Fans Chant ‘Fire Phil’ Extremely Loud As New York Knicks Make Their Pick (VIDEO)

Knicks fans are at their wits end about the state of the franchise. They can’t stand Owner James Dolan, who didn’t even bother to show up or watch the draft, as well as Team President Phil Jackson, who has made it clear he wants to get rid of Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis. The Knicks have been in a downward spiral since he was hired on four years ago.
