Default Are you Knicks fans?

This is just a general question that I thought of because i've noticed of late that the Knicks fans seem to be in support of the Nets. I previously thought that these two teams would have rival fans, but I guess the Knicks fans support the Nets and vice versa. Is this the case? And if so, I guess my possible explanation could be that the rivalry doesn't exist because of the nets ownage of the knicks in recent years.

Some of the support from Knick fans for the Nets is probaly because they are playing the Raps. Knick fans and Raps fans hate each other and want to see the other team lose. That probaly has something to do with it. Also I think that quite a few Knick fans are Nets fans as well, from what I have read on here.

I wonder the same thing myself. I live in New York (but I just moved here in 2006) and I can't stand the Knicks, but my opinion is impartial since I wasn't born and raised here. Either way though I think The Italian is right. The support is not necessarily coming because the Knicks fans are a fan of both teams but rather because they hate the Raptors and want to see the Nets take them out.

I do not like the knicks, however I would want them to win if they were playing against teams I do not like more.

many of the Knick fans who are in support of the Nets right now are only doing so becaues they do not like the Raptors.

the Net vs knick animosity is almost dead on this board because of the Jason Kidd led 24-4 record versus them.


and I live in Manhattan, and I casually watch the knicks, but I like the Nets more because of the Captain and his style of play.

I definitely prefer the Nets, but a lot of times (especially around mid-season) I chose to watch Knicks games because they were playing hard, inspired basketball and the Nets were playing half-heartedly on the offensive and defensive end as if it meant nothing to them. I wish they had played the whole season like they did the last month.

Although it is always the exception and not the rule a lot of New Jersey and Conneticut residents will like both the Nets and Knicks. May like Giants and Jets or Mets and Yankees.

The others tend to hate the other team. I like the Nets, Devils, Jets, and Mets and hate the Yankees, Knicks Ranges, Islanders and Giants.

This almost always hold true in the city where your allegiance depends a lot on which part of the city you are from.

In NJ and CN. It usually is based on who your dad, or older brothers followed. It also depends on when you started watching sports and who was good at the time. Growing up in the 80's the Mets were sweet so I became a Mets fan. I am from Jersey so I like teams that call themselves NJ - Nets and Devs

That being said with how bad the Knicks have been over the last 5 years; and the Star power of the Nets there are a lot of city folks following the Nets. Especially knowing they will soon be a Brooklyn team and then be held as a true New York team.

I don't hate the Knicks, but I hate Marbury. I met him once at a basketball camp, and he was an absolute jerk. And plus, he tried to diss Jason Kidd, my main man. Not that Marbury's proven anything with his losing records in every single team he's played with, but still, you don't diss a classy guy like Kidd and say you're the best point guard in the league......and then make a fool of yourself by getting your butt kicked by the same guy.

I'm from Estonia and I seriously dislike the whole Knicks team so therefore location doesn't seem to matter.

But then again, I was the strange kid back in the 90's who loved Stock's and Malone's Jazz and hated MJ's Bulls. Quite few of my friends have picked on me for that reason
