If you're a Knicks fan, you're probably pretty excited for the upcoming season. New York basketball is finally back, and with megastars Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire leading the way, there's no doubt that this is shaping up to be a very exciting time for New York.
Netting Paul would send shockwaves throughout the Big Apple, and would officially make the Knicks one of the most dominant forces in the East.
The best thing about this whole thing is that Paul has already made it clear that New York is one of his top destinations if he decides to leave New Orleans (which is almost 100% likely). He even hinted at the potential big 3 at Carmelo's wedding several months back.
However, even though all this seems like a lock, Paul still needs to see a few things out of this Knicks team before he makes his decision. The Knicks are still pretty rough around the edges, and if they don't start to show a little improvement, then there's no doubt that Paul will pack his bags and go somewhere else. There's plenty of options for him out there.
New York fans want it, Paul wants it. Now it's up to the Knicks to earn it.
