Take a look at last year's Knicks thread and that'll explain why I didn't bother starting one again this year.
I am excited to watch them for the first time in quite some time, due to their potential. I'll give them that. However, there are far too many "If's" with this team for me to feel confident in them being a top tier, 50-55 win Eastern Conference team.
Obviously, injuries are the biggest concern, with the history of Rose, Noah, and Jennings. And I don't see them having the depth to sustain multiple, simultaneous injuries for any long period of time. They have a brand new coach (whom I like and I support the hire), but that's still a question mark. Does KP progress or does he go through a bit of a sophomore slump with his now very different supporting cast? If they catch a lot of breaks and make it through the season relatively unscathed by injuries, I'd say 50 wins is a possibility. Not likely, in my opinion, but a possibility.
My prediction is 44 wins, which I still think is on the optimistic side. 7th/8th seed.
