Finishing with the second best record in the East last season, but being ousted in the second round of the Playoffs, the Knicks are championship hopefuls this year.
Already this off season we’ve heard both Iman Shumpert, and J.R. Smith say they think New York can win the 2014 title. Now you can add new reserve combo guard Beno Udrih to that list. While taking in the US Open in New York, he was asked about his new team’s potential success, and the man affectionately known as Gogi says the Knickerbockers can make the Finals.
“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.’’
