1. You're seriously counting the All-Star game as a player's accomplishments? It's just a popularity contest and a showcase, hell Kobe Bryant in 1998 averaging FIFTEEN POINTS PER GAME got in. Harris= Overrated. Its simple as that, it was just a guy having a good year.

And RunningJumper, you can't be a fan of two teams. You can be a fan of one and root for another when they play, but being a fan is different.
That would be too kind...

Once I moved to NYC my allegiance shifted towards the Knicks and I ended up being a season ticket holder for both teams. I got love for both coasts.

Lopez is an excellent player. Thats literally all that is not crippling and depressing on the Jersey Shore. The iZod Center is pathetic (and no...they aren't moving to Newark so yeah...), Devin Harris has shown he's not a winner (he has skill and athleticism but lacks the killer instinct to be a superstar), and the rest of their "core" is not even comparable to anyone on the Knicks roster...and thats saying something. Courtney Lee, Yi, and Terrence Williams would 100% not start for the Knicks. None of them. I don't know what possible draw the Nets would have besides "hey by the time your contract expires, we'll be settled in Brooklyn". Get real...the Nets are going to overpay David Lee once we let him walk and they will win 17 games as a consequence. Steady improvement is nice!
The Nets are moving to Newark.I think it's been settled.They said it on Sunday.
