Ex-Knicks Fan Who Sold His Fandom Has Finally Found A New Team


Remember the Knicks fan who sold his fandom on eBay?

The bid was up to almost $2,000, and nobody knew how far it would go.

Well, we finally have an answer about his next move.

Thanks to a winning bid of $3,500 from James Riedel, a 23-year-old Orange County resident who runs a successful YouTube channel, Perlmutter will be joining Laker Nation this upcoming season.

"I am a lifelong LeBron James fan, and a Lakers fan of a month and half," Riedel wrote. "I originally thought about turning Evan into a Nets fan for the torment, but I feel like he should be able to root for the King before he retires."

The Knicks, upon hearing about the situation, provided their own response:

"We're sure our millions of loyal Knicks fans won't mind losing this attention-grabbing gentleman," a statement given to Bleacher Report by a team spokesperson read. "We remain focused on the upcoming season—with a hard-working team that is proud to represent New York and its dedicated fans."

Ouch... shots were taken on both ends.

But we'll see which side ends up with the last laugh in the end.
