Most over rated is a bit dramatic. The Knicks have had their bad years but two NBA titles is more than other franchises in the league.

3) Tell them "Madison Square Garden is "The World's Most Over Rated Arena"

MSG has made some upgrades but to call it the most over rated is going to annoy New York fans. Concerts,games, and big fights have all been held at the "World's Most Famous Arena"
