money than the Knicks.... what u are not mentioning is how well Afflalo
perfomance would become hooking back-up with Billups & Melo to advance
to the ECF.
Whatever Afflalo could get now in a 5 year contract would practically
be doubled next offseason in a 5 to 6 year contract.
Brooks is a great substitute vet-guard to have on the roster incase of injuries,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
plus Brooks will learn alot from player/coach/leader PG-Billups in one season
than he learned throughout his career in the NBA.
As for the huge egotistical players in the NBA u cant go any hire than
Melo & Amare when it comes to poor service on the defensive-end
of the court.
This is why the Knicks have to select "Kenneth Faried" with the 17th pick
in the draft to add a consistent defensive-rebounder on the roster the
team could depend on each game. Having well rounded college defensive-
players on the roster in "PG-TD, SG-Fields, SF/PF-Faried, and C/PF-Turiaf"
scrambling on the defensive-end of the court gives the Knicks an edge....
Firing the Damnphony-brothers as coaches will give the Knicks a double-
edge sword on defense.
