Every weekday throughout the season, ESPNNewYork.com will tackle a burning question about the Knicks in our "Opening Tip" segment.

Today's Burning Question: Tyson Chandler is predicting a "breakout" season for Carmelo Anthony. Do you feel the same way?

Marcus Camby has known Carmelo Anthony since the Knicks star was a 19-year-old rookie in Denver.

So when Camby says something about Anthony, you pay attention.

On Wednesday, Camby was asked about his impressions of Anthony following the Knicks' four-week preseason.

"I just think his confidence is at an all-time high, especially coming off the way he performed this summer over in the Olympics," Camby said. "His talent is limitless. To me it seems like he’s getting better and better."

Chandler has spent the past few months with Anthony, traveling across the Atlantic with him for the Olympics and sweating with him through Mike Woodson's first training camp in New York.

So when Chandler says something about Anthony, you listen.

"I expect big things from Carmelo this year. I think this is going to be his breakout year," Chandler said.

"As much as he’s accomplished throughout his career already, I think he’s going to put together a complete season and show you everything that he’s capable of doing out on the basketball floor."

Strong stuff.

Do you agree with Camby and Chandler? Do you think Anthony's on the verge of a breakout season in his third year with the Knicks?
