HEY YO...WHAT DOES JAMAL LOOK LIKE A FROG????
SMH @ Crawford trying to smash big black dudes...Crawford = homo???
CLASSIC CRAWFORD DEFENSE
Crawford became our best player/go to guy by default- he's the best of the worst. Right now on pure talent probably Marbury is the best on the team (at his position) and thats not saying much. Crawford lacks good decision making and court vision let alone he has no idea how to play solid defense and has an inconsistant game AT BEST. He's under the microscope because he's our first option (especially w/o Marbury) and don't get me wrong he's not entirely garbage but he's no superstar. He lacks a good all around game and to be the main go to guy just highlights his shortcomings. He's one of many avg. players on this below avg. team.
We need a bonified superstar. I read a post that defended Crawfords' efforts in keeping the team in a few games (by default) and it said it was hard to play on a team when others suck so much (and I agree) but also I will add real "superstars" find a way to not only still put up solid numbers but force others to step their games up also. Crawford is a Sixth man on a playoff team a starter on a lower tier team but doesn't have the complete skills to be team leader.
THINK ABOUT IT!!
The question should not be if MSG watches Knicks games. The question should be if you watch Knicks games.
Jamal Crawford averages 5 assists per game, in 40 minutes.
Being that he spent a lot of time running the point, those are horrible assist numbers, for 40 minutes.
At that rate, it would take Crawford 80 minutes average 10 assists.
Jamal Crawford is no leader. Every team that he's led in scoring has turned worse than ever. The Chicgo Bulls were 30-52, in the 2002-2003 season. The following season, Jamal Crawford led the Bulls in scoring, and they finished 23-59. In the 2006-2007 season, the Knicks were 33-49. When Jamal Crawford led the team in scoring, in the 2007-2008 season, the Knicks finished 23-59.
Jamal Crawford is a role player. That's why he's never going to average 20 points ever again. Mike D'Antoni isn't stupid enough to play him 40 minutes a game, like Isiah Thomas did. Jamal Crawford is not the best player on this team. He's an iterim lead scorer, just like Curry. Remember when Curry led the Knicks in scoring? What happened to him now?
Starbury is going to lead the team in scoring this season, or if not, Randolph or Gallinari will.
jamal crawford does not spend a lot of time running the point, what the hell are u watching???jamal crawford majority of the game played off the ball, why would u take the only thing he can do which is score away from him???dont confuse him having the ball alot wit him playing the point
#1- Jared Jeffries never ran the point, last year.
#2- I said that Crawford MOSTLY PLAYED SHOOTING GUARD, so I don't know what your point is.
#3- Jamal Crawford played both guard positions, last year.
Why? Because Marbury was injured.
#4- Get a life, and stop trying to look for arguments with people. What's next? You're going to say that Eddy Curry never played center last year?
#5- Now I know why metrocard always attacks you. You look for the dumbest and smallest thing to argue about. Even Toons knows that Crawford played BOTH shooting guard and point guard, last year, while Marbury was injured.
I said that he spent a lot of time at the point, which is a fact. I also said that he mostly played shooting guard. Here's a direct quote of one of my posts:
"What have you been watching? Nate Robinson, Jamal Crawford, and Fred Jones all took turns playing point guard, while Marbury was out. Jamal Crawford played shooting guard, most of the time, but he played a lot of point guard. Maybe you didn't notice, because you was so in love with Crawford's game, but I noticed. Who was taking Crawford's ability to score away from him? Are you claiming that point guards can't score? He scored, while he played point guard and shooting guard. That's a fact."
Try again, cause that was a weak attempt by you to gain hype on this site.
P.S.- Jamal Crawford was the starting point guard for the Knicks, in every game in January, after Marbury left. Look up the boxscores, if you want.

I'm not making this up. These are facts. If you can't handle the truth, because you love Jamal Crawford, that's your problem. He started in other games, at point guard, by the way. I just don't feel like checking all the boxscores. That's for you to do, since you think people are making things up.
