    Well, Stephon yesterday said he expects to be moved to SG, therefore, this is a valid topic. Problem is, our starting point guard may still not be on the team (eric snow?).

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Nate start at PG before year end. This kid is ready and it'll be tough to keep him on the bench. Him and Marbury may seem small together, but offensively they may be unstoppable.

    What is certain is that Jamal will not be in the starting lineup because Q has more game and TT will start in order to pump up his trade value.

    On Eric Snow, he's a true point with nice D, so he would be a nice addition to our team.

    If Nate ends up starting one day at point and Steph at the two guard... we have a VERY undersized back court at 5'9 and 6'2... I know Nate can hussle on the D, it would be very interesting how this would work... I doubt it'll happen though

    According to the NY Post, while playing for Brown in the Olympics, Brown told Marbury that "he was acting like he was affraid to shoot the ball and the he should take more shots!" Brown also said, according to Marbury " If I ever coach you, I'll move you to two gaurd." Those are the facts according to NY Post. Now for what really matters, my oppinion. lol
    Marbury is a shooter. He's quick and he loves to dash to the whole. If a point gaurd can make 31 point on a semi consistant basis, in most cases he shouldn't be a point gaurd. Magic's the only exception that I can think of. *** Remember this is the same thing Larry Brown did with A.I.***
    I beleive this will turn out great! Here's how it will look.
    New York Knicks [curent] Starting line up.
    C Jerome James
    PF Mike Sweetney (this guy should not be starting)
    SF Quenton Richardson
    SG Stephon Marbury
    PG Jamal Crawford
    Problem: No real bench!
    As far as I can see Sweetney is the only week link. He's a very good back up. Not a starter.

    Our backcourt is nice whichever way Larry goes. Steph and Q, Jamal and Steph (SG), Nate and Steph, etc.

    What we need is an upgrade upfront. Sweets just doesn't cut it. Most of his boards are from his own missed shots. Need someone taller at stronger on D.

    As far as our bench goes, I think it looks great. Nate, Jamal, Ariza, Lee and Rose all bring goods. I can't understand how someone can criticize our bench. The hole is upfront.

    thats not true that sweetney cant be a starter. in terms of offense and rebounding, he will be fine. he can score 10 to 15 points and get 7 to 10 rebs a game. the problem is that hes not very athletic and gets burned by quicker opponents, such as kenyon martin or kevin garnett. thats why he ends up in foul trouble so often. i think he can overcome his lack of athleticism by becomming savvy and using what hes got (size/strength) and pushing guys around and being a little more phyisical and learning what kinds of fouls he can get away with that the refs wont call. im really looking forward to what sweets does if he gets the starting job and decent mins. i think he will live up to my expectations.

    at least hes not a guy who requires the ball. mo taylor is yet another offensive minded guy to go along with marbs craw and qrich, that wouldnt be a good combo. he shouldnt play the 4 as a starter. sweetney will get a lot of offensive rebounds when those guys miss their chuck shots, he will fit in well with those guys. he will get a lot of put backs and garbage points.

    I'd rather start Rose and bring Sweets off the bench.

    I had Sweets on my fantasy team last year. I think he got to start a couple of games. He would put up some nice numbers in one game and then stink up two or three games playing more than 25 mins and putting up like 5 points and two boards. I eventually waived him in favor of Troy Murphy.

    I insist that a backcourt of Steph and Nate, although very small, may be unstoppable. Nate plays D and rebounds nicely for a guard. So I'd like to see them together for at least 15 mins a game.

    I think he can start, but I don't think he's starting material just b/c of his height. I think him being a back up is an excellent idea, someone posted before we need more deph on the bench, and that would be it. I don't think he should start, not saying he can't, b/c he definatley has the talent to and can, I just think he's better off....

    Sweetney had his share of highlights last year. remeber how many times it looked like he would lose controll of the ball, but he simply improvised w/ some fakes and eventually finished w/ a klean layup? I always hear the announcers talking about how sweetney has good strong firm hands. Mike Sweetney seems like an alright pf. he's a quiet guy. He's been taking his weight problem seriously, and its beginning to show. He's still young. Hopefully Brown pressures him into getting in shape.
