As the preseason is right around the corner I feel like this is the perfect time to drop my New York Knicks season predictions…In what many would call a failed offseason (cause we didn’t trade for Donovan Mitchell) I would agree cause I love Donovan but I also would disagree. We may have got our starting PG of the future and without question the best starting PG we have had in the last 20-30 years in Jalen Brunson. Was the contract maybe too high…yes…but at the end of the day if he plays well…who cares. We also signed a good bench player in Hartenstein and found a way to acquire some more picks. On top of that we signed RJ to an extension (that wasn’t a max) and we brought back a KEY defensive piece in Mitchell Robinson. The Knicks success will bank on 2 things this year…can they find a reliable backup SF and good scorer (like Harrison Barnes who I have in this trade) and can Julius Randle return to form. I strongly believe the Knicks win 4 more games then they did last year and go 41-41 on the year and finish somewhere in the 8-10 range. But…if Julius Randle plays like he did 2 years ago…watch out. I’m not saying this team is championship ready or anything like that but I strongly believe if Randle plays like he did 2 years we can 100% win a playoff series (as long as he doesn’t do bad in the postseason again LOL). The Knicks will be a much stronger and more hungry team then last year and I think with the young guys they have as long as they can find minutes for them (cmon Thibs) the Knicks can have something special here in NY for the next couple years…it’s just all about finding that next STAR who becomes available 👀

Potential Knicks starting/bench lineup with PPG predictions…

PG: Brunson (17.9)/Rose (12.4)

SG: Quickley (16.5)/Grimes (10.6)

SF: Barrett (21.7)/Barnes (17.5)

PF: Randle (20.4)/Toppin (9.9)

C: Robinson (8.5)/Hartenstein (8.9)
