To recap, they have a new owner, new general manager, new coach, new arena, 11 new players (including three rookies) and both new hope and new questions. Yes, It's All New.
Fred Kerber in the Post and Al Iannazzone for YES are the latest beat reporters to ask whether "new" translates into "better". The verdict, and no one seems to want to fully commit, is that they will be better (how could they be worse?) but not playoff better...and so much depends on Brook Lopez and their seemingly never-ending attempts to get Carmelo Anthony.
One thing to add to the mix: Sir Charles thinks that while they tanked last season, they'll be better than the Knicks this one.
