WNR4HL is doing a pre-season divisional breakdown. Read it. Here is an excerpt of the NY Knickerbocker:

New York Knicks  (32-50, 5th in the Atlantic)

Offseason Moves:

– Drafted Jordan Hill out of Arizona
– Lost Quentin Richardson.
– Gained THE Darko Millic

Why they might be good:

The Mike D’Antoni “Seven seconds or less” offense might actually work out. I mean, it didn’t work out too well last season, but you all know what they say about Team Chemistry. Al Harrington is a pretty good player. Wilson Chandler has got some upside. David Lee is still David Lee, a really good rebounder and solid block scorer. Nate Robinson was great at the 6th man role. The Knicks could bring it together.

Why the might not be good:

Seven seconds of mess. Jordan Hill makes too many mistakes in Summer League. Larry Hughes still takesbadshots. Darko Millic is still Darko Millic. This team doesn’t look cohesive enough to make a playoff push. While everyone in the Atlantic aside from the Nets gained weapons or systems, the Knicks decided to wait it out for the “Lebron James 2010 sweepstakes”. Expect bad, Knicks fans.

Players to watch:

Nate Robinson. He’s got a forked road ahead of him. On the left, there’s the CYP.He most likely is gonna sign a one year deal with the Knicks, making him a FA for 2010. If he decides to make most of this year to get a good contract for next year, here’s his chance. On the right, its the “trade me please” road. Because he’s got a one year deal, that’s trade bait. Teams that want cap space would SALIVATE to gain Nate Robinson. The Knicks could get the news Lebron is gonna resign with the Cavs, decide to get…um…I dunno…Carlos Boozer, and use Nate as a trade chip. Otherwise, look for Nate to either suck badly, or put up career numbers.

Prediction:

29-53, 4th in Atlantic.
