did either of them WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP that year? NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which means neither were good enough that year. Now, certainly the Warriors had a better team than the Knicks as they were able to win more individual games - however, what prize did GS get for that??? Asking if the 2016 Knicks are equal to the 2016 Warriors is such a flawed logic. Here's why. Because team A (in this case GS) can be better than team B (in this case Knicks) but also still not good enough to win the ultimate prize.
