Default People Don't Think This is a Contender?

G: Raymond Felton / Pablo Prigioni / Beno Udrih
G: Iman Shumpert / JR Smith / Tim Hardaway Jr
F: Carmelo Anthony / Metta World Peace / CJ Leslie
F: Andrea Bargnani / Amar'e Stoudemire / Jeremy Tyler
C: Tyson Chandler / Kenyon Martin /

Looks pretty legit to me...you've got size, depth, outside shooting, athleticism, a proven go-to guy all on an improved roster that won 54 games last year while being riddled with injuries

The Knicks are not contenders, but they look pretty good on paper.

It literally all depends on Amare's knees. They'll have no problem scoring, but rebounding and defense if Chandler goes down is a worry.

3 bench players and the most overrated 'star' in the NBA in their starting lineup.

They've got Bargnani. That alone is going to hold them back. The dude is a cancer. Raptors actually played BETTER without that scrub.

No, i do not think that team is capable if beating a healthy Heat 4 out of 7 contests, so i do not believe they are a contender.

That's pretty dreadful.

The Knicks are a pretty good team though. Just not championship contenders.

contend for what?

They aren't going to beat the Heat, Pacers or Nets in a 7 game series.

Felton is not very good. I don't know when/where he got so overrated. Shumpert is pretty good, JR Smith is a scorer, no defense whatsoever.. Melo is a scorer, black hole, poor defense. Bargs is garbage. Amare is hurt. Chandler is decent. There team just doesn't fit together well. A bunch of me-first players with poor attitudes. No possible way they get to the ECF.

Wow, you know Amare has fallen off when Bargs is being tipped to start ahead of him. So glad we went with Bosh.

Defense and rebounding win championships, two things the Knicks are severely lacking in. Their ceiling is last years Warriors; solid pretenders, but not contenders

I can not stress enough how terrible Amare is now also. He's a black hole on offense and is so terrible at defense that the opposing team literally goes at him every time. He can't rebound for shit either, and his new counterpart, Bargs (fvck him), is exactly the same but with more range to blackhole with.

Obviously Tyson can rebound but he can only be on the court so many minutes and is nearly guaranteed to miss like 15 games. I really just don't see it with this team. What it really all boils down to is can they beat Miami? And no, they can't. Contenders they are not.

This team needs to be blown the fvck up. Keep Shump, Hardaway, Chandler, and the guys making little money if you want, and get rid of everyone else. Maybe Felton can stay if they pay every mcdonalds in NY not to serve him. Then rebuild with an actual plan, not just throwing names together
