I'm confident we can beat any other Eastern conference playoff team (Pacers,Magic,Hawks,Sixers).

It's funny because usually you are pessimistic and I'm optimistic (see the Knicks record prediction thread)
But in this case I just don't see how we have a shot at beating them in a 7 game series.
We suffered their game immensely even when Rose was out.

Pacers stole 1 game (and almost won 2 more) and Hawks won 2 games against the last season Bulls (which I don't think were any worse than this year's considering Rose is injured this season and he had very little playing time with the team).

Personally I think we are better than both Pacers and Hawks were last season.
Also we had a very competitive season series despite us shooting like crap from 3-pt range. If we shot just a little better we could have actually won the season series 3-1,not the other way around.
Amare has no problem playing against Boozer while Melo always takes a dump on them.
With our best perimeter defender in Shumpert guarding their only reliable (and injured) scoring option I'm not a little bit afraid of them.

Sure,they are the favorites but I wouldn't be surprised if the Knicks knock them out.

On the other hand I just don't see us beating Miami. They are just too talented.

Default Re: The Knicks are in the playoffs what seed and why?

Honestly i just want to get a crack at the best out there, and I hope we stay in the 7th spot.

I sure as hell don't wanna get beat by a team full of role players, no matter how good their defense and rebounding is, which we definitely would against Chicago.

It seems to me like you changed your opinion.

From this post it seems like you think the Heat are a better team ("crack at the best") and the Bulls aren't flawless after all

Default Re: The Knicks are in the playoffs what seed and why?

I'm with you.

Consider this also.
Is there any difference between a 1st and a 2nd round exit? Negligible.
Between a 1st round exit and the Conference Finals? Much better.

Now, if we get the 8th seed and somehow beat the Bulls, we will probably face the Celtics in the semis, which is a very tough matchup for us.
If we keep the 7th and somehow beat the Heat (same chances as beating the Bulls imo), we will face the Pacers. That would really be a legit shot at the ECF.

I haven't changed my min on anything.

I have always said I want to play Miami.

And my post clearly states we would get slaughtered by Chicago's defense and rebounding.

Like I've said in previous threads, both team are infinitely better than us.

Default Re: The Knicks are in the playoffs what seed and why?

If we beat Chicago or Miami, I could honestly care less who we get in the next round. Anyone we beat will be a step down from our 1st round opponent. The Knicks psyche going into these playoff games worries me far more than the talent we put out on the floor. I think it'll be how well we gel more so than a team being more talented than us. Therefore, if we beat our 1st round opponent, I would feel confident we would have overcome those mental lapses that has often been a barrier towards success.

My football team Chelsea smoked up Barca's ass last night.

My basketball team need to do the same against the Heat now.

I kinda feel the Heat resting guys was a slight slap in the face. I know they're doing it to allow their "big 3" to be fresh but it also shows they could care less about having to play us in the 1st round. Game on!
