Amidst one of the worst seasons in franchise history, New York Knicks fans have found a reason to laugh.
Each time a new guy enters the team's revolving door of players, the Knicks post a photo to Twitter of that man signing his contract in one of the team's offices. And fans have been quick to point out a curious detail in each of the images.
See if you notice something weird with these photos:

Each of these men is hunched over in his chair, reaching down to sign the contract on a low table. For reference, here's what it looks like when an NBA player signs a contract in a comfortable position:

The only thing in Madison Square Garden lower than this table is team morale. Under first year head coach Derek Fisher, the Knicks are an NBA-worst 15-62.
