    If we can't get the Hawks or Bucks in the 1st then I would love to play Chicago. Thibs has run that team into the ground, they look like they can't beat the Bobcats in a series right now.

    right now i see that KG is temporaily out Marc Gasol too so this is huge chance to go back to 2nd seed


    while Pacers West is out for few games and Paul Goerge too. If Knicks are able to win 8 games from remaining schedule like 2x celtics Charlotte Milwaukee Wizards Cavs Pacers @ MSG Knicks can even reach 50 wins season 42 already.

    Just like Spike Lee.....I want Boston, period.

    I want revenge for 2011.....I still get pissed when I see KG deliberately trip TD to free up Allen for the winning 3 in Game 1.

    All I've heard up here is how Boston will take the Knicks out in a series ...... that's Boston's best shot to win round 1..... blah blah blah. This BS has calmed down alot since we whipped there asses twice in 5 days last week.....but they still think NY will fold and will be a push over.

    I pray we get a chance to shut them up in round 1. Just hold off Indiana, and it's basically a lock since Boston probably isn't moving up from 7th seed.

    ineed i understand you all i still remmebr when Bobcats even kicked their asses by 30 pts somethink like that

    No Rondo no Allen no Barbosa but KG is back means better D.

    And Yes i also remember 0-4 in playoffs when game 2 should be ended as 1-1 not 0-2.

    and 4 now its already like some1 called them "Celt dicks' but still 8 game remaining and can change anything

    only oponnent which i wana to avoid is Bulls. To much atleticism and too much physicality in roster.


    SOme1 should create POLL 4 that who u want as 1sr round enemy to destroy

    At the beginning of the season I kept mentioning we had the ROSTER to win the Atlantic Division Title ..
    when we signed player/coach HOF Jason Kidd discipline-leadership to our expensive roster.

    We are two wins away from a 50 win season .. 10 games ago I was very skeptical about us having a 50 win season.
    My skepticism was erased when injuries to Amare, Melo, and Tyson forced coach Woodson to add Kenyon Martin to our rotation. Adding Kenyon Martin was like the championship Detroit Pistons adding "The Ball Dont Lie" Rasheed Wallace to their rotation years back.

    The Knicks have the roster and "Old-Heads" to beat all the Eastern Conference postseason teams in a series ..
    we only lack a strong-strategic Head-Coach to accomplish such a task.
    Dont get me wrong, headcoach Woodson earned his props in coaching this season, but Woodson have no control over Melo & JR decision-making on the court. Which was headcoach Karl weakness of getting swept in the postseason games consistently in the first round with Melo & JR .. without Melo & JR coach Karl went 7 games vs OKC & Lakers the past two postseasons.

    Yeah I gotta agree.....the one weakness I wish we could upgrade at his HC. I like Woodson too and he seemed very promising end of last year beginning of this year....but alot of questionable decisions, etc have left me feeling a little unsure.

    Im still confident we beat Boston round 1.....Im more concerned about a series with Indy or Miami if coach isn't on his game....we'll see.

    Give Woody a little credit here guys. As alluded to Woodyhas been FORCED to trot out more lineups than LB. JR's shot selection and decision making has gotten better. That's coaching. Defense esp. In the second halves of games has been better. That's means adjustments which is coaching. And that's been without last years defensive player of the year. We got Kmart off the scrap heap and he has been productive on both ends of the floor. That's coaching. And peep the looks the players get when they take a bad shot, miss a defensive assignment, or commit a stupid turnover. You can tell by the utter disgust and dismay on Woody's face that those mistakes were talked about in practice and the players aren't listening.

    Knicks > Celtics
    Knicks > Hawks
    Knicks > Heat

    KNICKS = Eastern Conference Champions.

    Yeah I want Boston and glad it looks like we'll get them in the first round......Chicago would be tough, haven't beat them yet this year, but regardless I have faith we win first round against whoever the opponent will be.

    Now gotta see if I can score some playoff tickets for game 3 or 4 in Boston.....don't think there will be a game 6

    What are the chances Knicks play the Nets in the second round?
