Default Knicks: Keep 'em or Dump 'em?

I find an interesting poll at New York Daily News.

We can vote who would we keep and who would we dump.

Here is the link:

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/ba...ump/index.html

MY PICKS ARE IN BOLD

Amare Stoudemire KEEP 97% DUMP 3%
Mike D'Antoni KEEP 38% DUMP 62%
Carmelo Anthony KEEP 93% DUMP 7%
Ronny Turiaf KEEP 60% DUMP 40%
Chauncey Billups KEEP 63% DUMP 37%
Landry Fields KEEP 78% DUMP 22%
Anthony Carter KEEP 64% DUMP 36%
Renaldo Balkman KEEP 11% DUMP 89%
Donnie Walsh KEEP 86% DUMP 14%
Roger Mason KEEP 28% DUMP 72%
Bill Walker KEEP 50% DUMP 50%
Andy Rautins KEEP 32% DUMP 68%
Shawne Williams KEEP 75% DUMP 25%
Derrick Brown KEEP 26% DUMP 74%
Shelden Williams KEEP 33% DUMP 67%
James Dolan KEEP 11% DUMP 89%
Jared Jeffries KEEP 32% DUMP 68%
Toney Douglas KEEP 74% DUMP 26%

Explanation where needed:
Landry Fields - I think he will get back to track
Ronny Turiaf - Energy guy,I would keep him as a bench player,not as a starter
Anthony Carter - Gives spark of the bench
Bill Walker - He is young,I think he will develop his game this summer
Derrick Brown - Athletic,he doesn't play now but I'm sure he would get playing time when D'Antoni is gone.He has potential
Shelden Williams - In case we get a legit 7' center he would be bench player,fighting for minutes with Ronny Turiaf.

Fields: No, he will not get back on track. He's an opportunistic player who thrives on teams with good ball movement. Melo's isolation game and Chauncey's chucking are the antithesis of that. His place on this team is gone. I really like him though.
Ronny I would keep. Good back up center, like in the beginning of the season.
Bill Walker I don't know. See what we can get maybe.
Derrick Brown is athletic, but kind of a tweener size wise (but not skill wise). He clearly wasn't ready for significant minutes this year, perhaps a training camp will be good.
Shelden Williams. Eh. Hopefully will get a real center and render him moot. Not that I dislike him or anything.

You are basically saying that Fields couldn't fit on any championship caliber team.

I hope that isn't what he is saying.

I don't know what happened to Fields.

The only thing I saw different was not really because of melo being here.

It was more that Felton was gone.

Felton facilitated, well not really, but he had the ball the most.

When he got traded, there were plenty of times that Fields would get stuck with the ball, and can't do anything with it.

The Knicks aren't a championship caliber team.

I'm sure Fields will get back to normal. The coaching staff needs to tell billups to get him involved and back.
