Study up, KO.
Hate to say it but Brooklyn has the best starting back court and has a strong case for best supporting.
hmmm, might take a lil while to digest this. I just gave some rep out to several players by pressing the thingy under their user names. I figured that was all to it but I see there is more to it then I originally thought. Thanks for the explanation, thou.Crazy⑧s;246830 said:Works like this:
New green thingy for every 100 points - poster that reps you has, for e.g., 10 rep power and reps you 10 points in accordance with that RP.
Plus one RP for every year since joining - July 2013 in your case.
Plus one RP per 1,000 posts.
Your initial point comes, I think, after 150 posts.
After receiving a total of 600 points, you are eligible for a night of passion with HRH, Elizabeth Windsor excluding anal. She is a good sport though.
^even after reading this i still don't get it. I've got 6 rep points so if i rep someone i am giving them 6 points and then when it hits 100 they get a new rep point? actually now that i type it out that seems simple... does it work for neg reps the same way?
I got neg repped once cause i said CA7 would leave with Melo if he was traded. I guess he took offense to that... but i didn't see him on the forums until melo was here so i had to figure he was a melo-fan first.
Back on topic: I'd say we have the 4th best in the east without Shump behind the Nets, Heat, Celtics, and Bucks. When he's back and if he's playing like he was this backcourt is a sleeper.
If he comes back with a better jumpshot (he's working on it while rehabing) we will rival the Nets in the backcourt... add that to the best frontcourt in the league and I think we have a great shot this year!

Felton / Kidd / Pablo
Shump / Jr / Brewer
Our back court is underrated defensively IMO, Felton, Shump, Brewer, Kidd, Jr these are all players who WANT to play defense and put the effort in defensively they have the potential to make it tough on our opponent to score the ball especially under woodson, he will have these guys working their butts off defensively.
Offensively we have an average back court IMO, but even though it's a average back court Felton/Jr/Shump are all capable of creating their own shots & Kidd/Brewer know their roles.
Regarding how we stack up against rivals
Brooklyn Nets- D-Will/Joe Johnson Best Backcourt in the NBA and our biggest threat from a back court standard, lets not forget they still have Brooks/Watson coming off the bench as well
Miami Heat Wade/Ray Allen- this will give us serious problems if the heat were to throw out a line up of
Celtics Rondo/Lee/Terry/Bradley -- Underrated backcourt that could give us fits offensively and defensively, but i like our chances against them.
Bucks-- the mini me duo of Jennings/Ellis -- Not a sleeper back court both of these players can go off any given night, but we can handle them with the way our roster is set i cant say i'm NOT worried because the Bucks seem to always give us problems but i like our chances.
Pacers- they are in the same boat as us, their strong point is their front court of Granger/hibbert/west... i'd say the Pacers/Knicks backcourts are arguably equal but the pacers have the younger back court.... i'd say we have an advantage defensively against their back court, i'll give them the slight advantage offensively. Hill, Green, Augistin, George, stephenson
Sixers--Underrated backourt, they are young and will make mistakes but they have potential Holiday, Turner, Nick Young, Jason Richardson. They have some nice pieces but still have alot to learn, Richardson will bring them Veteran Leadership, we can handle them though not worried.
Bulls - Crap Back court until Rose is back on the radar ( Rose is missing a large chunk of the season so i don't see the bulls much of a threat until further notice) + they lost their whole "BENCH MOBB" through free agency that bench really helped the Bulls with the absence of D.Rose mark my words the bulls will struggle big time this season until rose is back i'm sorry but "Hinrich, Nate, Bellenlli, Buttler" is not getting it done.
Raptors - Lowry, Fields, Derozan, John Lucas, Calderon, Ross, their backcourt is deep as hell. Are they a threat? No way Jose but i like the potential in their back court they have a chance to make the 8th seed, maybe even 7th.
Hawks- Crap Back court IMO
Magic- Crap Back court IMO
Detroit- Crap Back court IMO
Cavs- Crap Bacourt (MINUS IRVING) & I think Waiters will be a BUST
Wizards- Crap Back Court IMO (MINUS J.WALL)
BOBCATS- Crap Back Court IMO

I'm really looking forward to seeing our back-court VS the 76ers and the Bucks. That'll be telling, for sure. Until Shump returns, I think Indiana have ot over us in their back-court.
Nice post, NYK reloaded!
I believe we have a very weak backcourt, particularly while Shumpert is out. Felton is simply not that good and has never been that good. His year with D'Antoni was his best year, but D'Antoni's system even made Duhon look good.
Felton thinks he is much better than he is. When he was with us he averaged 14.833 shots a game with a field goal percentage of 41.2 and a three point percentage of .33. That is not impressive. Only Amare' took more shots, but his field goal percentage was 52. And it seemed that Felton always insisted on being the hero -- he inevitably took the last shot. He is at best a mediocre defender. Neither he, Kidd or Prigioni have a chance of keeping up with the likes of Westbrook, Wall, Irving, Lawson and Holiday.
Kidd is almost 39 and his game as been in serious reverse mode for a couple of years. He is hardly the defender he once was and he could never shoot that well. He is, however, a veteran presence and since our stars are in the front court will likely get them the ball.
Prigioni might help but he is 35 and does not seem to have much of an offensive game.
Brewer is gold on defense. I have hopes for JR.
Wouldn't be so sure about that, I think Indy, like Philly overachieved last year based on their chemistry together. They added George Hill as their starting PG over Collison. This was a smart idea against Miami whose size and pesky defense ruled Collison out almost straight away. George Hill, like Augustin, is primarily a shooter. When i look at their back court they have size and a lot of shooters, but no one who really stands out as a high quality passer. I think the Pacers will have the same problem we had with offense stagnation with TD as our point, but to a lesser degree.
The media loves to hype up Philly and Indiana because they are young and still forming and haven't bother to list this in between writing up a comprehensive list of reasons why the Knicks will fail.
EDIT: Atlanta probably won't be much of a threat and may sneak into the 8th seed but they have the same problem. Solely shooting guards filling out their back court.
Are all shoot first guards and only Teague has an average passing game.
