    It's official...JR needs to start

    He has been insane this year. Felton is finally showing his true colors, and should be coming off the bench. Anybody else agree?

    He's perfect off the bench, no reason to change that.

    Last I checked there is only one basketball, and it belongs to melo.

    Would Kidd play the point in this roster? And why change a good thing? We are 21-8

    Lmao, Felton showing his true colors?
    He has been trying to play with hurt hands, like a lot of posters here have been saying. Now it's revealed he has had a fracture.

    Smith is on the bench cause of that spark he provides. There is no reason to change that.

    A reason to change is that Ray Felton is losing games for the Knicks. If JR and Melo are on the floor, kidd has another option to dish to.

    I like JR right where he's at.

Heís one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.Ē

    Once Amar'e comes back and hopefully provides some scoring off the bench, I'd go to Kidd, JR, Copeland, Melo, and Chandler as starters until Shumpert or Felton is back. When one of them returns he should replace JR as a starter, when the other returns he replaces Copeland.

    The IDEAL line-up when everyone is healthy is:

    1-Kidd
    2-Shump
    3-Melo
    4-Amare
    5-Chandler

    Smith, Felton, Camby, Copeland, Wallace

    Novak, Prigs, Thomas, Brewer and White out of the rotation.

    No reason to start Amar'e when Melo is dominating in the 1st quarter. I'd stick with him on the bench, if he's actually healthy then he's one of the best pick and roll guys in the league and should be the focal point of the offense when Melo and Chandler sitting. They could start Felton, Kidd, Shumpert, Amar'e, and Chandler, have Kidd check out early for JR like he always does, and then have a lineup like Kidd, JR, Novak, Amar'e, and Chandler/Camby/Sheed for early in the 2nd/4th quarter.

    When Amare is back, 1 of: Kidd-Felton-JR, which has closed out games for us, will have to sit. I would personally sit Felton because you need JR's scoring and shooting off Melo and Kidd set ups late but I'm not sure thats what Woody will do.

    Where's Melo?

    Lets be real, Amare should be starting now imo, and I want Melo to go back to the 3. I don't like him getting into foul trouble and playing down low against bigs he can't handle.

    Felton and JR will provide punch off the bench. Amare can be subbed out early in the 1st and come back in the 2nd when Melo is sitting.

    Melo actually playing the 4 usually keeps him out of foul trouble. When he is chasing the small fowards around and if he gets beat off the dribble he reaches in at times. PLaying Zach Randolph or Gasol he isn't going to play the power foward spot.But he can handle guys like David West.

    are you outa your mind????? we just played a team who has a history of come back wins....and,,,,...and!!!!! we were battling in a 97 97 one second on the clock game ...
    and we were missing 43 points from injured players and from that win you translated that into changing what has worked for a 21-8 team...????
    ....if it aint broke dont fix it.... and if you ask me ...Copeland had his finger print all over this win too you want him to start also?? without Copeland it wouldn't even be a win ...
    he did what he was supposed to do that was step up when a man is down...i give him more props ( not for the win ) but for making sure he did what James white just couldn't and can never do....and that was step up when hes needed.
