i think the knicks need an actual first option even more than that. and no i don't think anyone on this team is or will ever be that. i know this is blasphemy but it is what it is.
correct, I don't think Lonzo Ball for example fixes our issues especially late in games. He isn't breaking down a defense in the half court in the last two minutes to create for himself or others.
A PG would def be nice...but a #1 option is more important so I agree. A #1 option that is a PG is ideal. So is Lillard available
We can all agree a #1 option would be better then Ball. We do need both a #1 option and a pg. it’s also possible to get both such as Dame as you mentioned. Just hard to do. If a legit #1 option is not available (which doesn’t seem likely) then the next priority should def be upgrade at PG. someone like Ball would even work really well next to Lillard so if by any miracle we get both it would be a positive.
Guys like Derozan or Dipo are good, but aren’t really legit #1 options/best players on a championship types anyway. They are closer to RJ and Randle. No doubt they would help, but financially just expecting them to cost too much and from a fit perspective it’s not great.
