My god, the media would be RELENTLESS....same old Knicks.....Isiah never left....joke of the league...yada yada....
Nets do it and they are praised.
I mean, it could work, maybe the CeltNets experiment pays off....it's just funny how the media works sometimes.
Only factor you overlooked is the Knicks are already.. THE KNICKS.
The Nets are an afterthought in their "own" city. They need to tell the NBA world that they're for real, they're playing to win, yada yada yada. The Knicks do not need to do that.
