Once again... None of those Championship teams did it with 5 starters who weren't on the roster the previous year. Fact.
It's kind of hard to have a top 10 defense with 4 of 5 starters who weren't here last year in Felton, Fields (rookie), Amare & Mozgov before the trade. After the trade? We have 5 starters (starting) who weren't with MDA or the Knicks last year. Fact.
It's kind of hard to have a top 10 defense when you lack a center. Sorry, but Mozgov was only averaging 3 & 4 per game & Jeffries & Turiaf will not get it done in terms of building a top 10 D.
The Knicks always had top 10 D's during the 90's but could never win a championship. We never had the offensive talent to get past Jordan & the Bulls.
Give MDA a true defensive center who can also run the floor such as Dalembert, De'Andre Jordan or Marc Gasol during the offseason & the Knicks will become a top 10 defense next year. Other than Amare... We have no shot blockers.
Give MDA a chance lmao
