Default Knicks are a fluke and here is why

Last year with Woodson, 18-6, second best record behind the spurs, best point differential, never 100% healthy, while on the toughest part of the schedule, when every expert had the Bucks making the playoffs over the Knicks because of that though schedule.

This year:




3rd toughest schedule Fluke all over.

Quote:
So far this season, the Knicks are ranked first in the NBA allowing just 87.5 points per game and are holding opponents to a league best 40.7% shooting from the field. No opponent has scored more than 40 second-half points against the Knicks and they have committed the fewest turnovers in the league.
Not impressed!

Knicks need to win both games against Memphis and Spurs to show they are not a fluke because it's not like even Miami would be lucky to win one of them...

Of course the Knicks are a fluke. 3 of their wins came at home and they played Miami (who let them win the game because of hurricane Sandy),Philly without Bynum,Mavs without Dirk and Marion and crappy Orlando team.

Also they have been shooting lights out which won't last and their defense isn't even good,it's more that their opponents are missing wide open shots.

Spurs and Grizzlies are going to destroy that shitty team. Knicks will be lucky to even get into the playoffs.

Knicks are an Epic Fail and they always will be.

They could go 10-0 and my opinion of them wouldn't change a bit. Knicks are a good team, have been for couple of years, but I don't think they'll ever be great to be considered within the tier of the elites. They are 5-0. big deal. This isn't the NFL. There are 70+ more games to go. Will overreactions ever stop on message boards? "Knicks are the best, Heat are done" Come on you cannnot be serious with this crap.

I do fully expect them to reach 50 wins this year, so consider it a semi-fluke if you will.

carmelo is overrated, fat and doesn't play D
JR is a streak shooter and will come back down to Earth
felton will put on weight as the season progresses
amare will fvck up the chemistry irreparably
the knicks don't have any quality wins
5-0 means nothing despite ending last season 18-6 under woodson
melo will fall off the mvp radar... hard
the nyets are much better than the knicks and deron williams is much better than melo
melo lead the league in scoring? lmao
jr being CONSISTENT? gtfo

50+ wins in the east ensures HCA advantage, which virtually ensures a second round appearance. that would exceed nearly everyone's preseason expectations. thus, it is far from likely to happen.

As long as the Knicks continue to play defense like this, with a player like Melo and this type of smart guard play....you're not a fluke. Easily the best roster Carmelo has ever had around him, and they're in the East. The East is a legitimate conference now more so than its been since the 90s, but still not as deep as the West.

Not to mention their 2nd best and possibly 4th best player (and the future) hasn't played.

Yup. Just like Felton is fat. Kidd is washed up and can't help. JR Smith will just chuck step back 22 footers. Rasheed is too old, as is Camby. Knicks will miss Lin and Fields. Just like all those.
