On what is a somber April Fools' Day to say the least, sports fans are still trying to keep the mood light. New York Knicks fans are still the obvious choice to mess with, even during the COVID-19 crisis. Apologies, but it's to benefit the general public.

The Score posted a photoshopped screenshot of NBA and Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo' Instagram, hinting at a potential move to Manhattan.

Too soon?

With the Knicks being one of, if not the saddest franchise in the entire league, pulling a quick one on their fans is predictable. But, someone has to do it.

This isn't the first time Knicks fans were fooled into thinking they were getting a star. Just last offseason, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant were up for grabs, but both went to the crosstown Brooklyn Nets.

New York even had a chance at Zion Williamson, but after the ping pong balls weren't drawn in their favor, they settled for Duke teammate RJ Barrett.

Social media really is ruthless. Knicks fans have been through it all, and April Fools' Day isn't making this any easier on them.
