The lockout really sucks. The Knicks finally get competitive after us die-hards suffering through a decade of under .500 basketball and we may lose a season.
As for the Nets point, I'm not a Nets hater and I went to several games at Continental when they had their run of Finals appearances. I don't have any figures, but I don't recall them ever having great attendance from my own personal experiences. Continental holds 19,040 and each time I went I'd estimate attendance was only about 13k - 14k.
