    I think the Knicks have a shot at making the playoffs however I believe that coaching and GM changes will have to take place for that to happen. Amare is a great player but he doesn’t have enough help. Barring injury I expect the Celtics to take the eastern conference. The Heat are at least 2 years away.

      Why do you think Miami is two seasons away? I see them winning it all. Mike Miller is hurt, and he is their fourth best player and a good shooter. Interesting though.
