    Default Knicks looking into Mike Bibby

    TheKnicksBlog is reporting that Mike Bibby is on the Knicks' radar.

    He did not play great in the playoffs with Miami but the guy is a competent 3-point shooter who was once a very good point guard. I think it will be good to have him on the same team as Iman Shumpert and Toney Douglas; the Knicks could use a solid veteran player like him.

    He's not the same player he used to be but he'll be fine as a catch and shoot player and 3-point specialist type of guy. I think it's a fine acquisition for the minimum if that's what they get him for.

    No thanks I think we need athleticism at the 1 spot Bibby is more of a bench guy and we have 1 in Douglas who's a better defender

    We also need outside shooting since our 3-point shooting is all but gone right now. Bibby is a cheap option who can serve as a good mentor for Douglas who as of right now still has no idea how to play the point. Bibby isn't a pure distributor but he is an experienced veteran and we need a PG with outside shooting skills BADLY. We have no outside shooting up front, so...

    We have Douglas for that along with being a capable defender, we hopefully are getting Baron Davis since he's getting bought out instead of the amnesty clause so he's free to sign wherever

    Do not want I'm not even sure he has the ability to be a starter quality PG for a whole season.

    Bibby couldn't hit a shot last year?

    Bibby shot 45.5% from 3-point range last year.

    TD didn't shoot poorly, but we still need a backup PG. In addition, I don't think Douglas can handle playing more minutes, and that still doesn't change the fact that Douglas has no PG skills whereas Bibby is an experienced veteran who can mentor him from the bench.

    I agree we need to get some kind of vet presence on this team right now it's all young guys/mid career guys there are not really any savvy vets on our team after getting shot of Billups.

    Bibby is a winner too might not have won a chip but I think we all remember 2002 pretty clearly.

    Similar to Mia. Adding Curry, not what we need but at league min. What's the harm?

    Allen Iverson is so much better than him now.

    That's cool. Too bad he still thinks he should start and would just ruin chemistry.

    Where are you getting this from? He hasn't played in the NBA for over 18 months.

    Because the last time he was in the NBA he was still good, and looked good in Turkey. Bibby didn't look better than Shawne Williams last season.

    On some ish your right the thing is he was getting his asssss torched by young guys if I recall but maybe he's in better shape wont hurt at all after all we do have questions at PG and Allen Iverson is the Answer
