    Default Jose Juan Barea


    H: 5' 11"

    Barea is special. Not an atheletic freak or a lights out shooter, but has a high motor, basketball IQ, a combination of elusiveness and speed. Very hard to keep this guy out the paint. Whats cool about him is his work ethic. He was never a strong defended in college, but spent alot of years working on being pesky and breaking up plays with his lateral quickness. He's an underrated passer, and scoring is 2nd nature to him. Would be a big pick up for us, because he listens and wants to win and does anything to win. We're a slow team with not much passing, quickness and winning mentality. JJ is only 26 and is entering his prime.

    People hate on him cause of his height and looks more like a Tennis player than NBAer, but he has continue to prove people wrong over and over again.

    Undrafted to NBA Champion Starter



    Barea pick and roll with Stoudemire would be deadly. Barea knows how to break down the defense and is a pretty good finisher at the rim, teams would have a nightmare chasing Barea around. Not only do they have to worry about Stat they have to worry about Melo on the outside JJ is the ideal fit plus he can knock down the 3.


    PG: Barea
    SG: Shump
    SF : Melo
    PF : Amare
    C : Tyson

    Barea is not a season long starter....he had a good playoff run and had a very specific role that isn't guaranteed to be duplicated here in NYC. He's not gonna be darting in and out of the paint when the primary scorers are Melo and Amare.

    Who the hell can guard those guys? No one. Pointless post. PG defense is overrated. You're going to get beat 9 times out of 10. Especially with the rules in the NBA. We have Chandler now, so our perimeter defense can't be exposed. Those guys will have problems with Barea either way.

    That isn't a fact.

    and Melo and Amare needs someone to get them the ball and make the game easy for them. Barea is a strong assist man. Youre presuming too much on non existent things.

    Cool

    What happened to the "players will be clammoring to play for us on the cheap" notion?

    Are they lined up? Do we have the pic of the litter?

    Hello?!

    Yes because a capped out team not even done inking the deal is going to garner INSTANT demand around the league...

    Come on man, use your noodle.

    pass. dont believe the hype from him last season, it was his contract year so he was just playing above and beyond to impress teams and up his value. hell probably play like Brad Lohaus if we got him.

    In regards to JJ Barea, I direct you [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    he averaged 3.9 assists per game in 20 minutes. he's not a starter in this league and whoever gets him will probably overpay for him. Even in the playoffs, he only averaged 18 minutes a game. I'm presuming too much on non-existent things? No, I'm going by the numbers and you are simply making things up "he's a strong assist man". Based on what?

    He is still not a good defender in anyway.

    I really doubt he can be a good starter. He is very inconsistent already and would be a gigantic defensive liability if he plays 30+ minutes a game.

    Also look at that video you posted when he runs the PnR with Dirk. He gets wide open lanes because Dirk's man does not help off of Dirk. He won't be getting those wide open lanes on the Knicks, since we do not have an amazing 7 foot shooter. Hell even in that video he missed a lot of shots near the hoop because of his size. He is a role player at best.

    Capped out means MLE, $2.5mil exception depending how far over the cap, and vet's exception.

    And we are all assuming the deal is basically done aren't we?

    That would mean the players believe this too...

    So who will be lining up that qualifies as a player worth more but willing to play with us for less? Who?

    please knock some reality into this guy. I think ESPN ran that Barea highlight against the Lakers SO much, people are convinced he's a great player.....the numbers say otherwise. I mean, evidence enuff is that Jason Kidd and Terry are like 800 years older than Barea and they averaged 13 minutes more than Barea over the course of the season.
