    Default DeShawn Stevenson?

    I don't like his attitude and he could be a problem in the locker room.

    But this guy is a very solid defender and shoots the three-ball at a very high clip. With the Mavs acquiring Fernandez, I think he is available.

    Plus, he's got beef with LeBron!

    Thoughts?

    Stevenson, like Dahntay Jones, are 2 players we have to look at. I would prefer free agent Shane Battier. He's made a ton of cash in his career. Maybe he would welcome the opportunity to play in NY. If we're looking at a Lebron Stopper... These 3 would be at the top of my list.

    LOVE this guy.


    The LeBron feud would make this pickup even more awesome.

    Out of the three, I would still take Stevenson. Dahntay Jones' shooting is horrible and Battier's D has been slipping off a bit.

    Stevenson is the best 3-pt shooter out of the three.

    Sign Stevenson, Kurt Thomas and either Kwame Brown or Joel Pryzbilla. Suddenly our defense wont be so bad.

    Turiaf/Thomas, Shumpert and Stevenson can harrass Bosh, Wade & Lebron while Carmelo and Stoudemire handle the scoring.

    This move made solely for the playoffs. PLUS, he should do well on Pierce as well.

    I should have remembered to post this before the Finals.

    Oh well... Since we're talking about DeShawn Stevenson.

    he is a bit of a head case, vocal, and defenseively strong. Has a good shot but could be a distraction off the court. Might also work as a scape goat for the media to latch too so they don't have to be in Amar'e and Melo's face all the time.

    The lebron rivalry does make him more appealing but if it is between him and Battier, I'll take battier any day.

    This is all you need to know about Stevenson... the "salary-dump throw-in' in the Butler-Haywood trade:

    When Roddy B. returned from his practically season-long foot injury, DAL tried to get the young kid going for the post season. Coach removed DS from the starting lineup (even though his presence help propel DAL to such a blazing hot start)... DAL was losing games attempting this experiment and Roddy B. was awful.

    STEVENSON didn't say beep. He didn't complain, bicker, make a stink... ANYTHING. Just played his part.

    It was actually the vet players (Dirk, Marion, Kidd) who went to coach adn asked that DS be put back in the starting 5!

    And... in the playoffs... when coach removed him from the starting 5, and replaced him with JJ B... AGAIN... he said nada. And when he was called upon, he was money.

    While JJ, Terry & Kidd were cold... he was raining 3s.

    I would say he would be a good fit.

    1- He gets the chance to battle Lebron again.
    2- He gets the stage of NYC
    3- He has minutes and a chance to start at SG

    I dont think some team will blow him away with a multi-year deal, so we might be able to grab him on a 1-2 year deal for a cheap price.

    PLAY DEFENSE, hit 3s and stay out of trouble.

    TO ME, if we go cheap and want to wait for 2012 free agency... Knicks must sign Kurt Thomas and Deshaun Stevenson.

    How would you rate our chances of landing "$oulja Boy" from 1-5, with 5 being the lowest?

    Exactly what I was thinking: Kwame, Stevenson, and Kurt. As well as getting Lawrence Frank as Assistant. Cant Wait

    C-Kwame
    PF-Amare
    SF-Melo
    SG-Stevenson
    PG-Billups

    Bench:

    Fields
    Shumpert
    Douglas
    Kurt Thomas
    Shawne Williams
    Harrelson
    Turiaf

    D-League:
    Rautins
    Jerome Jordan

    Love this lineup

    Love this lineup
    Plus... we might even get away with a Turiaf-Walker-Balkman deal for Jeff Foster & Josh McRoberts. Just load up on size... If we're concerned about Turiaf and his inability to stay healthy.

    Since we want to run and play at a high-octane pace... Just rotate Kwame-Foster, along with Thomas-McRoberts.

    We could play BIG if we want with a Billups-Carmelo-Amar'e-McRoberts/Thomas-Brown/Foster lineup.

    ESPECIALLY if we don't think Jordan-Harrellson are ready yet.
