u right.... I have been callin out each of Layden/Isiah/and Walsh decision-
making moves....which does question my being a Knicks-Fan the past decade,
or am I a Knicks-fan that been hatin on owner Dolan's selection of the past GM.
The Knicks recently signed two of the NBA top-5 high scorers....
What pieces should the Knicks surround around these two scoring superstars?
A) The old Knicks DEFENSE? 1969 to 1999
B) Add more star offensive players?
C) Add any available minimum wage player?
As much as I hated losing Chauncy Billups, the signing of a top NBA defensive
center "Tyson Chandler" was the right direction for the Knicks to go in during
this short 66 game season. Center Tyson not only compliments Amare/Melo
but he also compliments our 2nd season hustling Big-Guard Landry Fields in
the starting lineup. Missing piece to starting lineup is a creative pass-first PG
(we probably wont get untill the 2012-13 season). TD is a great 3rd season
backup PG that create havoc in defending/scoring.
During this short 66 game season our direction should be looking to sign
young defensive depth off the bench, or experience veterans to help our
coach mentor our young players. Shump will be tested as a combo-guard
in his rookie season. Jorts will be tested as F/C in his rookie season. Walker
will be tested on how well he co-exist as a big-SG. Balkman will be tested on
how well he co-exist as a hustling foward. Jordan will be tested on how well
he could be a backup center.
The missing depth piece was the D.League defensive stand-out F/C-Sean
Williams rebounding/shotblocking to be "mentored" by Tyson Chandler &
Amare to become one of their prime backups in our bigman rotation.
NBA Bigmen are always the first to get injured on a team....especially a contender...
