The New York Knicks are looking to make a push into the playoff picture next season. They want to show everyone that they have improved the team overall. This is not the superstar studded group that their fans had dreamed of but they will be a competitive hard-nosed ball club.

David Fizdale will be able to mold and position these players in whichever manner he sees fit. They have the positional depth to rotate players and find out what works best for them. With training camp fast approaching, things will begin to clear up on the depth chart. Then the focus for the season will take hold.

The coach has a good base to work from. 2019-20 should be much better than last year’s debacle. Their young players have plenty of potential to grow into dependable contributors, while the recent veteran free agent signings are solid players.

Have the Knicks done enough to make a push at a playoff spot? Does the balance of power shift in the NBA over the summer help their chances? Are you in a love/hate relationship with the Knicks but too afraid to leave because you been loyal this long and they may actually change their ways?
