why isnt brooklyn held to a higher standard?
 
Brooklyn basically copycatted the Knicks formula (trade all your chips for a superstar), surround him w/ Robin to Deron's batman. (joe johnson, gerald wallace, brooke lopez)

whenever the Knicks have a rough patch, the sky is falling, but the Nets are just 'happy' to be in the playoffs.

Because nets fans don't make outrageous claims about their team or its players.

Because the Knicks have always been known as a "premiere" franchise and their fans are delusional, obnoxious and self entitled for such a shitty organization

Because the Knicks are a "premiere franchise" in the "best city in the world." Even when they suck, they get a lot of coverage, similar to the Jets. The media holds NY teams to high standards. They must be like the Yankees and win 27 titles, or the Giants and keep winning SBs.

The Knicks however have been a mediocre franchise for quite a while, and when the team struggles, it's an easy story for the media. Plus the fans have a reputation of being obnoxious and overrating their team. I get more negs from Knick fans on here than anyone combined.

The Nets, on the other hand, played in the smaller New Jersey. They don't have a lot to look back on. It's basically a new franchise in Brooklyn. Even though they play in NY as well, the Knick's failures and success will always overshadow them.

Plus IDK about you, but I really don't know any Net fans.

The Knicks formula huh?

Did the Rockets copy that formula for Harden?
For McGrady?
The Lakers for Dwight?
The Celtics with KG?

.......

Don't flatter yourself.

People calling the Knicks a shitty organization with shitty fans have obviously never been to the Garden to see a game. That's ok though

The franchise itself is obviously a big money first class organization, but the product on the court has been mediocre the last decade. 1 playoff win in a decade is unacceptable, especially in the East.

What have they ever done? No star quality, always in the shadow of bigger neighbours. They will never win a championship. Most of their so called fans are secret Knicks fans.

Knicks fans are annoying as **** and act like their team is the shit. They are almost as bad as Yankee fans, expect the Yankees at least are winners so their talk is justified
