Baron Davis will definitely play a BIG role for this team when he finally suits up in Orange & Blue. Fields, Amar'e, Chandler, and Melo need a true floor general for this team to click on offense. The black bearded shepherd needs to guide his sheep to greener pastures and feed them.

Injecting Davis into the starting lineup can solve most of our problems on offense:

*As one of the guys here in the forum stated, Fields is primarily an off-ball player who relies on sharp cuts to the basket for his points. The problem is that no one can find him when he does cut to the basket. Last year's rookie surprise has been invisible in the offense so far. Let's hope B-Diddy helps him find his game back.

*The Knicks' $33 million frontcourt of STAT & Chandler need a competent pick-n-roll partner for them to be effective in the paint. Although Melo has been doing a great job of dishing the alley oops, we shouldn't rely on our primary scorer to do EVERYTHING out there on the floor. And as we all know, STAT definitely needs that pass-first PG....... his play has been awful lately. He doesn't know how to play defense and can't keep his man in front of him. When the opponent blows by him, he decides to whack em with a frustration foul. He needs to play defense with his feet or GTFO. Sorry STAT.

*Don't get me wrong. Melo has been great for us so far and has lead the charge on offense. But IMO, The Knicks need to play less ISO for Melo where he stands still waiting to give a pass or score himself. We need B-Diddy to instill discipline in the offense and distribute the ball evenly among the starters. As history will tell us, Melo needs that disciplined PG along with him to prevent the ball from stopping in his hands or from him to attempt a lot of crazy shots.

Sure he can average 30ppg if you give him 100% freedom on offense, but we need quality shots most of the time for this team to be truly dangerous. Case and point: Melo averaged 30 ppg with AI as his PG, 1st round exit in the playoffs. With Billups, he averaged 24 ppg while playing team basketball, Western Conference Finals.

Only if the big impact you're talking about is the creampie he gave you last night. Yeah.

This guy established himself fairly quickly with the Cavs despite arriving late in the season and not having trained with the rest of the team. He worked wonders with them; and that was only the Cavs. If he wants to (possibly a big 'if'), the Knicks can instantly become a team to challenge for the conference title.

You seriously and foolishly underestimate Davis' skill level. That and he's only 32. If he can get healthy we'll be in good shape.

Exactly, guards make longer careers than forwards/centers, Nash's almost 38, Kidd 39 and they're still great basketball players, don't understand why some users think Davis is too old to make an impact on this team.

He'll make us better no doubt. I just don't know how much better tho. This team has a few problems outside of the need for a starting caliber pg

Like D'Antoni said "He's a very good player" but the Knicks need an all-star PG that can play 35-40 mpg to turn this ship around. Baron is a few years removed from being an all-star and will he play more than 20-25 mpg?

^^exactly, people are still thinking of B. Davis pre-injury. We will have to see what he has left. Excluding health issues..he should do well with Stat and Melo...but health seems to be a big issue at the moment...and it's probably the least of our worries...

Whether or not we get the pre-injury Davis, his presence will put the team in alignment. The pieces will start to fit.

We had Billups and were satisfied with him. Well, I can honestly say that a healthy Davis is just as good as Billups and maybe even better on defensive end.

Here are stats for the last 3 years head-to-head.

As you can see by these stats (as recent as last season) Davis is a competitor and can still be highly effective.

Cmon now. Tmac was a 25 million dollar salary dump. Anything else was a bonus.

I agree with you. The only problem I see with Davis is that he's been out for a long time and it's going to take him a good while to get his legs/shot/speed/passing back after riding the bench for so long.

When he does get going, watch out!
