Both are currently out of the playoffs, and both are highly unlikely to win a playoff series this year. Both teams will most likely make moves before the deadline But who has a better chance right now?

The Cavs have a 0% chance... So the Knicks, I guess?

They both suck. Both would get swept 1st round. Neither

Knicks... But you should wait and see if anything happens with these teams by the trade deadline first.

If neither was an option, I'm pretty sure 90 percent of PSD would take neither. Since it's not, I'll take the Knicks by default. Somehow New York is only 2 1/2 games out of the 8th seed and six games out of 4th place for possible HCA in the first round. A lot of things have to go well for the Knicks, and they probably need to pull off a big move prior to the trade deadline. But looking at their schedule, they get a really nice stretch to start March, with 12 of 13 games against sub .500 teams. If they could make a move and take advantage of that stretch, getting a 4-6 seed and avoiding Miami or Indiana in the first round isn't outside the realm of possibility.

I just don't see Cleveland doing much of anything at this point. They're a ticking time bomb, and they're probably better served by tanking and trying to get the best possible draft pick.

Cleveland is gonna make moves to make Kyrie happy
New York is gonna make moves to make Melo happy
Both are trying to polish a turd, and all it will do is ruin their future

Knicks by default. Both are a mess. I will say this...the East is wide open after the two best teams. Knicks could pull off a trade and possibly win a series. If they would have gotten Lowry, they could have been a 3 seed.

Well said. They are addicted to splashy moves that don't move the needle. Both of those rosters make no sense. But on paper...they were enough to appease ownership to start the season. Both GM's have been replaced. The revolving door of ineptitude continues. Have to blame the owners. They always screw things up.

I don't think either make the playoffs. Gun to my head and I'm taking NYK tho.

Thing is, if either does somehow make it, I can't see how it's not as a 7 or 8 seed. We know sure as **** that neither are winning a series against Indy/Mia.

The 6th seed will probably around .500, so the Knicks would have to make up a huge deficit post All-Star Break, but it's possible if they made a deal to acquire someone like Lowry before the trade deadline. That being said, I certainly wouldn't bet on it, and I also think it's unlikely either team makes the playoffs. Chicago, Washington, Brooklyn and Charlotte are all playing good basketball right now. I could see Charlotte maybe falling off a bit and giving the Knicks some room to catch up, but even if they did, they'd get killed by Indiana in the first round.

Knicks by default, as said above. For the simple fact that come playoff time Melo has proven he will step up, at least offensively. Knicks have the better "star".

If they didn't already have amare on their team, they would try to trade for him.

Knicks, no contest, they have a top 3-4 player in the league in Melo.

Cavs won't make the playoffs. Knicks have a lottery of a chance of making it. So Knicks.

neither one has a chance. for one of them to have a chance they'd have to finish at least 6th, and that doesn't seem to be happening.

Knicks only have melo, the cavs do have young talent with Irving, waiters, TT, and vets Deng, av, and with Bennett playing so much better they could make the playoffs. Cavs are the better team right now but don't see either winning against pacers or heat. So to answer the question neither. But let's see what the deadline holds.

This seemed like a great question before the season started. Now that the 2 teams combine for probably less than 2% chance of getting out of the first round it seems pretty irrelevant. Debating this is pretty much the same as debating who's more likely to win MVP between Dirk and Tim Duncan. It just isn't gonna happen.

What? He might not even be a top 3-4 player in the Eastern Conference anymore, much less the entire league.

imma go with the cavs. they have a decent team and will probably add to it. opposing teams pump themselves up when they verse NY, so advantage to Cavs

Few teams right now are a bigger circus then the Knicks. The Cavs are one of them. For that reason I pick the Knicks(even though they are a one and done team).

I am being serious. Lebron and George are both clearly better basketball players right now, and you could make a case for a few other guys like Noah and Hibbert. Regardless, even if Melo is the third best player in the East, he's certainly not the third or fourth best guy in the league. I would put Lebron, Durant, Paul, George, Love, Curry, Harden, Davis, Griffin, Howard and maybe Dirk over him off the top of my head. And that doesn't consider guys like Westbrook, Kobe or Rose, who are out with injuries.

Knicks because I am not even sure that the Cavs can even make the playoffs.
