Knicks Us vs Them: The New York Knicks

With Bargnani on their team now, things already have the potential to be shaky. Combine that with an aging Amare and Tyson, injured JR Smith, the craziness that is Metta World Peace and Melo saying he wants to test FA.... you could have some serious turmoil on this team if things go right.

Do we have a shot at finishing higher than the New York Knicks?

Maybe.

I put zero thought into this. I just want it to be so, see the possibility, and will not look any further. It's the Knicks.

Shooting? Knicks
Defense? Knicks
Rebounding? Knicks
Passing? Knicks
Bench? Knicks by far
Not to mention we may have the worst head coach in the league.

This isn't a debate. If this poll is even close the amount of homerism on this forum is too damn high and the results of all future polls are invalid.

And melo said "he doesn't want to go anywhere" fyi.

Oh no! All future polls could become invalid? How would we choose the leader of our future dystopia?

Screw objectivity. It's way too much fun imagining a season where the Knicks shit the bed.

Screw that not being at least a little objective as well. It's the Knicks!

The Knicks historically to me = tough underdogs, generally knowledgeable and loyal fans, great game atmosphere. To me, they've always been the most likable big market team, or the only likable big market team even.

Chicago is way more likeable to me. I consider them to be a big market team.

Even with the Knicks likely facing a down year with a ton of injuries and disappointment, they'll still be better than us.

We beat them once last week. As long as we have Big Quincy Acy we'll be better

Listen, the Knicks are like the wannabe Lakers of the East Coast right now. They hired a bunch of thuggy players, they try and thug it up and play thug ball. But their problem is most their thuggy players are complete posers. NY fans all of a sudden want to jump on the gangsta train and ride these Knicks to a championship. But with Knicks fans covering their team pride with a wannabe thug life image, it's going to wreck their team spirit. And I wouldn't be surprised if their spirit runs out quickly if losses pile up. We may even see foam fingers or Knicks beanie baby's get chucked on the court after a bad night.

The best thing the Knicks have going for them is the Nets. Mega-ego war in Manhattan.
