It's the best start of the season if you are a fan of the New York Knicks or the Brooklyn Nets.
Both teams are legit for the first time ever together and I don't know when was the last time where both teams were very good.
The Knickerbockers are still undeafeated with a record of 6-0 heading into Memphis tomorrow night.
Is is early to judge the Knicks, but you have to be pleased on how the way they have been playing as a team.
Even if Carmelo Anthony didn't have his best shooting night. They still find a way to win a ballgame traling by a dozen.
The veteran experience has made a huge difference so far for this team. When you have players like Jason Kidd, Raymond Felton and J.R. Smith making plays at the right time.
It tells me they are going to finish somewhere in the top three in the Eastern conference. Once they get Amar'e Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert back on the team.
They will be better than they are now, even though the New York media will try to make the team panic if Amar'e comesback and they lose their first game with him back.
I am not worried about this team's future and don't be shocked if the Knicks win a championship with this current roster.
Brooklyn finally has a professional sports team, although most NBA fans in the borough of Brooklyn like the Knicks more than the Nets.
They have a brought new excitement to the season by having a dynamic duo in the backcourt in Deron Williams and Joe Johnson.
Those two together have to be one of the best backcourts in the league and they are one of the main reasons why they are 5-2 right now.
I have a very good feeling for the Nets in their future and owner Mikhail Prokhorov has a 5 year plan which started back in New Jersey two years ago.
That plan is bring championship to his franchise by the end of that five year plan which has three years left on it and they could win a championship if they add another superstart to the team.
If they can bring another great player or two at least. They will be a title contender.
Who owns NYC:
The Knicks or the Nets?

J.R. Smith is enjoying a stretch in which he is playing the best basketball of his career. He’s currently averaging 18.2 points per game this season, which is second on the club trailing only Carmelo Anthony. This morning when asked about head coach Mike Woodson calling Smith “more professional,” J.R. gave the reason why: he’s not partying as much. Smith said:
With the amount of microphones they put on the court these days, NBA viewers are subjected to a new level of intimacy with the players, coaches and even the refs. You get the occasional “F-Bomb,” some insight into coaching strategy and, best of all, some trash talk.
Rasheed Wallace has a big mouth, that’s nothing new, but he has an interesting way of getting inside his opponents’...
Very rarely do I nit-pick about athlete swag. Personality, style of dress, hairdo. All these things are usually off limits for me because who am I to say somebody else’s steeze should be done away with. But when it comes to these high top fades slowly creeping their way back into the NBA and pop culture I have got to take a stand. We’re all haters when it comes to some aspects...
Carmelo Anthony kept the ball moving, setting up key baskets for Raymond Felton, J.R. Smith and Jason Kidd.
After handing the New York Knicks their first loss of the season, the Memphis Grizzlies now have the NBA's best record.
Zach Randolph had 20 points and 15 rebounds, Marc Gasol added 24 points and the Grizzlies beat the Knicks 105-95 Friday night, ending New York's season-opening eight-game winning streak.
Memphis used a big third-quarter run to increase its lead to 21 points...
Here's your soundtrack for this one. Play in the background, or not.
Tonight in Memphis, the New York Knicks did something they haven't done all year, and something that every other team has done already. They lost, for the first time, and while the result wasn't in any way surprising (they were on the down slope of a back to back, they had extended a lot of energy...
New York Knicks (5-0) vs. San Antonio Spurs (7-1)
The New York Knicks are the lone undefeated team remaining in the NBA. What is most impressive is that they have won every by 10 points or more and have not really been challenged -- even against the Heat. In fact, Tuesday's win over Orlando was the first time New York had trailed in the fourth quarter of any...
Raymond Felton scored 25 points and the New York Knicks stayed undefeated by rallying to beat the San Antonio Spurs, 104-100, on Thursday night.
J.R. Smith added 17 points, Jason Kidd had 14 and Tyson Chandler 13 for the Knicks (6-0), who closed on a 22-11 run to remain the NBA's lone unbeaten team.
Tony Parker led San Antonio (7-2) with 19 points and 12 assists. Kawhi Leonard...
This one started off as we all thought it would-C’s looked tired & sloppy and were out-hustled by the Nets. After 1Q, Brooklyn was up 31-26 and the C’s had given-up 50% FG and already committed 6 turnovers.
Things then started to turn around a bit in the 2nd. Behind some fantastic play from Bass and Barbosa, who had 10 pts in the quarter, the C’s pulled to within 3...
Riding a five-game winning streak, and being the lone undefeated team in the NBA, heading into last night's contest versus the San Antonio Spurs the odds were stacked against the New York Knicks.
The last time New York won in San Antonio was back in March, 2003 and the team was facing a Spurs team that was coming off a huge win against the Lakers and owners of a record with...
