Jeremy Lin is With That Other NYC Team

  • Dates: Wednesday, November 9 at 7 p.m. ET and Thursday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. ET
  • Opponent: Brooklyn Nets
  • Venue: Madison Square Garden

The Brooklyn Nets are going to be bad. Again. Matt Borcas of the Ringer argued that they’d be even worse than the Sixers which is just plain hurtful.

That doesn’t change the fact that the Nets and Knicks share the same city. Until now there hasn’t been much of a rivalry there.

Not until the Nets signed Jeremy Lin anyway. Knicks fans all remember when Lin had an incredible 35 game stretch game stretch back in 2011-12 that was aptly dubbed “Linsanity”.

A familiar face returning back to the Garden in a rival uniform will at least bring some attention to this previously neglected game.

The Knicks should dominate the Nets.
