The Knicks' dreams of drafting Zion Williamson went out the door on Tuesday when they drew the No. 3 pick during the NBA Draft Lottery.
Of course, it was just another chapter of heartbreak for Knicks fans and another opportunity for those on social media to rib Knicks fans for getting their hopes up.
Here are just some highlights to the reaction of the Knicks getting the third pick in the NBA Draft:
