In case you haven't heard, New York officially belongs to the Brooklyn Nets.

Brooklyn obtained the upper hand on the New York Knicks last season, and added to their dominance with a very successful free agency, which will make sure the Knicks don't forget who the state's powerhouse is.

Brooklyn will give the first 10,000 fans attending the Oct. 25 matchup between the two teams a Kyrie Irving jersey. The giveaway is no-doubt meant to remind fans that Irving and fellow star Kevin Durant opting to sign for the Nets despite being frequently linked to the Knicks.

Many believe that the close relationship between Irving and Durant will bode well for the Nets, especially when Durant returns from his Achilles injury in 2020.

The Nets are confident that they'll wind up with the better record this year, and it'd be a shock if they didn't, but after this troll job it's important they back it up with a shutdown performance when the two teams meet.

The best way the Nets can truly troll the Knicks is by winning an NBA Championship with Irving and Durant.
