The New York Knicks securing the 4th Seed in the Eastern Conference last year was a miracle given the lack of talent at specific positions. Thanks to All-Star power forward Julius Randle, the team relied on his offensive production to win an impressive string of games during the latter portion of the year.
The New York Knicks inevitably will be linked with big names in trade rumors now that the NBA Finals have ended, but those running the organization must first concern themselves with the draft that takes place July 29.
Rose scored a team-high 26 points while playing 39 minutes in the crucial win. Many assumed Rose's days of being a valuable postseason contributor were behind him after his career was derailed by injuries.
The New York Knicks are preparing to host their first playoff game since 2013, so it should come as no surprise that tickets for Game 1 of the team's first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks are pricey.
Randle is putting together the most impressive season by a Knicks player since Carmelo Anthony nearly a decade ago, as the 26-year-old is averaging 24.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 5.9 assists per game this season.
