Default Re: Only 3 teams worse than the Knicks

After 6, total 6 games, the difference between best and worst is minimal.

I have no doubt the team will find it's groove and start to win games.

Hopefully D'antoni won't be a part of that.

I gave the team a ceiling of 45 wins and I'm sticking with it.

No way imo, they win less than 40, unless we have more injuries.

If the Knicks won the Championship this year, with D'Antoni coaching all the way, how would you feel?

He would earn the right to stay.

I don't think this teams makes the ECF with him, which I think this team is fully capable of.

My issue with D'antoni is that I don't think he is capable of leading a team to a championship.

I would feel great.

Knicks got their championship,it's all that matters.

Also I would admit I was wrong and that D'Antoni led team can win a championship.

I don't want D'antoni as the Knicks coach....that's how I feel.

However, if the Knicks were to make the ECF, or win it all under his watch, he'd earned his right to stay.

Oh God. I wouldn't even want to face Miami. Their going to demolish us like were a old building ready to go DOWN. We need to start making changes in this roster and build chemistry. I see us making the playoffs but getting the fhuked swept because our coach isn't interested in anything but money.

For me,he could go to the ECF and I would still want him gone. Didnt the Suns make to the WCF before?

Best case scenario would be to avoid Heat,Bulls and the Celtics.

But if we can't I would want to avoid the Heat at all cost.
Also I would rather play against the Bulls than the C's but that's just me.

Nah, id rather play the celtics, i think we match up better with them. The bulls got that chemistry, they are young, fast, man im more scared of them.

I disagree.
How do we match up better with the Celtics when we were 0-8 against them last year and we won against Pierceless Celtics only because Melo played out of his mind in the 4th quarter ?

Bulls are nowhere near as experienced as the Celtics and they have less weapons on offense. Besides Rose they don't have anyone who can consistently score,especially late in games.
Deng is a at best solid offensive player and Boozer is way too inconsistent.Also Ray Allen is way better than Hamilton.

Celtics have toughness,if they fall behind they will start to play hard and dirty.
Bulls don't have that.

Give me Bulls out of those 3.

bulls may be trickier to beat this year, they have rip Hamilton which will stretch the floor more than it did last year.

celtics may be broken/tired after the season and we'd have some luck beating them

but i still want the bulls

The celtics look old, tired, and slow this year. Sure we beat them without pierce but rondo whipped our ass, back to the pg issue again. I watched a couple of the celtics game this year, and im not impressed, in a series we take em.

Getting ahead of ourselves hoping to get to the playoffs.

The only way we would want the Celtics is if they're hurt outside of that I'd rather see the bulls or heat.
