There's a lot of hype surrounding the New York Knicks this season, and we'll finally get our first glimpse of them at training camp.
It will be the first offseason practice time for the Knicks since Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler joined the team in 2011. Back then, depth was a major issue in New York, and there appeared to be few sure things outside the Big Three.
Of course, the season proved that things are not always as they appear. Chandler did help spearhead a defensive revival in New York, but Melo and Amar'e Stoudemire had a couple of the worst seasons in their accomplished careers. Meanwhile, the Knicks were weak off the bench, but an unheralded point guard named Jeremy Lin stepped up and provided something of a spark.
Now Lin is gone, the Big Three remain, and a new group of reinforcements are here for the 2012-13 season. Here are the five biggest storylines to follow as the Knicks try to put all the pieces together for a long-awaited run at a title.
