Next year is a definite no

Year after, probably

If we're a lottery team with Year 4 KP, something went wrong

Nothing went wrong. Reality will simply catch up to perception.

The actual answer to this question is up in the air. Depends on who's here and how the team meshes. If fans are looking for Jesus in the form of KP they will be highly disappointed. He, like Melo can't turn water into wine. You need a team full of good players with a solid system, a few great players or a GOAT player to make the playoffs.

next year the 18-19 season. we have one of the worst starting point guards in the league again. actually sessions probably is the worst starting PG. if we get a legit starting PG in a melo trade and KP makes that superstar jump this year then its possible we can sneak in.

Lots of ifs

If KP takes his game to the next level

If THJ has really matured and ready to fulfill his potential

If Billy can be effective as s starter

If Noah can give us 15 to 20 solid minutes a game

If Melo is here next season and is willing to let this be KP's team

If Frank can be an immediate contributor, even if it's off the bench for the whole season

If Horn DEMANDS effort on bothe ends of the floor and implements a cohesive defensive and offensive scheme at both ends that take advantage of our strengths a minimizes our weaknesses

We can make the playoffs this season.

Too early to say with the Melo issue pending. If he is traded will the trade favor the Knicks as it should? If he stays is he a good soldier? The situation is just too blurry and convoluted, kind of like Melo's career.

Melo: be a great 6th man or be DBDM [deadbeat Dad Melo] (thanks blueNorange)-- Knicks move forward either way. Tatum and Monk will disappoint.

19-20. KP probably becomes a beast yr 4, but the team still isn't good enough. Yr 5, we should hopefully have a team that he could at least drag to the 6 seed

With as bad as the East is, it could be sooner than we think. Here is to hoping we get a top 5 pick next year, and a top 10 the year after and make the playoffs from 2020 moving forward as a top 2 seed for years to come.

Knicks are going to get the 1st overall this year and MPJ is going to be the final piece. Nitlikina will be in year 2 , KP will be an allstar Willy will be a double double machine, THJ will be bombing 3s.

Ask again in 3 or 4 years. We're a long way away. And that's fine. I actually want us to take a few years to draft high in the lottery. I'm using the Noah contract as a time line. It's a great excuse to stink it up and stay away from any glamorous trades or signings. Take your time.

I think 19-20 but it could be longer. A lot hinges on how good Frank is and who we are able to acquire this coming year.

In 2 years. Ntilikina/Hardaway/Porter Jr./KP/Willy and a stacked bench.

i put next year. with the cap bubble coming back down to earth, i think grabbing a FA won't be so far fetched. melo will hopefully be traded by then. realistically, i'd say 2020-2021 should be the first year. but i think a lot of east teams are going to be worse next year, making it easier to sneak into the PO.

i assume lebron will be leaving cleveland. and they'll lose kyrie in the process. with chicago disbanded, i don't see too many for sure PO teams in the east.

Yes
boston - PO
toronto - PO, if they keep that core together; if not, they'll be up in the air
milwaukee - PO
washington - unless they shake things up, or injuries to major pieces.

maybe
philly - not sure they'll have their act together
ind - doubt turner and oladipo can lead that team to PO, but you never know. without george, that team is not really PO bound, despite awful judging from BAT
det - bradley makes them more interesting. nice core.
MIA - with winslow back, they have a decent core. almost made it last year, and the east is weak
CHA - don't know how they didn't make it last year. i doubt dwight will make it more than 2 months before he turns into a baby, but who knows. kemba has proved he can take control.

miracles
brooklyn - lol
atlanta - rebuilding, and schroder needs to be the second fiddle - like he was on my BAT team, which was easily constructed to make the PO.
cleveland - worse off than knicks soon
chi - butler gone, wade done. no way.
orlando - a mess, but who knows. could be a maybe.


i put the knicks in the maybe category. towards the bottom of the maybes, though
