    Default 5 Things That Excite You Going Into the 2014/2015 Season?

    A chance to perhaps bring up some of the things that intrigue/excite you about this coming season.

    1.) Cabolco - I extremely curious to see how his development progresses. If he could somehow be contributing even in a minor 9th or 10th man role by the end of his first year I think it would go a long way to shutting down the criticism of the pick.

    2.) Bebe - Having watched a lot of videos of him now I love the way he tracks the ball and blocks shots. He does it in a way that keeps it in play. I would like to see him in spot center minutes and battling for a role as early as training camp

    3.) Becoming a second round playoff team. I would love to see these Raps battle through the first round and make some noise in the second round possibly even threaten for the ECF.

    4.) JV's third year. As big men do take longer to develop I'm interested to see how JV shows up and if he will experience an increased role. I'm also looking for defensive improvement. He showed flashes against Brooklyn of being an absolute monster inside, and I want more.

    5.) Ross. I think due to his fairly epic playoff slump, and the attention paid towards it, a switch has likely gone off. I'm excited/interested to see how personally he took that and what he intends to do about it when he hits the court in October.

    Well that's what has me excited...what about you?

    1. The chance our offence could be better and more balanced
    2. The chance our defence could be better
    3. See if Ross can take another big step...hope he does. Think given his age and position, I wanna see a bigger jump from him than anyone else on the roster, including Jonas.
    4. The chance we could not only avoid turnovers on inbounds, but maybe even score on inbound plays with some regular success.
    5. No more Salmons...I repeat: NO MORE SALMONS. I never again want to see a guy who clearly just can't physically do what's asked of him get a regular role in our top 8 for totally inexplicable reasons.

    Masai treats the Knicks like they are his personal farm team system, where he can cultivate assets for the future. It's not right or fair, but he's THE WARLORD

    anyways i always look forward to seeing how the new guys play but i think the thing that intrigues me most is how does Lowry play? Does he still keep in shape and play as hard?

    hope JV and Ross improve as well, obviously

    1) Kyle Lowry leading the charge once again and hopefully earning that bigger paycheck on the court.

    2) A team that will now have a full training camp with our SAC bench (minus salmons and maybe GV?). Hopefully this means better offense that doesn't involve 4 dudes standing still on the court.

    3) JV/Ross development. Both are generally doing pretty well so far. Lets keep it going.

    4) The grooming of the 2 brazilian broncos.

    5) Demar provin'em. Hopefully he's back with an even stronger 3 point shot than last season, and extend that range to outside the corner spots.

    5b) Landry hopefully getting some semblance of his shot back? Although all the tv work he's been doing makes it seem like its not really that important to him.

    TRUST!

    last season opener they played Drake's "Hold on we're going home", i cringed.
    like what is it? a fucking wedding?

    hope they play Trophies or something if it had to be Drake's.
