    Default Can we all agree the Knicks will be much better once Baron Davis returns?

    He doesnt even have to be in great shape, hes an immediate upgrade over Douglas and Bibby. The Knicks will need a 3rd player to consistently step up. Douglas is an every other game streaky type of player, Bibby is old. Shumpert is a rookie but as I mentioned in my other thread I believe hes the most likely to step up until BDiddy is healthy. I originally said Douglas but I changed my vote. Harrelson looks like he can be really good eventually. I dont know what to expect from Fields

    If Davis is more selective with his shots and looks to set up other players most of the time the Knicks fan can go deep. He could have a huge impact on this team and I hope he realizes how big of a role he can have

    if he could come back and play at 80% of how he did with the Warriors then ima say this now. we WILL be playing for the chip this season. well have 4 terrific players and a shooting guard who handles business and can kill you for sleeping on em. that starting 5 will gel and we'll easily have what it takes to knocks out the heat and really make a run for the title.

    LOL, I think we are all trying to gauge how excited we should be about our team, and it comes down to the play and help of BD

    He lead Clev. to some big wins after the trade deadline, 2 wins against us, and a big win against Mia. and BD was the difference maker in both of those games.

    And he was playing hurt last year when he did it!


    What he is going to do for us is throw those lobs to Tyson like CP3 did, he will work the 2 man great with Amare and he will knock down the open 3

    So in Dantoni's system he will not be Nash, but will be an upgrade over Felton and is a better fit for this offense than Billups,

    I got him averaging 13 pts 8.5 rebs

    So to answer your question a healthy BD makes us a better team

    Someone mentioned the Golden State playoff run...if he plays anything like that then we are a real, real problem!!!

    I agree on your 13 points 8.5 assist theory and add 4 rebounds this season.

    Who dat?

    Shump can, and should be running the point. If only to get him use to setting players up and in facilitator mode.

    Don't want MOA insisting he become a two where he thinks shoot first instead of pass first- that won't benefit us and could ruin what a dominate player he can be at the point.

    And that's true if Fields must stay in th starting line-up.

    Shump-Fields-Melo-STAT-TC offers many benefits

    With
    Douglas (combo guard, spark plug 6th man)
    Jorts (big, hustler, defense)
    Jeffries (see above)
    Walker (more fire)
    Balkman (hate to say it but he can give us a quality 6 foul perfomance)
    B-diddy (savvy vet off the bench)
    Novak (3pt shooter, stretch 4)

    I'm for starting shump at either guard spots, let B diddy heal, and by the time he's ready, Imax would have solidified his position.

    Either Fields or TD must go (out the starting line-up) Td is better off the bench, but Fields can be too.

    If BD stays healthy, we can beat anyone.

    Davis can and will be a game changer. He looks motivated and is saying all the right things so if he can come back healthy he will be a huge part of this team.

    He doesn't need to be great. He needs to feed the ball and make some shots, Baron will be what the Knicks need. There also shouldn't be too much of a rush for him to come back, the Knicks can win without him for now. Then when he's ready the Knicks will work on the ultimate goal.

    Davis replaces Chauncey Billups, and with the addition of Chandler, Billups is a distant memory once Davis is healthy.

    Davis has his ups and downs but put him with our lineup, and let him handle the basketball, and we have a solid starting 5.

    Davis can pass in transition, which is sorely missed since Toney Douglas fails to accomplish this simple ability.

    Davis can hit the three point shot, like Billups, and doesn't have to do so much on offense.

    I can't wait to see him healthy.

    P&R with Amare all day.

    Al Ianazzone: D'Antoni again said Baron Davis' timetable is 4-8 weeks. He's rehabbing his back and not doing anything on the court.

    In my humble opinion, we are a legitimate contender if we get Baron fully healthy before the playoffs. I see him as one of the biggest x-factors in the entire league. People forget how talented he is and how dominant of a player he can be when he is motivated and healthy
