The Knicks have been one of the most disappointing sports franchises in all of sports over the past decade...
..in terms of both success and in terms of them being nice guys and being a hard working team that is easy to root for (Isiah allegations, Steph Marbury allegations, giving up Jeremy Lin, etc).
Any smart Knick fan is going to give becoming a Brooklyn fan a serious consideration.
And the Nets have been disappointing forever. 0 championships,2 Eastern Conference titles and they missed the playoffs more time than they made it.
Knicks might have sucked for the past decade but they have much more success over the history than the Nets do. 2 championships,8 Eastern Conference titles. Also during the past few seasons the Knicks have been the better team and I expect them to be better over the coming years.
