At least the Knick players have played together for years, it's just finding a coach and style of play to make them all get more opportunities to impress.
Celtics, 76ers, Pistons, and Cleaveland will be the top 4 teams to beat. I think that Philly will break out this year. Iguodala is really impressing me every year and getting better. Andre miller is the floor general of that team with his great passing skills and offensive awareness. Thaddeus Young is a good SF in the making and more playing time for him is only a positive. The addition of Elton Brand put them from a B team to a A team. And Samuel Dalambert is the Center that we are drooling over. A shot blocking, good rebounding, tall center. They have every type of weapon. Offense, passing, defense, etc to go to the Eastern Championship.
Expect us to win over 30 at least. I'm guessing at best we win 38, with no injuries we can reach that number. Odds are we win 30-38 games with the other teams playing okay.
