This past offseason Steph claimed in SEVERAL interviews (high or not) that he'd shoot less, average 10 points a game and dish the ball a lot more.
Yesterday he says he's going to shoot more.
So which one is it?
Me I prefer for him to score more.
What would you guys want?
10pts 8 assists 3 turnovers
18pts 6 assist 4 turnovers
I also read how Isiah has put some pick n' pop offensive scenarios with steph and zach in his playbook - which is great because that has always been a big part of steph's skillset.
Secondly - by Steph being agressive and driving to the basket more means he will be able to draw more fouls on the opposing bigs - this will then force the other team to pull them out of the game and now curry and zach can dominate even more against the 2nd string bigs.
It is extremely important for our guards to penetrate at least half the time. This is the only way to make an opposing coach switch from zone to man. Having EC and Zach means that our low post is solid, but not if teams cheat on D and zone up around those guys. We have the ball handling quickness to get through zones, so I fully expect teams to have to play in between and not commit to either zone or man defense.
If Marbury averages 20, then someone is not getting enough touches.
true to both of you I always wondered about the 20 and 8 stat. but that doesnt answer my ? is he f'd up in the head?
As long as we win this year, I don't care what kind of game Marbury plays.
This might be the first thing Marbury has said recently that makes sense. This is his strength, penetration...drawing fouls or dishing it out when the defense closes in on him. Hopefully it goes as planned.
What about winning games???
I don`t care about Starbury`s stats. The only thing that counts is winning games.
when Nate really comes into the PG i know he can be Steph should b moved to SG so he can drive all day
I thought from maybe the middle of january until the end of the season marbury looked more aggressive on offense. I think i remember him having a lot of 30 point games. He doesnt make sense a lot of the time but I dont care. Hes one of my favorite players and he needs to play the way he did in the 2nd half of the season last year. When he scores, the defense plays him tighter sometimes causing double teams leaving someone open so I defintily think he needs to look to attack and dish. He's truly a combo guard cuz he can score and he can pass. Like others have said, he needs to be that 20 points and 8 assists Marbury he was a couple years ago. I'm not worried about his defense, hes now one of the better defensive point guards in the league. I remember Metrocard sayin recently that Marburys a top 10 point guard and I agree. If it wasnt for the way he stepped up his D last year, I would be concerned about him being the starting point guard with Crawfor (No D) starting at the 2-guard. I think its best to ignore whatever marbury says or dont take it seriously cuz hes one of the last guys that us knicks fans need to worry about. We should be worried about Curry, Crawford, and possible Zach. I haven't seen enough of him to determine how good of a defender he is. He looked real good against the Celtics in the preseason game but in other games he didnt look so sharp. Over the next week, we'll get a good idea of how good this team is going to be. They need to get off to a good start this year cuz its going to be competitive.
yeah i was happy to read this, i really hated last year when he didnt take advantage of mis matches
