Re: Knicks keep Chauncey Billups for 2011-12 season
The Knicks take a huge step backwards if they do not keep him. They already lack much talent outside of Amare and Melo, Billups provides a leadership that both Amare and melo havnt shown consistently over their careers.
Its a win win for them to keep him. If they do well, then they keep him for the season. If they struggle, he is a nice trade piece given his talent and contract size.
Toney Douglas is a nice young player, but not anywhere near what Billups can provide. Even at 34, he is still an impact player
