Default 2011-2012 New York Knicks

Stared thinking about a realistic team we might put on the court next season.

PG- Chauncey Billups, Toney Douglas, Iman Shumpert
SG- Landry Fields, Bill Walker, Jason Kapono(1 Yr Vet Minimum)
SF- Carmelo Anthony, Shawne Williams, Derrick Brown
PF- Amare Stoudemire, Kenyon Martin(1 Yr $4 Million), Ronny Turiaf
C- Kyrylo Fesenko(1 Yr $1.6 Million), Jerome Jordan, Josh Harrellson

So basically our offseason acquisitions would be Kenyon Martin, Jason Kapono, & The Giant Ghost. Thrown in with bringing in draft picks Iman Shumpert, Jerome Jordan, & Josh Harrellson.

Not too impressive, but we're building for something bigger with 2012.

Martin & Turiaf both will get a majority of the minutes at C. Martin brings man defense & toughness, which we lack big time. Hes friends with both Amare & Carmelo which should make him joining the Knicks an appealing option. Hopefully one of those 3 C's steps up by the Trade Deadline when we move Turiaf.


How would you put the team together?

If the knicks can put that team together it will be solid with good depth. Still need to learn how to play D though

I agree with this. I've been a huge supporter of Kenyon for this team. His defensive intensity and leadership are perfect. We need someone like him to get in the face of Amar'e and Melo if they slack on defense. Obviously he's not a center and has injury problems, but if we were able to get by with playing Jefferies, Turiaf and Shelden (and sometimes Shawne/Amar'e) at C after the trade Kenyon should able to add to that. He's the same height as Turiaf and Shelden but with much more hops and skill. It's not ideal, but we can get by for one year with that. I'm just afraid he won't accept a one year deal.

The only change I'd do is replace Fesenko with Aaron Gray. Or maybe go for a vet like Foster, Kwame or Pryzbilla, because they'd be more likely to accept a one year deal. I'd also prefer James Jones or Anthony Parker to Kapono, but I don't think they'd either really play much. Pretty much just replace Roger Mason Jr's spot on the bench. Maybe waive Rautins and Balkman (or trade him) to make space.

I'm hoping Shumpert will be able to contribute big minutes the whole years. If we can get 25 mpg from him then we can play Landry more at SF and let Billups get some rest.

I see an NY team with a rotation of:
Billups/Shumpert/Douglas/Landry/Melo/Amar'e/Kenyon/Turiaf/Jerome Jordan or Gray or Fesenko or vet

with Shawne, Walker, Jorts and Jones/Parker/Kapono all sitting on the bench

managing to get around 52-55 wins and at least the 2nd round.

Rautins contract isnt guaranteed. I'd buy-out Renaldo Balkman's last 2 seasons since we're not gonna be able to find someone to take him on.

Dont get me wrong, I wouldnt mind having either 3 on the Knicks.

However Kenyon Martin's "thuggery" on the court is exactly what we need for our team. Like Melo MVP 15 mentioned, we need someone to bring some defensive intensity & passion. Im of the belief that 1 personality like that can rub off on their teammates on defense, just like KG's personality brought some intensity to his laid back teammates like Rondo, Perkins, & Big Baby at certain times.

I'm more concerned about our core players staying healthy into the Playoffs than how D'Antoni coaches them. Hes never won a Championship, but his teams usually faired well when they got to the Playoffs when healthy. Those Suns teams didnt win a championship because they lacked a defensive presence at C, and neither will this Knicks team until we get a defensive presence at C.
