news now, is that JR Smith will be re-signing with the Knicks....

if that is the case, all they need to do is convince Prigioni to stay in the NBA, and they will have made a clean sweep...

the Trade for Bargnani jettisoned two worthless players and a dumb contract ( Novak ) for a guy that averages 15 per game in his career....

the draft pick of Hardaway Jr. was the smartest and best they have made in years and also, the first time in years they weren't booed at the draft! LOL....

So, in spite of what the Nets have done, the Knicks are positioning themselves to be every bit the same or even a tad better team than last year.....

I don't know John. Shumpert was a pretty good pick and based on the end of last year could be an emerging force.

On the other hand, bargianni is a 7fter, who averages 15/game when healthy, doesn't rebound, isn't very mobile, and doesn't play a lot of defense. Ill give you that he can shoot and has a more well rounded offensive game.

But, now Woodson has
-Melo who plays defense at times.
- Stat who is learning to play defense coming off injuries.
-Bargiani no defense
-Hardaway Jr who plays some defense when motivated (and at times has som questionable shot selection)
And,
-Smith. Erratic.

Not sure how much better we are with this group. Hopefully as good as last year.

Heatles will be the same.

Nets got better.

Pacers got better with Granger and experience.


Bulls will be better with rerun of Rose.


Figure Knicks could land anywhere from 3rd to last playoff seed.

Knicks just resigned JR and Priggs and looking at Nate Robinson or Brooks.
The Knicks run a rotation defense .the problem last year was finding guys who could score consistently besides Melo. The Nets have no one who can stop Melo he made Pierce and garnett look old last year in the playoffs. The Knicks had old guys coming off the bench and they got hurt the nets have them starting. Indiana and Knicks are not so far apart if Smith and kidd did not suck and Chandler was not hurt it would of been a different story in playoffs. Every position on the Knicks has a great starter and a great backup.

The Knicks now have two starting fives, almost like in Hockey with different lines....

still lots of movement going on in the NBA, one of the busiest off seasons ever...

Knicks have also looked into Elton Brand, which would be a Martin substitute....

Close your eyes and imagine that Champ. Series and ask your self Could the Knicks have played and that level ? If your going to build around MeOnly then you need the Best " D " players in the NBA cause he don't . He can MeOnly run from the top of the key @ both ends Lol
