The Knicks have a very small window to win a championship(probably only THIS SEASON). After that, they'll go on the decline while the BROOKLYN Nets get better.
You couldn't be more wrong about the window for this Knicks team. Most of the core players - Melo (28), Felton (28), Brewer (27), Chandler (30), Novak (29), Smith (27), Shumpert (22), Stoudemire (30) - are either entering or in the middle of their prime. Two of them haven't even played yet and one is not nearly at 100% due to offseason surgery (Brewer). When Kidd and Wallace leave, it will take something from the team but the culture they create this season and the knowledge they give everybody will stay. Plus you can always find some veterans who give you good minutes and provide experience.
