NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Former Knicks John Starks and Walt Frazier believe that the Knicks still have an advantage over the Nets this upcoming season, despite the major offseason moves made by Brooklyn.

“They’re still looking up at us,” Starks told Newsday Sports at a golf fundraiser to fight cancer at Lido Golf Course. “They definitely have made some great moves and we know that they’re going to be a very good team.”

“Go Knicks,” Frazier jokingly interrupted. “The Nets seem set. But there are expectations. Can they rise to the occasion and finally become the champions that people want them to be.”

The rivalry between the two boroughs has the potential to become one of the greatest in the NBA and professional sports for that matter.
