Neil deGrasse Tyson is by far the most vocal scientist and astrophysicist there has ever been. Even though his knowledge lies mostly within the astronomical field, he doesn't shy away from topical subjects, including sports.
In his latest tweet, he took an endeavor into the basketball world with an absolutely savage roast of the utterly embarrassing New York Knicks franchise.
The last time the Knicks won an NBA championship the year was 1973. Since their second title, 13 different elements have been discovered and added to the Periodic Table of Elements.
Things like this are the reason why deGrasse Tyson is so beloved. He remains relevant in the pop culture scene and does a good job of keeping up with the times for someone his age. His ideas on religion may be divisive sometimes, but something that can't be debated is the Knicks' abysmal history, prompting the ruthless roasting.
Maybe deGrasse Tyson calling out the franchise will bring about change, potentially under the watch of Leon Rose. It's doubtful, but Knicks fans need to find hope somewhere, receiving their latest reminder from one of the world's most complex minds.
