It makes for a much better playoffs with the Knicks as the top seed instead of the Heat IMO.

Game 6 or 7 with Lebron in the Garden is a different level of epic, especially considering how hungry Knicks fans are/have been for a Champion

Knicks wont win it this year, they are just on a hot start.

most don't know how loud the garden can be, and they don't need piped in cheers or the PA to get the crowd going

Knicks went 18-6 to finish off last season with Woodson. Yup, clearly a hot streak. :lol:

You got stomped in the playoffs, that is the only streak that matters.

The depleted Knicks won just as many games against the heat in the playoffs as a healthy thunder team. This even after a controversial game 1 where many feel the refs played a huge part in the heat victory. But it doesn't matter anymore, Knicks got a better team now, LeBron doesn't have a chip on his shoulder anymore and the flopping rules have eliminated the acting and flopping that they used to steal games. It will not be easy for them to repeat, that's for sure.

Yeah, we certainly have that EXACT same team that got stomped in the playoffs. :lol:

Celtic fans are the most hilarious on the GB.

I still find it funny when people bring up last year's playoff series against the Heat as proof the Knicks have no shot against them.

Do you remember their rotation in that particular series?

Lol, don't even bother. Reading some of the posts from certain people in this thread, it's like talking to a brick wall.

It's the only thing they can hang on to at this point. It's sad but funny at the same time.

Not only that, last year's team still deployed the failed Amare-Carmelo tandem.

Now, it's likely Amare and Carmelo will share very little court time together and thus the team will be improved.

where do you guys come up with this stuff

1st 4-0 was too early

then 6-0 was too early

the Heat let us win by 20, twice :o

cant keep hitting open 3's

Melo's going to slow down its a given he will slow down while other stars will only get better :lol:

you guys need to give it a rest its not 2005 anymore, the Heat are not as dangerous as they were last year why cant you guys just accept that they wont cake walk to the Finals, its a new day wake up and smell the Garden

You guys won because of circumstances, the hurricane and then just an off night.

I think 99% of Basketball fans would be shocked if the Knicks pushed the Heat to 7 games. The Knicks are just not on the Heat's level at the moment. its a long season and the Knicks will cool down.

Knick fans are the one's who are hilarious in this thread. Acting all accomplished because you have a good record 20 games into the regular season. But I guess this is all you have to brag about considering your team hasn't had any form of success (regular season or Playoffs) whatsoever in over a decade.

Exactly. This team at full strength with Amar'e - presumably with an effective niche - and Shumpert to augment the perimeter defense will be scary. I think a match up with Miami is almost inevitable in the playoffs, and it'll be a much more interesting series than the last one.

I completely disagree, especially with the bolded part. I've observed more and more non-Knick fans becoming cognizant of their apparent relevance and talent. The Knicks' roster - as constructed - is seriously deep and armed with a defensive anchor, a marquee scorer who is applying himself defensively, savvy veterans, and shooters. Throw in the fact that they are presently without their second best scorer and rebounder as well as their best perimeter defender and yet more than holding their own with a 16-5 record... come on now, hard to deny that this team is for real. Definitely has the make up of a team that can go far in the postseason, which is something we haven't been able to say about NYK in a long, long time.

Miami has the best player in the world - no doubt - but I'd caution you not to dismiss the Knicks so flippantly. Torrid shooting doesn't necessarily last but the way they take care of the ball and force turnovers indicates a well-coached, disciplined squad.
