Will there be a huge improvement?

It's like with the Heat in their first year... will it be the same sort of?

Erik had D-wade the whole time... (Kobe) then they got Bron and Bosh (Nash + Dwight)

Except the Lakers are a bit deeper with Pau.

Although I can't predict how the Lakers will do if Phil decides to coach the team, I do think that the Lakers have more locker room leadership than the 2010-2011 Miami Heat because of guys like Kobe Nash Pau and Jamison.

A guy that can coach that many stars and a guy that can win titles is definitely Phil, no question about it.

Lakers-Heat Finals is a lock IMO

but I have a feeling that if the Knicks can get a good defensive SF for Amare, they can knock off the Heat

What?

The Celtics have a much better chance of beating the heat than the Knicks, even if they trade amare.

Heat are in no way shape or form a lock against the Celtics.

Lakers, even with PJ wouldn't be a lock against the Thunder or the Spurs.

Lol its not Phil Jackson that will take the Lakers from a 1st or 2nd round team to a championship team, dont overrate him. They have been playing horrible because Howard is still not at 100%, Gasol is not playing good either and Nash is injured, the only one playing at a great level is Kobe. Even without Phil i still have them winning the championship

Phil Jackson comes back and coaches this team then IMO they become the odds on favorite to reach the finals out of the West Conf. I go as far to say they might become the odds on favorite to win it all. If anyone can dethrone the Heat it would be a Phil Jackson coached Lakers team.

Knicks are the best defensive team in the league right now, and they actually beat the Heat. Which is something the Celtics didn't do :/

Lakers are a lock to beat anyone besides Heat if this happens

I think lakers would beat Heat too but wouldn't call it a lock.

It was within 4 points with 1:30 left. It was a close game.

If you want to go down that route then the Celtics beat the heat 3 times in this years playoffs, something the Knicks didn't even come close to doing :/

Actually, the Celtics beat the Heat in the regular season 12/14 times they met up since the big 3 in Miami formed.

Same here. It would be a heck of a 7 game series thats for sure. While the heat have Lebron, Wade and Ray Allen, along with Bosh, I think adding Phil Jackson would put the lakers over the top as he would be able to figure out a way to contain those guys and of course he would by far out coach Spoelstra. I think the Heat keep it a close series because of the star power but they would get dominated in the paint by the lakers.

lulz


The Knicks are a different team than they were last season. So are the Celtics. We added Felton, Kidd, Brewer and Prigioni. Not to mention that Carmelo Anthony's having an MVP year and has turned around his defensive effort/play. He's no longer a lazy defender that only shows up to D up LeBron. Oh btw the Knicks are undefeated while the Celtics had to go into OT against the 0-4 Wizards :/

Did I mention that Novak's shooting 42% from 3PT land?

That "having an MVP year" happens to be under 5 games.

The Celtics got much better than last year, while the Knicks didn't add as much talent the Celtics did.

The Celtics added 8 new players. I didn't really expect the Celtics to start out very hot, except the game Vs the Heat.

Defensive rotations is a killer and it showed. When the Celtics had 4-5 players that knew the defensive schemes on the floor, they were killing the competition.

Anyways, I don't think I need to prove Celtics > Knicks.

The wizards are 0-4, because the Celtics beat them twice, while being a new team.

Well, it will really be interesting to see what a Phil Jackson team will do without the (Tex's) triangle offense...

Knicks are much better than last season, as well! And the no they didn't add people of talent like Sullinger and Jason Terry I guess, but Kidd isn't a scrub and Felton is back to his 2010 form during his first tenure with the Knicks. Ronnie Brewer has come to New York with an improved 3PT shot, something that Bulls fans didn't get to see. And he still plays excellent D, which is why he's starting.

Btw you say that Celtics added 8 players and they're struggling on the defensive end.. NYK added 9 new players and they are playing good on defense. Btw if I'm correct, everyone on the Celtics that's gonna play, is playing right? The Knicks have Iman Shumpert out as well as Amar'e..
