You guys sure aren't a welcoming community lol but let me try this again with a little less negativity. I was wrong guys we do have some hope. Obviously a point guard would make a world of a difference. But who's going to be that point guard?
People are claiming that an average point guard will do the trick, I beg to differ. We need a point guard that will demand respect when he steps on the court. Also on that like the ball in his hands so Amare will stop trying to "create a shot" and run out of bounds lol. But lets be realistic about who our point guard will be.
Baron Davis should make us a lot better the second hes in good enough shape to start. He can play with the best of them but only when motivated. Hopefully the pressures of playing in NY will be enough to keep him straight. He very well may be the guy for the job, which is the best possible outcome. Besides that the only one that comes to mind (without much thought) is steve nash. The only problem is he is taking his sweet old time to come here. Hopefully he gets tired of losing and Clyde said last night that he has a summer house in NY! Whats taking so damn long then!!!
Now on my last post i bashed Carmelo and Stat a lot. I was just in a negative mood, they can work together, but they need a third piece to keep them in check. To me, Carmelo is a naturally great basketball player. But he doesnt get into the best possible shape. He does what he can to get by. On an average night he has a terrible game, but he does have flashes of greatness. The question for him is how bad does he want it. Will he get sick of losing and bust his ass off in the offseason to take his game to the next level? Hopefully the media keeps bashing him so he has no reason but to, but lets not get our hopes up he didn't do it in Denver.
Now stat can be a pretty good player. As long as hes not creating his own shot. He needs a playmaker. Thats the only way for him to be a valuable player. He's a finisher not a creator.
We have the pieces and even some good young talent. (I've been Shumping just along with the rest of you) so lets get ourselves a damn point guard so we can have some damn fun!
Be easy on me now i'm new here!
