The Knicks don't need a "scoring SG" when they have two of the NBA's top 5 scorers in Amare & Carmelo. With the team the Knicks have, the PG is much more important than the SG position. Billups is the QB of our offense, he's our "coach" running the PG position.
Fields is also everything the Knicks could have dreamed for as our 2G. Steal of the draft. Fields has been the most productive Knicks rookie since god know when. What a special feeling it was, watching Fields play with the top rookies & sophmores during the Rookie-Sophmore All-Star game. Fields can score too. Has a nice stroke from long distance, can drive to the hole, can finish @ the rim with an athletic drive or slam... But most importantly? He's a championship type of talent. Doesn't need "the ball" to make an impact. Great off the player. Already one of (if not the best) rebounding Guards in the game today. Fields also has outstanding defense & hustle. Our best peremeter defender. Kids basketball IQ is through the roof. Injury prone Azu who? lol
