Nets vs Knicks - The Last 10 Years in Perspective

 

Guys – Following yesterday’s playoff defeat by the Knicks I thought this was an interesting perspective to look at:

 

Over the past 10 years (from the 2001-2002 season to the 2010-2011 season) the Knicks have won 321 games and lost 499 games in the regular season.  They have made the playoffs 2 times over the past 10 years and have won a combined total of 0 games – having been swept in 4 games by the Nets in 2003-2004 and having been swept in 4 games by the Celtics in 2010-2011.  The last playoff victory for the Knicks was on April 29, 2001.

 

Over the past 10 years (from the 2001-2002 season to the 2010-2011 season) the Nets have won 384 games and lost 436 games in the regular season.  This equates to 63 additional wins (or roughly 6.3 wins per season more).  During this stretch, the Nets have compiled a post season record of 43 wins and 35 losses – having lost in 2 NBA Finals, 3 Eastern Conference Semi-Finals and having been swept in the First Round in 2004-2005 once.

 

Over this timeframe (including regular season and post season), the Nets have won 106 more games than the Knicks.

I think as Nets fans the greatest thing that you can do is offer any Knicks fans the number to the Nets ticket office and a log in to this web site. It is inhumane for any sports fan to go an entire decade without winning 1 playoff game. By doing this, you can spare the Knicks fans the humiliation of going another 10 years without a playoff victory.

This postseason proved that the Knicks will NEVER win with Carmelo and Amare and no bench and no defense.  Oh, but that's right, the Knicks are going to sign DWill and Dwight Howard and guys will choose to come to play in NY for the minimum because the Garden is the world's greatest arena! My bad!!!!
