New York Knicks Team Analysis

The Knicks are one of the most questionable teams in the NBA, when referring to them many questions arise. Will the Knicks make the playoffs? Will the Knicks get a huge free agent? Will the Knicks ever win a title?

Lets take a look at the first question

The Knicks will not make the playoffs for one reason only, they refuse to play defense. They are an above average offensive team with many scorers such as Chandler, Amare, and Felton. They may be above average but they are certainly not the best in the league. The Knicks rely on three point shooting more than they should with almost every player on the team attempting 3s, even Amare. They should focus more on driving and let 3 point specialists such as Gallinari attempt shots from long range. If they do this, they will almost certainly make the playoffs.

The Knicks probably will get a huge free agent eventually. New York is one of the most saught after places to play in the NBA and many free agents would like to go there. If the Knicks don’t get Carmello, there is always Chris Paul or some other big name who’d love to play in NY.

The Knicks will never win a championship regardless of who they pick up, unless they get a new coach or hire a defensive specialist. There’s a reason that D’Antoni never won a championship with the Suns (a better offensive team than the Knicks). He completely disregards defense. Well if the Knicks ever get shut down offensively, a huge blowout will come there way. Unless major changes are made in their style of play, they will never win a championship.
