Once Baron Davis and Iman Shumpert return from injury, the Knicks will have several options for a starting backcourt. Landry Fields, Toney Douglas, Mike Bibby, Davis, Shumpert and now Jeremy Lin are the six players that will be jockeying for playing time from Mike D'Antoni.

Prior to the season opener, Newsday.com asked Knicks fans which starting backcourt they would prefer D'Antoni go with, once all players are healthy. Their starting lineups, nearly 50 percent of the time, included the veteran, Davis, and the rookie, Shumpert.

The full results:

Davis and Fields - 34%
Davis and Douglas - 9%
Davis and Shumpert - 46%
Fields and Douglas - 5%
Fields and Shumpert - 3%
Douglas and Shumpert - 3%

Our new poll asks, after Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, which Knick should average the most points this season. You can vote on the right side of this post, or by clicking here.
