All the commentators agree on one point. Carmelo Anthony is key, the star player for the Knicks and the focus of the Knicks campaign to reach the playoffs, and lets hope he continues to be injury free.
There is also a lot of praise for coach Mike Woodson generally and for his good hiring decisions with some criticism of his substitution patterns and use of some players.
After that commentators diverge about who else in the team can be relied upon and who can’t.
Take Tyson Chandler. Some say he’s not shouldering the load, others that he’s enjoying a great season.
And everyone is waiting for the Melo/Stoudemire combination to fire. There is broad agreement that while the lineup is older by comparison with most other teams, it gives a ‘veterans’ edge of experience to the team.
The The Bleacher Report says bluntly, they should make the playoffs but can they beat the Miami Heat? Come on Knicks make us proud. LIKE the Knicks.
