The New York Knicks in 2013-14
The New York Knicks fared well last season, earning the two seed in the Eastern
Conference Playoffs, so they didn't shake things up too much in the offseason. That may have been a mistake, as the Knicks
have struggled in 2013-14. Star player Carmelo Anthony is having one of his best seasons, but the team around him has had
a hard time supporting him. Some people think Melo may not be the kind of player to build a championship team around, but
he's done nothing to suggest that this season with his stellar play. The team saw Tyson Chandler miss significant time due
to injury, which hurt the New York defense quite a bit. But it's been on the offensive end of the court that the team has
really seen a let down from last season.
JR Smith is not following up his Sixth Man of the Year season with a great
year, and New York is sorely missing his offensive production. The team has seen solid limited minutes from Amare Stoudemire,
but he isn't in the kind of physical condition that can allow him to play big minutes. Offseason acquisition Andrea Bargnani
has had some bright moments, but it appears that he has hit his ceiling as a pro player. The Knicks have a shot to make the
playoffs if they play well down the stretch, but they'll have to have a big turnaround to pull it off. If they can, make sure
to hit Madison Square Garden to see a playoff game.

New York Knicks Trivia
Where did New York Knicks
star Carmelo get selected in the NBA Draft?
The answer is the third pick in the 2003 NBA Draft. The 2003 draft was one
of the best drafts in recent memory. While Melo went third to the Denver Nuggets, the Cleveland Cavaliers selected LeBron
James with the first pick, the Miami Heat selected Dwyane Wade with the fifth pick and the Toronto Raptors selected Chris
Bosh with the fourth pick. The other player selected in the Top 5 in 2003 was Dark Milicic, who the Detroit Pistons nabbed
with the second selection. Darko had a decent NBA career from a general perspective, but did not live up to his draft position
or the bar that his fellow Top 5 mates set over the years.
