Defense the key in 2015

The New York Knicks open the regular season on the road tomorrow evening against the Milwaukee Bucks and the focus for the season should be defense and the establishment of a normal rotation and stay away from the “small ball” (two point guards alongside Anthony) that dominated much of last season whether due to injury or necessity.

The fact that the team is much deeper this season and, with an attempt to keep Carmelo Anthony’s minutes down, this roster of savvy veterans and youth looks to make the playoffs and predictions for the Knicks to make the playoffs have been echoed from pundit to pundit.

“We have a deeper roster now,” Anthony said. “Whereas before, I think that was kind of my problem in the past, that I was afraid to take a game here or take a game there, thinking I had to do it all myself and we’re not in that position anymore,” he said.

“The Knicks are one of my sleeper teams,” Barkley, a TNT analyst, said during a conference call Monday to preview the season. “I think Phil Jackson’s done a good job getting quality NBA players. …. I’m picking the Knicks to make the playoffs. I’m guaranteeing it!”

The season home opener is this Thursday.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your New York Knicks in 2015!
