Eye on Basketball Podcast: New York Knicks' offseason report
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss the offseason of the New York Knicks, try to explain why they got Andrea Bargnani, and figure out their top lineup.
The New York Knicks had a bit of a confusing offseason and Matt Moore joins me to try to suss it out. The Knicks brought in Andrea Bargnani in a trade for Steve Novak, other role players, and draft picks. Was this the right move to make? Wouldn't this move make more sense if Amar'e Stoudemire wasn't on the team? How do you find minutes for both players when Carmelo Anthony is best as a power forward? And was the J.R. Smith signing worth the money?
The lineup and rotation for the Knicks could be a tricky one to handle. Who should be the starting lineup for this Knicks' roster? Do you go more traditional and put Anthony at the 3 while bringing Stoudemire in at the 4? Is Metta World Peace an option to establish some defense? Should Iman Shumpert remain in the starting lineup? How do you find the balance with this team from quarter to quarter?
We discuss all of this, plus J.R. Smith's offseason activities, figuring out a balance between offense and defense throughout the season, and Melo's natural position.
