Knicks Fans React to Team Releasing Andrea Bargnani Highlight Tape

Like a final kick to their collectively fetal-curled fanbase, the New York Knicks released an Andrea Bargnani 2014-15 highlight tape Monday.

While billed as a "highlight" reel, the video is more like an optimistic review of the perpetually injured Italian center's last eight months:


Check out @AndreaBargnani’s 2014-15 season highlights! WATCH http://t.co/I9qb7FFzJV http://t.co/mlellJH1Qt

He followed up his shot! And he didn't catch the whooping cough! A day of days!

The tape lasts nearly three minutes, starting with some blocks and ending with a rain of offensive napalm from Bargnani. After a bit of calculating, I found that the video shows 34 of Bargnani's 164 made field-goal attempts from the 2014-15 season—or 21 percent. 

This means the Knicks find one in every five buckets scored by Bargnani to be highlight-worthy, thus making him the Dominique Wilkins of our time. 

Somehow, Knicks fans weren't jazzed to see the organization making a highlight tape for the most frustrating player on the roster:
