If you were to predict where teams in the East and West conferences would fall during the NBA’s postseason, it would be quite the challenge.

However, for Tyson Chandler of the New York Knicks, he’s already got his sights set on one specific seed in the Eastern conference.

From ESPN,

“Obviously, we didn’t come in expecting to put ourselves in this situation. But … I feel like it’s still wide open,” Tyson Chandler said. “I looked at the standings today and I feel like we’ve got a real opportunity to kind of shoot up to that third spot or so and try to get ourselves in the mix.”

Well that seems like a bit of a stretch at the moment. The Knicks are currently one game out of eighth place in the Eastern conference, and are six games out of first place of the Atlantic division, which is held by the Toronto Raptors.

You be the judge; where will the Knicks land if the postseason, if they make it at all? Leave a comment below.
