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.
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...
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.
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.
8th grade me would kick my ass for saying this but i'd be interested in seeing what he could do
