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

3. Egos

With so many players used to starting, finishing or playing heavy minutes if guys don’t accept their roles it could lead to disharmony.
