In response to franquazi's comment:
Why? Because the Knicks failed to improve in this past offseason..You can tell celtics are gonna be far worse than last year but I'm going to be very optimistic..oh yeah!! The knicks brought Andrei Bargnani from Toronto and Metta World Peace from the lakers..Did somebody is excited?? The Bargnani trade doesn't made the knicks better because this guy to be effective needs the ball on his hand clashing with Carmelo right from the start. Also Bargnani is not a defensive player. The knicks look a very slow team on paper. The Metta World signing could be productive or really painfully. They already got Kmart for the dirty game. It seems that knicks management needs some changes in order to obtain team success. On the other hand celtics are young and exciting!! We have four starters coming back: Rondo, Bradley, Green and Sullinger. Olynyk will be running for the rookie of the year and Coach Stevens will surprise a lot of people around the league. Our bench is solid with Wallace, Bass, Humphries, Faverani, Brooks and Lee. Rookie Pressey will fit right away too.
Felton- is on his prime / Rondo- on his prime
Shumpert- still needs to prove that can score consistanly / Bradley- same that Shumpert
Anthony- is on his prime / Green- on his prime
Bargnani- best years are in the past. / Olynyk- a lot of potential!!
Chandler- still productive when is around good players / Sullinger- is gonna be a solid player if healthy.
Stoudamire- is on his way down / Faverani- good offensive game. Could jump to the starting lineup.
Martin-is on his way down / Bass- young and prove veteran, nice jumper.
Metta - is on his way down / Wallace- still young at 31. Brings energy, defense, and leadership
Smith- on his prime but problematic / Brooks- can score in this league and is young.
Prigioni- is on his way down / Preesey- a natural point guard with good passing skills.
You are on Ibogaine...look it up...
Young and drug addled is no way to grow up son....
