HELP WANTED: Shooting guards needed to play for an NBA team in the top city. Qualified candidates must have good ball handling skills and excellent passing abilities. Must be able to have a good view of the court to find the open man. Exceptional shooting skills are required, with the ability to nail any outside shot, while still being able to drive strong to the basket. Must be able to start immediately!!!!
I thought I would help the Knicks start looking for the guards needed to complete their backcourt since last year’s starting backcourt is gone. As of now, their starting point guard will likely be Felton with Kidd coming off the bench. We have JR Smith as a backup shooting guard but putting him in the starting line-up takes away their fire power off the bench. I think we need some starting shooting guards badly.
The other possibility is that the Knicks will decide to go with Kidd and Felton alternating roles as shooting guard and point guard. This is a poor man’s version of Walt Clyde Frazier and Earl “the Pearl” Monroe back in the 70’s before I was even born. That combo was made of superstars and it worked back then. The Knicks do not have that star firepower with the Felton-Kidd combo. Kidd is pretty old now and Felton still has a lot of proving to do.
What do you think the Knicks will do? Do you think they will continue with their bad decisions and not do anything? Based on their current management, I do not have high hopes right now. How about you? Please comment.
