The Knicks' 2014-15 season begins in less than two weeks, which means there isn't much time left for coach Derek Fisher to figure out his opening night starting lineup and overall rotation.

Carmelo Anthony, Jose Calderon, and Samuel Dalembert are assumed starters, if only by default. Based on his positive play this preseason (and incumbent?starting two-guard), one could make a strong case for Iman Shumpert to slip into the starting lineup as well.

The one position that's still left wide open is power forward. Perhaps rightfully so, because as much talent as there is at the position, there's probably just as many question marks surrounding it as well.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. ? Now a Jet, former Rams first round pick Jason Smith won?t admit to any special emotions or feeling this Sunday in St. Louis. Instead, he?s having too much fun in green and white to admit to that.

Smith endured an up and down tenure with the Rams, where four years ago he was a first round pick. Expectations were high, some of which he met and some of which were unfulfilled and led him to becoming a bit of a whipping boy among the Rams fan base. He was traded to the Jets this season in exchange for the much maligned Wayne Hunter and with his new team he?s primarily been used as a jumbo tight end.

There?s no extra feelings for Smith this week leading up to a return to the team that drafted and then three years later traded him. ??I play for the Jets and that?s my life now,? Smith told The Jets Blog.

Some of what's being said by journalists about the Wayne Hunter for Jason Smith trade.

Kimberley Martin of Newsday:

A Jets spokesman told reporters last week that the team would not trade Hunter and his guaranteed $2.45-million contract this season. But general manager Mike Tannenbaum apparently changed his mind during the past few days.

Physically I have all the attributes that I need to be successful. ?A lot of the game is mental. A lot of it is technique. I've had to learn the hard way. Lord's will, I'll get the technique down and be productive."
