View Full Version : Carmelo Responds to the Nets

Joe Johnson said Friday that the Brooklyn Nets are the best NBA team in New York City.

New York Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony's response?

We'll see about that.

"I hear they're talking trash, but we'll be ready for the challenge," Anthony told ESPNDeportes.com's Marly Rivera at an event in Washington D.C. "I haven't looked at the schedule, but when that game happens we will be ready."

On Friday, Johnson, who earlier this month was acquired by the Nets in a blockbuster trade with the Atlanta Hawks, was asked which New York City team is better.

"The Nets. Definitely, the Nets," he said.

The Knicks always have been New York's basketball team, but the Nets believe they have a chance to take over the city following an offseason in which they've added Johnson, Bosnian stretch forward Mirza Teletovic and rugged rebounder Reggie Evans to a re-signed core of Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace.

The Knicks, who made the playoffs last season before losing to the Miami Heat in the first round, re-signed J.R. Smith, brought in veterans Marcus Camby and Jason Kidd, and are weighing matching an offer sheet by the Toronto Raptors to Landry Fields........

He will learn fast that the NY media is a lot different from Atlanta. It's taboo here to say things like that. The only other one who did it that I can remember was Rex Ryan last season and that didn't work out to well. JJ has been a Net for a whole two minutes and he's saying things that all the other clubs in NY stay far away from whether it's true or not.

not sure how the knicks are underachieving so much. The nets are nothing without d12 though. Deron and jj are not a lock for them to make the playoffs. Deron is injury riddles playing in less then half his teams games the past 3 seasons and jj is really a spot up isolation shooter who had average ability to get to the rim.

With the quality of threads in this forum ... and the endless Knicks threads ... you really have to joke. No, I don't actually care. Do you guys realize how many silly Knicks threads there are in this forum? And why? That's why people joke about the team being an 8th seed.

You can stay a Knicks fan then. We don't want bandwagon fans.

Saying that the Nets have "no chance" should disqualify you as a fan. Maybe if you had said that LAST year with a terrible roster, it would've been okay. Last year the Nets had "no chance" against a lot of teams, but to say that now is pure ignorance. Keep that insight with the Knicks please

When Jason Kidd joined the Nets, he promised at least 45 wins and that Nets were going to own the NY area. He delivered on that promise big time, including back to back Finals.

Then the Knicks made the mistake of getting Mebury who proceeded to say he was the best point guard in the NBA. Not even in the NY area, but the NBA. J Kidd took that a bit personal and made sure he crushed Marbury and the Knicks every time they played.

This is the 1st time both teams have been legit playoff teams since the 80"s. Should be fun.

The rosters aren't even set yet so the Nets are still adding to their team. They just added Watson and are looking into a SF and C now. The Knicks are trying to land Hill and decide on Lin.

Let's wait until each roster is set before we say the Nets don't have a bench or whatever. There is still much work to be done.
