Knicks coming back to Earth?

By ESPNNewYork.com staff

The Knicks are ninth in Marc Stein’s most recent NBA rankings, one spot back of the Rockets and one ahead of the Boston Celtics.

They moved up one spot from the previous rankings.

Guest analyst Jim Cavan, who writes for the "KnickerBlogger" blog, thinks the Knicks may be coming back to Earth.

Writes Cavan: "Knicks, meet Earth. The Red Holzman-era ball movement and torrid shooting that fueled an 18-5 start is gone. (Or in hibernation.) Given its win-now makeup, recapturing that offensive chemistry will be paramount to New York's postseason prospects."

Question: What do you think about the rankings? Too high? Too low?
