Last time we saw the Knicks, they were getting knocked out in the first round of the playoffs for the second year in a row. Now they'll be looking to improve on that and advance past at least the second round in 2012-13.
In order for that to happen, though, a lot of work will need to be done in training camp. The Knicks need to iron out the chemistry issues that have dogged them for so long and to integrate the many players who have been brought in over the summer.
The Knicks are a talented team, and if all goes according to plan in camp, they should be right up there with the elite teams of the league by the end of the season.
As a preview of where the Knicks stand heading into camp, I'm going to grade them at every position based on how the roster looks right now.
