Is this College Humor’s Amir Blumenfeld Giving Mike D’Antoni Advice?
At the end of the Knicks-Magic game, New York was up three with less than 10 seconds left. Jared Jeffries allowed Jason Richardson to take a three pointer without much defense and Richardson drained it to tie the game and send it to overtime. Knicks fans were all over coach Mike D’Antoni after Richardson tied it up, and one fan in particular was adamant that D’Antoni should have instructed his team to foul. That fan caught D’Antoni’s attention, and Mike even shook his head and responded to say that fouling was the wrong move as you can see in the picture above.
So what fan would be crazy enough to go nuts by the Knicks’ bench and yell at the coach in his face? Someone who happens to strongly resemble Amir Blumenfeld of College Humor. I have no idea if that is or isn’t Amir, but we do know he lives in New York, has the type of personality to get in a coach’s face during a game, and would have access to such good seats. I could be totally off here, but at the least we know Amir has a doppleganger who attends Knicks games and gets in D’Antoni’s face. Awesome no matter how you look at it.
UPDATE: Amir says it wasn’t him but he has someone at a Knicks game who looks just like him!
