The last 365 days in New York sports were nothing if not entertaining.

In The Bronx, Aaron Judge re-wrote home run history in the American League, while Steve Cohen quickly established his team in Queens as a major player for the foreseeable future. Brian Daboll arrived, and the Giants subsequently burst onto the scene in the NFC. Jalen Brunson elevated the Knicks, while Kyrie Irving nearly did the opposite for the Nets.

With all of that (and a lot more) having happened in 2022, what could this upcoming year possibly bring to the table?

With a new year comes new expectations, and a number of teams in New York have incredibly high expectations heading into 2023. We're here to set the bar even higher.

To put these predictions together, we examined each team individually. We took a look at what each franchise was able to accomplish in 2022, and estimated their trajectory for the 2023 calendar year.
