    I thought the Knicks never got respect from the media?

    We just haven't gotten respect in the last 10-12 years because we haven't deserved it.

    While things change on paper "reality is still reality". The first Reality is the Celtics won the East albeit against a severly injured knick team.
    Reality two is our knicks have been reconstituted more times than frozen orange juice...last year being amazing.
    Reality three is that on paper this is the best we have looked in decade but.. Reality four is how long will it take for this team to gel.
    Reality five is what additions are still to made to the existing 14 man roster. Reality six is how healthy will the team be under this gruelling schedule.
    Lastly we come to Reality 7 and it is not Chandler and the defense but Baron and the offense. Why am so nervous about tomorrow? Conditioned to be I guess?

    Decent list, I'd say thats a respectable spot for the Knicks. I hate to defend the Celtics but they should probably be 7th after us instead of 11th and theres no damn way the Spurs are better then the Celtics.

    Dallas aint first either but if your gonna put them in 1st then why show so much respect for the Clippers? The logic really doesnt make sense

    Heres my top 10

    Heat
    Thunder
    Chicago
    LA Clippers
    Knicks
    Mavericks
    Celtics
    Lakers
    Grizzlies
    Spurs

    Thats not my final answer, i just threw this together real fast
