2018-2019 New York Knicks Roster 
Posted on April 5, 2018 at 01:33 AM.
Going into their first season after the plane crash, their first under new ownership and with a new coach and a brand new roster the Knicks head to training camp today.

Mark Jackson commented to reporters as the team loaded the busses. "There is a feeling in the air, these guys are hungry. We have a lot of guys that weren't wanted a lot of guys that are looking for an opportunity and a lot of guys that are honored to wear that Knicks uniform. I don't know what we will accomplish this year but I know this, these guys aren't going to hang their heads. They are going to compete each and every night."

With that I give you the 2018-2019 New York Knickerbockers basketball roster following the NBA draft and free agency heading into training camp.

3 Things about the Knicks heading into camp.

1) Who will be the alpha dog on this team?
This team is filled with has beens, also rans, and last chance players. The exception is Fred VanVleet who made a name for himself last year with the Raptors. Now VanVleet will get an opportunity to run a team on the biggest stage in basketball will he shine?

2) Where will the points come from?
Nick young is over the hill as is David Lee. Both could have shouldered the burden in their younger years, now they will be looked on for stability off the bench most likely. Wait did I just say Nick Swaggy P Young would be looked to for stability? How things have changed. For these Knicks they will need to find a point scorer someone to put 20 up night in and night out. Can Noel do it? He probably has the most upside of any player on this roster.

3) Can Super Mario flourish?
Mario Hezonja was once upon a time a top five pick. He was supposed to be a high caliber scorer. Well things never panned out in Orlando but now he will have that opportunity to be the guy in the city. We will see if the young man can re-discover the swagger that spawned the super mario nickname heading into the 2015 draft.
