Lineup options?


The Knicks enter the 2012-13 season with a lot of additions and departures. NONE of the point guards from last season are back, replaced by the return of an old friend in Raymond Felton, a veteran Hall of Famer in Jason Kidd, and the oldest rookie in Knicks history (?) in Pablo Prignioni. The 2s will be held down by "snatched from the Bull's fire sale" Ronnie Brewer and sixth man/instant offense JR Smith until sophomore Iman Shumpert returns. The forwards will be manned by Carmelo Anthony and 3 point specialist Steve Novak, while the big men will be pick and roll master Amar'e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler and two veterans (and former Knicks) Marcus Camby and Kurt Thomas.

If there's anything this lineup can have, it's versatility.

Starting lineup:

Felton -Brewer/Shumpert - Anthony - Stoudemire - Chandler

This is a pretty balanced lineup, with the crux of the offensive attack being Felton-Stoudemire pick and rolls and Anthony isolations. The 2 and the 5 provide defense more than anything.

Pick and roll/spacing small lineup:

Felton - Shumpert/Smith - Smith/Brewer - Novak - Stoudemire

All pick and roll with jump shooters to space the floor.

Defensive/crunch small lineup:

Kidd - Shumpert - Brewer - Anthony - Chandler

Melo's the weakest defender in this lineup, but he's the most consistent offense option.
