    Wow our defense is going to be awesome this season. Not worried about his offense, we have enough of that. And it's not like Landry was doing that much better. We'll need a defender like him with Shump out.

    Brewer>>>>>>>>>>>>Fields
    I hear you, but looking back at how many wide open Jumpers Fields passed up or took and missed, replacing him with someone that can knock 'em down seemed the uptmost.

    Does he atleeeast have a decent FT%.... Just checked ..NoPE!!
    Their numbers are strangely identical so from a value perspective..nice pick up but all in all looks like Fields part 2...and I didn't like that kid.

    End of the day, should be a nice Shump stop gap so there's that. If he brings the D I'm cool.

    Once the time comes where Shump, Brewer, Chandler all on the floor at the same time, the defense is going to be intense. #defense first.


    Now all we need is Kenyon Martin and were set

    You can't compare Brewer's D with Landry's D though. We all saw how Fields got torched by Ray Allen in the playoffs and how he would let scrubs light us up. Brewer can guard BOTH SG's and SF's, which we needed with only two unproven players in White/Copeland backing up Melo. Felton/Kidd/Prigioni is way better than what we had at PG last season so it should be easier for everyone to score, even Brewer. Brewer's defense makes up for his offense.

    So the Knicks signed the darker version of Landry Fields... NICE! #Brewer more bricks from FT & 3PT lines

    ^^^^ this rep, the defense does make up for the offense. Defense wins ball games, Brewer for vet min is pretty much a steal.. who do we currently have thats a lock down defender? Chandler but he's a Center, Shump is out until January the latest this is a good pickup.

    Delfino and Foye were Pipe Dreams for the vet min

    All great teams have a lock down defender on their roster.

    Heat- Battier
    Lakers- Artest
    Thunder- Sefolosha
    Grizzlies- Tony Allen
    Nyets - Wallace
    Boston - Bradley

    and the list goes on

    This is good for Woodson's approach. Brewer is another smart defender we have for those close game situations.

    Although he isn't the best shooter, its ok because we have Kidd, Felton, JR, Novak, Melo and Copeland. These are all capable shooters.

    yep he is comparable to Fields but his ability to play D will likely earn him minutes under Woodson. Its a good pickup. I can definitely see the Knicks being a team other teams hate playing. Especially in the Garden.

    Getting the likes of Rashard Lewis for the min like Riley did in Miami might be called genius. Getting a lockdown defender that shoots 20% from 3 and 50% FT for the min is smart but not brilliant.
