How To Bet On New York Knicks – Knicks Among The Hardest To Predict In Eastern Conference

Posted by Craig Parsons on 10/28/2012 6:32:31 PM

When it comes to evaluating the NBA Eastern Conference for the 2012-13 regular season there may not be a harder online sportsbook team to predict than the New York Knicks. The potential has been there since the Knicks landed both Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudamire, but a blend of injuries and inconsistencies has kept this team from reaching its lofty expectations thus far. There is no doubt that this New York team has what it takes to contend with the best in the Eastern conference this coming year, but it will come down to buying in to the team concept and working together to be something more than just a group of talented individuals.

The sports betting fans will look first to Anthony in terms of leadership, as despite his impressive statistics there is still something to be desired with the 28-year old forward. Anthony was one of the highest scoring players in the NBA a year ago with 22.6 points per game, and also contributed on the score sheet with an average of 6.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists last season. The next step for Anthony will be learning how to make his teammates better, beginning with the other veteran expected to help lead this team in Stoudamire. Stoudamire showed signs of immaturity last season including when he smashed his hand through a piece of glass following a playoff loss and was forced to sit out the rest of the way, but with so much talent the Knicks will have to find a way to harness him in, and any guidance from Anthony will be huge.

New York will also welcome back a former starter in Raymond Felton, who the team felt could start at the point guard position and contribute both in terms of scoring and ball distribution. The Knicks also signed veteran Jason Kidd to help work with Felton, and the two should each see significant playing time. How the team decides to use Iman Shumpert will be important, and there are already to capable veteran shooting guards on the roster with JR Smith and Ronnie Brewer. The Knicks have two of the better defensive centers in the NBA with the reigning Defensive Player of the Year Tyson Chandler and Marcus Camby, so they should feel more than comfortable up front.

What makes such a talented team so hard to figure out is how it will all come together, particularly in regards to the chemistry between Anthony and Stoudamire, which was an issue at times last season. New York certainly has both the talent and the depth to challenge the Miami Heat for the role of best team in the Eastern conference, but in order to get to that level they will need to play as a team rather than as a group of individuals. Confidence will go a long way if this team starts out on the right track, and it certainly wouldn’t be a surprise to many online betting players if the Knicks do big things this season.
