    It's mid-July, so I thought I would look up power rankings and see where the Knicks were. NBA.com only does the top 15 and we ain't in the top 15 right now, but the other two had us making the playoffs. The 2nd site's analysis is more fluid than the first one's. Interesting stuff regardless. Thoughts?

    I think we can overtake the Hawks - POTENTIALLY. At least based on talent . . . The Hawks made the Bucks without Bogut look good, and they got KILLED by the Magic.

    I still believe that's a tall order with the current squad. I suppose it is possible, but I wouldn't get too excited about that just yet. How about we make the playoffs first? LOL. I just want to get in!

    I know the Knicks are going to fight to get into the playoffs, and that is just the realistic outlook. The Hawks look good on paper and should be a top 6 team, but I just don't think they are going to be nearly as good they were last season even if they have all their pieces back. And they have a HUGE void at PG. The Knicks were able to beat them 3 times last year during the season with a mimimally operational team. They were also able to win A LOT of close games. I think we match up well against the Hawks. I think we will win 10 more games compared to last year's record at the very least. We can, at best, reach the 45-win mark. If this is achieved, then we can overtake the Hawks for sure. I don't think they are winning 53 games this year, or even close to that. Just my 2 cents. I don't think I am overly excited or anything like that.

    Here is to the Knicks' future - not only this year, but the upcoming years.

    I'd be really excited if we make the playoffs. As with every year it all goes on how the other teams do and who has the least injuries. If we stay injury free we have as good a chance as a lot of other teams, but no lock

    I think Charlotte could still make the playoffs. Cleveland? Not a chance.

    Cleveland has no chance in hell of making the playoffs. Antawn Jamison as your best player? Seriously? That team isn't going anywhere.

    LOCKS for the playoffs:

    Heat
    Magic
    Bulls
    Celtics

    MOST LIKELY in the playoffs:

    Bucks
    Hawks

    IN THE RACE:

    Knicks
    76ers (pending Evan Turner, though I doubt it)
    Pacers (if healthy Danny Granger)
    Wizards (pending John Wall + Gilbert for a full season, who knows?)

    NO CHANCE IN HELL:
    Cleveland (I feel sorry for these guys, I really do)
    Toronto (didn't make the playoffs last year with Bosh, doubt they make it now)
    Nets (haven't really added anyone other than Favors, and they've got a long ways to improve from 12 wins)
    Pistons (amazing how far they've fallen - haven't added anyone new who's really all that spectacular)
    Bobcats (no center, stronger East, no Felton)

    Yeah, it's up for grabs in the East. Those last two spots are going to be tough - even some of the teams I claim have no chance in hell are probably going to make a run for it

    I agree with 97% of your post

    The 3% is Chicago being a lock for sure.....on paper you're right they are very solid and it would be a big suprise if they did not make the playoffs....but consider they have not just a new coach....but a rookie head coach! A few years ago The Sixers made the playoffs added Elton Brand and became in a lot of people's mind a team who could win the East, and while Brand's injuries is why they never met that goal, but the fact is the team didnt make the playoffs at all that year.

    Again, I would be pretty suprised if the Bulls didnt make it, but it would not be the same shock if the Celtics,Heat or Orlando didnt make it.

    Make the playoffs and it's mission accomplished and then we continue to build from there.

    I'm not sleeping on the Raps this year as I don't think losing the overrated Bosh is as bad as people think.

    Anthony Morrow
    Terrance Willams
    Derrick Favors
    Brooke Lopez

    If those guys stay healthy, they may be the surprise team in the east.

    ^ agreed. they lacked leadership last year. Frank didnt have the respect of the players. now they have Johnson and he's a players coach, they should be better i expect them to battle for the playoffs 8th seed. and within the next 2-3 years they will be our top competition in the atlantic.

    Not a chance. Look, this is a team that finished dead-last in basketball as far as record. Yes, quietly they've had a decent off-season, but nothing special. All of a sudden that means they're the "surprise team in the east?" Not buying that for a second.

    I mean...that's assuming Favors even starts.

    Honestly I can't see the Nets winning more than 20 games. They haven't improved nearly enough pieces to let me think that they're capable of that.
