    If Shump was healthy from the start, and we got even a modest improvement out of Amare on D, I'd bet we'd be #1 in league.

    The boost from Camby alone will be really big, same for Brewer and Kidd. '

    Plus, I actually expect Melo to *thrive* defensively. The players around him + coach should give him a Paul Pierce transformation....except better, bc he is a superior athlete.

    If Melo doesn't beast on D this year, it would be *extremely* dissapointing and surprising.

    Agreed. Even watching melo in the Olympics he's playing tougher defense. #knickstape

    Absolutely LOVE this signing!
    Who cares if he shoots with a broken wing...this dude is LOCKDOWN!

    Shump and Brew, is the cure for miami blues. TWO excellent wing defenders ready to canvas that ass!

    LOVE the defensive look this team is taking on.

    Another plus to this addition is that Brewer really wants to win, he said that other teams offered him way more money but he wanted to be in NY and he wanted to WIN.

    Warming up to the Brewer signing big time.

    Just listening to his interview with Joe & Evan while watching his "finisher" highlight mix got me pumped up. I wasn't giving this guy his due -- he's got skills and he's a very underrated athlete. Obviously, very solid defensively... Sounds like a real good dude too -- well spoken, good character guy. And he wants to be here too which ya gotta love. Nice pickup. I gotta learn to shut my mouth more and give the Knicks more credit sometimes. They know what they're doing.

    Great pickup .. I never understood why coach Sloan gave up on Ronnie Brewer,
    the Utah Jazz had the perfect fit backcourt tandem in Deron & Brewer ..
    Derik Fisher united that starting backcourt when in Utah.

    PG-Kidd & SG-Brewer
    PG-Pablo & SG-Felton

    I see Felton as our 6th man SG off the bench .. untill Shumpert return healthy.
    Felton skills are better suited as a combo-guard the way our roster is design.
    I also see to many of the league young SG & PG catching fire on Melo's ex-teammate
    JR.Smith 28 minutes of playingtime (weakness).
    I dont think JR.Smith performance will come back n bite my words .. scoring high on
    mediocre teams is not enough bite.

    You're right man -- there's a lot of interchangeability/flexibility now. I can't wait to see it all unfold. Opening night in Brooklyn can't come soon enough!! All that I wanna see is them add that one more useful player to round out the roster (be it an extra shooter or a backup big that can score---their preference) and I'm ready to go to war...Who knows, maybe that extra shooter turns out to be Copeland. Keep forgetting about him. He can shoot -- 40% 3-pt shooter in Europe last year and he showed it in summer league.

    Ronnie Brewer update. He says he sees a lot of potential in the team and that's why he chose the Knicks.
    -----------------------------------------

    Potential means a lot to Ronnie Brewer. That was the word he used multiple times Thursday in explaining why he chose to sign a one-year deal with the Knicks this week.

    Brewer sees the Knicks building for success now, not the future. He noticed that was why the free agents Marcus Camby, Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd all joined the team earlier this month.

    Brewer also realizes the potential he has as one of the Knicks’ shooting guards next season. The Knicks felt Brewer was one of the last assets they needed to compete with the growing competition in the Eastern Conference, and he should fit easily into Coach Mike Woodson’s system as a guard ready to defend the opponent’s best player with the ability to score when necessary, whether in limited minutes or as the starter.

    “When I looked at New York, and its fans, I saw they had a great team,” Brewer said in an interview with Sports Radio 66 WFAN NY. “I felt like it was a place I could come in and play well. I think the fans will respect my skill level.”

    Brewer said he didn’t know if he will be the Knicks’ starting shooting guard. He will be competing for the opportunity, mostly with J.R. Smith, when the team begins training camp. Iman Shumpert started 35 games last year during his rookie season, but tore his anterior cruciate ligament and the lateral meniscus in his left knee during the Knicks’ playoff series against the Miami Heat. Shumpert is expected to be out until January.

    “The Knicks are a playoff team and will be competing for something,” said Henry Thomas, Brewer’s agent. “I think Ronnie will have an opportunity to ply a lot of minutes.”

    The 27-year-old Brewer said he doesn’t mind coming off the bench if that’s what Woodson wants. In last year’s lockout-shortened season, Brewer started 43 games for the Chicago Bulls. He averaged 6.9 points and 3.5 rebounds. In his career, Brewer has shot 50 percent from field.

    Brewer’s said his versatility — as a rebounder, a defender and a solid shooter — will allow him to help the Knicks win games in various ways.
    “The Knicks had a good team before I got there,” Brewer said. “I’m just trying to come here and add whatever is needed.”
    On most nights, Brewer knows what Woodson and fans will want from him: defense.

    In the Eastern Conference, Brewer will be asked to guard players such as Dwyane Wade, Paul Pierce and Joe Johnson — all scorers the Knicks will likely have to limit if they want to advance in the playoffs.

    Right now, the Knicks are a team full of offensive threats. With Tyson Chandler, last season’s defensive player of the year, in the paint, Brewer said his addition on the perimeter should help the Knicks become a top-tier defensive team.

    “I think everybody on the team has the ability to play defense,” Brewer said. “We’re athletic enough to do it. We have to want to do it as a team.”
    Thomas said he believes Brewer can help the Knicks’ offense in more subtle fashion. “When the team goes small, he could play the small forward spot,” Thomas said. “He has the ability to move very well without the ball. That’s something New York is going to find out about him.”

    Brewer acknowledged that he could have received a bigger contract from other teams. Thomas said the Minnesota Timberwolves were aggressive in pursuing him.

    But Brewer wants to win now. “To me, it didn’t come down to money,” he said. “We have some star power. I think everyone’s excited. I’m looking forward to it.”

    +1. Great find, AFP. I love the fact that he chose the Knicks even though other teams offered more moolah. Its pretty interesting that he mentions himself as a solid shooter. I didn't really watch any Bulls games other than the ones against the Knicks to find out if he has improved his jumpshot.

    One thing's for sure though, his shooting form looks wayyy better than Fields catapult-esque ****. I think his jumpshot is fixable. Also, he is a better defender than Fields.

    Brewer > Fields
