The New York Knicks took a step toward competence this week when they fired Phil Jackson, but alas, they are still the Knicks.

The franchise drafted Frank Ntilikina out of France in the first round of last week’s NBA Draft, and someone with the team was in charge of getting him a jersey. It didn’t work out well.

Let’s keep score:

First letter: Right
Second letter: Right
Third letter: Right
Fourth letter: Right
Fifth letter: Right
Sixth letter: Wrong
Seventh letter: Wrong
Eighth letter: Wrong
Ninth letter: Not there

That’s 5/9, or 55.6 percent. At least it’s better than the Knicks’ winning percentage last season.
