With training camp less than two months away, we’re examining the burning questions facing the New York Knicks. Today’s question: Can the Knicks win a title with Carmelo Anthony?

With training camp less than two months away, we’re examining the burning questions facing the New York Knicks. Today’s question: Will the Knicks' defense be an issue again? I think the Knicks’ defense will have its challenges again this season. I also believe that Derek Fisher will get the Knicks to play better D by installing a better scheme. Last season, the Knicks were often confused on defense and all the switching did not go smoothly.

But last week, some of the biggest names in the NBA were training out a couple blocks away from Madison Square Garden.
