Listen Man, stop with the garbage.. you want to quote per 40 stats to me ... okay here is a good one for you per 40 freaks who think that is actually any kind of realistic stat:Its not really my opinion, its more what I know is better for this team. Crawford hasn't lead us to any playoff appearances.
You would have Crawford over Barnes and Carroll, because you like Jamal. Thats opinion. You brought no information or reason why you would choose Crawford over them.
Caroll and Barnes are cheaper.
They're actually bigger guards than Crawford.
They don't dominate the ball and commit painful to the brain turnovers.
They're role players. Crawford may have more talent than them, but Caroll and Barnes would fit better on this team cause they know they're role. Crawford has no identity on the basketball court. He plays by himself most of the time. Throwing an alley oop to Curry doesn't make him the best teammate or even the best passer on the team. I've seen Crawford ignore David Lee alot of times when he was open. Guys like Collins and Marbury pass it to everyone, even a guy like Jefferies. Crawford kills our ball movement, and I don't want that on my team. He doesn't understand the concept for 5 man team basketball. Therefor he needs to go somewhere and kill other team's ball movement.
Q and Lee are better than Crawford and added more to the team than Crawford could do. Scoring wasn't a problem, when we lost Lee and Richardson, we lost our consistency on both sides. Marbury, Richardson, Curry, Lee and Balkman were the core of this team that help us to a couple of wins.
How do you know Crawford would of lead the Knicks to the playoff if he was injured? Stop assuming and predicting things now. Thats something you and I don't know, so bother bringing it up. Lets keep this discussion on things we know about.
32% is a terrible percentage for a 3pt shooter, you can't even ignore that. If was 35-36%, then I wouldn't care, cause Jamal chucks alot, and thats average. But 32% is terrible. The floor was spaced out? For what? For an iso chuck and miss play by Crawford? Or what about his signature traveling move? Oh man, that move is so nasty...its just great when Crawford carries the ball and hear the ref blow that whistle so loudly, don't you love it?
It was a typo, I meant to say game. Like I said. "So teams shouldn't give a **** the first 3 quaters and just play their offense to the end? Is this your defense for Crawford? Oh yes, he's a "Shooting" guard, he's suppose to shoot, now what are point guards suppose to do, point their fingers? Please man, Crawford SUCKS at shooting, so we don't need him to shoot. You don't let a 40% FG and 32% 3pt chucker continually shoot the rock, thats just plain stupid."
If you never saw Carroll play when why even speak of him? You obviously don't know who you're talking and comparing Crawford to someone you have no history off.
I don't even know what a trick pony is.
Look at it like this.
We need a shooter. We don't need a guy who can create his own shot, we have Marbury, Richardson, Robinson, Randolph, Collins, Curry, Chandler and even Nichols shown he could create his own shot.
We need that shooter to be a role player and not take away shot attempts for our scoring options like Curry, Randolph and Marbury.
We need an efficient shooter, not a streaky chucker.
Caroll is a better rebounder than Crawford, and has equally or better per 40 stats than Jamal.
6.1 SMP(shots made per)
14.6 SP(shots per)
4.6 FTMP(free throw made per)
5.1 FTP(free throw per)
FG% - .401
3P% - .342
FT% - .830
6.4 SMP(shots made per)
16 SP(shots per)
3.0 FTMP(free throw made per)
3.7 FTP(free throw per)
So what information can we observe from this?
We we now see Carroll is as productive as Crawford, scoring wise, while taking less shots per game and committing less turnovers per game. Thats a huge plus.
Carroll has better shooting percentages from everywhere in the court, compared to Crawford.
Carroll is also a better rebounder than Jamal.
Jamal is a very soft player, we understood this a long time ago(you better had understand that and not come back with me some nonsense). Jamal is proven to be even more of a softer player since we now see Carroll has the ability to get to the free throw line more frequently and much better than Jamal. Jamal's quickness, agility, and crossovers are usually if he doesn't get to the free throw line enough. Jamal Crawford goes to the FT line 3 times a game every time he plays close to 40 minutes? What a waste. We don't need a guy camping around the perimeter all the time, who can't even hit his 3pt shots consistently.
No one called Carroll a better defender or even a good defender. They're both ****ty defenders. Would you guys kindly shut the **** up about the most irrelevant things and get to the real points, thanks.
Crawford playing 38 minutes a game = close basketball games, no matter how well we play, Crawford is always giving the opposition the chance to score with his turnovers and bad shot selection that lead to easy open basketballs in the fast break. Teams who play Jamal Crawford this many minutes usually finish under 10 games and under or even more than 10 games. The Bulls led by Crawford as their first option were never successful. Same with our Knicks. Its a simple concept to understand, Crawford will never help us be a sucessful team now, and in the future.
lilman, don't get emotional. Name calling, screaming like a girl on the computer doesn't proven you point. Throw information at me and correct me for my errors, cause I do make errors as you saw with the typo I make.
Why do you want to see Carroll create his own shot when we got 5-7 other guys on the team who can do that themselves? We need a guy who can hit an open shot, consistently. Jamal isn't that guy.

And I saw what you saw of Matt Carrol when he played against the Knicks... Those are all games I saw - and that is all the games you saw... Yes I am telling you exactly what you saw and didnt see.
