After an incredible season that featured Jeremy Lin's "Linsanity", the New York Knicks seemed like a team in turmoil that finally made it over the hump.
Once they were trounced 4-1 in the first round by the Miami Heat, Knicks' fans sadly realized it was yet another season of disappointment.
The Knicks acquired future Hall of Fame point guard Jason Kidd, and several other additions, including Marcus Camby, Rasheed Wallace and Raymond Felton— all aged veterans.
One positive for Knicks' fans is the potential of Iman Shumpert, who's shown glimpses of incredible athleticism and defensive ability during his rookie season. Although he will be unavailable for some time due to his untimely knee injury last season, Shumpert could be a great piece for the Knicks down the road.
The Knicks are still a long way to go from being legit contenders, and unless Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire can finally figure out how to make their offensive games work cohesively, it might be another long season for the Knickerbockers and their fans.
