JR isn't getting the mid-level.
I agree that Nash coming is a long shot. But he's not worth much in Miami (when they have two dominant ball handlers in LeBron and Wade) and he'd be good for half a season and then fail to co-exist with Rose. If he went to any team that is currently a contender he'd be relegated to nothing more than a spot up shooter. I think he might come to NY only because it'd be one of the few places where he could actually contribute a serious amount of minutes, unlike those other teams where he'd be a tertiary guy. And that's the problem - it's not as if Nash is playing like a veteran who needs to chase for a ring. He's playing like the best PG in the league right now and he's not going to play for Miami and Chicago and be the third option. Not his style. Better for him to come to a team like NY where he'd be the starting point guard.
I agree he'd be a much better fit here. Just imagine if we got him as our starting PG. I know alot of people will be ****ty if Lin is our backup, but what better chance for him to learn from a pass first PG with leadership skills.
JR Smith (Shump will be out for the first half of the season probably)
? (2nd rd pick, hopefully a solid shooter & capable defender)
Plus Lin seems to bring the best out in Fields, comparable to Nash & Amare. But it would be good for Novak to move to SF when Melo is resting because Nash will be able to get the ball to him for the 3, Amare for the PnR or Chandler for the lob.
