Beno Udrih thinks the Knicks can make the NBA Finals
This past weekend sixth man J.R. Smith guaranteed that the Knicks would bring a championship back to the Big Apple. Now it's newly signed point guard Beno Udrih saying he believes the Knicks have what it takes to make the NBA Finals.
Udrih told Marc Berman of the New York Post that the Knicks need to have that mindset going into next season.
“I believe our team can go as far as going to the Finals,’’ Udrih told The Post at Ashe Stadium in his first remarks since signing. “We have to think like that from the first practice. We can be very good. It all depends how seriously we’re going to take it.
“We all believe we can go really far. And our goal from the beginning has to be win it all because we know we’re going to be in the playoffs. Our mentality from the first practice has to be: we want to win a championship.’’
I know you're supposed to be optimistic but I'm sure Miami, Indiana, Chicago, and Brooklyn will have a say in how far the Knicks go.
I do believe the Knicks are a viable playoff contender and will be a tough out once they get there, but until they prove otherwise they're not championship contenders just yet.
