    Dark Horse team: Nuggets, This team is built the way an old school coach would want, team players with tons of depth. I truly think this team could make a magical run because they are built the way a pure basketball team should be built. They literally have NO FLAWS AT ALL expect the "franchise Superstar".
    that Denver team is built for the regular season and to upset a team in the playoffs, they only shot they got is if McGee keeps improving, Igoudala is Pippen like, and Gallo finds his inner Dirk

    Default Ranking

    Excellent annotated listing from Metro.

    Ranking the teams beyond the first and last few is very difficult. We could be very good. Our weak spot might be at point guard. Kidd is not what he once was. Prigioni is an unknown. I am not a fan of Felton, but if he can concentrate on ball distribution and defense and replace his volume shooting Knicks history with selective shooting, he could well convert me. Unless absolutely necessary, given our other offensive weapons, he should never take the last shot.

    I am intrigued by Denver and Minnesota. Keep your eye on the Russian whose name is not Kirilenko. Shved could help them very much. Denver will run the hell outof everyone else. Our games with them should be very interesting.

    It looks as if we will have Rasheed and there are suggestions that the last roster spot could go to Kenyon Martin once it is clear that he will not make more than the veterans minimum from any other team. If so, the Knicks will provide a new definition for "veteran" team.

    Good stuff Metro!

    The fact that they listed the Nets exactly one spot above shows hate!

    Look our owner has pissed off the media so they take it out on our team....ok fair enough...but take shots all they want the game is played between the lines!

    Hell they can say we are the 30th best team in the league and it won't matter one bit if we play as good as this team is built to be.

    So it may be us being overly hyped (although Knick fans are by and large realistic about our team each year) or them down playing us let the season start and let's see what is what!

    Philly? Seriously? Espns a joke. **** them I wonder what they'll say when we win a title. "They simply got lucky had the _____ made more shots they would've beat the Knicks, Knicks caught a break" suck my dick ESPN.

    While now I think we are better, I admit past performances have to count for something because we haven't played a game yet

    I could deal with being 12th because every team above that would have won atleast one playoff series in the past 2 seasons.

    But being behind the nets makes zero sense at all.

    Maybe this could be off simply of how the Nets handled us last time we met them and how Williams went off on Lin...maybe that's all ESPN remembers of the Nets vs Knicks.

    Last thing I remember the Nets were in the lottery and we were in the playoffs

    They added Joe Johnson and ****

    We added major depth in Felton/Kidd/Brewer/Camby/Wallace/Thomas

    **** the media

    Rasheed Wallace for Josh Harrelson
    Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd for Jeremy Lin
    Ronnie Brewer for Landry Fields
    Marcus Camby for Jared Jeffries
    Kurt Thomas for Dan Gadzuric
    Pablo Prigioni for Mike Bibby

    can anyone honestly say we are worse than last year??

    that was horrible but that was also minus a perimeter defender. even if the nets get the first win once shump and brewer are both back the Nyets wont be able to breathe let alone shoot the damn ball.

    Let them underestimate.

    When Felton is throwing alley oops to STAT and Melo is pouring in 30 every night, I'll be that dude tapdancing on ESPN's rankings.

    Umm..

    Chris Paul
    Blake Grriffin
    Deandre Jordan
    Chauncey Billups
    Lamar Odom
    Caron Butler

    and they added

    Jamal Crawford
    Grant Hill

    Not a bad core/ support cast.. And CP3 is the best guard in the league.
