With the sixth pick in the NBA draft, the New York Knicks select… Danilo Gallinari of Italy.
Denizens of The Most Self-Important City in the World duly boo, as expected.
Gallinari responds in his interview by calmly saying
“New York is the greatest city in the world”
thereby proving himself ten notches better than what their fans deserve. And better than me as well. Personally, I wish they’d stuck with Isiah Thomas and continued to lose for the rest of my life. (And I say this even though I care not a whit about the NBA. Why is the draft on? Background noise for SEO.)
Update: Okay, then they had to go and cheer for Darrell Arthur after a long wait in the green room. I take it all back. Or some of it.
