Not to mention they have beaten the Bulls twice this season already.

I never stated they don't play defense. They lack defensive consistency. They give up the 3rd most points in the league. A couple good quarters or games doesn't prove much, in my estimation.

Good luck to your Knicks. They playoffs will either prove or disprove their defensive ability. I look forward to watching them play. It will be fun.

much better team than atlanta IMO... even the bulls


I give the Knicks props, but they are still the 6th best team in the east behind Miami, Boston, Orlando,Chicago, Atl.  Also, Raymond Felton is not a top 5 pg in the league. Its Cp3, Dwill, Rondo, Rose, Nash.

Felton now is better than Nash now (not Nash in his prime). Right now they are giving the same offensive production but Felton's defense separates him.

Yes, Nash is aging, but other than defense and quickness, Nash is still a better overall pg than Felton.

Nash shoots the ball way better than felton, he can score 18-20 pts a game if he wants to and also a way better play maker. Nash just has nothing to play for right now in Pheonix.

your right he does have a sweeter jumpshot but feltons shining alot brighter than nash is right now and has alot to play for.. i dont think nash will ever have anything else to play for so i guess he reaaly is done. if thats whats youre basing his performance on//. his tanks near e.. stoudemires gone too.. i guess like lebron left cleveland, stoudemire left nash.. no hope for a championship in either ..
