    I know this has nothing to do with the blazers at all, but I wanted to hear your opinions on who will be the better team. I think to start, Brooklyn will get way more hype then the knicks, which  could be a good thing for the knicks. Who will finish with the better record?

    Knicks projected lineup:

    PG- Raymond Felton/ Jason Kidd

    SG- JR Smith

    SF- Carmelo Anthony

    PF- Amare Stoudemire

    C- Tyson Chandler

    Nets projected Lineup:

    PG- Deron Williams

    SG- Joe Johnson

    SF- Gerald Wallace

    PF- Kris Humphries

    C- Brook Lopez

    The Knicks really screwed up this offseason. They had a potential gem in Jeremy Lin and let him go for 40-something Jason Kidd and Raymond Felton. Not only was Lin talented but he was unselfish and could have actually made it work with STAT & Melo. Throw in JR Smith coming back and I could see this Knicks team being the most volatile during this upcoming season.

    The Nets are clearly better. They have a very good bench, with Brooks, Watson, Evans, Teletovic, and Bogans. 
    I like the Knicks addition of Camby and Thomas but their bench is still pretty shallow. 

    As far as Lin goes he is clearly overrated he can only dribble one direction and because of that turns the ball over a million times.

    Isn't Camby also in NY?

    I hadn't noticed it before but looking at the Knicks roster makes me laugh, not cuz I think they'll be THAT bad but because it really represents the New York personality; almost every player from top to bottom has that attitude about themselves that's a blend of over-confidence/old-school baller/"i'll f*k you up if you mess with me"-type mentalities. I bet their locker room convos are just chains of one-upping each other :P

    I think the Nets will finish better than the Knicks (not sayin much), but that being said, I'm betting the Nets are going to be a VERY streaky team.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
