The one position the Knicks need to upgrade is the point. With the rule changes taking affect and the fact that Camby has added some muscle, the Knicks have improved at the the #5. Camby does not have to develope a post game. Mutumbo does not have one! Yet since going to Philly he has improved his PPG avg. to double digits. Mutumbo played for the Iverson's scrap. Camby's offensive game was better than Motumbo's and now that he can move people a little easier it will get better. But we are weak at the point. No diss on Jax, but he is on his down swing. With Ward's knees a concern we have no choice but to go after a young PG. I still say the Knicks should be going after Shammond Williams. Williams is not as good as Payton, but he would be here for the long haul. And thats what we need a guy who will get in-sink with the Gotham Guns.

Absolutely agree, but Shammound seems to be staying in Seattle.

Don't be surprised if the Knicks make a real push for Payton. Thats whats going around.

That's been going around for over a year though. I'll believe it when it happens.

paytons gonna cost us at least sprewell. i like the jax/ward connection, theyll be fine until jacksons contract ends. wards knee will be fine since he splits minutes with jackson, and jacksons defensive liabilities will only be half so since he splits minutes with ward. when wards on teh floor we need to run and gun, when jacksons ont eh floor we can slow it down.

I'd like to see us make a run at an uptempo pg. Williams, Claxton, or someone else who can push it. Our team is made to run w/ Spree n camby. BTW Jax is more uptempo then Ward. I can't remember the last time I saw Ward convert a layup.

I'd deal Houston for Brandon n a pick. Plus some added salary to make the contracts even if we can't get a big man for him in December.
Come strong or not at all!

I can't remember either Childs or Ward making too many layups last year. Not that we can bash Childs any longer. And the thing that really kills me about Ward, it alwasys seems like he slows things down while dribbling the ball up the court. He never pushes the ball!

Unfortunately, I think the best we could do with the Wolves is Houston and a pick for Brandon. People outside of NY know houstons value and it ain't worth a point guard like Brandon. But I would still do that deal.
