to be honest, i liked crawford coming off the bench but i also had no problem with him starting in 04-05. this year i think richardson is better suited to start as sg, not francis who will probably spend his last season in ny this year. crawford was our first option off the bench and contributed 15 ppg. however richardson is a bigger bodied guard who definitly has more defensive abilities than crawford. given the shot opportunities this year with a much rejuvinated marbury and a pass first mardy collins richardson should easily be able to avg 20 ppg. i think jamal is better suited to be a 6th man pg.
