Total Wins Under 30.5 New York Knicks

Basketball - NBA - 18 Oct 00:00

This one is an absolute banker for me and I will be very surprised if things go the other way. Knicks have a very bad roster with a lot of holes in my opinion. They only have one above average player in Porzingis with the second best guy probably being Hardaway Jr. who would not even start for many teams.

Last year this team Won 31 games but they had veterans Anthony and Rose along rotation guys like Holiday and Jennings. Their most important loss is Melo who was their star for the past 6 years.

While he was not amazing last 2 seasons he is still one of the most reliable scorer in the league when he is focused. When he missed a game last season the Knicks went 2-6, 1 year ago they went 0-12 and 2 years ago they went 5-34. This is a clear indication that they need him and his scoring and that they will struggle without him.

Another big problem for them will be the point guard position where they lost Rose and got the rookie Ntklina and veteran Sessions. Ntklina is a raw prospect that I would be very surprised to be a starting caliber player while Sessions was pretty bad as a backup for the Hornets last season so he most likely won't be even close to be a decent starter for the Knicks. The Knicks will be also have big problems at the SF position where they will either start McDermott (a guy that barely made the rotation for the Thunder last season) or Lance Thomas.

Their only position that have great depth is at center where they have 3 (some may say even 4) decent NBA players in Hernangomez, Manger and O'Quinn. However neither of these guys is above average and the coach will struggle to give minutes to all of them so I can see some problems in the locker room from the one of them who will play the least.

I do not put much value on what a team does in the preseason but the Knicks were really bad so far with 3 big losses where they showed their scoring problems. I can't see many ways a team with no real proven players at point guard and small forward position winning the more than 30 games in the NBA so I would be shocked if this losses.
