Your right and i agree with you, we do have the highest payroll and our record should be better but we've been killed by injuries all year.

David Lee - Ankle
Quentin Richardson - Back
Crawford - Ankle (Done for Season)
Francis - Knee
Jefferies - Wrist

all of them were out for some time and Q and Lee are still out.

There's really not a correlation between payroll and wins in the NBA.

The 7 highest payrolls belong to NY, Dallas, Portland, Philly, Indiana, LAL, and NJ. Only Dallas can be considered a quality team of that bunch.

The Knicks spend money like it is nothing and acquire assets because they can. At the end of the day you still need role players and chemistry to get the W's.

the funny thing is, I think that if everyone was healthy, the situation would be much like it was last year. Too many mouths to feed and too many egos. So maybe its a blessing in disguise, because now people are getting to play more and have more defined roles. Larry Brown failed miserably last year in this category.

I disagree With everyone being back we'd be worst? No.

With Crawford, Q Rich, David Lee and Jeffries we'd be find. The only one might be Francis because we all know Crawford would have taken that shot.

Knicks have some great potential...wouldn't be surprised if they made the 2nd round...depends, who are they matched up against right now?

I don't want 8th seed i feel we can slip in at 7th in front of Indiana with the way they are playing.

I don't want Detroit althuogh we beat them Every year with a crazy Finish like 3 OT/2 OT. I feel in the playoffs it would be Exciting.

Bring the Playoffs back to the Garden.

cleveland is playing pretty good right now, it would be nice to see them get the #1 seed because we always play well against them.

And the pistons always rape us.

I'd like to see the Knicks vs. Cavs in the first round. I don't know why, but that seems like it'd be entertaining.

I wouldn't want to face them. I wish Steve Francis would make his triumphant return as a top player.

I hope Francis and Marbury suddenly just figure out how to play with one another and start some serious balling in the playoffs. It'd be fun to see, though likely short-lived.

I always like it when lower playoff seeds go off and play above their level, even if they lose.

Agreed, and prolly because there would be about 0% defensive effort on the perimeter in that game unless maybe Snow has a little mini playoff revival like last year.

Best part about this the Bulls pick isn't even lottery anymore after everyone thought it would be top 3 and then they blew their big time expirer. They were set up to just dominate the East with all that talent, contracts to trade, and a top 3 pick in a crazy draft.
