted to see D’Angelo Russell, (who is not a white guy), fall to their team, but the Lakers selected him two picks earlier.

Given the extremely low expectations, many knowledgeable and die-hard Knicks fans have been pleasantly surprised with the productivity of the tall white dude from Latvia.

“I never would have guessed this guy would become such a difference maker,” longtime Knick fan Andy Joseph told reporters. “I can’t exactly point to why I was so bummed when they drafted him, but it seems my ill feelings were a bit preemptive and misguided.”

When pressed on whether his reaction would have been different if the player was not white, Joseph was taken aback.

“Of course it wasn’t his skin color that made me doubt him,” he yelled, growing red in the face. “Don’t be ridiculous.”
