The Zionist Conspiracy

Last night, the Rangers finally qualified for a playoff berth for the first time since the 96-97 season, while the Nets clinched their fourth Atlantic Division title in five season.
Amidst the excitement, forgotten has been that this season is the first time since 1993-94 that both the Rangers and the Nets are in the playoffs in the same year.
And we know what happened in 93-94.
(For those who don't, that has been the Rangers' only Stanley Cup championship season since 1939-40.)
Neither the Rangers nor the Nets will be favored to make it to the Finals, but with the Nets having won 13 games in a row and the Rangers exceeding expectations throughout the season, the playoffs are sure to be a time of angst, tension and - hopefully - a little euphoria.
