Default Why Do People Continue to Overrate the Knicks

I don't think there has been a more overrated 7-8th seed team than the current knicks, ever

It happens every year. I think they were calling themselves championship contenders in 2004 or something.

The only people who overrate the Knicks are Knick fans.

Everyone else laughs at their predictions, such as they'll give the Heat a hard time and they would make the ECF.

Now that they lost Jeremy Lin, they are definitely overrated.

There were a lot of non-Knicks fans in that thread saying they would beat Miami though. Don't they know Carmelo is their franchise player?

the knicks are underrated on these boards. they are not a championship team but they are nowhere near the bottom of the totem pole.

I don't necessarily mean only on ISH. I live in South Florida, and there's plenty of Knick fans around. Plus I've seen them on the other forums.

It's what makes them Knick fans...

And when you criticize the team they call you a "hater". Must be a New York thing.

New York is a big market and has a large fan base. The media is very biased, so they will always over rate a not very good Knicks team. The Knicks were great in the early 70's and had some good years in the 90's...that's it.

On top of that, they have good basketball players that were just stuck under a bad coach. It's a similar situation to Indiana in 2011. They were stuck under a bad coach, then replaced him, and went on a 20-18 run to make the playoffs. In 2012 they were the #3 seed.

In 2011, the Bulls were the team that made a huge jump from 8 seed in 2010 to 1 seed the following year. Happens all the time.
