1. Health

Amar’e Stoudemire already is out and the Knicks are the oldest team in NBA history, so whether they can hold up for a full season and what they hope is a long playoff run is a big question.

2. Chemistry

Carmelo Anthony and Stoudemire haven’t shown they can work well together, and training camp injuries prevented the Knicks from spending a lot of time meshing.

3. Egos
