Apparently, the NBA general managers don’t think that highly of the Knicks or their offseason moves.
In the annual NBA.com GM Poll, none of the 30 GMS picked the Knicks to win the Eastern Conference title and they were picked to finish behind the Celtics in the Atlantic Division. The Nets and Knicks each had four votes for who is the best team in the Atlantic.
Carmelo Anthony finished third in most likely to win MVP. He got one vote. Melo also finished third at best at getting his own shot and who you would want shooting with the game on the line.
Tyson Chandler finished third in best interior defender category and also recived botes for best defensive player and best offensive rebounder.
Steve Novak was the third best pure shooter.
The Marcus Camby acquisition was mentioned as one of the more underrated moves, but not one of the top three.
As a team, the Knicks were third in most surprising off-season move – Not keeping Jeremy Lin.
