    This signing was for all the soft white fans wanting to see someone like them.

    Will be very irrelevant here.

    Pablo is what he is. A fundamentally sound ball handler, passer and defender. He shoots ok, but he's A+ locker room presence, cheerleader on the bench and break in case of injury PG.

    I like the signing.

    I knew we signed him before Woj. Saw him at Luby's off Westheiner rockin Steph Curry's new shoe and a Life Alert. Maybe Pepsi could save some money. He could be in those Kyrie Irving "Uncle Drew" commercials and not wear makeup.

    We always have a soft spot in our hearts for super duper cheerleaders riding the pine.

    looks like the clips upgraded their backup pg hole with felton. Don't know why morey prefer prig over a much younger felton.

    Ahhh that's right, cause Prg's more familiar with the rockets' system.

    I have read this ("Prigioni familiar with Rockets system") a few times... but is that true? The Rockets have implemented a significantly different system since he player here and I am not sure but I don't think he was at NY when D'Antini was there...

    Prigioni didn't play for D'Antoni...

    Mar 15, 2012 - Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni resigns

    Jul 24 2012 - Knicks sign point guard of Argentina's national team

    ^^^These are the type of individuals who do not know how to build a team! The best deals or FAs are made after the higher priced FAs have signed. If what dwight is saying is true about Cyberx saying IT was offered for Terrence Jones and Morey didn't take the offer, then that's on Morey too.

    I have ALWAYS said, Morey is too analytical and since he does not have a true basketball background, he has NO idea of how to construct a roster......THE RECENT PABLO SIGNING IS PROOF! It makes 100%, absolute, NO earthly sense what so ever! And anyone on this board who backs this decision is just as off base as Morey.

    All I'm hearing is he plays good defense and he is a good locker room presence. People, at 40 yrs old, who is he going to guard???? And as far as a locker room presence, isn't that's what Nene and Ariza is for??? Older players who can let younger players know the pitfalls of the NBA Season, what to look far, etc? All you need is two.

    This signing should have been Felton, Chalmers, etc. at the least. But as Verbal Christ was saying, it's July and maybe Morey was going on Vacation and he wanted to complete the roster before he left. It's only a backup PG spot.:rolleyes:

    Your right Felton would of turned this franchise around... Pablo had the highest floor of any of the remaining free agents we could of signed. He also has a lower ceiling, that even an ant couldn't crawl under.

    I'm impressed that signing a 39 year old third string guard could create 14 pages of conversation.

    LOL. He's SUCH a game changer.
    Lebron, Durant, Curry, Felton. . . .

    I just got depressed after watching that. I can't believe how we went from such an exciting team to watch to the **** show we were last year.
