You must be a young kid.

The Nets were a NEW JERSEY TEAM that moved to Brooklyn, where Knicks are kings of all 5 boroughs....

Brooklyn kids aren't Net fans, they are all Knick fans.

So the Knicks have such a large fan base that they can consider themselves to be either Knick fans or Net fans.. that’s pretty awesome.

Damn, that's WNBA prices! I only went to a couple games years back during the KG/Pierce season and paid a lot more.

Nets had the second worst attendance last season. Unlike the Knicks, that can lose forever, MSG always sells out and their tickets are all premium priced (Even their preseason games are expensive).

Nets can't sellout their tickets and even during the JKIDD, Vince carter days, they still had one of the worst attendances in the league. Their owner pretty much said F U to New jersey fans, but Brooklyn doesn't care about Nets.

Clipper fans are left overs, even Clipper Darrell doesn’t seem passionate about them, Net fans to me seem passionate and why wouldn’t they be they have a solid GM in Sean Marks who knows how to get assets by absorbing contracts.

Lakers have the #1 player in the NBA according to SI:

Quote:
As James (27.5 PPG, 8.6 RPG, 9.1 APG) has waded into political and social justice issues, expanded his philanthropic endeavors, launched a budding entertainment empire, and positioned himself as one of the country’s most visible fathers, he’s taken to wearing and sharing a new motto: “More than an athlete.” The 14-time All-Star and aspiring billionaire knows the financial and emotional power of catchy slogans and hashtags— from “Just do it” to “Strive for Greatness” to “Kid from Akron”—and this latest entry will serve him well as he prepares to shift out of his prime and grow his net worth in L.A.

Make no mistake: James is more than an athlete, but he’s still the NBA’s most outstanding, most valuable and most awe-inspiring athlete. He shook the league by leaving the Cavaliers for a four-year, $154 million contract with the Lakers in July, he helped open a public school in his hometown, he will sell untold warehouses full of yellow No. 23 jerseys, and he will dominate headlines, magazine covers and trending topics all season long. But when the term “celebrity athlete” is used to describe him, the emphasis should remain on the second word rather than the first. His immense basketball intelligence, extraordinary skill, unprecedented longevity as an elite player, and capacity for raising his game in the postseason and in late-game moments demand it.
Basketball historians will look back in 20 years and lament the fact that James, now 33, has just four MVPs to show for his decade-plus of dominance. Last season was another potential MVP that got away; While James Harden was a worthy winner, James had a strong case too. He played all 82 games, led the league in minutes, and carried Cleveland to 50 wins despite two roster overhauls and multiple long-term injuries to his fellow starters. Individually, he ranked in the top-three in PER, Win Shares and WARP. Although he downshifted his night-to-night effort on defense, he was the determining factor between wins and losses as often as anyone in the game. James led Cleveland to a 30-15 record in games that were decided by five points or fewer in the final five minutes, and he ranked first league-wide in clutch points, second in clutch plus-minus, third in clutch assists, and fourth in clutch rebounds.
Before a flat ending against a clearly superior opponent, James’s 2018 postseason was a mini-movie. He led the playoffs in PER, Win Shares, minutes, points, shots, free throws and assists, compiling averages of 34.0 PPG, 9.1 RPG, 9.0 APG. During 22 games, he tallied eight 40-point games, four triple-doubles, multiple buzzer-beating game-winners, his first full 48-minute playoff game since he was 21 years old, and the first 50-point game in the Finals since Michael Jordan in 1993.
Those two months of basketball featured raw emotion when he jumped on the scorer’s table after drilling a three to beat the Pacers. They featured exquisite skill when he nailed a running banker to beat the Raptors. They featured remarkable will when he posted 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists on the road to outlast the Celtics in Game 7. And they featured perhaps the most visible agony of his career when his Game 1 for the ages was undone by J.R. Smith’s blunder.
James tops this list, for the sixth time in its six-year history, because there’s no other active player who could match all the achievements listed above. And because there’s only one other basketball player in history who had the capacity to strike all the chords listed above. Like Michael Jordan before him, James the athlete will eventually be eclipsed by his own legend. But even as he prepares to lead a new team of prospects and misfits in a fame-obsessed metropolis, it’s clear that time hasn’t yet come. — BG

I still can't believe he's on our team. It's been exciting enough watching all the news on the young players working out this summer, but to add the #1 player in the league on top of that? September 24th can't come soon enough

Hopefully KL shows he's healthy and we can add another top 5 level player too on top of the #1 player and a developing young core.

You two have the same avatar so it confused me for a second. I thought you were replying to your own message. 😆

Right He's seemed to be genuinely excited all summer about being a Laker. Great to see.

C'mon man, Barclay is a nice arena, the 'Brooklyn' chants are nice too but there's no 'a lot' of Knicks fan have jumped ship to Nets. You don't see Nets jerseys in Queens, BX, Jersey... Even in Manhattan, you only see Yankees, Knicks, Lakers, Rangers, maybe Islanders and the occasional Mets
