While the nation’s sports fans were inflicted with March Madness, a different sort of mania swept New York basketball fans as the Knicks came off their 13th win in a row last night to clinch the Atlantic Division title, the first for the franchise since 1994.
I curated accounts of the game from news outlets, sports blogs, Twitter and Facebook, and created this “newspaper” using paper.li. (Click through to see the full paper.)
My sources include tweets and Facebook posts mentioning the Knicks, the NBA and various Knicks players, the Twitter feeds of sports news outlets and basketball blogs, and YouTube videos mentioning the Knicks. These sources yielded some photos that were “actualities”– taken and posted by fans actually present at the game. However, the bulk of content (articles, posts, videos) still ended up being accounts written by professional journalists, and shared across the web.
