Early Predictions for NY Knicks' Starting 5 Next Season

When a team features the NBA’s leading scorer, a former Defensive Player of the Year and the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, that team is expected to do great things.

But when that team fails to rise up to expectations, changes can be swift and startling.

The New York Knicks are one such team that failed to achieve their ultimate goals, despite being armed with weapons such as Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and J.R. Smith.

The starting five was shuffled around in the playoff series against the Indiana Pacers in order to match their interior size, but prior to that, the Knicks ran a small-ball lineup that featured the following five players:

Point Guard: Raymond Felton

Shooting Guard: Jason Kidd

Small Forward: Iman Shumpert

Power Forward: Carmelo Anthony

Center: Tyson Chandler

We’re still early into free agency, but with the addition of Andrea Bargnani and departure of Jason Kidd, the Knicks’ small-ball starting lineup may have a much different (and larger) look come next season.
