    love to see Knicks win this one, but lets face it New Jersey, Philly, and Boston... its a tougher division than we think.... got to think new jersey has the best chance here, we might suprise tho

    The knicks are gonna top the atlantic division.

    The X-factor will be my boy H20 - an espn insider article posted on Sept. 21st said that allan has been working all summer, his J is still silky smooth and has been draining 3's from the top of the key effortlessly.

    They say he'll be ready from training camp.

    if he comes back and is actually some use to us ill be very happy..but if hes going to come back and just take up a roster space from say Jackie Butler, Maurice Taylor etc etc I'd like him to sit down and shut up...last i heard, his speed isnt up to full not even close to consistent running, which means not a lot of running...or too much moving...which means limited D...oh wait he never played Defense in the first place..his jumpshot is beautiful and probably my favorite in the league besides the unorthodox style of Korver & Redd that I like...but besides for his legs hurting ive also got word that his WRIST is also in trouble...how you going to shoot a J with a wrist problem???

    BACK on subject...does anyone else really see Boston as a threat? not me by any means. When your big offseason pickup is Brian Scalabrine theres something wrong..atleast well place 3rd, i think well win it though

    i agree with nyknicks15, boston is defintly not a threat, they are currently in the rebuilding process. they lost the glove to mia and delonte west is a backup point guard, not a starter. did you also know that gerald green's right ring finger is half amputated? plus, nj has been battling some injuries. richard jefferson is coming off from wrist surgery, jason kidd's knees arent that great, and carter has been battling hamstring injuries. no comment on philly....*points gun at iverson*

    As a Knick Fan, The Knicks definetly.

    But seriously, I don't think the Nets can be stopped with the trio plus a up and coming star in Nenad Kristic. I think the Nets will take the division.


    But, you still gotta have hope.


    LETS GO KNICKS!

    They can be stopped if one of their 'trio' is injured like we saw last year they just barley took the eight seed and lost badly to Miami, I think they got sweept.

    Nets are looking mad good and as long as they can say injury free they really shouldnt have much trouble winning this division
