Mr. Bruce Ratner, in retrospect, was a super genius in moving Da Nets to Brooklyn. Mr. Marks and Mr. Atkinson are also super geniuses. It is a joy to see their team excel. Look at their depth, their can-do attitudes, and their chemistry.

Why does the media force feed us Lakers and Knicks. The Knicks have been trash for decades. The Lakers had their run, stop pretending their leadership is so great, lol. They are in Hollywood and the media pretty much forces stars to go there. Kobe, Shaq weren’t drafted by them, they pretty much had them gifted to them. It’s a new era, fans should want new teams. I mean the Cavs had their run too! Do people, besides the media, really care if Lebron wins again? Especially if it’s Lebron and KD..Enough already, it’s a new generation!

Duarte Fonseca
That just makes 0 sense. The Knicks are trash and will have a top 5 pick which can be a franchise changer (Zion) if nr 1 + Kevin Knox which seems a really solid piece + Porzingis + possibly a trade for Dennis Smith without giving any of these assets away. The Nets are a team of bad contracts who play well to be a 1st round exit in the play-offs this year and won't have that good of a pick, considering their 2 best players play the same position and they'll have to make a decision to adjust the team and a good young piece in Allen, nothing more than that.

As a Nets fan and former employee I disagree with Stephen A. Yes the Nets are better and they do have a bright future. But the Knicks have Porzingis and a potential top 3 pick in a great draft. If the Knicks get Zion, they will probably land a top free agent. I can’t see a top Free Agent going to Brooklyn.

Way to pick an awesome time to compare the state of both NY franchises 😂😂. Shit is pure comedy Steven A. You lost your damn mind brotha.

Yeah, dude, a lot of people have been clowning the Nets for "trading away their future" and stuff, and sure they had a few bad years, but at the end of the day, the last time the Nets were in the playoffs was 2015... that's not that long ago. I mean they've only been out of the playoffs for 4 years and it's already looking like they might make a return. I mean for a team that traded away everything for a couple of aging stars, they sure did manage to turn it around quick, and if players like Dinwiddie keep growing, maybe they pick up a couple big free agents, all the sudden, they're contenders.

#1)Winning in Brooklyn wouldn't be the same as winning at MSG. KD wins in NY he'll automatically be considered a GOAT. You win in Brooklyn, well thats pretty much it. We have Porzingis that's out and a top pick cooking.. If all fails(strike out free agency) our future is still looking bright. Not sure why the media act like its free agency or bust.

I don’t think it matters anymore. The game evolves and the storied history of the Lakers as good as those days were are all but ended. The new “Lakers”are the Warriors now and everyone else is gunning for them. This sport has no more room for fantasies anymore the game truly relies on team effort just as much as those handful of superstars have talent. Buckle up it’s going to be a fun ride in the post season! I got my money on the Raps coming out of the east and OKC taking down the warriors to meet the raps in the finals.

Steven As attempt @ trolling the Knicks uncovered some truth. The Knicks and the Nets are on different trajectories. The Knicks are going to add another top three pick to KP/Knox/Robinson, and to a lesser extent, Damyean Dotson. The Knicks core will be under 25. I'd like to see them continue to build via the draft-getting a late 20s 'marquee superstar' with aging tread on his wheels isn't always the best recipe for success. The truth in this is the Lakers are locked into contract chasing as they've signed an aging superstar. Knicks fans have seen how that works out. Let's enjoy the rebuild and development! #Trusttheprocess.

He forgets Brooklyn doesn’t have a Porzingis. He forgets Brooklyn doesn’t have young talent with a crazy ceiling like a Kevin Knox or Mitchell Robinson. And if the playoffs started today, the Nets having the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference says nothing. Thats a toss up every year so that doesnt say much. And you will NOT get the same publicity or contract deals playing in Barclays as in MSG. Stop it.
James Boisits
James Boisits 2 oy oldin
The fuck is so great about Mitchell Robinson? He's 20. So is Allen bro. Allen blocks superstars and puts up 12 and 8. Mitchell Robinson is putting up 5 a game and 4 boards!!!! Knox has a high ceiling you know who else had one? Frank, oof he doesn't play, or Wiggins but he hasn't turned out to be much has he. High ceiling doesn't mean anything. You gotta prove you can ball. I personally think he'll be good as well but the nets talent is proved to be effective. You're also right the Knicks got Kristaps, congrats you have a 7'3 guy with constant injuries and knee issues. That's never turned out badly for anyone huh. +Danilo Diaz
Danilo Diaz
Danilo Diaz 2 oy oldin
zam zaddy none of those guys have a higher ceiling than Knox, and he’s only 18. Oh, so is Mitchell Robinson. DLO is like a gold plated fake chain, only for show. Allen is ONLY a shot blocker. Ku-who? Dinwiddie and Caris are the only good all around players, and they’ll never even be All-Stars in the EAST lmaoooo just shush. Also, we’ll have another potential star player after this years draft. Make bs claims elsewhere.

Nets are ahead of schedule, have fun tanking like the suns for years. Kristaps is a star and has knee issues. So the fuck what? Nets can get two this offseason, that's a really shitty argument. 2 stars come to Brooklyn that ends your point. Not saying it will happen, saying it's a possibility and that is a flawed point due to the cap space they have. It's not like the heat who are paying big contracts to mediocre players getting a 7th spot every year, nets are playing with house money right now. Tanking isn't the answer to everything my dude.

Cleveland A Smith stop your Knicks / Nets recruitment propaganda bro . It's not gonna work . KD can't stand either of those teams or your big slimeball , belittling of your peers motor mouth . KD wouldn't consider either of those sesspool teams ok .The Nets are full of Marginal players , and G Leaguers . The Knicks have KP and that's it . Yeah KD is so excited to possibly leave GSW to join such prestigious organizations . The Knicks haven't won a title in 46 years , the Nets got swept once and weren't that much better in the other one in 2 NBA finals , sarcasticly speaking lol . Look, GSW will do whatever it takes to keep KD happy , and in the bay . GSW I believe soon are about to trade any day for Porzhingis , and put an end to this KD to Knicks nonsense you're pushing . You would crawl and hide under your desk I am sure if that happened hahaha . I can't wait to see that . The Knicks are irrelevant and will stay that way for years to come , so just accept it . You can't hide your GSW envy ok .
