Default The Knicks don't appear to be any better than last season

I know it's only preseason, but the Knicks already seem to be lacking chemistry. Of course, anything can happen during the season, but I don't see the Knicks being any better this season compared to last season. Anyone agree?

Since the summer, I been saying the Knicks are going to suck. Randolph and Curry combo does not work.

My dad was right. I kept telling him the Knicks were an improved team, and he said Curry and Randolph wouldn't get along.

Neither are good passers out of the post in the first place. I know Randolph can shoot jumpers, the problem is that the Knicks offense is not build accordingly to accommodate Randolph and Curry's skills.

Basically, both really need to work hard to get along with each other and not be black holes. They need to work on their defense as well since both of them are softies. Thankfully, Randolph makes up for Eddy's rebounding woes, but defensively, neither really has each other back.

Although the pick and roll is hard to guard for every NBA team, these two are going to get eaten alive because neither has the lateral quickness to defend or to get back to the paint on time, or anything.

Honestly, I'll keep saying it, horrible combination.

I hope Dolan realizes changes must be made and he needs to start with Isiah.

At least we found out about the Knicks early. We should also expect an amazing race in the Southeast with Atlanta, Orlando, and Washington all battling for the best record in the NBA.

I knew the Knicks were going to be horrible as soon as they aquired Zach Randolph. Just another big with no defense seriously what does James Dolan and Isiah Thomas want to do with the Knicks? I can do a better job. Any ISH poster with a pulse could do a better job. Yes even Lebron23 as weird as that sounds.

Okay maybe not.

Is this really news? The Knicks FO makes the Lakers FO look, um... "normal."

That organization needs to be blown up.

The problem with the Knicks team is their lack of understanding (both the players and upper management)... If the players on the current roster want - I do believe they can make it to the playoffs relatively easily... Players need to understand that they have to play not only within themselves, but within a system where they can best utilize everybody... and this leads to the coach trying to implement plays where he can set players where they'll be more successful...

also try this... looks at the word 'Knicks' for like 10 seconds straight and you'll just start wondering to yourself if it's misspelled or not...

I think the team will be just a few wins better, simply because of the talent. Even if you don't have good chemistry but have good talent, you're gonna be decent. They're gonna end up with the 10th seed in the East, I"m guessing. Record prediction: uh.... 39-43.
