Honestly If you can say we can get back to back upsets, why stop in the Eastern Conference Finals, why not go all the way? Hell lets upset everybody

Lets take it one step at a time. We still have to win at least 5 more games and the Magic have to lose alot.

If there's one thing you need to learn as a Knick fan....it's that nothing is ever guaranteed.

If we can beat the Heat in a seven game series I don't see why we can't win it all.

But let's be realistic,there really isn't a big chance we'll beat them in a series.
It's certainly possible but not likely.

I'd settle for 7th seed. Thinking about 6th seed is too much right now. This team is unpredictable.

I can't understand how some of you want us to play the Heat in the 1st round instead of the Bulls.

We got outrebounded by the Heat maybe even the worse than we did against the Bulls.
We lost the season series 0-3 against them and to be fair none of the games were really close. They were all decided at least 2-3 minutes before the end.

On the other hand we have the Bulls team who also outrebounded us like the Heat did but they have much less talent and their star player is hurt.
We lost the season series 1-3 and 2 of the games came down to last possession.

Heat are just a much more difficult opponent.

I agree with everything you said except that this last game vs LeBitch and the boys was close

Read again. I said "really close". It was a close game but it's not "it came down to last possession close".

It was obvious that the Heat would win with 3 minutes remaining.

Your preference of opponents should be based on your teams strength's and weaknesses.

The Knicks weakness.....

Rebounding, turnovers, penetration, guarding the three, transition defense.

Both the Heat and Bulls are excellent at capitalizing on these weaknesses.

The main difference is the Bulls will absolutely clobber you on the boards, and do all the rest.

They also play for the full 48, and no matter who they put on the floor, their team defense is always excellent.

We have absolutely no advantage against Chicago at all, not a single one.

At least the Heat has shown cracks in their armor.

Heat outrebounded us by 14.
Bulls outrebounded us by 12



Heat aren't playing like they can in the regular season.
Bulls on the other hand give 100% every night.

Regular season Bulls are the same as playoff Bulls.
Playoff Heat are much better than the regular season Heat.

By that logic,we played much better against playoff Bulls than against regular season Heat.

Heat >>>> Bulls in the playoffs.
It is what it is.

Who cares which team is better than each other, we're talking about those teams against us.

The Heat outrebounded us due to the fact our center decided not to get involved.

The Bulls will do it regardless of who we put on the court, and regardless of what kind of game we have.

We beat the Bulls last Sunday due to heroics from Melo and key scores down the stretch from others.

Today, no one in the starting lineup showed up, and Tyson really should not have suited up, yet we still had a lead in the fourth.

You can't win a ball game when only one person scores in double figures in your starting lineup, and you barely get 20 boards from your starters.

Your entitled to your opinion, I just don't share it.

For our squad the Bulls are not the team I wanna see in the playoffs at all.

I guess Carmelo's 42/9/5 isn't enough to say he showed up

I'm rather going to play against the team whose only star is banged up than against the team that have 3 guys who can go off at any given night.

Chicago lost one game against the sub .500 Pacers (and 2 of other games were really close) and 2 games against the Hawks before getting crushed by Miami. All that with healthy Derrick Rose.
On the other hand we have Miami who basically cruised to the Finals.

Sorry,but I disagree with you. No way they are a better matchup for us.
Bulls are a better rebounding team but that's it. They can rebound,they can play hard but they don't have so much talent,especially with Rose being injured.
Heat will step up their play in the off season and as much as I hate them I simply don't see us winning a 7 game series against them. Avoiding a sweep would actually be a success considering Lin is out and Amare will be coming off an injury.

That was a type in the bold, my bad.

But what your comparing is not the teams themselves to us, but those teams against each other thinking that would make a difference in a series against us.

That's not how it works.

By your logic Miami should have won against Dallas in the finals, but they didn't.

This Bulls team is no where near the level of last years Bulls.

They are flat out beasting WITHOUT Rose.

Thibbs ought to get COTY again for having one of the best records without Rose for pretty much a third of the season.

LeBron Wade and Bosh are not going off at the same time.

The Bulls getting a ridiculous amount of rebounds and second chance points along with having solid three point shooter happens over the course of 48 minutes.

You cannot take a play off against them, like you can with Miami.
