Default Do people honestly think The Knicks are not contenders?



I'm not saying they'll win it all but really? I'd put them ahead of the Nets and Bulls for championship contention next season.

Felton/Prigioni
Shumpert/Smith/Hardaway Jr
Melo/MWP/Leslie
Amare/Kenyon
Chandler/Bargnani

Hell of a GM they have there in The Knicks front office. That is some deep talent for Woodson to coach and if this team fails next year, it's probably because of him.

If (and this is a big if) the Bulls stay healthy and the Nets come together and develop good chemistry, I think the Knicks are pretty clearly the 5th best team in the East, and there's another 5 or 6 teams in the West than I think are pretty clearly better than them, too.

Christ.

Knicks would have a successful season if they make the second round and push the Bulls to a 4-1 loss. They were glorified pretenders last year, and with the East becoming much stronger this year... you expect them to contend.

No balance in the team, full of chuckers and nutjobs, and led by a player who has the antithetical mindset of a winning leader.

Only thing Knick fans have to look forward to is Melo chucking up threes and doing that stupid finger to head sign when they drop.

People are just in a state where the Knicks have been so perennially bad for so long, that we just expect/accept that they're never going to amount to much.

And the Knicks definitely are not contenders. Anyone who thinks so should be killed.

Why do people talk about regular season records as if its a clear cut indication that is how it'll play out in the playoffs?

qft

I think the Knicks are pretty good, yeah. Talented enough to win a title, sure. But there are just too many other better teams, even just in the East.

I mean, Knicks will have to navigate through some combination of Miami, Indiana, Chicago, Brooklyn, and Cleveland just to play San Antonio, OKC, Houston, or LAC.

I think that's asking way too much from a team like the Knicks (immature, lots of ball hogs, etc).
