THE NEW YORK KNICKS get their NBA season started on Wednesday with a game against the Chicago Bulls at Madison Square Garden.

The team got in some practice over the weekend and invited some famous faces to join them for a scrimmage, including pop starlet Taylor Swift.

Posing for photos with a couple of the team, the singer looked to be enjoying herself a lot more than Carmelo Anthony, who seemed a bit underwhelmed by the whole thing. Still, Amar’e Stoudemire looked well-pleased.

For all those basketball hipsters out there, Swift is wearing a #13 Knicks shirt – synonymous with Mark Jackson, point-guard with the team between 1987 and 1992.

Unsurprisingly given the Knicks’ failure to reach the post-season last term, there was plenty of banter greeting the photo once it did the rounds on social media.

This was probably the best.
