Okafor is 6'10 and a very good (averages 10.3 for his career) rebounder and defender. Amare is Amare. He's a scorer and his rebounding (career-8.9) numbers are fine too.
At the 2 I really don't have much to tell you. We would have to hope Walker can handle it. I think CP3 would make life a whole lot easier for him. Coach doesn't demand much from his 2 anyway- spot up for 3, run and defend basically.
Lastly, I commented in one of the early threads about the prospect of getting Paul w out much explanation on why I'm confident. Honestly it's really just a feeling I have. I think Walsh feels that in order for us to be a perennial contender we have to get Paul. I happen to agree w him. Here's my previous comment:
With Paul making noise like he is, and he is being quite flamboyant, I'd say New Orleans is probably gonna have to trade him. They are a team that needs to rebuild and Paul knows this.
All of the Karma is pointing towards him eventually teaming with Amare, unlike with Lebron. With LBJ it was exciting, but I always felt like it just wasn't going to happen one way or another.
These CP3 rumblings are very exciting to me, but in a more relaxed kind of way because I'm more confident it will actually happen. Go Knicks!!
We'll see what happens!
