While I know a lot of NBA experts are expecting the New York Knicks to give the Miami Heat a run for their money in the first round, I just don’t see it. The Heat are just too good. LeBron James is the best player in the league and Dwyane Wade always shows up in the playoffs. The Knicks, meanwhile, are a gimmick team that depends on one-on-one play.
I do think a couple of the games are going to be close. But I don’t think the Knicks will be able to win any of the contests. Carmelo Anthony could explode for 40 points but still be totally outplayed by LeBron. The bottom line is that the Knicks simply don’t have the manpower to beat the Heat.
PREDICTION: Heat in 4
