we don't know if DLee is the best since none of us have watched the Zach and Eddy show...
And yes Starting is a BIG THING! ask Marbury & Curry with Frye, Jefferies, and Francis? Big Joke lineup. LOL
The Knicks had a 23 WIN season because of a million different Starting lineups.
The Knicks had a 33 WIN season because of their Starters failure in the first or third quarter.
Do I need to bring-up the Knicks WIN & LOST record with David Lee as a Starter?
For one second think of Zack, Balkman, Nate, and Collins comming off the bench vs Knick opositions. Thats 35 + points and 18 rebounds off the bench per game.

while this guys paints a bleak picture of 08 - 09... i think some of his assumptions are faulty... he said franchise is more productive than steph, q and craw for instance...
but he did mention that if Zach and Curry play their average mpgs next year... 36 and 35 respectively... there's 25 minutes available at 4 and 5...
here's where it gets interesting... when Lee plays at least 24 minutes... we were 21 - 22... when he plays less we were 12 - 27...
if IT takes away just 3 minutes from Curry and ZBo... Lee can average 30 minutes per game... while keeping Z and Curry happy and productive... we can be close to .500 with just that move... add our experience from this year...
Kiyaman... Lee (10 - 15 pts.; 10 - 15 rebs), Balkman (6 - 8 pts, 6 - 8 rebs), Collins (3 - 6 pts, 3 rebs, 2 assts), Robinson (10 - 12 pts; 2 rebs; 3 - 4 assts)... 29 - 37 pts, 21 - 28 rebs and 8 or so assists... this would also be our running team... a nice change of pace from our slow half court starters... i like our roster... wear them down with our starters... then bring in the bench to run them ragged...
Crawford is a 32% 3pt shooter, he isn't a GOOD 3pt shooter.
Crawford is not worth a top 10 pick. He's a 27 year old one dementional SG who averages 17 ppg on 40% FG and 32% 3pt. He plays wreckless on the court and is a player who keeps teams from advancing to the playoffs. Never made the playoffs because when you play Crawford as your first or second option, your bound to lose. As we saw with Chicago and New York.
Why are the hell are you typing in the caps?

Very good point about Crawford, that is why I dont care if Chandler was drafted before D-Nichols, I would sign D-Nichols just to backup Crawford at the SG position. He may start out slow in the beginning with 8 to 12 MPG but I'm sure by Midseason just playing the SG position D-Nichols will be very progresive in midseason with 18 to 20 MPG. His peremeter defense may turn the entire Knick Team around.
You cannot have Crawford and Curry on the same team, its not going to work, ever. They're like a circus version of Kobe/Shaq
Yawn! Crawford is not as bad as you guys make him out to be. The only part of his game that needs work is his shot selection. Crawford is solid on defense, has great handles and works well with Curry and Marbury. You do not want to leave Crawford open. He's a solid clutch player. He aint Houston or Ray Allen but Crawford is good. That being said I'd trade him and Richardson for the right player.
Jamal Crawford dribble the ball way to much in every halfcourt set.
And Marbury and the coach (Wilkins, Herb, Brown, and Isiah) does nothing about Crawford 7 seconds or more dribbling in a halfcourt offense.
Marbury does the same thing when he is aghausted in the 4th quarter.
The Knicks have to wake up their Backcourt players in the passing game this 2007-8 season.
The Frontcourt Bigmen Curry & Zack are going to have to start passing that ball back out or pass to each other this 2007-8 season.
