    Default Stop trying to emulate the Heat! Try to Emulate the Lakers.

    Ok. So Everyone keeps going on and on about "You need a big 3" and "every championship team had 3 great player!"


    While it is true a Big 3 can win a title (for EX Boston in the 80s/00, a few of Micheal Jordans teams, Lakers in the 80s, 1970 Knicks with Clyde, Earl, Reed)

    A big two with both veteran and Promising young role playersis also a good way to do it. Look at the Lakers.

    Kobe and Gasol with alot of roleplayers.

    Look at the Heat. They can have 1 superstar out there with a cast of mediocre role players.

    now look at the Lakers. they can have Kobe out there with Odom, Fischer, Brown and Artest, and Kobe with Matt Barnes and Steve Blake!

    This is what we need to do to become a championship contender.

    Ok so next year this is what we do.

    Turiaf will most likely pick up his Option

    Pick up Shawne Williams team option (800k)

    Pick up Derrick Browns team option (800k)

    Grab a backup PG vor vets minimum (Arroyo?)

    resign Roger Mason for Vets minimum

    Trade Andy Rautins to Toronto for a 2nd round pick

    With the 2nd round pick draft Dwight hardy to replace Rautins and do his job 10x better!

    With our 1st round pick draft Kenneth Faried!

    then we have like 5 million in cap room.

    With that we sign Deandre Jordan!

    This will give us enough big men to challenge the Heat and Celtics!

    PG: Chauncy Billups
    SG: Landry Fields
    SF: Carmelo Anthony
    PF: Amare Stoudemire
    C: Deandre Jordan


    C Ronny Turiaf
    PG/SG Toney Douglas
    C Kenneth Faried
    SG/SF Bill Walker
    SF/PF Derrick Brown
    SF/PF Shawne Williams
    PG Carlos Arroyo
    PG/SG Dwight Hardy
    PG Roger Mason
    15th spot: I think we need a tough backup PF to add to this spot.

    Also give the Hottest rookie in the game an extension!!!!!!!

    I agree, we don't need a "big 3" to compete for a championship, especially considering the fact that we have an overall top 5 player in Carmelo & top 10 player in Amare.

    I never knew we had a 1st rounder this year though?

    Also, Arroyo is not a good PG. Not @ all. No thanks on Carlos.

    Why replace Rautins with a draft pick during the 2nd round, when we could just draft the BPA (Big man) during the 2nd?

    My dream offseason would be to sign Ricky Rubio & DeAndre Jordan. I'll take both DeAndre Joran & a PG who's going to be a great top 5 PG in Rubio over Howard or CP3.

    C- Jordan
    PF- Stoudemire
    SF- Carmelo
    2G- Fields
    PG- Rubio

    How's that for a starting 5?!?

    PG- Billups / Douglas / Mason
    SG- Douglas/ Walker / Rautins
    SF- Shawne Williams / Walker / Brown
    PF- Turiaf / Brown / Shawne Williams
    C- Turiaf / Brown / Amare

    Rubio, Fields, Melo, Amare, Jordan / Billups, Turiaf, Douglas, Williams & Walker.

    Hows that for a 10 man rotation?

    Thats a starting 5, which would be our backups, that could compete with some of the NBA's less talented starting 5 as of right now.

    The Knicks are not far away from becoming 2 and even 3 DEEP @ every position. With two of the NBA's top 10 megastars leading the way? We're on the verge of greatness.
