I am not a team fan but rather a player fan, when D. Rose was traded to Knicks, I eventually switch my attention to this team. But want to know, for you guys what are the chances of this team in the upcoming season? Me? I see them in the playoffs and a contender to Cleveland Cavaliers...

Derrick Rose is a great player, barring injuries to him in his Knicks stint. With the guys around him, I think that this year will be a statement year for him and the team in general. Carmelo is sure to give his best. Porzingis will be better than last year, and Joakim Noah will be there to provide the emotion, the intensity and the hustle they need. Add to their team good pieces from the free agency and additional rookies. I agree that they will be a playoff contender. It's up to them to develop teamwork and chemistry as they play along each other. The most important is for each of the players to play unselfish basketball. If they do, they're a great team to watch this coming season.

I agree with your assessment. They will be much improved if healthy and then possibly better than Toronto.

Absolutely right, thats why its a process and to see along the way of they have chemistry and have what it takes to be a finals contender. Otherwise, it's just easy to say because they have great players but they need to prove it though...

I don't think the Knicks have a chance at beating the Cavaliers this season. Barring any injuries to Lebron James, Kyrie Irving, or even Kevin Love, the Cavs will defeat the Knicks 9 out of 10 times that they meet. The New York Knicks ain't no superteam even if DRose thinks so.

Cleveland is really a hard team to beat. But let's see, it just depends on the preparation of each team on how they become ready in the next season. :)

The Knicks will be improved and make the playoffs but not as good as the Cavs.

Could be, they are still in the process but I know they will give the Eastern Conference the challenge it is longing for :)
