This Week in Knicks Social Media: Squad Goals!

New, comments

Waiting on a Friend (probably Ansel Elgort)

Starting Five

Soundtrack (I love this song/video so much)

Greetings & salutations, Knickfriends!

Remember two weeks ago when everything was awful and we were the last team to win a game and the tank was soldiering ponderously on and we were on pace to snag Luka Doncic AND Miles Porter Jr., in an unprecedented draft night coup? NO MORE. Those days are past. Now we are champeenz and unbeatable when Kristaps Porzingis is in the lineup—like “Aaron Judge who?”—and why even bother playing the Warriors in the Finals, it would only humiliate them. Happy days are here! (For now, as long as KP plays.)

Winning teams are happy teams and happy teams are friendly teams and our team is friendly as fuck. For the time being, it’s one big love fest.

They play pranks on each other!

They publicly congratulate each other (and are vaguely cheeky because KUZ GOTTA KUZ):

(note Knicks super-fan Ansel Anglebort - he’ll make another appearance later)

No, seriously, all these sweet team good vibes are making me dusty. They really like each other! (Or at least like playing with each other and commenting on each other’s Insta posts):

They affirm their (euro)Brotherhood:

Note: Enes liked the Willy/KP bother post, and KP liked the Willy/Enes brother post. There is no room for jealousy in this family!

Also please note dearly departed Brandon Jennings still giving love to his rooks.

They hang out with insanely cute kids together:

Saturday's are for the boys! Spreading the love! #KnicksWay

They go to fashion things together:

They go to Ultimate Fighting (or WWE or Extreme Hitting League or whatever this is) matches together with Dad:

(Although it looks like your boy Kristaps was there with his sponsors, not his team. SCANDAL!)

Sometimes it looks like they just plain hang out together:

Although like all families, they fight:

(I kind of forget how jacked they all are)

The players also understand the importance of the company you keep. Enes shows the way straight to the hearts of Knicks fans:

It was an honor to meet the guy who dunked on MJ #Knicks legend John Starks

THAT’S RIGHT, HE DUNKED ON MJ (not Horace Grant) THANK YOU ENES.

Cheese, on the other hand, is baby driving all over the place with Engel Anselvert,

Me: -Can I get a ride like in the movie? @ansel -Only if the team gets that W! Let's go! GAME DAY! #FILO #cheeze #Kuuuz

Keep the good vibes going, guys! It’s a long season. Remember these happy days when we lose 7 in a row in January. But hey, Luka is good too. #Squad!

Let’s finish up with a trip to Madison Square Garden to see the Rangers with Kuz. (Please, please, oh basketball social media gods, hear my pleas and do not take Mindaugas away from me). Basketball players: they ride stinky mass transit, just like us.

First act: to the game
Second act: stroll over to the Garden from Grand Central
Third act: game time!
Fourth act: GOALS!!
Fifth act: back on Metro North. Uh oh.
Finale: :(

Once a Knick, Always a Knick.
