Last year due to the lockout, the season was shortened, meaning that Anthony and the Knicks needed to hit the ground running with almost no room for error.
The Knicks were able to finish seventh in the Eastern Conference last season and won their first playoff game in 11 years.
Winning only one playoff game for the Knicks is still a failed season though.
Since acquiring Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony over the past couple of years, the Knicks should be setting higher goals than one playoff win.
Now that Anthony is accustomed to the team, not only will he have a great season, but also the Knicks will improve from last year's first round exit in the playoffs.
