It’s been well documented that the New York Knicks are an awful team this season.
As it turns out, the Brooklyn Nets may be a notch worse than them after seeing the two teams duke it out on Thursday night. You know it’s bad when Andrea Bargnani is trash-talking to Kevin Garnett. Yes, that happened.
The Knicks embarrassed the Nets on their own floor by 30 points and showed that they are at least capable of playing some semblance of team basketball. The Nets? They may actually be more drunk on isolations than the Knicks, which is saying a lot.
To be fair, do the Nets have much of a choice in the matter? Tyshawn Taylor, who recently replaced Shaun Livingston as the starting point guard because Livingston was playing terribly, was replaced by Livingston in the second half of Thursday’s game because he’s that bad. Neither appear to be capable of creating anything for anyone, and there is no quick fix at the point guard position for this team until Deron Williams returns. Jason Kidd may as well suit up himself since he can at least knock down a 3-pointer or two for his currently-sorry team.
