The biggest change to the NBA this season for me has been not having to change the channel when a Knicks game is on.
I'll be the first to admit that until this season, I was never very pumped to watch a Knicks game on television.
There was no camaraderie, no real excitement, and really no hope that they could win.
After acquiring Amare Stoudemire and Raymond Felton, something has truly clicked in New York City.
You just feel a different kind of energy watching the games this year. Felton has elevated his play to that of an elite guard this year, Amare has proven that he's more than just a flash in the pan talent, and the Knicks role players are all willing to chime in, in order to produce the much needed W.
All of this bodes well for the Knicks going into the 2011 playoffs, as most are growing confident that New York will nab a lower post season spot, and potentially upset a contender.
I, like many of the readers on this site have watched quite a few teams now in my time, and I can say without question that this Knick's squad is for real. If the key components continue to operate at their full potential, then New York has as good a chance as anyone to make waves in the post season this year.
