Yeah like Shaq did when they swept the Heat. No way can they dominate inside against a team with great shot blockers Big Ben, Tyrus Thomas, and Noah nuff said.

Zach Randolph is going to average over 20 and 10 again especially in the east. We'll see when the Knicks play the Bulls.

Bulls are a better team then the Knicks but the Knicks have the better Bigs.

I bet Randolf's numbers go down in the east. With the low scoring games there and with another Behomoth the rebound with him, he will lose a lot of rebounding opps. However, even with lower numbers, his impact will be greater. The east is full of undersized centers and power forwards compared to the west.

If the chemistry comes together, the Knicks are serious eastern conference contenders.

EXACTLY!!!!! A very smart Comment. Randoph and Curry can actually compliment each other to perfection with the 2 different roles they will have. Curry posting and randolph taking Fryes spot(near the free throw line) making open Mid range jumpers CONSISTENTLY unlike Frye and being able to drive and dish to curry or finish STRONG like he can. Its all a matter of Chemistry and they have a whole training camp to get it right. And for the people who continue to think Curry and randoph play the same position or run the same type of offense please stop and think before talking. Randoph CAN post but he can make consistent mid range jumpers, fade aways, and drive. HE WILL BE PLAYING OFF OF CURRY.

Im excited for NY too. And I think they have the perfect opportunity to add by subtraction.

They can get anything they need for Curry. I know they've grown to love him, but Zach is a similar post presence, but he can also shoot the ball and definately rebound better. Neither are going to win defensive POY, and both are young. Eddies trade value is high, and he could bring in shooters that can defend and a defensive oriented big.

They could keep both guys and just go out and look for a strong defensive big with another piece. As they do have Jeffries who is supposed to play the 3pt shooting defender role.

A little chemistry wouldn't be bad either. And I do think a lot of that rests on Steph's shoulders. He has to play like a pg, and pick his spots to score.
