I also said watch out for the Knicks before the season and ppl laugh. Now who's laughing.  They have 2 very good PG's in Felton and Kidd to go along with the good frontcourt. JR Smith is tearing it up. And without Amare!!

NO, they will choke give them time it is early.   I don't see them making it out of the second round.

I think it's mainly on carmelo.  Much like pierce he has to play the better team game and sacrifice shots and stats.  Kidd and chandler change their makeup for sure.  Much to early to tell

Offense has got to come from somewhere.  Personally I don't think it matters if it comes from Carmelo, Amare, Lin, or Novak.

I think it's Tyson Chandler's presence that really makes the team.  I've always said Miami is brainless for not signing LeBron and just waiting a year for Chandler instead of Bosh.
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale

They are absolutely for real. They now have real PG play and they have an excellent bench (much better than the C's). I think they win the division with Brooklyn coming in 2nd.

They're legit right now. They've upgraded at PG, improved their depth, and are gelling.

Grantland had a good article on how well Melo's doing and how that might change when Amare gets back because he'll eat up space in the post. But on the flip, Shumpert's a guy who scares me so if he comes back healthy that's a guy they can throw in anytime and he'll be effective.

Legit? Naw, they're playing like how a good basketball team should be playing. They're shooting the ball well, defending and rebounding, and their bench seems to have an identity. I wish I can say the same for the Celtics. But I still think the Knicks or Nets don't stand a chance the Heat once playoffs come.

I find leglers quote particually amusing....I don't exactly think Miami has been or is scared of anyone...I'm sure they still respect the celtics as much as any team...but as far as the knickerbockers go I think they're as much a contender as us at this point sorrrry

blowing out the Cheat without Mello and Amarie in Miami is pretty serious.

Wade looked OLD and LOST
Bosh ...wimpy
James ..was dog tired trying to keep the Cheat in the game.

Allen was of little use...out played by Sheed.
