New York Knicks 2013-2014 Season Preview
By NICK ALBICOCCO
The Knicks have brought back their main players to this year’s NBA season, including their top players: JR Smith, Tyson Chandler, Iman Shumpert, and last year’s top scorer Carmelo Anthony. The team acquired a few new additions this year: Metta World Peace from Los Angeles, Andrea Bargnani from Toronto, and Tim Hardaway Jr. from the University of Michigan.
After falling in the second round to the Indiana Pacers last year, the team is determined to bring a championship to New York City. To add to the Knicks’s offensive talents, the additions of World Peace and Hardaway Jr. will bring new defensive prowess.
Watch out for the rivalry between the Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets, as the two teams have been trash talking each other all summer long about who “owns” the city.
With a star-studded team and a newly renovated Madison Square Garden, the eighteen thousand-plus seats should be packed for the Knicks this season. There seems to be a consensus around Jericho High School that the Knicks will be eliminated in the second round this year. “I think the Knicks will make it to the second round if they are on a hot streak,” said ninth grader Ben Alon.
Liam Garbus agreed. “They’ll make it at least to the second round,” he said.
There is no doubt that New York Knicks fans are in for another fun season.
