The Knicks have quadruple the upside that they had 3 months ago. Thatís the bottom line.
Of course the Nets are dead without Kidd. Just like the Spurs are going nowhere without Duncan. Lakers go nowhere without Kobe or Shaq. The T-Wolves eat A$$ without Garnett. On and on.
The Nets need people who can shot off the dribble in crunch time. They play sick D and rebound well. They transition well and are decent in the half court. If they get better in the half court, then they can win a title.
If the Knicks get Rasheed over the summer, the Nets can officially start to worry. Because we'll be better than them. Until then, it's fun just to compete if you are a Knick fan, like me. We were awful for so long. Itís fun to watch when they are sharing the ball and playing D.
