First, the Knicks advertised their sponsor Amtrak over Twitter, with Rose walking in a train station just a day after his infamous no-show, no-call against the New Orleans Pelicans. The tweet was deleted shortly after.
Then came this little Twitter gem featuring Rose and Carmelo Anthony talking during a timeout, which was ironically captioned “Communication is key.”
The Knicks "communication is key" tweet has now been deleted ???????????? pic.twitter.com/Gew2SohuXD

The tweet has since been replaced by this less ironic iteration.

Whether there was intent or not, it’s hard to say — but the Knicks might want to stay away from posting anything Rose-related, as it’s bound to end up in hilarious irony.
