sheed is going to be HUGE come playoff time.
WE ARE THE NEW YORK KNICKS!
Back to your question I would start smith at the 3 or the 2 and do a felton, shumps, jr, melo, chandler lineup with priggs, kidd, brewer, sheed, amare off the bench. Both lineups would be scary.
I love how OP is saying we should play Sheed less and everyone jumps in saying we need to play him more lol
Idk when this was made but there's been times I wanted she'd over chandler and wanted shed with chandler and melo with Kidd and Felton ..for size ..
Amare melo and shed would be a very tough grouping to play against since we have height and power plus all has a decent range to shoot or well assuming stat can shoot when he comes back lol
SHEED!! ** ..stupid auto correct.
It really is insane at how well conditioned Sheed is.
GO NEW YORK GO NEW YORK GO
If Sheed was in better condition, he's shown stretches of being capable of being a starter in this league. I know he's had his rough spots, like the Spurs game where his 3 didn't fall (even though they were wide open and he's in there to take that shot), but he's been big for the Knicks.
Obviously he was there for them in the Pacers game. The Knicks were basically Melo and Sheed's offense in the 1st half when points were hard to come by (Raymond had a stretch too where he got it going). His ability to score is obviously there, BUT he may also be valuable in the size he brings around the basket. I mean most valuable, because he can defend guys like Gasol and not get forced under the basket like pretty much every other one of the bigs (Tyson included was getting bullied) and he took it to them on the other end downlow.
I said all that to say this....this guy was supposed to be the 13th or 14th man off the bench (between he and Kurt ). How's that for depth. The Knicks have guys who can legitimately play the 4/5 in Tyson/Camby/Amare/Sheed/Kurt/ plus Melo at 4. A killer rotation for swing players including Melo and Shump, and a killer pg trio (maybe can include Shump there).
The versatility and depth is scary
