Another reason Knicks get the "talented" label is because of all the guys that could start for them. Think about it...Lee, Balkman, Robinson, Rose, Jeffries, Collins and Jones could also reasonably start and play major minutes. And these guys are all backups...
So its not that Knicks are so talented, its that they are very deep. But of course again, being deep doesn't translate to wins....
