Holy crap O_O.
but that is cool though... Baron off the bench means the knicks will always have a good PG on the court.
Latest, we are favorites to land JR Smith, too....
Assuming T-Dog gets dog-housed,
JR Smith would ball so hard here, and his prototypical SG-talents and range would be a great fit, especially as we look to optimize Melo (and Amare) back into this Post Lin world.
I also see a legitimate 11 man rotation that D'antoni works off of.
We're unintentionally resting players during this hectic season. If we make the playoffs and aren't 7th or 8th, I think we can make a big run.
JR Smith comes in as a 6th man in the second unit with shump, novak, Jorts, and Baron.... That is a damn good team there.
I wet myself thinking about our potential depth..
Harrelson and Novak (and even Jeffries) are such versatile bigs, to compliment Amare and Chandler.
No team wants to face that.
I love how Shumpert played a key role today, late in the game.
That type of depth, and using it right, is what puts the killshot on sealing off games vs quality teams.
Assuming we get Melo integrated, as well, it's adding the ultimate finisher and scoring threat; that Nowitzki-esque killshot type player that every championship team craves/needs.
And throwing out versatile bigs with range like Novak (and Harrelson), and athletes like Shumpert deep into games is just a nightmare for any team to face.
If the Knicks get Baron Davis back healthy and sign JR(latest I read was NY was his top destination) along with the emergence of the role players and Harrelson back healthy the Knicks would have two legit players that could get 6th man of the year award and solid role players off the bench thats crazy.
^ cant spread the floor no better than this
we cant afford to put Jr with the starters there would be hardly no ball movement plus he can be our 6th man scoring punch off the bench. Lin has shown what he is capable of doing, that starting 5 is offensively good enough & we sure cant afford to crush fields confidence he's been ballin lately + him&Lin play great together
Baron coming off the bench is idle, he keeps the game in order. He came off the bench for the cavs at one point and felt comfortable doing so plus coming off the bench would be ease on his back, not having to do so much.
Shump 6'5 or 6'6? cant remeber height somewhere around there but anyway he is Big enough to guard SF's and quick/strong enough to hold his own against them, plus shump and jorts have decent chemistry together.
Almost all Elite teams have a sixth man off the bench that can light it up. If we can grab JR i feel we can beat anyone on any given night
Thunder- sixth man - Harden
Bulls-sixth man- Korver
Blazers- sixth man-Crawford
Celtics- sixth man- Pietrus
Clippers- sixth man Mo williams
Grizzlies-sixth man- OJ mayo
Heat- sixth man- Battier
Mavs- sixth man- jason terry
Spurs- sixth man- gary neal
KNICKS- JR SMITH?
