The most pleasant surprise this year has been the way the Knicks have dominated the defending NBA champion Miami Heat — with and without Carmelo Anthony. While many think the team still has a lot to prove, New York has already set the tone and made it very clear that they are a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. With key players (Shumpert, Felton) soon returning to full strength, the Knicks should be set for a deep playoff run. - Michael T. Lyle Jr.
