Are we encouraged or discouraged?

Through the first 8 games the Knicks sit at 3-5. This should not be that much of a surprise considering the most optimistic of predictions had the Knicks at 41-41 and the early schedule has featured several good teams.

The WoW wins produced statistic has the Knicks producing 3.5 wins, so the team is roughly in line with where the should be at this point. The Knicks right now are at a crossroads with where the are going. You have players like Amare Stoudemire producing -.1 wins for the season, that surely won't continue as he definitely will be a productful player. On the other end of the spectrum, Wilson Chandler and Toney Douglas had torrid starts that have come back down and Ronny Turiaf will surely see his production decline.

A good coaching decision was made in putting Mozgov on the bench, you CANNOT be a center in this league and not get any rebounds. So here the Knicks sit at 3-5, and I don't know whether or not to be encouraged or discouraged.
