The infamous NY Knicks Point Guard position…a solid, long-term option has avoided the team and fanbase for what seems like forever.

We’ve had glimpses of what it feels like to have a competent piece running the show, but it was always short-lived.

We had Jason Kidd on the very tail-end of his career. We also had a couple of decent years with Raymond Felton commanding the offense, too.

And we’ll never forget Jeremy Lin’s ‘Linsanity’ year.

But then, there were the Ramon Sessions’…Elfrid Payton’s…and Jarrett Jack’s of the world that we the fans had to endure.

We were only ever as strong as who we had quarterbacking the offense and at times, the Knicks found success in spite of whoever was manning the point.

What do you think the NY Knicks’ PG rotation will look like?

But it seems as if the new front office has put more of an emphasis on finding the team several players who can break down an opposing defense and make others around them better.

We saw what our offense was able to accomplish during this past season when a high-level playmaker like Derrick Rose was in instead of the meme that is Elfrid Payton.

Without going into details about the specifics, let’s just say, the Knicks were a far superior team when Rose was in over Payton…by about a mile.

Going into the 2021-22 season, we fans have a lot to be super excited about.

Leon Rose and Co. did a bang-up job bringing in some solid rookies who are already drawing comparisons to some of the NBA’s greats.

They brought back guys like Alec Burks, Nerlens Noel, and Derrick Rose to rightfully deserved multi-year contracts.

And they upgraded the guard rotation with names like Evan Fournier and Kemba Walker.

The Knicks are officially stacked and one of the deepest teams in the league, so let’s talk about how we think Thibs will set his rotations to start the season.
