Marbury must go!
If your big men can't get the ball...it's your point guard fault. When was the last time you saw Marbury drive, get the oposing teams big men in the air and dish off a pass under the basket for an easy dunk? Never! His assists are never easy shots for his teamates...He's the only "elite" point guard in the league that never gets doubles in assists...He can't even push the ball well. I can name 10 point guards that I rather/better:
They, with the exception of Iverson don't have the one on one skills as Marbury does... But this is a team sport and Marbury isn't a team player. Therefor, he shouldn't be in a position where the ball goes to his hands every play and asked to run an offense. For the knicks to do well with him, you'd have to think back when everyone was out last year and they played Dallas at their how and Marbury had something like 50. If the knicks were to be successful with Marbury, they would have to start him with:
That's the only lineup that would work with Marbury because they're all good defenders, high energy and won't need the ball to score and be affective. But this lineup would never happen.
I would just let Marbury go...I don't care if Boston takes him and they win a championship with him...It's about the knicks! Crawford should be the point guard on this team...He's the only player that can get the ball to Curry for easy points int he paint...Richardson should start at SG not SF so he can take advantage of his size on smaller guards. Balkman should start at SF we all know why. Lee should start at PF because of his rebounding and passing abilities. And Curry should start at center. Zach should be first off the bench along with Nate. The only other that I'd play is Chandler and that's it! I know Nate is a hot head but it's because he doesn't play. He's doesn't know his role on the team... If he knows he'll be in there often he'll be more level headed.
Bottom line Marbury has to go! He is the problem on this team...He will never be a leader on a basket ball court! No one plays well with him.
Parker has Duncan
Nash has Amare
Ford has Bosh
Williams has Boozer
All superior to Curry and Randolph.
You don't get ALOT of assist playing with Curry and Randolph. Hinrich was getting 5 assist per game with Curry in Chicago. Jack wasn't getting that many assist playing with Randolph last season either, same with Damn Stoudimire.
What games are you watching anyway? Marbury rarely penatrates anymore. We all see is Curry and Randolph get touches. Is it Marbury's fault that Curry and Randolph always are inefficient with the ball? Ask yourself that whenever you see Randolph brick a shot or trying to do some off balance dumbass shot or when Curry misses a soft weak efforted LAY UP instead of dunking it because he's so out of shape.
Can Curry or Randolph even dunk anymore? They're so out of shape...you should rewatch the Knicks and come back and edit this thread. They're so many wrong things said.
No PG in the NBA would help this team. Isiah's game plan to feed the **** out of Curry. That leads to a lot of turnovers, slow paced offense, and only 90 points per game. I really feel bad for you as a follower of this team supposely you can't even figure out whats wrong with them. I guess all the suffering I watch, I atleast have some accurate assesment of the team and can break down the problems we're having. I watch this team constantly even when we're getting beat up. I've seen OUR weakness and it begins with individual players. The weakest links are in order
Everyone else is a + and I wouldn't mind keeping them.
