And right now, it connects the home boroughs of perhaps the NBA’s two most disappointing teams this season.
Remember all the back-and-forth this summer between members of the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets? Jason Kidd retired from the Knicks to coach the Nets. Raymond Felton questioned his Knicks being ranked below the Nets. Paul Pierce said it was time for the Nets to start running the city. J.R. Smith called Pierce “bitter” about having to leave Boston.
All fun stuff to help fuel a rivalry that already had a pretty good fire raging over which was the best team in New York.
Now? Given the way the Knicks and Nets have started the season, the best team in New York might be the Gauchos.
