    Default Do you think the Knicks will make the playoffs this season?

    Atlanta lost 6 in a row and the Knicks are now only 1.5 game behind. Considering the schedule, do you think the Knicks stand any chance at getting that 8th seed with 9 games left in the RS?

    I mean, theoretically, we should be able to, but does anybody really think we could?

    This team is supposed to be fighting for their lives and they got trounced by a Laker team that didn't have Kobe, Pau, or Nash

    Much tougher schedule for us so I say very little hope even if ATL seems to want to give us the 8 spot. It will be the ultimate irony if we get mathematically eliminated by Kidd's Nets on 4/15. I am hoping we can dump Felton and Chandler this off-season for Asik and Lin. How did we ever think Chandler was worth that contract and giving up our amnesty?

    Heres the remaining schedule.

    Hollinger says Knicks only have 7% chance of making the playoffs, atl 88%. If we beat the Lakers and Cavs those odds would be more like 50/50.

    The Atlanta Hawks are doing "any means nesscesary" to get the 9th to 12th 2014 first round draft pick.
    The Knicks are messing things up for the 6 game losing streak Atlanta Hawks by staying 2 losses above them.
    Super Star Carmelo Anthony shot 1-7 in the 4th qtr. last night vs the GS Warriors.
    Knicks won the game, and the MVP of the game goes to David Lee & Bogut for being DNP.

    The remaining schedule is brutal for the knicks. They let too many easy ones and close ones slip. Atlanta might be trying to tank but somebody should tell Clevland to chill out. They are right there and their schedule is the easiest in the league.

    I actually think the Knicks could be a threat.

    But we didn't which made things way worse... either way, these few games left will be very interesting to watch. I'm wondering if these guys have enough motivation and heart to actually fight for that 8th spot.

    There's no comunication on offense/defense from Knicks players or coach, so the Knicks are not a threat to any team in a 7 game series. In the 75 games we played we didnt play one game on the same-page.

    The Knicks messed-up their chance at being a winning postseason team when Dolan traded for Carmelo Anthony (a career at getting knocked-out in the first round playoff).
    The Knicks players know they are not a threat vs any NBA team in a 7 game series having a no strategic Woodson as the coach, and a no-defense ISO-Melo ballhoggin for 48 minutes.

    Hence why I said "could be". They have the talent to be a threat, but the team was a disaster most of the season, mainly because of Woodson and maybe Dolan if he was encouraging guys to be played such as Felton when he wasn't playing well at all and J.R. who wasn't playing well either and his other problems.

    Losing Timmy just made it a lot harder. Looked like an injury that's going to keep him out for at least a few games.
