The 24-year-old Murry is a defense-first guard who, at 6-foot-5, can be a terror for opposing point guards. With more playing time he would provide a much-needed attacking playing style for the Knicks at the position. That style of play is desperately needed on a team that is bogged down by Anthonyís isolation-dominant style of play.
The Knicks have nothing to lose, so they should give Murry a chance to prove himself. Barring any free agent signings, he will have to play considering Prigioni canít handle many minutes. Murry likely wonít be the second coming of Lin, but he could be a shot in the arm for a team that has completely forgotten what a decent point guard can do for a team.
