Stephen A. Smith delivers the perfect response to New York Knicks Twitter.

Stephen A. Smith has never tried to hide his NBA fandom. The sports media legend has always lived and died with the New York Knicks. Fans have seen Smith's tirades on the franchise when they underperform. Or when they miss out on a prized free agent. Something that the Knicks have done a lot of in recent years. However, the team seems to have hit the jackpot with Jalen Brunson. Brunson has been one of the most important free-agent signings of the past season.

No matter how they perform, Smith will always be a Knicks fan. Which is why his response to a tweet from the team's official account was the perfect response. The Knicks sent out a tweet Thursday asking fans to show themselves in their best Knicks gear. However, Smith had a better idea. In his response to the team, Smith delivered an all-time video clip. Have you ever wondered what it would look like to see Smith suited up for the Knicks? Have no fear, your dreams may now come true.

Stephen A. Smith Shows Excellent Handles In Video Clip

Everything about the video is phenomenal. From the iconic hairline all the way down to the high sock sneaker combination. Smith's video appeared to show him in his "NBA 2K" form. Showing everything from his Kyrie-like handles to even his dead-eye shooting that mirrored Curry. The video was enough for Knicks fans to wonder if Smith can really hoop like that. While I'm sure, he might not have the identical skill set. But something tells me Stephen A. Smith could put up points in a hurry in his day.

The video was an excellent reminder of not taking yourself so seriously. Smith is not for his brash personality and strong opinions. However, there are moments when Smith can show a lighter side. Smith should be excited, as his Knicks will be back in the NBA Playoffs this season. Do you believe Smith's Knicks can make a deep run in the Eastern Conference? Or will the media personality have his heart broken once again by his favorite team? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
