James Harden does some Photoshopping to throw shade at the Knicks

Which NBA team really runs New York — the New York Knicks or the Brooklyn Nets? According to the shade in the not-so-subtly cropped photo tweeted by Nets star James Harden, it’s an easy answer.

On Monday, the esteemed weekly magazine, The New Yorker released its cover art for this week’s edition. Surely in the magazine’s 96-year history, it hasn’t ever before been the instigator in some excellent Twitter pettiness.

The magazine’s cover featured illustrations of Harden, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving of the Nets, and Knicks stars RJ Barrett and Julius Randle.

Then, on Tuesday, Harden cropped the image to let his over 7 million Twitter followers know what he thought about the Knicks. His version of the cover has completely removed the two Knicks players.

With the NBA regular season winding down, the Nets and Knicks are second and fourth, respectively, in the Eastern Conference standings. So, a playoff matchup to settle the score might not be out of the question.
