After a dreadful opening to the season where the Knicks found themselves seven games under 500., their savior, Jeremy Lin, has completely turned this team around and now has them 17-18 entering the All-Star break.
When Lin first took over the starting role, the Knicks were a depleted team with stars Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire both on the sidelines.
Now, the Knicks are back at full strength, with even more firepower than they had before.
Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire are both back in the starting lineup. Baron Davis has come back from his injury and looks like he will be an effective back up for Lin. They even brought in the very talented J.R. Smith, who has the ability to score in bunches at any point during the game.
The Knicks are one of the most talented teams in the NBA. They have all the tools to make a championship run, but could be hampered from their lack of experience playing together and knowledge of each other’s game.
Here are five bold predictions for the New York Knicks after the All-Star break.
