07:17 AM ET 08.28 | Can you play nice, guys? That essentially was the directive given to owners James Dolan of the Knicks and Mikhail Prokhorov of the Nets this past season during a meeting orchestrated by NBA Commissioner David Stern, who wanted to snuff any lingering tension between the two and prevent a full-blown feud, multiple league sources told The Post. "There was such a meeting and the parties both said it was a very cordial and pleasant one," said one league official with knowledge of the sit-down, which happened early in the season. The official also confirmed Stern assisted in getting the pair together in an attempt to prevent a wave of spitballs going back and forth over the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.

The players are already carrying the feud. It will get worse or in other word intense.

The Nets will never surpass the Knicks. Ever.

Kind of like the Clippers will never surpass the Lakers.
