Who runs New York?

It appears the Knicks still own the city despite the emergence of the star-studded Brooklyn Nets as a title contender.

The Knicks remain to be the biggest draw as their tickets sold like hotcakes on Wednesday. Knicks’ Game 1 tickets sold out in less than an hour. Fans who want to watch the Knicks’ Game 1 against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday can find the cheapest tickets at Seat Geek, a secondary market, for as low as $217 and as high as $5,969 for first row seats.

Meanwhile, the Nets are struggling to sell tickets, with still a handful available at face value on Ticket Master.

Nets fans can still buy tickets for as low as $129 to as high as $529 for a lower bowl ticket at Ticket Master.

The Nets have already employed the help of one of their Big 3, James Harden, to draw fans to watch their home games in their first-round matchup against the Boston Celtics. Harden has offered a 50 percent discount on limited seats.

The Knicks fans quickly trolled the Nets with their sarcastic humor on Twitter.






The Nets have swept the Knicks this season though the last two games came down to the last possession. Unfortunately, they are on the opposite side of the Eastern Conference Playoffs bracket. Meaning, the only time they could face each other in the playoffs is at the conference finals.

A Knicks-Nets conference finals in the East could rival a Los Angeles Lakers-Clippers matchup in the West.
