Opening Tip: Is it the jerseys?

Is it the jerseys?

The Knicks are 0-6 in their orange uniforms. The latest setback came Sunday in a 41-point loss to the Celtics on Sunday.

So, naturally, fans are wondering if the jerseys are cursed.

The players, for what it's worth, don't see it that way.

"We could've lost in the white uniforms today, it'd still been the same thing," Carmelo Anthony said on Sunday. "I'm not a superstitious guy. I won't blame it on the 12 o'clock game, I won't blame it on the orange uniforms."

It's hard to ignore just how bad the Knicks have been in the orange alternates.

Their three worst losses of the season, including a blowout home defeat to San Antonio, have come in the orange jerseys.

So that brings us to our Monday morning question: do you think the Knicks should get rid of the orange jerseys? Or should they have to wear them until they win a game in them?

Up now: Ohm Youngmisuk writes that the Knicks should be ashamed after Sunday's blowout loss to Boston.

Carmelo Anthony said it was an "embarrassing" afternoon at the Garden. Which is understandable. It was the third-worst home loss in Knicks franchise history.

But the Knicks players refused to blame Mike Woodson for the blowout defeat.

What's next: The Knicks will practice on Monday to prepare for Tuesday's game at Cleveland.

Question: Do you think the Knicks should get rid of the orange jerseys? Or should they have to wear them until they win a game in them?
