08:08 AM ET 04.09 | With Carmelo Anthony on a high-scoring roll and the Knicks running out to win No. 50 in Oklahoma City, the goals grow loftier and more significant. As in, as lofty and significant as it gets. "It's desperate times for our team to win and win now," Mike Woodson said about his veteran-laden team Monday during his weekly show on ESPN radio. "We're in desperate times right now to win a title." One step at a time, of course, but Woodson's Knicks are rolling and can clinch the franchise's first division title since 1994 with either a home win Tuesday night against Washington or a Nets loss to the Sixers in Brooklyn. "It was our number one goal coming into the season to win the division," [Tyson Chandler said].

It's going to hurt so much if they vow out in the first round. 1 game at a time. Worry about the finals when it comes. You also need some other options just in case Melo gets locked down in the playoffs.

Division Title Should Not Be Your Number One Goal, Bro.

Window is closing quickly. They can make some serious noise, but they can't feel good knowing a lot of that sucess depends on JR Smith continuing to play at a high level and make good decisions.

First thing I thought was: Everyone is desperate to win a title, every season.

At least one would hope...

Closer to a title than the Knicks. The Knicks are as good as they're gonna get and that's a best the 7-8 best team in the league. And they're the oldest team in the league, and getting older. The Cavs are the youngest. With tons of draft picks. Guess who has a better future?

Draft picks mean 0 without picking the right people.

Yeah this draft is incredibly weak.

Their window is slim/short because of the age of their players and they are capped strapped by Amare still has 2 more years on his deal. Kidd, Thomas, Sheed, Prigoni are one step from leaving for retirement or other reasons. They really need to retain JR next year but will he cash in and get his last big payday?
