    Default Knicks offensive plays are pretty limited

    1. Pound it into Curry. Doesnt matter if hes triple teamed force the ball in there anyway. Leads to 5-10 turnovers a game.
    2. Crawford freelance. Stutterstep, Crossover, launch 20 foot fadeaway. Leads to some nasty FG nights of 4-22 for example.
    3. Marbury freelance. Marbury control all game gun away for 40. Interestingly when he does this its at a very high percentage. Unfortunately this means the entire team is frozen out so if he cant do it himself then we lose.
    4. Frye pump fake 18 foot jump shot on the right high block. What is it with this play that sucks so bad? It just reeks of soft. It will go in a few times then it wont. Its very kurt thomas like where if the shot is there, great, if not, hes useless.
    5. Francis chicken head cut off routine. Pound the ball for 22 seconds and either launch a disgusting shot or whip the ball at a teammate as the shot clock expires.
    6. Malik Rose post up or deep jump shot (can I just throw up?)
    7. Jerome James featured in the post (sadly, when he does this, it actually looks good. Is this because everything else looks so damn BAD?)
    8. Jared Jeffries offensive juggernaut. Oh god I cant take this anymore when this guy goes off on his own and either launches a deep shot with no chance or goes in and bricks a layup against a 6' tall guard.


    Have I left anything out!?!? Oh yeah, QRich deep uncontested shot. Of course I cant remember the last time he played so.... oh and the Balkman breakaway fast break off a turnover. Thats not really an offensive play though.

    You forgot about the one where nate does some crazy dribbling, and while the other team is wondering whether or not he will pass it, knicks fans everywhere know that he wont, and then he goes in for some type of stupid layup and gets blocked or turns the ball over by fumbling it -- this is one of our key plays

    Oh yeah,but if Allan Houston was taking that uncontested shot while healthy of course,you'd be happy as a pig in ****!!Wouldn't you??? He'd hit that shot 75% of the time! Better yet how 'bout Ray Ray Shuttlesworth or Rashard Lewis??? They'd hit that shot at about the same clip wouldn't they?????? That 3pt threat is what's missing from the offense! No dbl or triple teams on Chubby!!!!!!

    Let's face it, the whole team in every aspect is limited. The more I watch these players I realize that almost every player on the team is one dimensional. They are all good at one thing, and that's it.

    Curry - good low post offensivley, can't rebound or play defense
    Frye - good shooter, can't rebound or play defense
    Lee - great rebounder, can't hit an open shot
    Crawford - good shooter, can't play defense
    Jeffries - good defender, can't hit an open shot
    Balkman - good defender, can't hit an open shot
    Collins - good defender, can't hit an open shot
    Francis - good penetrator, can't pass worth a damn

    I guess Marbury and Q. Rich are the only multi-dimensional players on the team. But Q. Rich is always injured, so that just leaves Marbury.

    u kinda touched on it in number 1, but i'll add to it. they give it to curry, he's doubled, then does nothing until he gets trippled, then tries to drive to tha basket and either bricks a layup, or gets fouled at misses both free throws
