Noone in their right mind has either of these teams making a deep playoff run, they overachieved a couple games but you need great players to advance not just a head start on chemistry at the beginning of a season.
This qualifies as one of the dumbest comments ever posted on ISH.
Its obvious by now that the Knicks are one of the best, most battle-tested teams in the league. If Woodson can keep the roster relatively rested over the course of the season, there isn't a single reason they shouldn't make a deep playoff run.
I wouldn't bet NY over Miami in the playoffs, but right now those are the two top teams in the East. Is it impossible that the Knicks would each the Finals? Absolutely not.
