Jamal Adams‘s most recent social media appearance conjures Kristaps Porzingis nightmares for the New York Jets-Knicks fan.

“Stay woke.” (As if the New York Jets-Knicks fan had any other choice but to remain in a firm, deep, dark sleep based on the last 10 years.)

Does it matter what the fan feels? This is a business, and Jamal Adams’s desire to get paid this offseason is priority No. 1, something fans (for the most part) understand.

What’s tough to fully decipher is the verbiage used by Adams on his latest public social media outing that’s added the latest chapter to his disgruntled contract extension novel (considered by many to be a torturous, long-winded affair).

“As they should,” Adams commented. “Well deserved MG (Myles Garret). I can’t even get my first proposal that they said they would send over in January.

“I was called selfish, tho. Lol. A lot of talk no action.” #StayWoke

Capping the aggravating sentiment off with two words clustered as one in a hashtag immediately struck fear in the hearts of so many Jets fans in the world—the very same who also root on the New York Knicks.

“The city deserves better than that…. My suggestion for Knicks fans is to STAY WOKE!! Peace,” Kristaps Porzingis wrote on his Instagram account after the trade that sent him to the Dallas Mavericks in early 2019.

Money, emotion, youth, stubbornness and frustration are all present when thinking about both situations (Adams and Porzingis), and all fans can do is let it play out.

Adams, 24, has been extremely vocal about wanting a new deal. This puts his employer in a tough spot. Rarely does a kid get that first big contract after just the third year of his rookie deal.
