Various New York Knickerbockers had a whole lot of fun on social media this past week. Let's dive in, shall we?

We begin with the ultimate Knick, Charles Oakley, who had a delightful reaction to Charles Barkley's postgame commentary:

For those of you too young to remember, Oakley and Barkley have a ... um ... history:

The Twitter exchange prompted reporter Vincent Goodwill to share this anecdote from Oakley's playing days:

I'm begging you, Mr. Goodwill, please make that podcast.

As for the non-Oakley Knicks, Kevin Seraphin headed back to his native France:

Langston Galloway paid respects to his mom. (Bonus points go to his dad for that t-shirt):

Kristaps Porzingis celebrated Latvian independence and went on a talk show:

What the hell is that thing behind him? Is it sentient? Can it hear me? Latvian muppets are scary as hell. No wonder Kristaps grew up to be such a badass -- you'd be tough as nails too if you grew up watching that thing.

That's all for this week, folks. Make sure to keep on bugging Vincent Goodwill about podcasting that Charles Oakley story!
