I'm now 60 years old; so you're on to something

It's just weird to me that you got 5 tattooed on each butt cheek, especially at your generation, but to each their own

Double cheek double nickel triple double wrinkle.

Big potential for improvement if RJ Barrett can improve his efficiency. He was second in total minutes but ninth in win shares. If RJ can become more efficient from the field, Knicks have a chance to reach 50 wins. The other big question is if Randle can be consistently good. I think PG play has a lot to do with Randle's efficiency, Brunson should continue to lift his percentages.

I'm going with 49 wins, two more because of consistency.

Leaning towards the low. I think Brunson caught folks off guard last season. Teams came in with a plan to beat Randle and Brunson beat them. I think every team will come in with a plan to beat Brunson and will force Randle and Barrett to beat them. There is value in continuity, but we caught a lot of teams unprepared or injured last season. Good wins, but can't rely on toughness over talent. I don't think our 3pt shooting is real. I think every team will have a ton of tape on how to beat the Knicks.

1) Cleveland got exposed by Mitch Robinson. But those bigs will be a year older and a year stronger. Not saying that Mitch doesn't beast on them again, but I think they will come prepared to body him up.

2) Miami should be worse, but we took 3 out of 4 in the regular season and a healthy Butler/Adebayo is a handful for us. Expect to win less.

3) We gave the Celts fits during the regular season. I think they are improved. In fact, they may be approaching my "perfect team". Still have to play the games, but they are my choice for NBA champs

4) The Wemby Tank is no longer a thing. More teams will be competitive longer.

5) Nets broke down with drama. Don't expect them to be as dysfunctional this season.

6) Philly seems more busted, but honestly, they were good without Harden.

7) Bucks look like like 1a and 1b with Boston. I'm giving Boston the edge, but its tight. Its only cause I don't think Lill can defend.

8) Toronto is changing coaches. Don't know which way they go, but they are a bad matchup for us every year.

I know pundits are backing the Knicks cause of continuity and their playoff push last year, but I think that just makes teams take the Knicks games more serious. I worry this team will not evolve further.

But I hope I am wrong.

Best case 52 wins
Worst case 40 wins

I think the team will win 45 games.

Me too. If Randle gets a significant injury it’s gonna be a problem.

43 wins

I think 48 wins and I worry. The NBA is hard. We got some great play last year after getting Hart, but if we are exceeding last year, we're going to need RJ to become reliable from behind the 3pt line, and he still doesn't look like he will.

Can’t look too much into preseason and summer leagues. I was psyched for Knox a few years ago and then reality happened

Very possible my thoughts are biased by the Yankees and Giants.

This is the Randle.

44 wins with no big trade during the season

I believe there will be a big trade this season.

Yep, I agree with you. If Randle gets hurt this team is in serious trouble. We really need to add a combo forward.

Considering how they already hit 47 last year and I *feel* the we have now is better than what we had pre-Josh Hart... let's go wild with 50. Not so bold prediction.

I think the Sixers, Nets, and Raptors took steps back. Heck, I think the loss of Collins will set Atlanta back too. Wins against those teams can make the difference.

Seems Vegas has over/under at 45.5. I was surprised it was that low. I think the over would be a good bet.

Those folks in Vegas are super good at taking our money.

Me, I would take the under and it would be insurance for hurt feelings.
