ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith has high expectations for the Knicks heading into the postseason

The New York Knicks have earned the respect of the mass media, largely thanks to the rapid rise of Jalen Brunson. One of ESPN’s most prominent personalities, Stephen A. Smith, made a bold prediction last week about how far the Knicks can go this season:

“For now it’s the Boston Celtics. Am I worried about the Cleveland Cavaliers? No. If the New York Knicks get healthy, they will go to the Conference Finals,” Smith said via ESPN’s NBA Today (h/t BasketballOnX/X ).
