You got D. Rose, the best PG the game has seen in the past decade although he might not ever be the same due to his injury but he's still a beast. Then you got Melo and the 2nd ROTY Porzingis.

This is NBA's new big 3, so do you think they can deliver next season? I think they have a massive chance if all goes smoothly.

Don't think the Cavs can win back to back. That's what they said about Curry and GSW last season acting like they're gonna win the next 10 championships.

They may not win back to back but they'll be back in the finals again. If New York makes the playoffs next year, I'd consider that a win for them.

Win a playoff spot? Sure, like the 5th seed in the East.

I'd be happy just to see Knicks in playoffs next season. Only way for them to be a contender next season is to sign Durant.

Both are likely to happen. The big 3 might need another 2 years to fully establish their dominance though

Hope it happens. NY would have the biggest superstar starting lineup

And that's if melo decides to stay. I remember Lebron talking about a few years down the road he'd like to play with melo, Chris Paul, and d wade. Clearly they'd all take payouts. But they just want to play on the same team. I could see this happening before the Knicks really find enough pieces to win.

PGs in the last decade better than Rose:

Westbrook
Wall
Curry
Lilliard
Nash
Paul
Kidd

Lmao, Rose was untouchable in his prime, too bad he got injured. Only PGs that are on his level are AI and Magic.

MVP at 22, that's unprecedented. Had his career gone smoothly he'd have at least a ring or 2 by now.

It wouldn't surprise me if the Knicks miss the playoffs, even in the east, srs.

Derrick Rose is just another guy at this point in his career. His explosiveness is no longer special, that's just the cold hard truth.

The Knicks have 1 good player and he still has to prove his rookie season wasn't a flash in the pan. They would be lucky to finish 10 games under .500

But it hasn't. He will never be the same. You have to look at him as he is now and not the fact that he's getting a clean start in NY. There's a reason Chicago gave him up. Kudos to them for sticking with him this long and kudos+ to them for trading him when his stock had recovered somewhat from a decent year.

Rose was never "untouchable" he was basically gifted the MVP that year because they didn't want to give it to lebron. 25/7.7 as a pg on 44% shooting is not untouchable and is barely even MVP worthy as a high point of a career, especially considering the chicago bulls are known to be lebron's bitch in the playoffs. Stop playing up how good the dude was

Knicks had Melo and Porzingis this season and they finished 13th in the Leastern Conference with a 32-50 record.

You add D.Rose, who maybe gives you 50 games give or take and you think you sniff home court advantage in the playoffs? lol, just lol

Knicks need to pray they land Durant or at least Howard to bolster the defense a bit. And then its a Big 4, nothing other would be required to even sniff the EC finals.

Oh, they are. Hornacek likes fast-paced systems and DRose is obviously a great PG for that, plus with Porzingis they got a big man with mobility. The triangle, which no one fuking understood in NY, is finally a thing of the past too.

But they will be nowhere near the EC finals with those three players unless they land another big name that fits.

It was the same deal when LAL got Nash and Howard to join Kobe. Looked amazing on paper and LA fan assuming they'd be a lock for the finals but we saw what happened there. It's different when you have the best player in the league to lead a superteam (Lebron) but if your best player is Melo, don't count on them beating a healthy cavs in the playoffs--the dude can't even lead a team with Porzingis and Lopez to the playoffs.

At least in westbrooks case he gets some shots in..

Kevin Durant doesn't shoot enough as is..

Roae and melo remind me of howard and hardin.

2 "stars" who could have been so much more. I know DROSE got injured not his fault but you know what i mean.

2 "stars" who will never win.

They need to drop everyone but KP and build around him.

Stars can get you to playoffs, but depth on the bench along with "blue collar" players (think tristin thompson) are what make a championship team.

i honestly dont get this. its not like melo doesnt try. for the past 3 years hes been trying his ass off, and i think last year everyone saw that.

if you take him out, kristaps doesnt have a veteran to learn from. would completely stunt his growth or at the very least slow it down. they have something going with all this momentum, attracting other free agents and whatnot. why kill that.

He is extremely one dimensionsal. Plays awful defense, makes nobody around him better.

Im not saying he is a garbage player though lol. Its just a personal opinion that he doesnt have "it" if you know what i mean.

Can he pair up with some dudes and play good in the playoffs? Sure. But like i said i just dont see him ever being that guy that holds up a finals MVP trophy.

I hope im wrong though and he can get the knicks to make somewhat of an entertsining run over the next year or 2

i suppose we have different opinions, i just think based off what i see, the guy gets trashed for no reason. i always see him playing defense and making good plays, especially last year, he finally passed the ball enough to appeal to the media idiots that were criticizing him for not passing enough, but they still got no where. that just goes to show you, scoring points> everything else. people lose sight of that. knicks need solid role players, they havent had that since melo's scoring champ season

I really want them to make noise. Melo needs to get a ring because until he does hes not going to be appreciated as the best that he is. Rose needs it too. It would suck if he is only going to be remembered as a what if. And I like Porzingod, he has a lot of potential. Plus, they have decent backups like Jennings and Lee. I love them this year.

Yeah Melo and Rose deserve it more than anyone in the league. The youngest player ever to win MVP and a top 10 superstar in the past decade. If they don't win it this season then definitely within the next 3 years.

First off, why did you name harden back when this thread was made? Harden is a beast and has been for a while. How much more can harden do? He lead a team to the WCFs, and this year will probably win MVP.

He should have won MVP 2 years ago over Curry, and last year got screwed. Didnt even make 3rd team all nba putting up 29pts 7.5asts and 6rebs which is a joke. This year putting up even bigger stats. Dwight could have been more though but never developed a go to move. He was absolutely dominant on D though for a bit. One of the best defenders of all time at the center position in his prime.

As for the bold. Why would you want to drop this team for KP? They are already pretty much making it his team. They are on pace to win 48-50 games this year. Rose is playing 3rd option. Id rather be in KPs shoes now, getting to the playoffs yearly until he hits his prime at 26, then have a team then built completely around him (cuz rose and melo will be gone) while getting playoff experience now, over being a towns, russell, embiid type where the team is built around you, but you cant even make the playoffs for 2-3 years at least. This is a great situation for KP, and the team is already slowly becoming his.

Yeah not to mention they would've won a championship 4 years ago if it weren't for the refs. The Bulls dun goofed hard though, getting rid of Rose and acquiring Rondo, just lmao.
