Default Should the Knicks tank to get the 3rd seed ?

It's starting to get obvious that the Hawks will be 6th and Celtics 7th.

We all know the Hawks are a much easier opponent so why not tank,get that 3rd seed and at least be almost sure that we get out of the 1st round ?
It seems like the Pacers are already doing that,lost by 19 against the Wizards.

I'm not afraid of the Pacers in the 2nd round. I think they are by far the most overrated "contender" in the league.

Give me the Hawks in the 1st round and then I'm confident we can take on the Pacers even without the homecourt advantage.
Celtics are still tough and I surely want to avoid them in the first round.


I suggested something similar last year. Of course the Knicks didn't do it so they got raped by the Heat while the Sixers got lucky (or not,considering Rose already had knee issues) and got past the Bulls.

If the team is worth their nuts, then winning in the first round should be automatic no matter whom the opponent is.

But in the 2nd round, they need home court.

2 seed should be their goal.

My answer is no.
We should not be afraid of the 1st round, whoever we play against, if we aim at something big, like we should.

Absolutely not. We aren't a lock to beat anyone. I'd rather the momentum of playing well than the seed. Besides, we could tank and still wind up with an unfavorable opponent. We don't know what other teams will do. Just go play winning basketball.

I can't realistically imagine them losing in the first round this year, regardless of the match up. If they do, then I want carnage in the offseason.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllll llllllllllllllllllllllllll no. Keep the winning going. We need to win as much as possible, and let it carry onto the postseason.



I want to bury the Celtics, not run from them.

What if we tank to 3rd and Hawks fall behind Celtics? Ask for a do-over?

I don't think it will happen but when I look at it better the Hawks have been playing like shit lately. They have a much easier schedule than the Celtics so there's basically a 80% chance that it won't happen.

No. I think we fair pretty good if not better than the celtics this year. Pierce and Kg have a bit in their tanks, rondo isn't playing. What are we so scared of? We have a MVP in melo, and jr smith is doing absolutely amazing. With healthy bigs I see is advancing, regardless of who we face.

Default Re: Should the Knicks tank to get the 3rd seed ?

Who says the Hawks are a better matchup?

Personally i wouldn't want our backcourt chasing teague all over the place, and Korver lighting us up from three.

Plus I'm sure free agent in waiting Josh Smith would love nothing more to solidify his money status by beating the Knicks.

The Hawks have their record for a reason.

The are better than old ass Boston.

This team has proven Boston is dead.

Josh Smith sucks. Jeff Teague isn't the guy who's going to knock you out of the playoffs. But Paul Pierce is.

I don't care about the record. Celtics are much better than the Hawks.

Hawks are a bunch of mediocre players playing mediocre defense and being mediocre on offense with their best player being a guy who can't shoot to save his life and their arena being MSG south.

Still better than the Celtics.

they should not lose to a team without their best player, and Pierce is not that dude.

He did nothing against the Knicks this year, they took one loss and KG had the impact, not Pierce.

I'd be more concerned with Jeff Green.

Boston is dead, i already hear the eulogy.

I really hope you're right but I think they still have something left in the tank.

We'll see soon. Celtics play mental games and this Knicks team gets frustrated pretty easily. Also Pierce always gets up for us,especially at MSG. That's my two main concerns.

I honestly dont see Boston doing the mental aspect again, not that it might not work, but because I'm positive this series will be tightly officiated and the players will be allowed to play if the sidebar stuff is gone.

Pierce hasn't been himself the whole year. he's had one good game against us and still wasn't the reason why they won.

Besides, this team talks championship goals, then should have no issues beating an inferior opponent without their best player.

I would be concerned with Rondo's triple double potential but that is not possible.
