Regardless of any NBA team, on any given night, no matter whom the opponent is, there’s always fans there supporting their home or away team. And even sometimes, one, two, three, or more of those fans are celebrities. Also, usually those celebrities that are cheering (usually the home team) are as a result cheered on by the home crowd fans.
However, at the New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night, where the Knicks took on the Los Angeles Clippers, New York Jets football players, quarterback, Mark Sanchez and wide receiver, Santonio Holmes weren’t cheered on…they were booed.
Matter of fact, booed loudly.
The New York Jets, whose season ended months ago after they went 8-8 last season and didn’t make the playoffs certainly wasn’t forgotten by the displeased Knicks’ fans.
Now while it wasn’t clear why the Knicks’ fans were booing, the answer to the question that has been out there since the addition of newly acquired quarterback Tim Tebow was certainly answered and that question; when will Sanchez first be booed?
Is it too soon?
As for Sanchez and Holmes they would decline to comment to ESPN about the fans boos at halftime. Though, Holmes would comment to twitter as he posted on his account:
Good game going on between the Knicks n Clippers

Jets cornerback, Antonio Cromartie was also at Madison Garden Tuesday night. However, he wouldn’t bee booed, though he would be introduced as the wrong player.

The Knicks would go onto defeat the Clippers, 99-93, improving to 35-30 and move closer to locking up the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference.
Sanchez, threw for 3,474 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 18 interceptions last season and Holmes, who caught 51 passes for 651 yards and 8 touchdowns last season. As for Cromartie, known to Knicks’ announcer as “Shonne Greene” had 45 tackles, one forced fumble, and 4 interceptions last season.
