Are you smoking crack?? It's amazing. I was actually rooting for the Knicks to turn things around because I thought it would be fun to have some local competition in the east, but I have to thank you for reminding me why I have no use for the Knicks and Rangers.... fans like you.Originally posted by cdflip78+Feb 10 2004, 08:50 PM--></span><table border='0' align='center' width='95%' cellpadding='3' cellspacing='1'><tr><td>QUOTE (cdflip78 @ Feb 10 2004, 08:50 PM)</td></tr><tr><td id='QUOTE'>Originally posted by -JetsD-Mastermind@Feb 10 2004, 06:00 PM

:ph34r: Uh Smizzy...the Knicks actually have won an NBA championship and regardless of your recent success, we have also been to more finals.
Hellooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! 3;!!!!!!!!! 3;!!!!!!!!!
It's talk like that that makes me feel proud to be a New Yorker and not a New Joisier!!!!!!!! 3;!!!!!!!!! 3;!!!!!!!!! 3;!!
Your talking about 1972? Yeah feel proud about that...
Anyway my point was the NEXT one of us to win a championship will be the Nets.
Did i make that easy enough for you to understand?
Why? Because you have Kenyon Martin who always disappears in the playoffs, or Jason Collins who has got to be the worst center in the east, or Richard Jefferson who can dunk but not much else, or Kerry Kittles who is a good scorer but sh*tty defense and my Little Cousin Jackie can box out better then that scrub.
You take away Kidd, the NETS are nothing.
You take away Marbury the Knicks are nothing, but the Knicks have better supporting cast in that they are better scorers and rebounders.
No need to get Jealous, the Knicks have a better chance.
Just a reminder.... you are making this turnaround with a bunch of Nets retreads. Van Horn, Marbury, Mutombo... been there done that.
If you actually watched any Net games and I doubt you do, you would have seen that other than Martin's bad performances last year in games 5 and 6 of the finals, he has been a MONSTER in the playoffs. Game 4 in 2001-2002 he scored 30+ and 17 rebounds and it was after that game that the REAL culprit of that Nets team came to light..... Keith Van Horn. There's your guy who disappears in the playoffs.
If you take away Kidd and Marbury, if you wouldn't trade the rest of the Knicks roster for the Nets roster you aren't being close to objective and have shown yourself to be a RAH RAH fan instead of one that knows what the hell it is you are talking about.
Here's a little lesson on the Nets for ya.....
Richard Jefferson scores 17 a game all on dunks, right?? Real perceptive, you much watch a lot of basketball
Kittles actually plays decent defense and is one of the most inconsistant shooters from the 2-guard spot in the league.
Jason Collins is a guy that does the dirty work and while he's physically limited, I'll take a guy like that any day.
The Knicks are a playoff team, no doubt about it and starting a little heat between fans of both teams is fine, but don't be an idiot about it. [/b][/quote]
Damn man chill out, you've just proved to me with your statement that your more of a "rah rah" then I'll ever be.
The Knicks are better, the NETS are good but not good enough.
