Looks like the Miami Heat won’t be alone as a superstar laden team.

With the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks finally reaching a deal that sent Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups, as well as a few other players, to the Knicks for Danillo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Timofey Mozgov, Raymond Felton, and three draft picks to Denver, the Eastern Conference suddenly has another team to add to an already lengthy list of NBA Finals contenders. Boston, Miami, Chicago, and Orlando all suddenly have company at the top with the Knicks becoming immediate contenders.

Prior to joining New York, Anthony was experiencing a drop off from last season’s career numbers. His 25 points per game on 45 percent shooting is nothing to look down upon, but considering he is coming off of a season where he was averaging a near career high 28 points, one wonders how much of an impact Carmelo will have on his new team. Anthony will join another one of the most prolific and pure scorers in the league in Amare Stoudemire as the duo forms one of the strongest and dangerous front courts in the league.

    No this Sundays game is not a test of how good New York Knicks can be. They have only been together for 3 days. They are at an utter disadvantage to the likes of the Heat. The Knicks have only been together for a couple days. They don’t know each others tendencies, dont know the plays, have no chemistry. They’ve had no preseason together, only one practice together. This is the preseason for this Knick team. How are you going to judge them in only their third game together against the Heat?
    Despite the Heat having a preseason together and having most of their team having numerous practices at that military base somewhere. You Heat fans are going to use this game as an opportunity to boast your elitism? Are you that desperate? I think the best test to see how good this Knick team is going to be is by seeing how they perform in the Playoffs. It will give a true barometer on how good the Knicks will be in the future. How good will the foundation of this Knick team perform under the bright lights of the playoffs against the best of the best, by then they should be gelled pretty good.
