Latest Knicks Loss Has Reporter Reaching for His Eagles Greatest Hits CD

The first thing New York Daily News Knicks beat writer Frank Isola did after the team’s disheartening Sunday night loss to the Pelicans was try and process the numbness in his game report.

Here’s Isola’s lede:

James Dolan always believed this Knicks team would make history and he was right. These Knicks now hold the franchise record for futility at Madison Square Garden, the newly transformed MSG, that is.

And here’s his third paragraph:

The numbers are downright staggering: nine straight losses overall and a franchise-record seven in a row at the Garden. Who knows, maybe the Knicks will never win again.

This morning, Isola was still feeling the pain of watching the Knicks lose at home to the team with the goofy name and no Anthony Davis for most of last night’s four quarters:

We assume Isola is referring to the classic, original compilation (the Eagles have put out several Greatest Hits albums). If so, he might want to skip over “Lyin’ Eyes” and “Already Gone.” And more broadly speaking, since the Knicks have taken over for now the league territory once firmly occupied by the LA Clippers, “Hotel California” is probably another Eagles song to steer clear of. Such a lonely place, indeed.
