And they must think Brook Lopez is gonna turn into Yao or something..
Even if he does turn into Yao we got Chandler and Camby to shut him down. I think thats the big reason why they dont match up well with us, they'll have there most success against teams where they can establish and go to Lopez throughout the game. A team like the Celtics will have a tough time with him, KG cant be guarding Lopez for a whole game at this point of his career. The Nets might actually match up well with the Heat too. Lopez can score, ill give him that.
Net's fans get so hyped up by his offense that they forget how much of a hole this leaves for great perimeter players to attack the rim on every play with great efficiency. That 20ppg can come from literally any other position on the field. Chandler and Camby will lock his ass down.

Yea the Nets dont have the best rim protection, an area the Knicks can capitalize on. We have 2 point guards that dish well and several players that play above the rim. Gerald Wallace is easily their best defender at the rim and Carmelo sh*tted on him last year. They're a good team but they dont match up with us. They're fans need to get off whatevers got them gassed up. We beat them 3 out of 4 at least, I guarantee it.
yeah, the Nets goal is to be a better team then the Knicks...The Knicks goal is to win a championship...we'll take the series from them this year, even if all are healthy. What happens to the Nets is DRon goes down a month or two...doh
I think the Nets finding success in Brooklyin is the only thing that can shake Dolan out of his delusion.
It might be the best thing for the Knicks if the Nets will drop the buckets.
That said, I think Dolan, by some Once-Every-20-Years-Luck, has assembled a team that can drop some buckets of its own, and we should have a fun rivalry this season.
We're underrating Brook Lopez heavily. That dude has the skill and potential to be a top 3-5 center in the NBA. I can't sleep on the Nets...just would be silly of me to do. Plus, I'm infatuated with their new uniforms.
In all honesty, I put the Nets and us right at about the same level. Small advantage to us because of Kidd and Tyson. I think we'll do well, but so will the Nets.
Would be cool to face the Nets in the playoffs....and whip em
Looks like they just picked up Blatche for nothing....not sure why we didn't for the $$
The Knicks secret weapon against the Nets is Isiah Thomas. He's coming back one way or another!!!!!!!!!!!
