    Nyk Logo Who will create the biggest impact for the Knicks?

    With 9 new players to don the orange & blue for New York this upcoming season, It is clear that we'll see a much different team than last year. Three new point guards in Kidd, Felton and "The Maestro", the return of Camby and Kurt, defensive-specialist Ronnie Brewer Jr., and three wildcards in Copeland, White and Chris Smith....a defense-focused supporting cast for our BIG Three.

    Of all these guys, Which player do you think will make the biggest impact for the Knicks next season?

    Let me start it off with my pick.....


    I absolutely love the Kidd signing, as he's basically going to be our offensive coach. Genius move by Grunwald, taking into consideration that Woody isn't exactly great in the offensive apartment. It's nice to know that we've got a proven, future HOF PG running the show and leading the charge.

    IMO, Kidd will finally bring that much needed order and calmness to our offensive schemes, he's done it for all of his teams for 18 years now in the NBA. I know he's not as quick and strong as he used to be, but his leadership, perimeter shooting, and superb playmaking will absolutely make us a better team than last season.

    Default Ronnie is my Impact Player

    I am going to vote for Ronnie Brewer Jr. I hope he can transition into the role we needed Landry to fill for the past two seasons. That role in my opinion is :

    - Play good team defense , Play passing lanes to start breaks / transition offense , and guard the best perimeter player so Melo does not have too

    - Rebound at 3-6 rpg

    - Knock down open shots ( 3 pointers ) / space floor


    The thing I am most worried about from Ronnie would be his ability to knock down 3 pointers. He is a pro so I am sure Woody has him working on this part of his game just as Landry was when the off season started.

    Good thread OP!

    I think Felton is going to make the biggest impact out of your options. He's the starting PG so that's an obvious huge factor, & if his chemistry with STAT from his previous stint returns next season, this team will see a tremendous boost in performance.

    (btw, Kidd is wearing #5 for us this year)

    Right right, my bad.

    I was gonna choose Felton initially, but after watching some gameplay of him, he was out of control in most possessions. His game reminded me a little of Baron Davis. Focused on dishing the ball, but plays out of control sometimes. Plus, Kidd seems to be better in shooting the three boll than Ray, something that is much needed for our frontcourt who likes to clog up the lane.

    But if Felton can somehow learn to play more controlled basketball while still maintaining that aggressive edge, I agree with you that he'll probably make the biggest impact. Right now though, my choice is Kidd.

    No question that Ronnie Brewer can be the key especially in the absence of Shumpert. If Brewer can get his 9 point average up so much the better as we know he can play defense.

    Dead set draw between Kidd and Felton.

    Felton will add to his game under Kidd's tutelage.

    Kidd will add to his legacy through the successes of moulding Felton.

    There is an equilibrium between the 2, as one needs the other to help the team succeed. In doing so, they become successes.

    Long term, Felton. A season or 2 of high output and orchestration and he's done what he needs to do as Kidd's career reaches its twilight. He will then move on to another team as this 3 year window of opportunity comes to a close presumably, with a winner's ticket to a new and suitable contract for him.

    Can't wait to see it all unfold!

    Marcus Camby, the guys a starter on ALOT of other teams and he comes here to become a backup.

    Felton Easily creates the biggest impact just look at that tummy, Nobody can deny this man wont shake up the whole arena.






    But in all seriousness, since our defense down low became swiss cheese once Chandler got into foul trouble i feel Marcus Camby will create the biggest impact for the Knicks. Marcus Camby is also capable of playing some starting minutes so if there were to come a time where Chandler is injured we wont be missing a beat by inserting Camby into the Starting lineup. Ontop of that we can play Chandler & Camby down low at some points (which Woodson already stated as a possibility if needed). If anyone watched all of the Knicks games last season one of our glaring weaknesses was No presence down low off the bench. Jeffries was a nice filler but he's no blocking machine nor is he altering any shots he's mostly good for taking charges. Marcus Camby as our backup Center whats not to love? Some of the times Chandler played soft because he didn't want to get into foul trouble.. knowing he'll have legit backup insurance in Camby this season i think we'll be seeing an even more aggressive Chandler this season and i cant wait

    Having a starter quality back up center does wonders for Tyson's game. When Tyson won the Dallas job, his backup was Brendan Haywood an NBA starter most of his career. Tyson's aggression went up a notch knowing that there's someone of quality behind him. Expect more from Tyson and when he's not on the floor, don't expect to lose much with Camby.

    But I chose Kidd because of what he can bring on the court as well as off the court. He can still give 20 quality minutes, help Woodson coach the offense, it becomes more free lance than something overly structured and just his intangibles gives him cred inside the lockerroom.

    I'm not sure about Kidd, after that DUI, I get the feeling that he's here to coast into retirement and party. I could be wrong, of course.

    I voted Camby. He's going to bridge that gap between Chandler and the rest of the team. It's a second guy that can swat and board, kind of the intermediate role between Amar'e and Tyson on defense.

    I agree, I feel the same about Kidd right now. But lets hope we're wrong for the sake of the team.

    With Kidd or felton in my opinion
    Ima go felton simply because of his hunger to shut haters/critics up and he's playing with a chip. Also lets.not forget the man has chemistry with stat. He's part of the revival.

    All the others are huge contributors but feltons will be the steepest

    Its gotta be Felton because if he can get the pick and roll working again with STAT it will free up Melo, Novak and even Chandler. What we don't need from Felton is alot of shots to try and be Lin in Jan/Feb 12. Just be the distributor.
