“The Eastern Conference has gotten better," Garnett said when asked if he thought the Celtics were the favorite. "I wouldn’t go that far and say we’re the team to beat. We have things to prove. We have to work on chemistry.”

Garnett clearly knows it will take time. So why is everyone here so sure the Celtics are the Number One seed? Everything takes time. They have to go to camp, so do the Knicks. If the Knicks work hard, We be near the top of the East.
