Aside from yet another lost season heading nowhere, one more headache New York Knicks players have to face on a daily basis is the maddening traffic of the Big Apple. This is definitely a huge factor for the players, who could not help but complain about all the time wasted in traffic.

For his part, Knicks guard Elfrid Payton describes the experience of driving from his home to the Madison Square Garden to an away game.

“It’s essentially a road game,” Payton said, via Mike Vurkonov of The Athletic. “Where I grew up and where I went to college at, it’s a two-hour drive. Some days it takes me an hour and a half to get to the Garden. It’s like I’m driving to college every day. To play a game.”

I guess that's one thing most of us can relate to. Despite all the millions they earn, these players are not immune to the hellish day-to-day hassle of having to ensure heavy traffic going to and coming home from work.

For sixth-year combo guard Langston Galloway, there's simply no escape, despite all the effort he has put into trying to avoid the traffic.

“I tried cutting through Harlem,” the Knicks guard said. “Tried either going the West side or the East side. Psh, none of it. None of it worked. It all was pretty much the same distance. You couldn’t get around that traffic. You had to go through it.”

There's one huge difference, though. Payton, Galloway, and the rest of the Knicks sit comfortably in their hundreds of thousands worth of sports cars, while the rest of us working folk are stuck on the subway. I guess that puts things back into proper perspective.
