Michael Beasley thinks Knicks can be playoff team

Michael Beasley has some high hopes for the coming season in New York.

On Tuesday, Beasley called Carmelo Anthony a mentor and a best friend and said that he is looking forward to playing with the 10-time All-Star forward, per Al Iannazzone of Newsday. Beasley also went on to say that he believes the Knicks can be a playoff team in the 5-to-6-seed range.

Beasley, who agreed to a one-year deal with the Knicks in August, is probably a little ambitious on both fronts. The Knicks finished 31-51 last season, their fourth consecutive one missing the playoffs, and Anthony still seems likely to be traded. But the East will probably be even more rancid this season, and there are some subtle signs that Anthony remains committed to the team as training camp nears. As for Beasley, we already know he’s all-in on the Knicks, and the irrational confidence here is certainly true to character for him.
