    Default So now that we have a popular starting five being discussed, let's strictly discuss..

    our bench! Let's have some fun with this.

    PG-Anthony Carter
    SG-Landry Fields
    SF-Shawne Williams
    PF-Jared Jeffries
    C-Jordan/Jorts

    With Shumpert getting some minutes, hopefully earning more.

    You're starting Douglas over Fields, presumably.

    I'd stick with Landry for the initial part of the season. Unless, of course, Douglas comes out of rehab rejuvenated and as tenacious defensively as he was at the start of last season.

    Ty Chan (I like that, sounds like a Kung Fu bad guy), STAT, Melo and Fields on the glass is a hot prospect. Could we possibly go from glass cleaning woes to glass cleaning pros in one foul swoop?

    I bet we could!

    I love this team

    I mean my ideal situation is

    Trading Douglas and Turiaf for DJ Augustine

    Signing Jason Richardson for the MLE

    Re-Sign Shawne Williams

    Bring Over Jerome Jordan

    Signing Carlos Arroyo for the minimum

    Starting 5
    G- Augustine
    G- Richardson
    F- Anthony
    F- Stoudemire
    C- Chandler

    Bench
    G- Shumpert
    C- Jordan
    G- Fields
    F- Williams
    G- Arroyo
    C- Harrelson
    F- Jeffries

    with Rautins/Walker/Balkman/Brown becomin expendable

    Bring back Williams his shooting can really help in certain situations and off the bench.


    Douglas( big year coming )
    Fields( improved )
    Williams
    Shumpert( gonna be a surprise to many )
    Jordan( defensive big for bench )
    Jeffries

    Walker/Rautins etc.

    this bench is still pretty solid y'all

    *facepalm* I forgot about Douglas, I was thinking a vet like Hill to be the starter. We'll see how Douglas plays, he was on and off a few times, but he's got heart. Shumpert has got some earning to do. What about moving Fields to the 3 and leaving room for Shumpert?

    lol On the bench? Fields will obviously be on the bench, as will Douglas, if we get Hill or a vet. of his caliber.

    Well Carmelo could have his "own" squad that way and drive other benches in the league nuts.

    My dream bench would be:
    Toney Douglas
    Landry Fields
    Shawne or Sean Williams
    Kurt Thomas
    Jordan

    Balkman and Jefferies are the definition of scrubs

    I dont know if that 's possible but it sure looks like a sweet 2nd unit to me!

    Toney and Landry are our startes at #1 and #2 in the upcoming season. Thomas isn't even interested in Knicks and D'Antoni said he likes Harrellson and isn't even sure we'll keep Jordan...

    anthony carter signed with the Raptors...

    The lineup would be

    Pg- Bibby/Shumpert
    sg- Shumpert/Walker
    sf- Williams
    PF-Jeffries/ Jorts
    C-Jordan/Jorts

    Yea I know toney n landry are starting but when we work out a situation where our starting 1 and 2 are better and those 2 are our backups we'll be stacked. I hope josh works out but he either needs to lose weight or gain muscle plus how tall is he wont we still need a backup C?

    Default Starting Five and Bench as of 10/12/11

    As 2-game preseason starts in a few days, and Knicks have 12 players
    under contract, here what starting five/bench should look like, assuming
    Jerome Jordan and Extra E are signed:

    PG Toney Defense/The Bib
    SG Laundry Folds/ I-man Sherbert
    SF Melo/Extra E/SkyWalker
    PF STAT/Jorts/Girafferies
    C Chanhandler/JerJor

    benchwarmer: Balkmania

    if by some miracle Crawful comes back into the fold, he'll be starting SG.
    If Extra E doesn't sign, 6'9" euro dudes we got in Chandler deal could fill
    bench, but I assume Glenwald is trying hard to bolster PG, SG, SF positions
    with "room exception".

    at PF and C we're looking good, as all PF can play C, especially Giraffries
    with his neckface defense...

    to be continued...

    Is there any chance the knicks could take on Rudy Fernadez contract by sending the Mavs walker and using the remainder of the rautins TPE? The rumor is the mavs want to move him to probably make a bid for dwight now.

    Fields could start and rudy has shown he can be an ok backup SG.
