Default How many games will the Knicks win this year?

The knicks will be better this season. But,

1. how much better will they be (how many games)? And
2. what do you feel will be the most important factor in their improvement?
3. LB being fired?
4. Isiah's coaching?
5. Up tempo offence?
6. New players?
7. Players having something to prove or
8 What?

34 games. I think they will win 11 more games than last year. They will improve but it takes time to gel together. We also start out with a tough schedule.

1. 40-45 wins

2. The play of Marbury and Eddy Curry will be the biggest factors

3. WASTE OF MONEY, WE COULD HAVE AT LEAST WAITED UNTIL HIS CONTRACT WAS EXPIRED!!!

4. It is a double edged sword for me, I want the Knicks to make the playoffs but if they do Isaih will get all the credit which I don't want to happen.

5. Won't last. Our players are mostly halfcourt set players.

6. Nobody has really been added who will really impact the team. Signing Jefferies was a huge mistake.

7. Good Motivation. Marbury has to prove the he is still a good winning player. Curry has to prove that he isn't a flop like everyone is saying he is.

its all on them gellin together if they can do that they can win 45-50. plus i seriously believe that they are goin to be very motivated next season because they didnt just imbarress themselves they imbarressed the whole city of ny they also they imbarressed the true fans who support the team even when though they havent been winning. they better come back stronger and have a better mind set for next season.

IMHO:

1. They will improve to 35 wins. But on the other hand they can produce another year (25 wins) or they can explode (let's say 43 wins). We will see.

2. Curry, James, Francis, Marbury - their atittude and playing.

3. You probably meant... How do we feel about LB getting fired? OK... He deserved it... He is an old bastard who thinks he knows everything. Yeah, I said it.

4. Zeke will be gone after this season... Adelman would be one of the better choices IMO. Zeke will probably let players play, in some cases that will be a good thing (Frye) and in some cases very bad thing (Robinson).

5. Selective runing. If they don't they will have problems with better up-tempo teams such as Denver, Phoenix, Dallas (yes, they can still run if they want).

6. No comment.

7. Every single player on the Knicks roster has something to prove after last year disaster.

We'll win 40 games, that's my prediction. We will make the playoffs for sure, but I don't know how well we can do in the playoffs. Not many of our players have been on playoff teams before.
