    I watched the Knicks in the 2004-2005 season, and Crawford was sick. He used to do nothing but shoot three's. That's why his overall field goal percentage was only 39% that year. Larry Brown tried to make Crawford turn into more of a team player, and it only worked for the second half of that season; he was still chucking like crazy for the first half of that year. The minute that Isiah Thomas was coach of the Knicks, Crawford went back to his old self and started chucking like crazy. By January of the 2007-2008 season, Crawford started chucking as much as he did when he first came to the Knicks in 2004.

    Jamal Crawford is 28, and he's an 8 year veteran. The way he is now is the way he will always be. D'Antoni can't make Crawford any better than he is now, because Crawford is used to overdribbling and overshooting. That's his style. You guys need to stop watching all these fantasy movies where basketball players can change their game whenever they choose. 28 year old veterans can't just change their game out of nowhere.

    I've been watching the Knicks for a long time. I know what I'm talking about. Jamal Crawford has not changed very much since coming here. The only thing that's changed is his minutes per game. His style hasn't changed, though, and his style isn't reliable enough to win games.

    I don't know what you're talking about. Jamal Crawford's shot selection has been a problem the entire time he's been here. That's why he averages 20 points on 41% shooting. Even people that support Crawford admit that he has bad shot selection, and you're trying to defend that, too?

    Here's Crawford's field goal percentages, for each season he's been here:
    2004-2005 season: fg 39.8% 3pt% 36.1%
    2005-2006 season: fg 41.6% 3pt% 34.5%
    2006-2007 season: fg 40% 3pt% 32%
    2007-2008 season: fg 41% 3pt% 35.6%

    Here's Crawford's field goal attempts per game and 3pt attempts per game, since coming to the Knicks:

    2004-2005 season: 15.6 field goal attempts per game,
    7.3 3pt attempts per game

    2005-2006 season: 11.1 field goal attempts per game,
    3.7 3pt attempts per game

    Oh, wait, Crawford saw the light. His field goal attempts finally dropped.
    Too bad it didn't last. Let's take a look at what he did in 06-07 and 07-08

    2006-2007 season: 15.01 field goal attempts per game,
    5.4 3pt attempts per game

    2007-2008 season: 17.3 field goal attempts per game,
    6.175 3 pt attempts

    You see that? Jamal Crawford's shot selection actually got worse, with time.

    Where's the big improvement in Crawford's shot selection?
    I wanna know, cause I don't see it.
    He averaged more field goal attempts last year than he did when he first came here, and he was only 1 3pt attempt shy of matching his 3pt attempts from when he first came here.

    well your stats prove your point that he has not really improvin his shot selection. Even so, I dont think Crawford had one coach that had an offensive minded ablility like D'Antoni so Crawford SHOULD improve something offensively, and if he doesnt which you believe, then he's no use to us on this team. We dont need a guy if he cant improve his offensive game with a offensive coach like Mike D. Its all on this season that determines his fate on this team cuz if he doesnt improve atelast somewhat on offense or defense im sure Donnie will put him on the trading block. I dont think Donnie has patience for the veterans.

    Theres nothing wrong with taking wild crazy shots and missing them in the middle of the game?



    You need to stop being a Suge Knight for Crawford.

    Stop doing drugs.
    Atleast do some weed.
    All that pcp is ****ing you up.

    Thats probably the least craziest shot we could find of Crawford.
    He has had much MORE clownish shots that were completely ridiculous.

    He wasn't OPEN at first.
    He had his man on him, beat him off the dribble and all he needed to do was take a lay up.

    What would of been smarter:

    A) Simple Lay up
    B) Circus shot with low % chance of going in?


    Exactly.

    It was a stupid shot.

    I'm tired of breaking down simple logical things for you to understand the basics of Crawford's failure.

    If you couldn't see this from the beginning, you're completely lost.
