The internet discovered yesterday that Knicks coach Kurt Rambis liked a tweet with a pornographic image.

I don’t know anyone actually offended. The general tone was just laughing at a 57-year-old who seemingly didn’t realize liked tweets were public.

The Knicks have a different explanation.

Nicholas Parco of the the New York Daily News:

According to a Knicks official, however, Rambis was hacked and/or spammed. In addition to the pornography, Rambis’ account showed that he liked a money-lending tweet that he did not, according to Jonathan Supranowitz, the team’s VP of Public Relations.

“Kurt did not like those items on his Twitter page and we worked with Twitter to make sure the situation did not happen again,” Supranowitz said.

The Knicks did not explain why Rambis follows @GreatAssDaily.
