The second month of the NBA season has come and gone, and for the New York Knicks, it was a similar conclusion as November. The Knickerbockers sit atop the Atlantic Division with a 21-9 record, and they're sitting pretty with the NBA's elite—currently ranked sixth in terms of best records.
Of course, Carmelo Anthony has had an incredible December, but there are also guys like Jason Kidd and J.R. Smith that contributed heavily to the team and getting them to where they are, especially with the surplus of injuries that have been dealt to New York.
Both Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd have been the floor generals this season, and they've done an incredible job. Not to mention, Tyson Chandler's defense and new-found offense has New York looking like a force that can compete with Eastern powerhouses, specifically last year's champion Miami Heat.
With December in the books though, can New York's players continue playing at a high level?
