Fans are in a rush to make moves but Walsh is deliberate when it comes to adding pieces. Adding a backup point guard in theory seems like an easy decision, but it isn't. To me, a guy like Luke Ridnour would be perfect to come in off the bench, run the pick and roll and knock down threes. Ramon Sessions is also a player I've been high on for a while and would be a steal in the right situation. But the team isn't in a contractual position to do either. Bringing in a player for 1 year is an option but the Knicks have been on the rental road for over 2 years now. I'd expect them to improve the roster down the road but not the immediate future.
"I also think we have to get better," Walsh said.
At 18-14 and sitting in second place behind the Boston Celtics in the Atlantic Division, the Knicks, whose roster overhaul in the offseason left many in the league uncertain of what they were capable of, have surprised to date. Able to overcome a 3-8 start with a subsequent five-game win streak, they have survived downturns and stretched upswings with an offense that ranks first in the league in scoring. They will look to avoid a third straight loss when they face the Indiana Pacers Sunday at the Garden.
"We have bigger aspirations," said coach Mike D'Antoni...
And for those wondering about Jerome Jordan, the 2nd round pick from Tulsa.
