The New York Knicks are 0-6 in their ugly-as-sin bright orange alternate jerseys they unveiled before the season. The New York Post reports that if the Knicks want to, they can jettison the pumpkin duds in the event that they are the reason the team is an abomination toward everything basketball is intended to be.

The NBA official told The Post the Knicks can wear the uniforms a maximum of 18 times this season and no fewer than six times under league rules.

The Knicks switched to their home whites vs. the Magic on Friday ... and won big. On Sunday they went back to the orange against the Celtics and got beaten so badly Jim Dolan's band is now JD and the Crooked Flailing Attempt.

Should the Knicks ditch the orange and go back to the home whites?
