Every one loves them some power rankings. Here’s a look at the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets rosters from 27 down to one.

A rivalry between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets has never really begun.
Maybe it’s because the Nets don’t have any fans or any success since moving into the city. Either way, it’s impossible to compare the two franchises. One is in a league of its own while the other is struggling to get by. That’s why we are going to look at the rosters.
Neither squad should be bragging about the pieces that they’ve put together. Both are far from any championship hopes, the Knicks further than they thought and the Nets further than perhaps any team in league history.
As much as Phil Jackson would like you to think differently, these two teams are actually in similar situations. Neither team knows who their coach will be next year, and without first round picks both will heavily depend on free agency. With the possible exit of Carmelo Anthony, these teams could be more even than we think come next season.
For now, let’s look at what both teams are throwing out there every night. Everybody loves some power rankings. This is a ranking of every player from the two New York City NBA teams, using real plus-minus, win shares, and various other statistics.
