Can New-Look Knicks Take Heat?

Just two games after the Knicks blew up its roster to get Carmelo Anthony and sent four of its top players to the Denver Nuggets, is New York ready for tonight's ‘Battle of the Superstars’ in Miami against the Heat? Chemistry is the problem when so many new players arrive to a starting lineup. It took the Heat a quarter of a season to gel into one of the top teams in the NBA after the arrival of its big three, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

Since the Knicks got Anthony, Chauncey Billips and a bunch of new players with only 26 games left in the season, they do not have that luxury – especially if they want to win now and make the playoffs – much less go past the first round. Add to that that ‘Melo will be playing with a very sore right arm that he hurt in the last game. In fact, he was taking shots in practice only with his left.
Let’s face it; Miami is a formidable team and the Knicks’ Amar'e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony Chauncy Billips and company will have a nearly impossible task in tonight’s battle of the superstars. The Knicks chances of winning against the Heat this time are very slight, but Knicks fans can always hope. In any case, the real victory will come when the Knicks gel and become one of the best like the Miami Heat!
