    All i know is that i picked him up in my fantasy league. I see this guy playing a good amount of minutes with Kid and Felton. From what i see, he is an assist machine and with the knicks new tougher team defense, i'm sure the points Kidd and Felton will end up with some foul trouble giving him those minutes.

    This guy should run the first-team offense.

    Guy is Jason Kidd number 2. Really plays a lot like him.

    What surprised me the most is how much he talks. Really didn't expect that but I love it.

    He should but he has worked so well with the 2nd unit that u dont want to break that up..

    and imagine if Felton got he news that he was no longer the starting PG? He would cry and run to McDonalds and relapse.

    I'd still start Felton because Pablo's much more of a playmaker who can get lesser players more involved and better shots. I think Felton might try to shoot more if he ran the 2nd unit.

    Plus I like that Felton can score to keep the other PG's working more on both ends.

    But I think Pablo could work well with the 1st unit and his defense is really impressive so far.

    On the plus side Ray would help stimulate the economy by buying out every Crumbs in the city.

    Announcement About how many years do you think Prigioni has left?

    He's a 36 years of age rookie, in good/great shape, and I'm guessing his mileage isn't like other 36 years of age NBA players. How long do you think he could keep up at this level athletically? He has the PG skills and IQ, so that's not an issue.

    There's only been older rookies early on in the NBA, so there's no statistics to say that he can't go significantly past the usual age of retirement.

    Prigioni is 35. The seasons in Argentina don't really take a toll on your body as much as NBA seasons do, so he doesn't have the body of an average 35 year old NBA player. I think he can still stay in the league for a few more years.

    THIS! He played in his home country and Europe. We can all agree that those leagues don't have the same pace as the NBA.

    Plus, he is in a REALLY good shape for his age. And let's not forget the fact that he's a back-up guard, so he's always coming of the bench with fresh mental and physical energy.

    I say he can play a good 3-4 years in the NBA, including this one.

    He doesnt dominate with his athleticism, he does a good job of running an offense with his craftyness and experience. Hes slick...and hes probably got the wear and tear of a 32 year old so I can see him going as many as 4 or 5 more years. Its not like hes playing huge minutes, I can see him stickin around as a good role player
