Pictures of Taylor Swift hanging out with the New York Knicks surfaced earlier this week and the fruits of that historic meeting were shown to the world last night courtesy of the Madison Square Garden Jumbotron, with Amar'e Stoudemire stepping in to help belt out Swift's hit song "Shake it off".
Unfortunately, as the song says, haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.

Watching Amare sing "Shake it off", I think I lost years off my life watching that.— Alex Brown (@A_Brown64) October 30, 2014
As soon as I compliment Amar'e, they show a video on the jumbotron of him dancing and singing with Taylor Swift. Dammit.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) October 30, 2014
Never one to be discouraged by doubters, Swift also shared a video of her rocking the rim at MSG with some help from her new best friend.
Despite all that encouragement from their newest superfan, the Knicks were unable to shake off the Chicago Bulls, who defeated the team by 24 in the season opener.
