Lets pick apart this starting line-up.
Gallo, ain't hitting shit from three, or anywhere else considering shooting is his strength
plus ain't passing, although it's been suggested he be a point forward
, got as many fouls, turnovers as he does assists, yet passing is a supposed strength
Chandler is clearly focused with the off-season, especially noted since he fired his agent.
He is having a his best statistical season, he is showing what his "ceiling" is, but once again, he is a role player.
He has been the second consistent Knick this season.
Fields has surprised us all, true enough, but let's be serious......
10ppg average from a starting shooting guard??
He leads the league in 2 guard rebounding because.....
His game fits more a small forward.
Fields is who should be used as the point forward, not Gallo.
If anyone really watches the game, Fields connects more on the pick and roll with Stat and everyone else better than anyone on the team.
I have said this before, but we are looking at a young Scottie Pippen.
But Fields is playing out of position so his efforts will be wasted.
He was a forward in college and his game suits that better.
He stretches the defense by his catch and shoot, makes the pass, and moves very well off the ball.
But being the last option on the floor.....
1)further impresses what he does
2)pretty sad considering he has been the most consistent and efficient player.
But we wonder why Stat barrels over triple teams?
Look at his starting cast and look at the offensive game plan from the coach.
Face it, the team is an average team.
It's Stat, with role players, out of position role players.
As much as we say Felton needs a backup, I really think he needs to move over.
He clearly has a shooting guards mindset, and skill set.
He gets assists, true enough, but not pg assists.
They don't come from a set play, usually from a broken play.
He doesn't drive and kick, or pick and roll well, which is usually where true pg's get their assists from.
Of course who would start??
And of course we don't play Centers, so even more out of position play.
