Knicks fans have been prepared for the worst in the last several seasons. The team has been absolutely awful and has always struggled to make the playoffs. The Knicks were expected to be a little better this season with the additions of Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose. Their talent was on full display on opening night, but it didn't even come close to beating the defending NBA champions.

CavaliersPut on a Show.

The Cavaliers came into the game as nine point favorites and proved that they were more than worthy of that massive line with a masterful performance. LeBron James had a triple double, scoring 19 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, and recording 14 assists.

That all around performance was also aided by Kyrie Irving, who scored 29 points in his first game back. Even Kevin Love, who struggled at the end of last season, shined with 23 points and 12 rebounds. That performance left Knicks fans scratching their heads and made them wonder why they continue to support their team.

Twitter Tears Knicks Apart.

As a Knicks fan, I know how hard it is to support this team. Countless poor decisions have plagued this team in the draft and the regular season for the past decade and the team isn't looking any better. So it's not surprising to see that Twitter was ready to rail on a team that has let its fans down so many times in the past. Things started off with a Tweet about the Knicks bleak prospects for the season.

And those prospects have made some Knicks fans very sad about their team's future.

And can you really blame them?

A 29 point loss in the opener would be awful for any team in the NBA, even the Philadelphia 76ers. And there was of course the immediate reaction to Derrick Rose's proclamation that the Knicks could win every game this season.

And I think everyone saw this Tweet coming after the rough Knicks loss.

But there were some positives the teamcould take from the tough game on opening night.

And the Knicks lost on the road! The supposed best team in the league was blown out at home and did not look like the team that dominated the NBA last season.

Hopefully the Knicks will get it together before their next game against the Grizzlies so that Twitter doesn't rip them apart again.
