The New York Knicks have had an up and down season. There seemed to be hope with the arrival of Lin to the starting lineup. Suddenly, the Knicks were able to beat the sub-.500 basketball teams and at least keep up with the best of the best. Now that Lin is in peril of missing the rest of the season, it is up to Carmelo and Amare Stoudemire (last year's hopes) to ensure the franchise has not merely been leading the Knicks fans down the rabbit hole.
This is the NBA though, and even the struggling teams are able to beat an injury-ridden contender. New York would be trying to catch the Philadelphia 76ers and the Atlanta Hawks if they were healthy, but now they are simply trying to hold off the Milwaukee Bucks. If Mike Woodson can continue to get this roster to play defense then the Knick playoff hopes are realistic. Luckily, center Tyson Chandler is the man in the middle. Chandler was the key cog in the Mavericks championship machine and he can once again play much bigger than his numbers, becoming a hero in the Big Apple. Meanwhile, Anthony needs to up his scoring from 20 points to 30 points.
There is still time for J.R. Smith to make his midseason signing well worth it. Smith has not been the sparkplug he has been promised to be. Landry Fields has not even lived up to his lofty expectations, so it appears the Knicks are going to hope Baron Davis is able to revive a style of play he has not been able to reproduce this season. If anything, the Knicks need for more scoring should play into Davis's preferred style and could lead to anything five or six-game winning streak.
The New York Knicks may play in the Mecca of Basketball, but the franchise has been trying to live up to the expectations of those faithful basketball fans that enter the venue for quite some time. The Knicks first took the court in 1946 and have won a total of two NBA championships, eight conference titles, and four division titles. Those championships came in 1970 and 1973, with a roster stacked with Walt Frazier, Dave DeBusschere, Jerry Lucas, and Earl "The Pearl" Monroe. The Knicks tried to add a few more championships by building a basketball team around center Patrick Ewing. The franchise continually made playoff tickets available, but was habitually thwarted early on since they played in the age of dynasties. TheSeats has the Knicks tickets for the new season schedule.
