Upon revealing the new team name and logo for their new NBA D-League affiliate in Westchester, the Knicks' announcement was met by feedback from fans who felt quite underwhelmed, to say the least.
Here's a look at what some fans and analysts alike have had to say on Twiiter as of late. It should be noted that we, are neither endorsing or opposing such reactions, but just merely presenting them instead.
Wait...the Knicks held a big "name our D-League team" thing and ended up calling them...the Knicks?— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) May 14, 2014
What was second choice? "The New York Knicks D-League Affiliate Located in Westchester"?— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) May 14, 2014
So the Knicks' new D-League team will be named ... the Knicks. And that's AFTER they held a contest to name the team. OK bye.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) May 14, 2014
shoulda figured they'd go with Knicks. There it is, the Westchester Knicks (#StillLikeEmpire). Here's to hoping for the Grand Rapid Drive.— Kevin Danna (@kevo408) May 14, 2014
Westchester Chris Smith’s Knicks would have been acceptable.— Zach Harper (@talkhoops) May 14, 2014
Come on, Knicks. If you wanted a horrible logo, why didn't you just ask me?— Jordan White (@JordanSWhite) May 14, 2014
It's looking like everyone either thinks the Westchester Knicks logo is amazing or terrible. Like anything else on the internet.— David Vertsberger (@_Verts) May 14, 2014
The Knicks had a contest to name their new D-League team. They totally ignored it & named them "the Knicks" instead http://t.co/it4mwVmld5— SB Nation (@SBNation) May 14, 2014
