    Max is drunk and clearly not from NYC. The Knicks will NEVER lose the NY market to the Nets.

    Fuck th eNew York Knicks. Garbage team put together by a garbage organization with the worst owner in sports. But espn ALWAYS talks about em. Never seen a team that made the playoffs 3 times in 20 years get talked about so much. Stop this bullshit espn. Its fuckin ridiculous.

    The Knicks will never lose the NY market against the Nets. The Nets are still considered the "New Jersey Nets" to real New York basketball fans. This is coming from a die-hard Knicks fan who lives in Brooklyn and works in the city (Manhattan). Yes, the Knicks have sucked, currently suck, and probably will always suck. Regardless of that last probability, do not underestimate the loyalty behind our fan base. Every single Knicks vs Nets game in the Barclay Center is dominated by Knicks fans. I think the Nets are doing great things and wish them well.

    Can’t stand Max with his anti-Knick takes...he tries to overdo his “hot” takes...he contradicts himself between his own tales... KD is out and that was #1 Knicks guy...Klay is out...Max himself says that Knicks should not overpay tier 2 players and yet goes on to bash Knicks for not landing tier 2 player?!? he should stop talking hoops and go back to covering boxing

    First of all... Max is not a Knick fan, just disgruntled. He does have some kind of love affair with James Dolan though.

    The Lakers always get their man because they have the star studded fan base......swimming pools...moviestars...the have Beverly hills and everyone wants to live in California but me, any topflight baller wants to play in LA. you got Jack coming to every game, Denzel, and Andy, you got the Buss' that should be a TV show "keeping up with the Busses" what are they going to do this week, if they don't start winning right quick the blame game will start, coach, GM, who gets fired or traded tune in next week...... LA. everybody wants to be there, and play there...…..

    Im not understanding the media always trying to build teams for Lebron. They are pushing for free agents to go to LA why. Its always Boston LA or Knicks. All of this is to create an argument for Lebron as being the greatest if he wins a ring at 36 then the argument starts over again. The league and the media are creating teams like NBA2K.

    It's because these players can live in sunshine almost all year long and live in.....BEVERLY HILLS!

    As a lifelong lakers fan I dont think its championship or bust for the lakers, we've been bad for so long I think were happy knowing we're back on track. A good playoff run would be a successful season in my books

    Knicks can't be under pressure if they always fall short. Knicks fans get hype but something ALWAYS happens it's nothing new. Lakers have pressure because Lebron needs to win within a three year window. The Bucks are because we know they have the makings of a finals team and has an MVP caliber player on the team. The only pressure the Knicks have is High blood pressure when their team gets blown out.

    I'm A Clippers fan and Stephen A's right. The Lakers' organization couldn't find their rear-end with a search warrant and was making Daniel Snyder look tame in terms of dysfunction and still land AD and are being called the favorites. Clippers have been grinding and grinding with no drama and to not get Kawhi and get left behind as also-rans with the big-brothers flexing their muscles yet again will make it look like the same-old tale to everyone.

    Stephen A give up the Knicks. They are bad for your health. Route for the Cowboys instead. They will at least tease you with trips to the playoffs.
