    but that is cool though... Baron off the bench means the knicks will always have a good PG on the court.

    Depth. I'm seriously blown away now with what's not even HERE yet. Amar'e, Melo, Baron...and in the post game Josh Harrellson was mentioned, damn.....

    Latest, we are favorites to land JR Smith, too....

    Assuming T-Dog gets dog-housed,

    Lin-Baron-Shumpert
    JR-Shumpert-Fields
    Melo-Fields-Jeffries
    Amare-Harrelson-Novak-Jeffries
    Chandler-Harrelson-Jeffries-Novak

    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.

    And the crazy thing is, Lin is controlling the ball, so we won't have to worry as much about Smith getting a little wild. Smith is good, Lin would make him better.

    Yes! God, I'm salivating at our potential depth and skills....I can't wait for Harrelson to get his back into the mix.

    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.

    The sick thing is when you add STAT into what we currently have going, it's an immediate game changer. It will be on par to the type of efficient dominance STAT has always been known for.

    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.

    Imagine Melo even just doing what Walker is doing now...shooting open shots...

    Seriously, Amar'e had Nash as a teammate, having Lin AND Davis is gonna make him feel like he's laying on a cloud in Heaven.

    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.

    STARTERS
    Lin
    Fields
    Melo
    Stat
    Chandler
    --------------
    BENCH
    Baron
    Jr
    Shump
    Jorts
    Jeffries

    OR

    Baron
    Jr
    Shump
    Novak
    Jorts

    ^ 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?
