    Question Mark Who do you want taking the final shot Billups Carmelo Or Amare???

    I was watching the Mike D show yesterday and this question was asked He said he will always put the ball in Billups hands and let him make the decision... makes since because this a point guard centric offensive but if you were the coach who would you give it to? I never knew Amare was clutch until he got to the knicks but i personally would give it to Melo he has always shown he as that innate clutch gene...just wish he would stop driving to the lane and just pop for a mid range jumper

    Mr. Big Shot Billups. Either he'll make the game-winning shot or make the pass that leads to it.

    Sons of Thunder took the words right out of my mouth. Well played man.

    This is nothing like the Miami situation. Wade is the only real closer they have. Bosh is no where near being a closer & LeBron fails under 10 seconds time & time again. This is a great problem to have, because all 3 are proven closers. Amare really came on strong as a potential closer this season as our leader. If ONLY there were .2 of a second left on the clock... Amare would have closed out the Celtics with the game winning 3. Also hit a huge 3 for us last night. As far as iso goes? I want the rock in Carmelo's hands all day.

    Chauncey. I'll rely on him 100% whether he hits it or dishes.

    I wouldn't doubt 'Melo either in winning a game for us, everyone is saying he can't finish after the Offensive Foul last night- But the stats actually show that he is the most clutch player over the last couple of years when it comes to nailing game winning shots.

    Either Chauncey or Melo I am confident with.

    Billups ! He has experience and has the patience and experience to be calm enough to take those big shots..He has a ring something that none of these guys have.

    I wouldnt mind any of the Big 3 having the ball in they're hands in the final seconds. Depending on matchups, whichs make our offense so versatile. 9 time out of 10 just let billups run the play, he's probably gonna get it to melo

    I just want the ball in Billups' hands. He'll know what to do with it.

    Just heard on the radio the other day and they claim that Mello has the highest shooting percentage in the nba with less than 24seconds left in the game at 47%

    i hate the media their full of **** always looking for bull**** stats, theories and stories. Jordan didnt hit every game winner he took, im sure he had a few turnovers final seconds, charges final seconds etc. Melo is probably the best clutch performer of this era he had 6 game winners in ONE SEASON! thats something, for me personally i look for melo everytime for that final shot. either him or billups but as far as PG's go theres no other pg i'd trust with the ball in his hands in the final 2 minutes other than Billups

    Give Billups the ball and trust him, whether he takes the shot or passes it to Melo. There are stats to back up that Melo is the best clutch player in the NBA (go look it up if you don't believe me) and Chauncey...well, look what he's done for Detroit and Denver.

    I'd want Billups to have the ball in his hands @ the end of a game. Depending on what kind of night he or Melo is having, I'd want either of the two to take the last shot.

    This is why we brought melo in to do this abviously he isnt shhoting well right now but soon when he doesnt care about the MSG media/ crowd on his every move and feels like he owns the garden we will see him demand for the ball and take games over.

    Melo has more buzzer beating shots than anyone in the NBA since he was drafted in '03. I'll take him or Billups shooting the game winner, but there's no legit argument against either.
