      TelegraphedPass:
      Fisher may fit with Knicks?

      DO. NOT. WANT.

      Seriously. Yeah he hit a few big shots in the last series but that guy is so cooked. I’d even rather keep running Toney (GASP!) out there and pray for a resurrection of his jumper than bring in Fisher. I’d rather Fisher be the head coach than the back up PG.

      Gimme gary neal or any other younger backup instead….after bib by and davis hopefully our injury prone washed up PG experiment is over. I’d take ray Allen if he’s willing to take less money however

      As long as Lin sticks around, I could really give a hoot about the backup’s age. I’m more interested in someone who can defend, take care of the ball, and shoot the three. It’s really too bad our FSU alum has fallen off of a cliff. Perhaps DJO could fill that spot. I can’t recall how he is in terms of taking care of the rock.

      responding to someone on the previous thread..you have to out of your mind to rather have ibaka/harden/bosh/wade/westbrook over melo. Wade a few years ago perhaps but not now. Do you think we win that game against the bulls or against the heat in playoffs with any of these guys. Not saying they are bad players but at this stage in their careers none of them are carrying the team throughout april…ibaka’s career game was scoring like 25 pts..
