The Knicks went into practice Tuesday afternoon still reeling from a shameful 121-107 home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday.
The team played perhaps their worst game of the season and guards Brandon Jennings and Courtney Lee offered no excuses for the pitiful performance. Jennings had this to say to assembled media:
You can’t coach effort and energy. That’s something we should all have. I mean, we all make millions of dollars playing this game, so the least we can do is go out there and play hard every night.
Lee went as far as to offer an apology to the fans for their performance.
Definitely got to apologize to the fans and everybody that spent their hard-earned money to come watch us play. We definitely didn’t show up and compete at a level that we needed to compete at to win the game, especially in the situation we’re in right now and where we’re trying to go.
Courtney Lee says NY needs to improve ‘d’, hold selves accountable: ‘We’ve been saying the same s–t all year. Now it’s time to do it.’

At this point, most Knick fans have reached a stage of complete apathy (present company included). Show me Knicks, quit telling me.
