The NBA is back in action and the manhattan hicks owner who happens to be shorter than a mexican, expects his hicks to win the title this year

Originally posted by Inactive User
NEW YORK -- Not many pundits believe the New York Knicks can win the NBA title this season.

But team owner and Madison Square Garden executive chairman James Dolan expects them to do so.

In a recent meeting with the coaching staff and some team executives, Dolan said he believes the Knicks have enough talent to win a title and that he expects them to do so this season, league sources with knowledge of the owner's message during the meeting confirmed.


Our expert panel predicts the win-loss records for all 30 teams. East | West

"He told them he believes they have enough talent to win it all," one source said, "and he expects it to happen this year."

The Knicks won 54 games last season, finished in second place in the Eastern Conference and won a playoff series for the first time in 13 years.

But many teams in the upper crust of the conference improved in the offseason.

The Chicago Bulls have 2010-11 league MVP Derrick Rose back after he missed last season following ACL surgery. The Brooklyn Nets added veteransPaul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to a deep roster, and the Indiana Pacers -- who defeated the Knicks in the second round of the playoffs -- added Luis Scola and expect to have forward Danny Granger back.

Due largely to salary-cap restrictions, the Knicks had a quiet offseason relative to those teams. They added 7-foot sharpshooter Andrea Bargnani, re-signed reigning Sixth Man Award winner J.R. Smith and signed free agents Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih.

Based on those offseason moves, many NBA pundits predict that the Knicks will finish no higher than fifth in the East.

That's why, according to sources, Dolan's expectations left some staffers in the meeting with an uneasy feeling.

"A few people were a bit surprised, taken aback. But he's the owner. He has a right to expect it," one source said.

For what it's worth, Knicks coach Mike Woodson has said several times that he thinks the Knicks have enough talent to compete for a title. But Dolan's expectation could put additional pressure on the coach, the players and team executives this season.

An added layer to Dolan's title expectation is that the owner wanted to employ younger players at the end of the roster.

According to sources with knowledge of the team's thinking, Dolan directed the front office to keep younger players with the final roster spots so that they can develop within the organization.

Some members of the team's hierarchy had hoped to keep veteran players in the last three roster spots, particularly if the expectation is for the Knicks to win now.

Ultimately, New York kept three training camp invitees on the 15-man roster: 23-year-old guard Toure' Murry, 26-year-old guard Chris Smith, the younger brother of J.R. Smith, and 24-year-old center Cole Aldrich. They cut 30-year-old veteran forwards Ike Diogu and Josh Powell.

the biggest disappointment in nba history, parsons goes up for a shot and the refs call a foul on ny for no reason. yet this perfect shot goes in and the refs fail to overlook the first swipe

I want Jabari Parker aka Kendrick Lamar on my team so bad, bruh's. I think he's gonna be the best NBA player to come out of this batch of prospects. Andrew Wiggins aka Tyler the Creator is athletic as fuck but is no where near as polished on the offensive end as Parker is right now. The elite scorer and overall better ball player in the next level will be Parker. Wiggins will be more of an elite defender.

I don't ever want a Knicks fan to try and act superior to the Nuggets (ze pequeno). The only thing they've done better in the last 10 years is get to the second round of the playoffs last year. Even with Ty Lawson, Chandler, and Faried being our only notable players, we're still playing above 500. But the Knicks lmao, hows a state with half the NBA's all-stars suck so much ass?

^Very likely, they're definitely giving the Heat a run for their money. But my bet is still on a team from the western conference tbh.

My Lakers tho... smh

John Wall and Ty Lawson should both be in the All Stars

Jan 21, 2014 @ 19:14
I don't think Ty should get the nod over CP3, Curry, Harden or Damian. (Or Westbrook if he wasn't injured). With how good the West's forwards are I don't think they should have more than 4 guards. If they do, I think in this season Ty should be 5th in line since Westbrook is out. He's been better than Goran, Monta, Isaiah, Bledsoe, Conley, Parker, Jrue and Klay.
