    Nyk Logo Should the Knicks sign Jerome Jordan to the 2011-12 season?

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Don't worry we already have a center.

    After the 2010 summer league games 44th pick Jerome Jordan showed to be a better prospect to keep than the 37th pick Rautins. If the Knicks wouldve signed C-Jerome Jordan (rather than Rautins), then signed veteran FA Kurt Thomas (rather than Mason Jr.) for veteran bigman leadership-insurance... Amare wouldve had alot of bigman help from veteran leadership Kurt Thomas & Turiaf to help develope (rookie-centers) Jordan & Mozgov into forefilling certain bigmen roles off of the bench.
    The Knicks having the "above" 5 bigmen players on the roster in their daily practice last season, I'm sure "AR, Gallo, and W.Chandler" wouldve held down the SF-rotation by adding scoring/rebounds/and shotblocking.

    The Knicks chase on the 2011 February deadline wouldve been for a scoring-SG (to replace a season injury Azu).....not a high price scoring SF (Carmelo) that gives us the same-exact-skillz in our rotation we were getting from two young unexpensive SF (Gallo & W.Chandler).
    The Knicks also overlook using SG-Walker as a starter (and 20 mpg SG) vs certain oponents to build Walker's confidence and chemistry with the starting-unit and bench-unit.
    Rookie Landry Fields great performance shouldve only started 40 to 50 games (averaging 28 mpg) this past season to take alot of pressure off of Fields back from hitting the rookie wall at the 360 roster change.

    Our coaching and transactions during the 2010-11 regular season leaves our roster at a need for 3 of the college prospects in the 2011-draft-class (SG-Marshon Brooks, SF-Kenneth Faried, and PF-Jordan Williams or PF-Jeremy Tylor), plus we have to sign our 44th pick C-Jerome Jordan from the 2010-draft-class for the 2011-12 season.

    F-Kenneth Faried hustling-potential will give the Knicks a much better grinding performance on offense/defense in the paint than Shawn Williams. Plus Faried skills could be the prime backup or tandem partner for either Amare or Melo by crashing the boards for the defensive-rebounds while protecting the paint from oponents inside scoring.
    Dennis Rodman had to personally give Kenneth Faried big-ups & props for being the only college player in decades to define Rodman's type of above the rim rebounding while protecting the paint area. Top-10 pick

    SG-Marshon Brooks offense would fit well to take loads of pressure off of PG-Toney Douglas having a scoring-SG option in the backcourt under Chuancy Billups halfcourt style setting.

    C-Jerome Jordan & PF-Jordan Williams short playingtime minutes would take alot of pressure off of Amare by letting Amare rest throughout the first 3 quarters of each regular season game, especially the back to back games.

    P.S. The Knicks having PG-Rautins under-contract for 2011-12 season puts a "stop" to drafting PG-Selby or 6.2 combo-Jimmers.

    Unhappy

    These FA players would except the minimum contract to play alongside of Amare/ Melo/and Billups.

    Guards:
    SG-Jermain Taylor, SG-Affalo, PG-Brooks, PG-Ishmeal Smith
    Bigmen: C/F-DJ Mbenga, PF-Sean Williams, PF-Joey Dorsey

    There are some potential unexpensive FA on the market in this 2011-offseason....but do the Knicks have the coaching-staff to develope these FA to the next-level of their NBA B.Ball skills to fit into the Knicks-Big-3?
    HELL NO!

    There is not a chance in the world Affalo would accept a minimum contract, and you obviously haven't seen DJ Mbenga play, he's even worse than Jeffries. Also why would you want Brooks? He's worse than TD and he's a headcase when he hasn't proved anything in the league. The only players I wouldn't mind is Sean Williams and Dorsey (minimum contract).

    Affalo would be a STARTER on Billups winning Knicks team.....so Affalo
    would have no problems accepting the minimum for a one year contract.

    The right coaching-staff would show DJ Mbenga and Sean Williams how
    to gain their NBA reputation by cleaning the glass, shotblocking, and
    screening for Amare & Melo.

    Brooks is a dynamic offensive combo-guard and TD is a dynamic defensive
    combo-guard that PG-Billups could use both of their energy off the bench
    to WIN.

    Do you know how many teams want Afflalo? If he wanted to be on a winning team he could just join the Bulls who desperately need an SG or he can just join Miami, I love how your just assuming that Afflalo will accept a minimum when he can just join teams like Dallas, Chicago, Miami. Trust me I would love to have Afflalo but I just don't see it happening.

    We don't need offense we need DEFENSE. Did you watch the Knicks this season? We don't need a player like Brooks at all, the last thing we need is a player with a huge ego that doesn't play defense. TD is better than Brooks, better character, way better defender, and a better scorer. If TD played on the Rockets he could average 19 PPG as well.

    Default yesh kiya

    si. signing our 7' center should be a priority; it's a no-brainer.
    just like our coach.
    if a defensive ass't coach materializes, maybe he'll know what to do with him.
    we can only hope and pray.
    damntoni.

    Yes. Absolutely. Unless we use him as a chip in a trade to obtain a 2nd 1st rounder.

    This is where I have to disagree with you. Melo is high priced yes, but there is no question that Melo does things that Chandler or Gallo will never achieve. Melo is virtually unstoppable when he's locked in, plus he has that killer instinct mentality that only a few have.

    On the offensive-end of the court u are 100% right on Carmelo being
    an unstoppable assassin....but on the defensive-end of the court
    Carmelo performance is a Poodle vs Pit-Bull towards the 3 season jellin
    of Chandler & Gallo. u have to admitt the two ex-Knicks players became
    efficient "stoppers" when defending the SF & SG position this season.
    They even did well defending the PF & SF positions during our streaks
    this season. And yes I was suprise at how well their chemistry complimented
    each other performance when Amare was resting on the bench.

    I dont know man
    comparing gallo and chandler to melo is insane in my opinion.


    WE lose by 20 in game two if we have gallo and chandler instead of melo dropping 42-17.


    on gallo and chandlers best nights

    they would combine for 42-17

    melo did this by himself, that shows his potentially being 26 years old and not fully in his prime yet.


    Melo is a top 5 player in the league, and has been for years, and people are too stupid to realize it.


    he played kobe shot for shot in the WCF just 3 years ago, and only lost that season because JR smith is a moron and the Lakers well... they are the lakers.



    I cant see a Carmelo anthony lead nuggets team, going out in 5 games the way the Nuggets with gallo and chandler did in the first round this year.


    with a full training camp, improved chemistry, as well as some added pieces, melo will lead us to 55 wins this year, and we will be the 2nd seed in the east behind the heat.



    watch and learn
