I'm a Nets fan. I used to root for both the Nets and Knicks, but Isaiah Thomas messed them up.


I'm a Knicks fan too, but Isiah kept making all these garbage moves and James Dolan thinks he's gonna change this team. The only reason Isiah is still GM is because the Garden still sell well and the cable ratings went up a little from last season, so that's all he Dolan cares about. Knicks have too much soap opera. As soon as Isiah is gone, they can start rebuilding.

Isiah also gave away the Knicks first draft pick to Chicago. Now they're going to get a good player who will probably turn out to be amazing. The Knicks have the highest payroll in the league, but are in last place. The whole teams a mess. Both Isiah and Dolan must go.

As for the Nets, I think they will get far in the playoffs. The Kidd-Carter-Jefferson team is pretty good and the center (forgot is name) also seems to be pretty good. I think it'll be the Nets and the Pistons or Miami in the East finals.

Nets have a good side. You guys don't know anything about basketball. The Knicks got Eddie Curry for that first draft pick. Isiah made great rades. Open your eyes and you will see that. And as soon as they get rid of Rose they will beable to start connecting. But what new rookies do the Knicks need anyways? They have Curry as center. Frae as Power Forawrd. Rose as Small forward. Francis as shooting guard. And Starbury as point. They have an awesome squad. And next year they will be contenders in the East!

The Knicks won't be contenders in the East next year, even if they do good. They still have a lot of rebuilding to do.

I read the local paper. I know way more about the Knicks' roster and problems then you. They were already loosing before Mabury's injury. And its not all Isiah's fault, others are to blame.

I think the Detroit Pistons will win 68 games I don't think they will win 70 games. And the Pistons are the first team to make the playoffs it's now to get homecourt. I still say if the Pistons won game 5 in the NBA Finals they would be champions but oh well. Detroit Basketball.

hey, they were four minutes from winning game seven, and game 5 should of went their way... Detroit played better overall in the series.

The Knicks had a young side. How do you expect them to win? They will improve!

Yeah that's true but San Antonio will win becase their players play better in the playoffs than during the season.

Yeah, when they needed defense Isiah went out and get Quentin Richardson and Steve Francis. As for the guy he did get to improve the defense, Eddie Curry, he ain't doing enough in rebounds and points consistently. But they got godd young talents like Frye and Nate so they can only be better next season. However there is still a lot of work to be done and the first thing they gotta do is get rid of Isiah. Just look at his former team, the Pistons, they got loads of chemistry and this team got nothing. Francis and Marbury can't even be compared to the Bulls' Hinrich and Gordon. Larry Brown should just give Frye the starting job and let him gain experience for next season.Letting the Hawks score 130 points and then the Lakers score 120 on the next game is painful for Knicks fan like me.

The Garden crowd already chanted "fire Thomas" and Dolan would be stupid enough not to listen to us.

I agree. Fyre is good. He should be starting. Nate also has potential. The Knicks can use Francis to trade for someone like Jermaine O'Neal.

And don't countout Phoenix. The guys are like the 4th best in the NBA and they're star player hasn't played a second for this season. Imagine when Amare returns. Phoenix will be unstoppable.

Phoenix is defiantly going in the West's top four with Dallas and San Antonio.

You don't know a thing about basketball. Francis is older than Jermaine and if Jermaine comes then Frye wouldn't even start! And what makes you think the Pacers would be willing to trade Jermaine. Now that they got Peja they will become contendors again. And also it is past the trade deadline!
