With additions like Bargnani and Hardaway Jr., combined with Melo, J.R. and Amar'e, the Knicks offense appears to be as potent as last year, when they ranked third in the league in efficiency.

Meanwhile, full seasons from Shumpert and Kenyon Martin, plus World Peace and Tyson Chandler make for a devastating defense. The pieces are in place; if the Knicks can stay healthy, the division is theirs.
