Remember we are looking for the perfect fit unless you are replacing Melo with MJ here.

There are soo many routes you could go with that team. You can decide to replace Fields with a guy like Reggie Miller to get some shooting in there. You could replace Lin with someone like Walt Frazier to get a playmaker and defender in there. You could replace a guy like Amare with someone like Duncan so that you have an inside and outside combo.

Michael Jordan

He would fit, but he wouldn't be the perfect fit because simply that now takes the ball out of Melo's hands and how effective would Melo be without the ball if he is not a great defender or playmaker for others?

I would remove Tyson Chandler, although he is having a great impact on this team and replace him with Patrick Ewing. The only reason why I chose Chandler is that he has a ring already. This lineup will almost guarantee Ewing a ring. Plus, he gives us more scoring and we lose nothing defensively.

This is what I was thinking before I opened the thread and noticed they were talking about any player at all..Jordan was my first pick but the obvious one as well

I'm going a really different route here.



Lin/Stat/Chandler can dominate the pick and roll. Fields can hit his open jumpers.

I would take out Melo and pop in Bruce Bowen. Dominant wing D and can hit the corner 3. Last thing the Knicks would need in a swap is another shooter who doesn't really play D.

Aside from MJ

Reggie Miller. They get a spot up shooter that Lin could kick out to on his penetrations.

Nice choice, but I think you could have chosen an elite defender with better offense.

Pippen would be better.

This is what I wanted to post. Ewing deserves a team with someone like Melo in it. Amare will force to improve defensively with Patrick next to him. Surely a guard would be the ideal fit, but for sentimental reasons, Patrick needs to be added here.

But this goes more to a question like "add a current player to the 1995 Knicks", then I'd add Melo, since Patrick-Oak-Mason was just too delightful, can't imagine Ewing without at least one very good defending forward next to him.

That team would need a shooter whos willing to play off the ball, doesn't want the bull as much.
My picks for the Sg position would be:
Ray Allen
Reggie Miller
Alan Houston

The posters who said that the team needed a Tmac or Jordan must be joking. With amare and melo already on the squad sleeping with the ball..and adding another ballhog..how does that make sense?

I can agree with your assessment of adding TMAC to the squad, however I disagree with your claims that MJ wouldn't help the team. MJ would help any team and any team would reap the benefits from his greatness. The Knicks would adjust to his game. I'd start Shumpert and MJ in the backcourt and have Lin come off the bench just as the Bulls had Jordan and Harper in the backcourt. Jordan and Shump can share ball handling duties. Lin and Fields would upgrade the 2nd unit. Lin has also made Jeffries somewhat decent offensively.

ray allen in his prime all day it would be like an automatic three wiht the way lin drives and kicks out to the three point shooter. the double team on melo and the dominamce in the pick roll, the post with tyson there is a problem in all aspects of the game.
