Knicks Protest Is An Embarrassment [VIDEO]

We've been hearing about it for months, waiting for the day to arrive. It was supposed to be the impetus for change, the keystone moment for the New York Knicks franchise.

No, I'm not talking about the debut of Phil Jackson, I'm talking about the well publicized fan protest held outside MSG yesterday. And lets just say it didn't go too well.

His coach is a lame duck for all intents and purposes, his Super Star is planning to opt out and his team is fighting for their playoff lives in one of the weakest conferences in NBA history. Oh, and on top of all of that he's got no first round pick this off-season and he's got major salary restrictions through the 2014-2015 season.

So, with all that said, do you think the Zen Master can pull off the impossible and bring a championship to New York.
