Barkley: Nets will still be better than Knicks
November, 16, 2012

By Mike Mazzeo |
ESPNNewYork.com


The New York Knicks’ 6-0 start hasn’t changed Charles Barkley’s mind.

The TNT analyst still believes the Nets will be the top team in New York City by season’s end.

“The Brooklyn Nets will have a better record than the New York Knicks,” Barkley said during Friday morning edition of Inside the NBA.

Before the season started, Barkley referred the Nets as “the best team in New York.”

“If it was 2000, I would make the New York Knicks the favorite to win the NBA championship,” Barkley said.

The Nets are 5-2. Meanwhile, the Knicks won their first six games of the season for just the second time in franchise history.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

I will be sad when Chuck leaves TNT. He is the best part of that show.

Re: NBA thread 2012-13

Reggie will keep flopping until he's suspended multiple times since that's one of his only attributes to contribute on court.

Re: NBA thread 2012-13

Here's a shot from the Pistons / Raptors game the night after Thanksgiving. Good back and forth game between 2 horrible teams Bargnani torched us for 34 but Detroit held on to win 91-90.

Great shot!

Detroit really is a poor team, and I expected them to take a step up this season. At least they're not the Wizards

They were cheap $15 tickets (on sale) but I had 5 people to take, so the price was right. Plus it was a last minute plan.

I like the upper deck seats (first few rows) because they're steeper and you don't have someone's head in your face. Plus kids can see better for that reason.

Dumars swears this team has incredible potential and worked crazy hard this offseason, and I know they're in rebuilding mode so I'm trying to give them the benefit of the doubt. But it's going to be another lean year. They have some very young players. But who knows; maybe it will be like the early 2000s when they were forming a nucleus.

This town is lunacy when things are good (mid-2000's) but as you can see, you could shoot a cannon through the Palace and they're discounting tickets. The new owner has to be a bit impatient and I wonder how long Dumars will retain his job...

I get too scared about falling to sit in the upper deck seats

The Pistons do have some good young talent. They finished last season at around a .500 pace after a horrible start, so I expected that to continue through this season. The problem with the Pistons is a lack of consistent outside shooting and lack of defense. Last year the Pistons were like 28th in defense and they're around the same this season. Detroit really could use a bigger guard because Knight, Stuckey, English, Bynum are all not really big. They don't have a defensive presence on the wing.

Drummond developing would be huge, too, because they don't have a rim protector. Monroe really isn't suited to defend centers.

Dumars hurt the team by giving the keys to Stuckey and trading away Billups for Iverson. That Pistons team was declining (the Billups-Hamilton-Wallace team), but the move Dumars made was a desperation move, Iverson ruined team chemistry and Stuckey got forced into a lead role before he was ready. Then they signed Gordon and Villanueva with the cap space they received post-Billups trade. And the Pistons haven't recovered. They don't have an identity as a team. But I'd like to see them good again and see people go back to their games. Detroit sports fans definitely are loyal to their winning teams.

Re: NBA thread 2012-13

Andrew Bynum doesn't really care about basketball. The Lakers always make out of trades perfectly, it's amazing how saavy their organization is at making the correct moves at the correct times. Bynum may not play this year and will lose millions. Another big man bust it appears.

perhaps its savvy, perhaps you'll always look great if Dwight Howard lands in your lap like legacy.

no way they're rid of Bynum w/o the very fortunate acquisition of Dwight. savvy or no ...
