The knicks have a pretty good bench. I don't know how all the other benches in the league are, but what looking at the benches of the elite teams, our bench should be just as good. Detroit has a pretty good bench, for example, but even they don't have one as good as ours considering our depth at all positions except center and our ability to mix things up.
The thing is that we might have 2 or maybe 3 players whose skill and heart cannot be denied and the rest are all basically, at this point, in need of proving themselves, whether in their effect on the team, their skill, or their heart. Our starting five as of now, whoever they may be, cannot comete with Miami's, for example, or the Spurs'.
Whereas other teams might have to rely on their starters more, we are going to have to kick it back to the bench more because they are all basically on the same level.
For the nkicks to win it will take more teamwork and smart coaching that it would with a team with dwayne wade and shaq. Or Manu, Parker, and Duncan, or The two Wallaces, billups, prince.
I think we will figure this out and the bench will have a much more important part in winning than it will on other teams, because of their depth, and because of the need.
That is all goodbye
