I'm happy. He's clearly better than Douglas or Fields.

Davis will be a great signing if he can stay healthy.

A no risk signing, that could reap high rewards.

This is the best team Baron has played on, and when he gets healthy he will be a the starting pg.

I like it, just hope he gets healthy soon.

themselves after my basketball injury history, after i tore up my knee they got

amare, after I injured my elbow they got Melo, and now a few months after i

slipped a disc they got Baron.

Unfortunately one of the young bucks is going to miss out on time.

I have no clue who its going to be hurt by this signing...

I hope it shakes out this way though...

Bdiddy/Bibby/TD
Shumpert/TD (2nd team needs an offensive leader)/Laundry
Melo/Laundry/Balkman

But based on the size of the players
Bdiddy/Bibby/TD
TD/Shumpert (if he establishes himself)/Laundry
Melo/Laundry/Balkman

This signing should help the team not have to rely on TD or Bibby running the point for no amount of extended minutes.

It also helps put players in their proper positions on the court.

Baron starts, moves Shump to the two, moves Fields to backup 3, TD as 7th man, Bibby as the backup pg.

Nobody is hurting for minutes because players will need rest for this crunched season.

All hands on deck, no 7-8 man rotations this season.

Default Re: Baron Davis is a Knick

I'll be honest, B-Diddy has been one of my favourite NBA players for a long time, so I'm happy that he's a Knick.
But... He's 33 and declining.
So my happiness is a bit worried too. If he will be limited by his physical problems, the Knicks will still be lacking a legit PG.
I am 100% sure that if he's healthy he is a perfect addition to this team.
I guess we can't but wait and see

Exactly. We need a 10 man rotation this year. We can't let guys waste away on the bench.

Only thing I'm worried about is shot distribution.
B-Diddy also likes to take a lot of shots and we already have 2 shot jackers on our team.
Baron averaged 12 shots per game last season,Amare 19 and Melo 20.

On the other hand if healthy he is a huge upgrade over Douglas or Bibby.

Baron will be the 3rd-4th scorer on the floor normally.

12 in the flow of the offense will not be an issue.

Baron isnt here to take over, and he knows it.
