    Nyk Logo Jeffries a Knick. Is there room for Richardson?

    As I'm sure you all know Jefferies is now a Knick. According to NY Daily News, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Jefferies is expected to start over Jalen Rose and Quenton Richarson. So the question is why do we need Richardson? Knicks have been reportidly shopping Richardson but have not found any takers due to his low scoring and back problems. Wow, he even sounds like a Knick!

    I think it's a smart move to start Jefferies. He brings the defensive presence we need and does not require the ball at all. This still does not solve our abundance of guards problem but it looks like a step in the right direction.

    I think this is a good signing...I really like Q Rich...and not sure who will take him. We certainly will have more luck trading Rose.

    This is a good article about the latest deal

    First off.. and not to strike anger into any of H20 leg humpers but Jared Jeffries has taken number 20.. I just HOPE we have better luck with this number 20.

    Second. Isiah is trying to ship him because well Marbury and him don't get along. Pretty stupid. I actually think we should move Quentin to a better position for him at Shooting Guard and heavily pursue shipping out Steve Francis. No one will take Q (this side of Portland) so lets ship out Steve. NOW if we could somehow package Q to get Randolph from them then I wouldnt mind it so much. But I think first and foremost we should send Steve out and move Q to SG.

    thats what im saying, Q is not a SF though he is capable to play it but he is a SG and probably the best SG the knicks have(him and crawford), if the knicks plan to play phoenix kind of game why not keep em when he had a great year wit the offense, he went through alot last season, give em a break

    I disagree completely. If we trade away francis and move Q-Rich to the SG then not only will his chances of getting hurt (like everyother year in his career) increase but if and when he gets hurt who will we play at the 2 then? I say we start marbury and francis. Two both durable and offensively powerful guards that can push the ball and create havoc in the backcourt. Then we can bring Q-Rich off the bench so we won't have to demand much out of him. Lets face it...Q-Rich's game has be scarred by injuries. Maybe last year being the exception. But if you trade francis away now...then that might cost us at the end of the season...

    I think we will be quite alright without Steve Francis. With a guard rotation of Crawford, Richardson, Marbury, Robinson, Collins and even Rose.. I think well be plenty okay if we trade away Francis.

    Push the backcourt yes. But small? very. a backcourt with neither guard over 6'2 is not something to hope for. Especially when neither play D or can shoot the three ball to spread the floor. Its not going to work.

    Scarred by injury? I really cant remember one season past 02-03 where he has played 60 games or less. I mean we all know he has a bad back.. but not to the point where he misses a ton by it NOR where hell hurt our team cause of it COMPARED to Francis' bad attitude, me first, lack of height, 3pt shooting and defense ability.

    We can get a lot more for Francis then we can get for Q (granted anyone will take Q). Im sticking with shipping him out.

    How about we ship them both out. Ship out Richardson and Francis. That will solve our guard problem wont it?

    the knicks have a SG named jamal crawford and last year was the first year Q missed 20+ games in his career, stop acting like he is injury prone

    Well Jared Jeffries is doesnt play the same way as Quentin. What ever Jared cant be able to do Quentin is the back up. And Jalen has not need to be there. Isiah should just trade hime for a center or something.

    So sorry da truth...you're wrong. You aren't 'da truth' this time. Q-Rich missed 22 in 02-03, 17 in 03-04, and 27 in 04-05... so no I'm not acting like he's injury proned...he is injury prone
