Hes been one of the biggest midseason acquisitions in the league. Great to see a former Mvp reinvent his game and still be a really good overall player that plays both ends even in a reduced role from his prime. Also overcame nasty false allegations from a bitter dusty ex which mustve taken a big toll on him off court
Hes been one of the premier players in the league coming off the bench for years now and now were seeing him still have that impact on a playoff team pushing them to even further heights
Rose has been excellent in his role.
But he's still an average or mediocre point guard big picture.
What this shows is how much Elfrid Payton is actually holding the Knicks back.
Decent point guard play unlocks the talents of Randle and RJ, who have both improved massively since last season. Thibs has also attributed the right roles to the role players, so the pieces fit. This team is more talented than we assumed, in addition to the fact that it's playing better than the sum of its parts.
