Mike and Mike just said we are the 6th or 7th best team in the East
I'm sick of this bull **** from experts
Lol at least its better than what Skip Bayless has us at...he said were a 7th or 8th seed at best Im glad to see Stephen A. Smith telling him how stupid he sounds but I lost it when he said the Nets were a 4th seed
Those are the only teams I can even imagine at this point Chicago isn't on the Knicks' level until Derrick Rose comes back healthy, & I personally don't think the Pacers, the team the Knicks handled easily twice in back to back games last year & just lost their PG Darren Collison, nor the Brooklyn Nets, who just put together their team & have yet to form any type of chemistry & coming off 1 of the worst seasons they've ever had last season, are better teams than the Knicks either (if anything they are on par at best). ESPN has always been haters of the Knicks & of the Yankees. I would put the Knicks #3 or #4 in the EC this season easily, especially after how they played to end the season last year under Mike Woodson.
& Please, if they even THINK that Orlando with all their internal turmoil & their best player Dwight already checked out on them are better than the Knicks then they are seriously sniffing on some strong stuff.
Knicks will be seeded in the 3rd-5th range BOOK IT!
Camby/Thomas/Copeland >>> Jerome, Harrellson, jeffries
Felton/Kidd/Pablo >>>> Davis Bibby
Minus losing Lin for nothing our roster is improved, all we need to do is find a SG and we should be Set
Were older but we are better than you may think... throw in the training camp and well be business
Just because these ppl are on tv and the radio doesn't make them experts. Have either of them ever played real competative basketball?
These ppl have a show and thats it. Always gotta get new listeners.
They had it
Smfh I pray Melo is ready to prove these idiots wrong and now Colin Cowherd goin in on Melo but JVG handled him
But their prediction isn't ridiculous either. We have a ton of question marks, and weren't exactly a juggernaut last year.
And we just lost the one player who catapulted perhaps our seasons' biggest and most important winning stretch. That's a fact. Whether you think we need him or not.
I think we have the talent and ability to be a 4, even a 3 seed, but would I be shocked if we were the 5th, 6th....even 7th? Absolutely not. And I'd bet on us finishing 7th before finishing 3rd any day of the week.
Also, nobody talks about it, but Tyson Chandler's health is a concern, too (despite his exceptional play *and* exceptional health last year).
Betting on Knicks to finish higher than 5 would be a real bad bet, IMO. Even higher than 6.
I hope we finish 3, though.
Collins was Brown’s first coach in Washington in 2001.
"I think when people view Kwame Brown they look at a guy who was a bust as the No. 1 draft pick in the NBA," Collins said, "and that's not what we're signing him for. I had him at that period in time when he was 19 years old, and I understand the pressure that young guy was under. I wish I could go back and be a better coach and a better mentor for him at that time."
Brown is set to play for his seventh team.
"Again, we're not asking him to come in here and be the No. 1 pick like back then," Collins said. "He's coming to a place where he feels good about. I think we're going to see the best of what Kwame has to offer."

Hahahahahaha lol lmao anyone thinking the nets are above a 5th seed is dilusionsal. How are JJ and Wallace suddenly Good players when last year they were average? Lopez? Really? Humprhies? That's the best? Should be worse then the hawks big 3. Laughable. JJ and Wallace are average starters along with below average Lopez and hump. Dwill can't make this team much better. Knicks should be top 4. Predictions next season:
Possible 7th-8th: wizards, cavs (with Bynum)
As much as I cannot stand the Nets I think they have a better team than the Knicks. Joe Johnson is one of those rare players that can guarentee any team 30 more wins. Avery Johnson is a better postseason coach than Mike Woodson. And Deron Williams will be motivated to put up superstar numbers this season. The Nets have the ability to win 60 games this year and make it to the Eastern Conference finals. The Knicks would have had an opportunity to be as good as the Nets but losing Jeremy Lin will make them a 44 win team at best.
Humility is a virtue and pride is a vice.
Before LIN emerged from nowhere, what was the Knicks record again?
