I said the Knicks aren't the second best team in the East and apparently I'm a troll. With Andrew Bynum about to play in a couple of weeks, the Celtics, the Bulls, and Pacers in our Conference, are the Knicks really, the second best team?

A real case could be made for them as the second best team, but the threads are getting annoying.

That isn't why you're a troll lol. BUt yeah Celitcs-Knicks-Philly should be fighting for the 2 seed. Bulls healthy are prob in the convo.

Rose wont be back till jan-feb.

Nets so far do not know what the word defense is.

Indiana without DG for 3 months.

Philly got smacked by NY and no word on Bynum yet.

It will be the Knicks and Celtics fighting for the 2-3 seed.

Knicks have the most complete team of any of the contenders in the east. The Heat are lacking things like, a center, a backup center, a backup pg. big holes they have to fill with their big 3's immense talent. it works but imagine Lebron finally getting to play with a real center. it would be devastating. melo has 3 real pg's, 2 real centers and more than 2 of everything inbetween. the only thing melo doesn't have that Lebron has is Wade, which we are forced to try and recreate through the collective play of kidd, shumps, brewer and smith. i think that teams that are complete are always going to have an advantage over teams with huge holes. I still think the heat are a better team, but the Knicks can give them fit's with great mismatches.

this cant be serious? Knicks have real pgs? all they do is swing the ball around the arc and fire 3's on offense. They are miles behind the Heat. They do deserve to be talked about as a potential 2 seed right now but so does Boston, Indy (when Grangers back) and Philly when Bynums back which is suppose to be this month.

we killed your team twice in 2 nights and killed the heat..

granger won't be on the court for 3 months and bynum hasn't played at all since last year. i don't expect a major impact right away.

felton isn't a real point guard? prigioni isn't a real point guard? :laugh2: someone's bitter.

They certainly have a shot considering how weak the Eastern Conference is excluding the Heat.

I would wait until Amare comes back to see what the chemistry looks like. They've looked really good so far, but it's only been three games.

Better than swinging the ball around the arc and bricking 3's...like the Sixers do every night...

Maybe you should win a playoff series before you run your mouth. The Knicks are off to a great start but no way are they second best until they prove they can win a playoff series.

1 game in 2 years won in the playoffs does not give you a chance at being the 2nd best even with this start.

Maybe in a few months I'll eat some crow but seriously you don't have any proven winners.

not really sure what last year's team has to do with this year's team considering the entire makeup of the roster is different..

and before anyone starts arguing with me, i voted 'no'. obviously you can't see that because the OP decided to make it a private poll. i'm not a homer, but i will still argue for my team. it's ridiculous that we're 3-0 (all wins by 20+ points) and still getting bashed.

Typical clueless bum. If this is a completely different team than last year than what has past playoff experience have anything to do with how they are playing RIGHT NOW.

Hence why we are talking about regular season standings, not playoffs...

Yes. After the 3 game mark, in which we should re-evaluate all preseason predictions, its clear the Knicks are a top 2 team in the east.

I am anxious to get to game 6 evaluations.

NO New York fans get bashed because EVERY SINGLE YEAR the season starts and New York fans start with "KNICKS ARE BACK !!" it's only been 3 games I know you're excited but why don't you fools wait a few more weeks before talking wreckless like this

Right, I mean what if Charlotte goes on a three game winning streak between now and game 6...They could have an argument for 2nd best too.

Nobody hates the Knicks, The Knicks haven't done anything in decades !! I hope the Knicks succeed this season because it's great for the league. But stop with the "you homers and trolls hate the Knicks" NO WE HATE KNICK FANS BECAUSE YOU'RE THE MOST ANNOYING FANS IN THE NBA

every single year? you haven't even been on this site for a complete season. :facepalm:

i know it's only 3 games, but you can not say that you weren't impressed with all of those wins (assuming you've watched them, but i'm thinking you didn't). since you're the fool here, maybe you should know what you're talking about before you post it, or better yet, be on this site for a complete season and say ****.

Kind of like laker fans making threads about beating the bulls wins total,then losing the first three games.

I love this Knicks team. I am not calling them better than the heat. But make no mistake, they are very very deep and good.

PGs are three deep and solid defenders.

As long as Melo is the "The Man", they will never win a championship. Melo is not that type of superstar that will lead a team to a NBA title. On a good year, Melo will have NY in the mix. But far as going to the finals and winning? Please, keep dreaming.

That sound so dumb one man does not win a championship the team does and with this mix of vets and young guys if the knicks keep doing what they are doing they have a very solid chance to win it all
