Nets still with more playoff success this millennium than Knicks

 The New York Knicks have not made the Eastern Conference Finals since the 1999-2000 season when they reached the NBA finals and lost in five games to the San Antonio Spurs.

The better part of the first two decades of this millennium was littered with four seasons and playoff less campaigns for the Knicks. 

Meanwhile, the Nets went to back-to-back NBA finals in 2002 and 2003. They made the playoffs every year from 2002 to 2007.

The then New Jersey Nets had some lean years in their final seasons at the IZOD Center at the Meadowlands and the two-year interim stop the Prudential Center in Newark. 

Upon the Nets moved to Brooklyn, they made the playoffs for three consecutive years,  followed by a rebuild and three-year dry spell.

The Nets enjoyed a great run of five consecutive playoff berths that was snapped this year. 

The Nets may not have enjoyed much playoff success, in fact, only two series wins since moving to Brooklyn. 

But since 2001, the Nets have won 11 series and made 14 playoff appearances.h

Across the river, the Knicks have had seven playoff seasons and won three playoff series. You be the judge of which franchise has been more successful this millennium.
