After the Melo trade so many things changed in the Knicks rotation....
Mason Jr. was taking out of the November DNP doghouse, and Walker
was put into the DNP doghouse. TD was no-longer Fields backup, Mason Jr.
became Fields backup. We no longer had a 40+ minute per game PG in
(Felton, Duhon, or Marbury), so Toney Douglas got his first chance to lead
the Knicks at the "point-guard" spot for more than 3 minutes straight. It was
Toney Douglas first time to lead the point for 8 straight minutes in the regular
season as a Knicks guard......thanks to the Melo-trade TD got his first
chance to develope his skills as a NBA PG. Such happiness on a sore shoulder
made TD PG skillz inconsistent within those final 36 games vs oponents
experience backcourt tandems.
Landry Fields and Toney Douglas graded a B in teammate-talent as first
and second season-players in their 86 and 85 games lastseason.
They werent great but they added to some great moments throughout
