Was Ja Rule the Knicks’ jinx? Here’s Why, According to Some Fans, After a Playoff Loss

SUMMARY Using Instagram photos of the rapper clutching the NBA championship trophy while sporting a Knicks jersey, several irate New York Knicks supporters—including rapper 50 Cent—have accused rapper Ja Rule of jinxing the team’s postseason loss to the Indiana Pacers.

Sunday night in the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs, the New York Knicks fell short of the Indiana Pacers in a seven-game series after the Pacers outscored the team 130-109 to end a 3-3 deadlock in the series.

After a string of Instagram photos in which he wore a Knicks shirt and held the NBA Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy, some irate fans blamed rapper Ja Rule, claiming he jinxed the franchise.

The Knicks were leading the series 2-0 when Ja Rule made the posts on May 8. However, the Knicks dropped their next four games before falling to the Pacers in the series finale.

“Now that you all have a chance, embrace that because of Ja Rule.”
