The New York Knicks have won a total of one playoff game in the past two seasons, and being in a city as demanding as New York, something like that is not acceptable. The Knicks have made major improvements to their roster over the years to get back to the post-season, but the front office is looking to go one step further.
The Knicks have made some nice acquisitions this summer despite the losses of Jeremy Lin and Landry Fields. New York brought back J.R. Smith and Steve Novak, while adding veteran players Jason Kidd, Raymond Felton, Pablo Prigioni, Ronnie Brewer and Marcus Camby. The locker-room is revamped and Knicks star Carmelo Anthony likes what the front office did so far this off-season, New York Post.
“I’m thrilled,’’ Anthony said. “What we were able to do with the amount of cap space we had, I’m thrilled. We’re bringing in veteran guys who have some experience. I just found out we signed [Ronnie] Brewer. We definitely made strides this season.’’
New York was a first round exit in the 2012 Playoffs, but with the talent level on this roster, there is no way the team doesn’t win at least four games in 2013. Even better, there will be a full training camp this season and with no condensed schedule, this squad will have enough time to gel and figure each other out.
