    Default Article Suggest we win between 19-29 this season

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    At first I was pissed, and thought what idiot would think that, until I thought about how every season it seems as if we are predicting a playoff berth and it never comes to pass. Hell maybe setting the bar low will be good for us! Not to mention we own our pick in the draft, 19-29 wins is for sure a top six again! Damn already thinking of next off season!

    I do disagree that we will for sure drop the first two games of the season, I think that Philly and Miami got better, but, Miami is still very beatable, and Philly may take a month or so to gel.

    Sound Off!

    well your range expanded without Zach going lower and higher in the minimum and max amount of wins.

    I think they will win 30-40. New staff, new management, new confidence can all help in win some games that the Knicks should have won last year.

    28-35
    if crawford plays a more disciplined game
    if marbury returns to starbury status
    if galinari's name surfaces in ROY talks
    if Curry plays like he did in 06-07
    if chandler shows that he's ready for the starting job
    if david lee gets the staarting pf position
    if we get darko and he blocks shots like crazy
    we can win 40 games

    but then again
    if if was a spliff, the world wud b high

    Toons, honestly, if all of that positive stuff happens, the Knicks would make the playoffs.

    it means, if we trade xach for crap, we will have a less predictable season, but possibly real good

    I'd say a Range of 32-38 Wins. I think just having D'Antoni/Walsh over Isiah is good for 10 more wins. And don't get me wrong cause we obviously are a bad team, but we have too much talent to win 23 games. If we can atleast be in the playoff race in March i'd be happy.

    Think of how many games last year we could have won with a little bit of team chemistry involved. How many games we were up in and then lost it from the start of the second half. This is was a huge issue in why we had a low winning season, that difference could have definitely given us 10 more wins.

    im saying 13-28 the first half of the season, and then with chemistry the new system, they will pull out a 24-17 second half of the season and get in as the eighth seed with a 37-45 record, just over the hawks.

    The east is improving. The Celtics, Cavs, Pistons, Raptors, Washington, Orlando and Sixers are all legit teams. Also the Heat will be much better this year. I don't think a 37-45 record will get you into the EAstern conference playoffs anymore.

    I think your over rating the teams in the east. the raptors are a crap shoot dude, who knows if oneil will play more than 30 games this year. and I Really think player for player with chemistry we are better than the raptors. the wizards will be good, the heat I still dont believe have the bench, and a lack of a center will prove to result in a 33 win season for them. I dont care how good dwayne wade is chris quinn and company just arent a good enough supporting cast. The sixers are going to be decent, but elton brand has not played in a year, and isnt 25 any more. he had a declining season(big decline in every statistical category) after his almost mvp season, and then gets an almost season ending injury, so im not sold on them yet. The pistons will win around 48 games this year. the cavs 50, and the celts around 56. orlando will win 53 games, and that rounds it out

    the knicks will sneak in as the 8th seed with 37 wins

    this is all based on the fact i do believe dantoni is a better coach than every other coach in the eastern cof. hands down he will have that much of an impact. maybe even more, none of the other coaches match up to him in the east. except maybe larry brown, but I feel as if brown will become very frustrated with his team. The bobcats are not that good. They have skill players at the 1 2 and 3, but a weak bench, and an injury prone wallace, okafor, and morrison, and may, thats 4 players. the bucks, nothing, the nets, got worse since last year, the bulls are more sorry than the knicks chemistry wise, and the pacers , well they speak for themselves. they suck.

    did i forget something or did the Hawks make the playoffs and almost knocked off the Celtics? Joe Johnson and company is one big beast that runs you up and down the court with defense and hard-nosed basketball. The Hawks won't get less wins than the Knicks. I'd be utterly shocked if they get less wins.
