Knicks are closer to the playoffs than the Rangers right now

Who thought back in September we'd be saying that on February 7, 2007? Not me, the Knicks were a joke, and we were a team on the way up.

But the Knicks are a half game closer to the playoffs than the Rangers today, and have two teams to climb over, while we have three. And we have Boston right behind us, while the Knicks have a couple of games on Atlanta.

Sad state.

Apples to Oranges, the East and Atlantic in general is a joke in NBA. However, agreed Rangers struggles have left them in rough state. Maybe I am in denial, but I really hope your in better shape then the Knicks. This post looks good for Dolan, comparing whose worst.

agreed with apples and oranges however knicks have a lot of developing talent and if not for a cap or their financial restrictions they'd be in better shape than the rangers

curry, lee, crawford each have made major strides in development this year

qrich has improved, frye started off slow but is at where he was last season, same with stef although his performance has been better than last season (not the same old stef though, whether you see that as good or bad).. then there's balkman who has provided a lot for a little.. the rest have been garbage, james, jeffries, francis etc.. giant wastes of cap space.. robinson has regressed a bit but its not hurting the team

really as good as their improvements have been, it comes down to curry, if he continues to evolve into a dominant center they are in great shape

their major problem is defense then consistency

Exactly. Rip the Knicks and Isiah all you want (and believe me, I have), but at least Isiah is willing to play young guys and they have paid big dividens.

But besides, you can't really compare the two. The Raptors are in first place in the Atlantic and just recently squeaked over .500 on the year (I think they are 3 games above now). The Devils are slightly better than that.
