They have good fans but they're a shitty organization. Only problem with the fans is the over hyping of their team.

I don't understand the point of you asking me that. I root for the Marlins who fvck the fans over every year and have made the playoffs only twice. I root for the Florida Panthers who have been one of the worst franchises in hockey for the last 20 years. I root for the Dolphins who have been mediocre since Marino left, and haven't won a SB in 40 years. The Hurricanes haven't been the powerhouse program they used to be in 10 years. I was Heat fan when they won 15 games.

You stick with your team no matter. Like me, eventually it pays off and you get this Heat team.

What fanbase doesn't over hype their team? Isn't that the point of being a fan? Wanting your team to get the chip every season?

Every other post you make is you explaining how you have been a fan since 1492. Cool story bro

I'm just explaining to you that you have to stick with your team. Eventually it pays off. Although I'm sure you root for other NY teams, so I guess my point was pointless.

The Knicks have been mediocre, and their fans can be obnoxious. It's not hating. Most of my negs are from Knick fans.

Perfect analogy imo:

NY Knicks/BK Nets as to LA Lakers/ LA Clippers.

Except the Knicks haven't won it since 1973.

Because most Heat fans are bandwagon Lebron dickriders. You think that's not true? Half the Heat fans on this board were cav fans.

The main reason why is because Net fans like to keep the bar low and remain under the radar while Knick fans need to be gratified with praise about their team daily...... it's insecurity. Knick fans are probably the most insecure fans I've encountered among any sport.

It's the biggest difference I can see between Knick fans and pretty much any other fan base.

Yes they are here, but I'm not. That is why I often have to explain myself. I get generalized with them.

You pop in from time to time and say how great the Nets are. Where is your list of 29 points why the Nets are better? The reality is the Net fans on this board, when it became clear they were settling in the 4/5ish range and not winning the division (which i honestly think is very solid) completely lost interest.

What do Knick fans have to be insecure about? We sucked for 15 years. During that time we stayed fans. Net fans even this year act like something good has to occur before they can be day to day fans. The Net fans are waiting for something good to occur, then they will come in. I'maVC3 is nuts, but he seems day to day like he gives a shit. I don't mean you should be unhappy if the Nets lose (ten seconds after a knicks loss i toss my kids around...i mean that in a good way...) but the total apathy is what?

The Knicks and Nets in two weeks are both going to the playoffs in solid position and one fanbase is BRING IT ON and the other fanbase is asleep. And you are criticizing the fanbase having fun?
