As we speak the NY Knicks are currently engaged in a heated battle with the Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

While there’s still a ways to go if the Knicks want to exit this series alive, there are still undoubtedly plenty of scenarios going through the heads of fans as they try to calculate how the orange and blue can come out of this NBA champions.

Can the NY Knicks still carve themselves a path to the NBA Finals?

Others might be looking to make trades for the future already but I’m of the belief that the Knicks can turn it around.

While this Knicks roster is super talented and has lots of players that can match up with the best and put up a fight, it’ll be a little while before we start considering this team a serious contender.

The focus definitely still needs to be on the Hawks right now as they’re a tough team but definitely beatable in this seven-game series.

Despite that, I thought it would be fun to give you guys three aspects of today’s Knicks team that need to be perfected in order for them to have a chance at winning the NBA finals in 2021.
