If you're a New York Knicks fan upset about the start of free agency, just know you aren't alone.

ESPN's Stephen A. Smith took to Twitter to voice his frustration at his team failing to land top stars like Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving:

"The Brooklyn Nets have accomplished what we've been waiting for the New York Knicks to pull off for a half century," he complained.

Brooklyn agreed to deals with Durant, Irving and DeAndre Jordan on Sunday, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. To make matters worse, the Knicks didn't even offer Durant the max deal due to concerns about his Achilles injury, per Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

While the Knicks opened up cap space during the year, including trading away Kristaps Porzingis, they are looking likely to strike out on the top players of this outstanding class of free agents.

With just one playoff series win since 2000, it's understandable for fans of the team to express plenty of disappointment.
