...that the Knicks are still, for the most part, an unfamiliar hodgepodge of youngsters and castoff Nuggets. Beginning with Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony and continuing right on down the depth chart, there's a major need for chemistry. That, one would hope, is just a matter of time, but without a natural offseason to mesh, the Knicks could open the season (whenever that is) looking a little disjointed. The team has major strengths, though. Their offense, one of the league's best last season, should only get crisper and more efficient with time to steep as a unit.
The Knicks on paper are a great fantasy squad, but they aren't yet a "great" team.
