The Miami Heat may have too much talent for the Knicks to overcome—this season.
Next summer, everyone's eyes will be on Chris Paul and Deron Williams, who very well could be free agents. Other notable unrestricted free agents are Raymond Felton, Gerald Wallace and Steve Nash. Four excellent point guards who can help the Knicks finally get that last piece to compete for the No. 1 or 2 seed in the East.
As long as the Knicks don't do anything stupid like trade Amar'e for Paul, or try and trade for Nash this season, I think the Knicks have a very bright future. Yes, Steve Nash will be old next year, but with his experience and ability, I think he could push out one more great year, possibly two good ones.
As long as they upgrade the point guard position within the next year, there is no doubt in my mind the Knicks will be in the discussion for the NBA's best team.
