    The Nets are only bigger nationally bc of the big 3 there. Swap enire rosters ( or Jerseys ) and now the Knicks are completely Big time again and the now NY roster is only worth “what if” sepculation as the Nets…. Not a Knicks/Nets hater or fan… just callin it like I see it

    For 20+yrs the Knicks have shown they are Not willing to slowburn their way to success. They always eventually look to skip steps, look for the quickfix, & screw it up somehow. They gotta do it for more than 1season to get me to buy in that they actually have some real, solid, forward thinking leadership in place.

    Embarrassing that SAS calls himself an ESPN analyst and is saying the Knicks have a better culture than the Nets when it is well known around the league that Brooklyn has by far the best culture and best player program in the organization.

    People who say the nets are like the clippers cause they are the less respectable franchise are diluted… the lakers have 17 trophies too their name and the latest was last season… the knicks haven’t had a chip since 1973 and they only got 2 of them. New York fans are the only ones who care about them because y’all have the Dallas cowboy mentality: “WE ARE A HISTORIC TEAM, YOU CANT TALK ABOUT BASKETBALL WITHOUT US” uhhh yes we can cause yall haven’t been up too much

    Wealthy people still in New York are delusional and seem to think that they’re living in the 1920’s or 50’s version of New York when the city was at it’s peak. New York is a TRASH CITY NOW HAHA! People and businesses are moving out of NY and LA. Who cares what Knicks fans think, they’re the stupidest New Yorkers of them all.

    i think they will regret it cuz nets have ZERO DEPTH. knicks have some of the more underrated depth in the nba. they are a STAR away from being a DARK HORSE CONTENDER in the east
