I love how everyone is ready to hand the playoffs over them AGAIN this year.
They still play in the WC and they're still at the bottom of their division.
truth. i don't think the addition of nelson will bring them to the playoffs.
i mean... baron might be very talented, but he's just a west coast version of stephon marbury imo... AND he's injury prone. and PG's who consistently chuck and ruin the development of the youth around them don't do as well as people believe they will.
And the Knicks have more "talent" than all three. What are you predicting for them big guy? 50 wins?
What do the Knicks have to do with this? Have you missed the last 10 years of Don Nelson's coaching career? He is incredible with utilizing talent on a team. He is the coach that can get any team with decent talent to get clicking on offense and playing together. Idiotic to compare him to Isiah.
A more proper comparison would be a West Coast verison of the Toronto Raptors.
i agree, but only if we're talking of raptor teams of recent years and not this season. look for the raps team D to be much improved this year (wouldn't take much) and for us to be a very cohesive unit as well.
More talent than the Lakers? Don`t go that far. Are you taking account that B-davis is always injured? Kobe`s ppg can fill up 3 of their starters ppg.
what do baron's injuries have to do with his undeniable talent? and i'm sure if i picked the worst three starters on any team i could come up with a handful of players who outscore all three of them combined.
