Basketball in New York takes center stage Monday night when the Knicks travel to Brooklyn to take on the Nets. It's the first matchup between the two teams since the Nets made Brooklyn their new home. Bragging rights aren't the only thing on the line -- the Knicks (9-3) lead the Atlantic Division, followed closely by the Nets (8-4). As the two teams prepare for the game, SI.com looks back at classic photos of Nets basketball.
