Default Knicks are a very weak 9 - 9

Not an opinion, its based on Strength of Schedule. Knicks have had statistically the easiest schedule in the entire league.

By mid January, we'll know much more about this team Knicks have an extremely tough stretch of games from mid December thru mid January.

To be fair they have played a majority of those games on the road, which makes it tougher.

Against awful teams. Anyway, we've gotten blasted at home. If anything, it's looking like this team would rather play road games. They've only played two games against good teams (Boston and Denver).

Actually the Knicks have played 8 games against teams who either made the playoffs last season or were predicted to make it.

Charlotte road W
Charlotte home W
Denver L road
Boston L road
Atlanta L home
Chicago W road
Portaland L home
Houston L home

That isn't pathetic to me. It was to be expected.

What wasn't expected is the Knicks not playing well at home.

Strength of Schedule is retarded period! Isn't a 82 games season for everybody? Doesn't every team play the same teams? How in the end of 82 games do you come up with this stupid theory that some team had easier games? How did the spurs in the west playing in a stacked division had the easiest scheduled 2 years ago?

So the teams that are playing a Orlando team that barely have players to fill the bench are having a really dificult game because Orlando are well above .500?

So a team A that plays team b, that had a rough start but now is playing the best basquetball in the league, is having a easy game because team b is still under .500?

Crappy team a that is having the best game of the season it's still a easy game? Awsome team A that is having the worst game of the season it's still a tough game?

So many variables, Strenght of schedule my ass.

Yes thougher teams are ahead, but didn't those teams lost some games to the "crappy" teams the knicks have been playing?

The theory is that with Eastern and Western teams only playing twice a team like Golden State (just an example) gets an extra game against a tough opponent.

Watching Raps @ Knicks right now on NBA TV and they don't look all that weak to me right now; not Stoudemire anyway. The Garden is chanting 'MVP... MVP' right now. Felton just hit a three, it's a wrap (pun-intended).

I haven't been following the Knicks that closely this year, but 14-9 is impressive by Knicks standards the past decade or so.

This 14-9 comes at on the helm of a massive losing streak.

But 10 out the last 11, six in a row.
