yea this way our best 3 point shooter will be out for the season by december-january (no later) for rushin himself BACK into the starting 5. i dont care what he says he shouldnt be playing more then 25 mins. we have too many players that can play the 2 or 3 and theres no reason to risk q's health. and was it just me or did anyone else think @ times that jamal's outside shot was lookin better than q-rich's. i know jamal had some awful shot selection but in adding zach to the squad i think it will limit crawford from launchin up as many bad shots as he did last season. i agree jamal hardly played defense last season. im sure he knows he needs to step it up. but lets put it this way half the haterz on this site were sayin stephon doesnt know how to play defense. i think he proved them wrong last year by being one of the best defenders we had. bottom line is isiah has said our team is being built around curry. no player on this team makes curry shine more than jamal crawford. for that reason alone i think he needs to be on the court from the opening tip. crawford should be playing about 30+ mins a game.
2. and what would you do put balkman at the sf position?
im not even against that, im really not. i just think lee showed so much improvement last season that he deserves to be starting over him. lee started @ the 3 every game during our last 6 game winning streak (which was many moons ago) so when u guys say he's too slow to play that position i dont think u know what the hell ur talkin about. both players play with the same intensity, hustle.. both players rebound the ball like monsters. either way u look @ it, either balkman and randolph or lee and randolph will own the glass on both ends of the floor. no one on our bench last season brought more energy onto the court than b-man and thats why i would keep it that way. marbury and lee seem to have a great chemistry jus like jamal and eddy. i named those 5 players because i think they are the best 5 players we have. they need to learn how to co-exist and each of them needs to learn their role. its not like we dont have a great defender at dam near each position that could backup the starters if their d is lackin...
sg- q-rich / jones
sf- balkman / chandler
and even tho nate doesnt play defense he was still one of our most energetic players coming off the bench.
in case you dont remember how isiah coached, size didnt mean jack**** 2 him. he would put 4 guards on the court with renaldo balkman without thinking twice. so i dont think anything is written in stone. this is jus my opinion. and metro try n show a lil respect b4 ur mother is the next one i f*ck
