Former Knicks president Donnie Walsh, back at his old haunt, said yesterday he feels they have a legit shot to knock off the Heat and believes his 2011 trade for Carmelo Anthony has been justified.

“I think they’d give them a helluva series,’’ said Walsh, the Pacers’ president. “Miami and New York, I couldn’t pick it.’’

The Knicks locked up the second seed yesterday with a 90-80 Garden victory over Indiana. The No. 3 Pacers and Knicks are lined up to meet in the second round and, ironically, Anthony may come back to bite him.

Walsh was struck yesterday when he saw Anthony in person.

“His body is in super shape,’’ Walsh said. “That’s the only thing he had to improve. He could do everything else. You could see him on TV. But when you use him in person he’s slim. I haven’t seen him like that before. It’s showing.’’

Walsh was pilloried in some circles for giving up so many a.ssets for Anthony in the February 2011 deal with Denver, including Danilo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler and Timofey Mozgov. It took a while for the Knicks to build back their depth after the deal.

“The blogs ripped it apart because we gave up a lot of players,’’ Walsh said. “I know I said to you guys, ‘I think this guy is so good you’re never going to get a chance to get a guy like this.’ As much as I didn’t want to give up the players we did, I thought we should do it.’’

The Anthony deal finally has paid off in his first full 82-game season as a Knick.

“He’s got better players around him now,’’ Walsh said. “He’s got a lot of veterans, real savvy guys. He has a lot of size. I love the way they’re playing. I love the way we’re playing. But I think they have a legitimate shot.

“He understands he’ll get double-teamed and the thing I always knew he could do — defend rebound, pass — he’s doing those things,’’ Walsh said.

Walsh also is responsible for Amar’e Stoudemire’s five-year, $100 million uninsured contract. Stoudemire played just 29 games this regular season and it’s unclear when he’ll return during the playoffs following his second knee debridement surgery this season.

Walsh knew the risk.

“When you do a deal like that, you are aware he may not make it,’’ he said. “I don’t think Amar’e is breaking down because he works so hard.’’

Walsh, 72, said yesterday he isn’t sure he will be back next season. He said he only stepped in because Larry Bird needed a break.

“I took this job because Larry wanted a year off,” Walsh said. “If Larry wants to come back, I’m out.’’ I’m leaving. If he doesn’t I don’t know what I’ll do.”

Mahoney from Police Academy & John Legends lovechild aka bi*ch Boy Broussard

He averaged fewer than 7 points a game in last year's world championships and was the 36th player selected in last summer's N.B.A. draft, yet Milos Vujanic of Serbia is being hyped as a potential star.

Some pundits on sports radio have penciled him in as the Knicks' starting point guard next season, fans on Internet chat boards are saying he would be a lottery pick if he were in this year's draft, and the Sacramento Kings center, Vlade Divac, the president of Vujanic's Euro League team, recently called him ''the steal of the draft'' and a ''great, great player, a true winner.''

So have the Knicks really found their point guard of the future, their first premier player at that position since Mark Jackson was an All-Star in 1989?

Opinions vary. All who have seen the 22-year-old Vujanic believe he will be a good N.B.A. player, but they disagree on when he will be ready to start, how good he can actually become, and even whether he is more of a scorer or a distributor.

The NBA announced this afternoon that Carmelo Anthony has won his second straight Eastern Conference Player of the Week honor:

He led the Eastern Conference in scoring (32.0 ppg) and ranked seventh in rebounding (11.5 rpg). Anthony extended a streak he began last week of consecutive games with 30-plus points to seven which tied the second longest such streak in Knicks history, before having it snapped on April 14 during New York's 90-80 victory over the Indiana Pacers. Anthony tallied 36 points and pulled down a season-high 19 rebounds during a 118-111 overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls on April 11.

Melo is being rewarded for continuing his extraordinary play to end the season. He's been a driving force behind locking up the 2 seed in the Eastern Conference, and will now rest tonight -- and possibly during Wednesday's season finale against Atlanta -- before leading his team into the playoffs against the Celtics.

This, of course, is the third week in a row that a Knick has received the honor, with J.R. Smith winning it before Anthony won it last week.

as far as a big, next season i keep hearing NYK will make a run for him to return but Denver keeps saying they'll match any offer (makes no sense of them since they have two bigs and Mosgov is number 3 on the depth and gets little to no play )

The pain don't lie, either. Rasheed promised Woodson he would make an effort, but reality always loomed. More:

"Rasheed has given this team everything he had," Mike Woodson said in a statement when the team announced Wallace had decided to retire. "He is a winner, true professional and a leader on and off the court.

"Due to his injury, he will not be available to play for us during the playoffs. We owe this season's success to veterans like Rasheed."

Woodson, who as an a.ssistant coach with the Pistons won a championship in 2004 with Wallace, convinced Sheed this summer to come back to the NBA after a two-year hiatus.

Wallace gave the Knicks a huge unexpected boost early in the season, but he suffered a stress fracture in his left foot in mid-December and that was the end. Wallace initially gave the injury two months to heal before he agreed to have surgery in early March.

To the surprise of many, he was running last weekend with the intention to return for the first round of the playoffs. He played Monday in Charlotte for the first time since mid-December and lasted 3:50 before he started feeling soreness in the foot.

His NBA career ended in North Carolina, where he starred in college and still resides in the offseason.

The Knicks now have an open roster spot and there is time to add another body, if they can find one available.

Do they need to sign another big man for the playoffs or do they have enough with Tyson Chandler, Kenyon Martin and Marcus Camby?

To the bitter end, to the regular season’s final day, the Knicks continued to break down and finagle with their 15-man roster.

Rasheed Wallace retired, the Knicks signed center Earl Barron and starting guard Pablo Prigioni sprained his right ankle in the second quarter of Wednesday night’s 98-92 victory over the Hawks, leaving the arena on crutches, according to a source.

Iman Shumpert had a knee scare, leaving the game in the fourth quarter, but it turned out to be a cramp. Chris Copeland had his shoulder pop out and it had to be popped back in. Prigioni’s injury is the only one deemed serious and coach Mike Woodson said he “did not know’’ if the point guard will be ready for the start of the playoffs Saturday. Prigioni’s insertion into the starting lineup coincided with the Knicks 13-0 winning streak.

The Knicks are crossing every “t” and dotting every “i” in bracing for a long championship run that begins Saturday at 3 p.m. against the Celtics at the Garden, but that still may not be enough. Their injury-wracked yet wildly successful regular season ended with a 54-28 record after a meaningless victory over Atlanta to finish with their best record since 1996-97.

Ready, set, here the Knicks go into the playoffs with the best chance at a title since 1999, hoping to win their first playoff series since 2001.

“The sky’s the limit,’’ Kenyon Martin said. “I’m excited for this bunch. We got a legitimate shot. I just know what’s in these guys’ hearts. We know what we can be. We’re not afraid of anybody. That’s what it’s all about. We’re confident, but not overconfident.’’

There was hope Wallace could become the pleasant surprise of the playoffs — a dozen minutes off the bench, providing team defense, length and a 3-point shot here and there. He returned early from foot surgery, lasted 3:50 in Charlotte on Monday in his first game back since mid-December. He left with a sore foot, so painful he decided to hang up his walking boot yesterday.

“He was a big reason we got off to a great start,’’ Woodson said.

“It’s going to be a loss not having him around. I was a little shocked. When you’ve played a number of years in this league, you know there comes a time you can’t answer the bell anymore.’’

“[The foot] just wasn’t right — he felt that way after the [Charlotte] game,’’ Woodson added.

After Wallace’s retirement announcement, the club made its second signing in successive days by inking Barron, a former Knick, who had 11 points and 18 rebounds last night in 36:30.

Ex-Knick swingman Quentin Richardson was signed Tuesday to be one more perimeter defender to help fend off Miami’s tandem of Dwyane Wade and LeBron James — and perhaps Paul Pierce. His offensive debut last night was pitiful (1-of-11, 0-of-6 from 3-point line).

Martin was the first of the insurance moves in late February. In the final five days of the regular season, the Knicks cut two players, signed three players and saw one retire. Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald has sought to ensure the team can withstand injuries that have been the season’s subplot. (On Friday, they waived injured Kurt Thomas to sign center Solomon Jones, but they cut Jones after two games when he was ineffective.)

Last week, Woodson said the club is “desperate’’ to win a championship this season. The window for a championship is small — this season and next.

“I don’t think you put a team in position to win a division and have the second-best record in the East if you’re not serious,’’ Woodson said. “I don’t know how much we’ll play Q or Earl Barron, but I just didn’t want to get caught like we were in the playoffs last year [vs. Miami] where we were so shorthanded when guys started to drop.’’

The Knicks rested Carmelo Anthony, Raymond Felton, J.R. Smith, Jason Kidd, Tyson Chandler and Martin last night, yet still couldn’t escape unscathed with Prigioni rolling his ankle on a drive and departing. Chandler and Martin have been out six and five games, respectively, and will be back Saturday. This is it — no more signings allowed.

Quentin Richardson, back with the #Knicks, with a perspective on the difference between now and then. More:

Richardson spoke in reference to his first stint as a Knick (2005-08) as "we"; and that "we" he admitted "didn't do that well."

The atmosphere around the team and at the Garden is much different than those days.

"But when we played all right, it got crazy," he added. "So now -- I've always been watching -- it's at the level it needs to be."

Richardson doesn't expect to see a lot of activity, but after spending the entire season without a team and working out on his own, he's happy to take a salary and a per diem to be part of a potential championship run.

The timing couldn't be more perfect, with his arch rival, Paul Pierce, up first.

"I don't know how much I'll get to play against him," Richardson said. "I'm new, I'm just excited to be part of it. Anything I can do to help, I'm going to go out there and give it my all."

The New York Knicks understood this was never going to be easy, no matter what the division standings reported about the state of the Boston Celtics. The Knicks understood that Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce would not surrender to age and gravity without a f!ght, and that Doc Rivers had coached all season just to get his diminished team to this point.

These are the Celtics after all, a franchise that has claimed 17 NBA titles and a team that won't be underestimated by an opponent that has claimed a grand total of two.

But now the Celtics aren't only a 7-seed with proud, graying stars hoping that muscle memory carries them into May and beyond. Monday, bloody Monday changed everything for every Boston institution. Just as the nation embraced baseball's most decorated franchise, the Yankees, after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, fans everywhere will be pulling for basketball's decorated franchise to make the kind of charmed postseason run the Yanks made in 2001.

So the 54-28 Knicks no longer have to beat a 41-40 team. In the wake of the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon, they have to beat America's Team, too.

Hating the Celtics and their banners and their parquet used to come naturally; they'd taken five consecutive titles in an Atlantic Division the Knicks hadn't won -- until this season -- since 1993-94. An incorrigible trash talker, Garnett was one of the least likable stars in the league long before his foul mouth compelled Carmelo Anthony to chase him all the way out to the team bus.

Summoning that same emotion for the opposing team and star might take some extra work this time around. Wearing black stripes on their left shoulders in memory of the dead and injured, the Celtics represent a great city that is hurting badly, and one that could sure use a spiritual boost from an underdog sports team expected to go one-and-done.

Rivers, who lives near the site of Monday's bombings, said the attack would not "stop the spirit of Boston." That spirit could inspire the Celtics to a much higher level of play than they maintained in the regular season, when Rajon Rondo's injury and Ray Allen's exit and Garnett's aches and pains didn't keep them from falling out of the playoffs altogether.

"It's going to be a very difficult series for the Knicks," Willis Reed, their old captain, said from his Louisiana home. "Obviously everybody has a lot of sympathy for the people of Boston, and you just can't understand why something like that has to happen. I'm sure a lot of people are going to be rooting for the Celtics to win this series.

"But despite the emotions involved and no matter how hard people root for Garnett and Pierce, it's going to come down to the players on the floor. Making shots and playing great basketball and playing together will be bigger factors than anything else. I still think these games will be won on the court."

And on the court, all things being equal, the Knicks should win the series. Their scoring champ, Anthony, is healthy and in his prime and playing the best basketball of his career. Melo and home-court advantage should be enough to advance to Round 2.

But again, the Boston Celtics aren't the Atlanta Hawks. "The Knicks probably have a little more talent," said Reed, who watches them regularly on League Pass, "but I think it's a great series that goes seven games, a series that probably hinges on which team is healthiest.

"I like Garnett, I like Pierce, and I really admire Doc, and you always have that Celtic pride. But I would be really disappointed if the Knicks lost, and I'm sure the players and management would feel the same way. The Knicks should win this series, but it won't be without some heartburn."

Reed allowed himself a gentle laugh over the phone as he took a break from mowing his grass around the ponds and woods on his vast property in Ruston, La. He grew up wanting to be a Celtic and idolizing a fellow left-handed big man from Louisiana, Bill Russell, who would retire in 1969 after beating Reed's Knicks and then Wilt Chamberlain's Lakers for his 11th title.

Reed hobbled into his first championship the following season, missed the Knicks' victory over Boston in the 1972 conference final with a knee injury, and returned in '73 to beat the Celtics in seven and the Lakers in five for the franchise's second and last league crown.

The Knicks were engaged in fierce rivalries with Baltimore and L.A. back then, but Boston was different. When it comes to New York teams, Boston is always different. Red Holzman told friends the loss in '69 to the Celtics, after Walt Frazier suffered a groin injury, marked the biggest disappointment of his Hall of Fame career.

"It was an intense rivalry," Reed said, "and we wanted to be the elite team they had been. In order for us to do anything good we had to go by the Celtics to get that done, and something always happened when we played a big game in Boston.

"Once our bus driver got lost on the ride from the hotel to the Boston Garden, and Red thought Red Auerbach had it set up. Every time up there we were moved to a different room, and if one was too hot the other was too cold. It was always something to try to distract you. The Boston Garden was not a place where you wanted to play."

Reed recalled Bill Bradley, pacifist, nearly coming to blows with the Celtics' Don Nelson before Game 7 of the conference final in '73. "Bill didn't have a f!ght his whole career," Reed said, "but he really caused a ruckus that time in Boston.

"But both teams had a lot of respect for each other. I'd go to John Havlicek's fishing tournament every year, and Sam Jones and K.C. Jones were good friends. We all competed hard, but the respect was always there."

In fact, starting Saturday at Madison Square Garden, a respectful, competitive series between the Knicks and Celtics would be an angle worth rooting for. Two great sports towns, New York and Boston, are bonded by separate attacks on their way of life launched about a dozen years apart. So you have Yankees fans singing "Sweet Caroline" in the Bronx after a marathon tragedy that will travel up and down I-95 with this series for the full seven games.

Knicks coach Mike Woodson said he expects Boston fans to "rally around" the playoff team representing their battered town. Reed, the childhood Celtics fan who grew into a Knicks legend, said the latest chapter in this rivalry will produce a series that the favored team "won't be able to hide from."

No, the Knicks aren't only up against Celtics mystique in the first round. They're up against America's Team, too, and nothing will be easy about it.

Quentin Richardson has a trash-talking history with Paul Pierce and a good resume against LeBron James, especially in his first stint as a Knick.

Richardson, 33, knows he’s here for defense — not his 3-point shot.

He returned for his second stint with the Knicks (2005-09), but hadn’t played since last season with Orlando. He looked light and in shape but his debut was rocky, shooting 1 of 11 (0 of 6 from the 3-point line) in 28:55 of action.

“The one thing I know about this team is they got enough offense,’’ Richardson said before the game. He played extended minutes as Mike Woodson rested his starters.

“I don’t know how much I’ll play, but whatever happens, my first mindset is to be a defensive stopper. We have Carmelo (Anthony), who leads the league in scoring. My first mindset is to play defense.”

Asked about his days defending LeBron when he played for the Knicks, Richardson said, “I do have experience playing against him, that possibly could have factored into it. But if we make it that far, and we get to play them, then I’m up for the challenge.”

* Kenyon Martin won’t put a percentage on his sprained ankle but he said that won’t matter. He will be active on Saturday for Game 1 against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. He tested it for the first time in running drills yesterday.

“Whatever it is, I’m playing. It don’t matter, you could put a percentage in the paper if you want, but I’m going to play,’’ Martin said. “This is the time of year injuries really don’t matter, especially for me. That’s when I show up and show out. This is what I made my name and money on.”

Martin said the pain after spraining his ankle against the Wizards eight days ago was akin to when he tore his ACL while he was a senior at Cincinnati in 2000.

“I wasn’t in that much pain when I did that,’’ Martin said. “The worst thing went through my mind. X-rays were negative. It was a huge relief. When I was hitting the floor, it wasn’t just an act. I was in dire pain.’’

* Coach Mike Woodson on playing in Boston next week amid the Boston Marathon bombing:

“It’s a sad time in Boston. My prayers go out to the victims. Boston has always been a sports town. They’ll rally around and try to figure it out. It’s going to be a tough, hostile environment anyway. They have great fans.’’
