The New York Knicks have gotten used to losing over the past 15 years, with last season's 17-65 record being the all-time franchise worst.

It's gotten so bad that Knicks fans couldn't even enjoy star Carmelo Anthony's attempt to set the Guinness World Record for most high fives in 30 seconds at the Nickolodeon 2015 Kids' Choice Sports Awards on Thursday, July 16. Oh, the misery of being a Knicks fan continues... with seemingly no end in sight.

With two-time Super Bowl champion-turned-television personality Michael Strahan as his coach, Melo ran through a gauntlet of 130 kids standing in two separate lines. The eight-time NBA All-Star fell 10 shy of the record-setting mark with 120.

Here's a representative from Guinness giving him the bad news — disappointment that Melo has gotten used to, as a member of the Knicks.

Obviously, this was all fun and games, but after suffering through a 17-65 2014-15 season, it would have been nice for Knicks' fans to taste a little victory — even if it came by way of a Guinness World Record at the Kids' Choice Sports Awards.

Another Knicks shortcoming blew up Twitter with sarcastic posts about yet another loss. Yes, Knicks president Phil Jackson made some decent offseason acquisitions, which should at least account for a better showing in the 2015-16 season — but one's got to wonder when the franchise will have more Ws than Ls.

That gloomy projection isn't anything to high five about.
