Say what you want about the other crappy teams in the NBA, no team is made fun of more than the New York Knicks, and on Thursday night they once again proved why they are the laughing stock of the league. The Knickerbockers signed restricted free agent Tim Hardaway Jr. to a massive four-year, $71 million offer sheet. Yes, you read that right.
The Atlanta Hawks now have 48 hours to match the offer, or Hardaway will be on his way to New York.
Naturally, Twitter had a field day with this news:
The Knicks really just gave Tim Hardaway Jr. an amount of money 29 other teams wouldnt offer him even if the number denomination was in Yen.

New York drafted him, traded him away, and now they just gave him $71 million. The Knicks just have to do everything the Hardaway
