For those of you that thought Marbury wasn't what the Knicks needed from the beginning, you were right. He's talented but if you watch him, he clearly looks for his shot first which is one of the contributing reasons why we are losing. You don't need to take the ball all the way to the perimeter just to pass to the two guard. Yes he can score but scoring aint for point guards. We need changes starting with the most tradable asset in our starting line up, Jamal Crawford. Don't get gassed off of one good game by Crawford. He's flaky and Thomas had no idea of how to work this line up.
Remember that I wrote this because the Knicks wont consistently win until they do this. BENCH CRAWFORD! Start Balkman! Play around with the line up. Jeffries can play four positions, so far, he's one of the best players on the team hustle and defense wise. There have to be at least four teams that need guards. Lets ship a few of ours out.
We could trade him.
Crawford is playing well, which is why now is a perfect time to put him on the trading block. If Thomas could find a way to bring in Artest and keep Lee, Balkman and Jeffries, we would have what we need defensively. It sounds like a stretch but I can see Crawford/Robinson or Crawford/Collins for Artest. Look past this one good game. Crawford and Marbury together WILL FAIL. One must go.
