So if Gallo could end up being enough of a third option, why trade him or Randolph away for a PG when we have a serviceable one right now? What more do we need our PG to do other than run the fast break and run some pick-and-rolls? With Randolph's size, length, and athleticism teamed up with Amar'e we wouldn't really have to worry about cutters and slashers with two big body's who can get stops and alter shots around the rim. Not to mention Turiaf who gives some of the same off the bench.
So then what incentive do we have to trade away someone who could end up being a solid 3rd option or one of the most freakishly athletic bigs in the game, who happens to have some skill and can refine his offensive game, for a PG? The only upside I can see Paul having in the system would be better court vision, but with the options we'd have on the perimeter and around the paint...would that really matter? Would he have a bad choice to make on any given possession?
Other than the big name, what tangible differences would there be between our PG's game and CP3's game in this system and is the tangible difference large enough to warrant parting ways with either of the two guys I talked about?
I dunno, I honestly don't know. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have CP3 on the Knicks. But I'd also love to have Amar'e and Randolph patrolling the paint with Gallo and Felton threats from the perimeter (driving and shooting.)
