Knicks/Nets Billboard Rivalry Continues to Rage

The stakes (and weirdness) continue to get raised between the marketing departments of New Jersey and New York’s pitiful basketball teams. The Brooklyn Trolley Blogger reports: “Earlier this year, Mikhail Prokhorov,  new wave owner of the NJ/BKN Nets, paid for a giant ad, splashed high above 8th Avenue, just two short blocks from Madison Square Garden, home of the Knicks.  Considered brilliant at the time, the ad was all the rage.  I think everyone found humor with it; everyone except Jim Dolan that is … This afternoon I found The Garden’s response. While not as large as the ad the Nets had painted on 8th Avenue by any stretch; without any notice except by those driving down Atlantic Avenue (and not even then) the Knicks took a different tact and bought space directly inside the footprint of Atlantic Yards; site of the Barclays Center, future home of the Brooklyn Nets.”

    Jim Dolan is an idiot. Instead of playing immature games, he should be focusing on, I don’t know, trying to rebuild his team in the basketball mecca. I almost feel bad for NYN fans, and this is coming from a Sixer fan.

    Melo and Lopez vs CP3 and Amare. Thats got some real good rivalry potential. add in the BK move, I could easily see this becoming a top ten rivalry in the nba.

    Not to hurt any feelings, but is it REALLY a rivalry if both teams stink?? Kinda like a Knicks/Pacers Rivalry.

    Thanks for the link. Somewhere in my archives is a posting from Ground Breaking Day. But I think this sign thing is only the beginning. We already know Dolan has fight in him when it comes to protecting his Pop’s empire. Prokhorov early on has shown he’s not taking a back seat to anyone. The next move is on the Nets now.
    Wonder what they will come out with next?


    The Knicks are an iconic franchise on the way back to the top, while the Nets are a guppy franchise without any mystic. Real talk.
