Considering how they have played through the 1st 3 games and how their head coach is absolutely awful you never know. More than likely it will still be a mid 1st rounder at best but if melo or amare gets injured u never know.

Also it is clear to any nba fan that their lack of PG production will be their achilles heel.

I was thinking that last night when Amare tweaked his ankle.

The average winning percentage of the 8th seed in the East over the past 5 years has been 47.3%. I don't see it being any better this year. Also, they were 14-13 with Melo last year.

Its too early to tell, Knicks can get hot and roll off 10 wins if they actually start playing defense.

The Grizzlies pick has gone on to the Wolves in the Motiejunas trade. It was the price offered to move up 3 spots to get him(along with Minnesota's 2nd rounder). So we don't have that anymore.

Didn't we send the Grizzliess 2013 1st to the Timberwolves in the trade to get Donatas Motiejunas?

The Knicks incredible lack of depth will likely be more apparent as the season goes on. So they probably won't be a top 4 seed in the east like many were thinking with the Chandler signing. But I have a hard time seeing them drop out of the playoffs short of a major injury. And quite frankly, I don't really care too much. If the pick is in the 15-20 range personally I'm happy. Another Morris/Patterson/Motiejunas type player I would certainly be happy with for taking on Jefferies' crappy contract 2 years ago.

With Amare and Melo in the same line up defense may never happen. There is only so much Chandler can do. And what happens when he has his typical annual injury?

Keeping my fingers crossed.

I believe that was the Phoenix 1st round pick DM acquired from the AB trade.

It'll probably be in the 21-25 range, and I am perfectly fine with that!

This draft is so deep and our staff is great at identifying talent.

Not sure if we'll keep it though, you never know with Morey he is so active on draft night. Might be able to trade up.

But at that range, there are nice players:

Austin Rivers, Meyers Leonard, LeBryan Nash, Marquis Teague, Terrence Jones, Alex Oriakhi, Mason Plumlee...

We would have only gotten Phoenix's 1st last year if they had made the playoffs. So they owe us nothing.

Not likely if D'antoni is still their head coach.

It's fun to have a team to root for to lose every night. I know if somehow the Knicks miss the playoffs I will be very nervous about those lottery balls. No top 3!
