The lights flicker on, one by one in a row at the Knicks
training facility. The smell of floor polisher
is fresh in the air. This day is not like any other summer day, this day is Day 1 of the organized pre camp sessions. The sound of basketballs hitting the floor begins to ring off the walls and the smell of sweat over powers the freshly polished floors. Carmelo
calls all the players into a team huddle and expresses the NY
plan for winning in 12/13. They huddle at center court and ends with an all hands in and KNICKS chant in unison. Practice begins with a quick whistle
The significance of this pre camp is something we as fans and media might look back on. Chemistry and dedication is the bookmark to a high level play in the NBA

. Do these Knicks have the heart and desire to win at all costs? This is a question we need answered this year.

The Knicks organization has a small sample of head coach Mike Woodson’s coaching style to analyze. So far, his coaching skills have been well received by the team. Will this translate to a winning season?
Under Woodson, last year’s regular season, the Knicks went 18-6 and never lost 2 games in a row. Out of the 6 games they lost, only 2 slip ups were apparent against teams...
