Yes, D'Antoni's style will work for the Knicks.
No, we need defense.
I don't Know; only time will tell.
this thread is unnescessary....how is curry overrated? nobody gives him props...he dosent get heat because he isnt worth it....curry has no dimension, therefore he is not one dimensional. there are no curry-sexuals, just because someone is optimistic about a player on a team they love, dosent make them a nut-hugger.....
if marbury can do no wrong, then ur a "starburian" lmao
if u like ANY other player on the team, ur a whatever-sexual
this thread needs to be closed...no1 is gonna argue for curry
1)Someone on another thread said that Curry has the potential to play like how he did in the 2006-2007 season.
2) Another person said that Curry could still average 18 points and 5 rebounds in D'Antoni's system, and that if his minutes per game went up enough, he could average 20 points and 8 rebounds.
3) Another person on this website has said that Curry is his favorite player on the Knicks.
4) Someone on one of my polls said that Curry is a top 10 NBA center.
5) Someone on another thread has said that Curry is a team player.
6) A lot of people think that Zach Randolph is the reason why Curry played poorly last year, even though Curry has always been a poor defender, rebounder, foul shooter, passer, and he's always been out of shape and turnover prone.
You and me may know Curry sucks, but there's a lot of people that don't agree. There's a lot of people that think Curry is a team player and that he deserves to be on this team more than Marbury. I think that's insane, but there's people that don't.
PS-If you want to know the names of these people that made these posts, I'll tell you through private message. I didn't feel it was necessary to shout them out.
I never said Marbury can do no wrong.
Marbury is an All Star level player that got a lot of the blame for why this team has been losing, even though Isiah Thomas traded for scrubs like Curry, Richardson, Malik Rose, and he signed scrubs like Jerome James and Jared Jeffries. He also gave Jamal Crawford a 7 year contract extension, even though he was shooting 38% from the field that year. He traded away 4 draft picks for Curry, and he traded for players with big contracts, like Jalen Rose, Steve Francis, and Zach Randolph. Jim Dolan rewarded Isiah's stupidity with a 24 million dollar contract extension.
People rarely bring those things up, yet they're always quick to call Marbury cancer. That's why I defend Marbury. I know Marbury isn't a perfect player, and I've never said he was.
nah dogg, ur one of those who are rational with ur thoughts, theres no need to send a pm, quite frankly i dont care to kno mainly because thats their opinion. I believe crawford can thrive in the new system if he has a reduced role and less minutes so he can stay fresh, others think crawford has no game and is incapable of playing at a higher level. Those that are just fans dont realize how it is playing on a team that sucks, i have....and those who ball on a regualr know that if u play with sorry guys, u dont play with passion.....if u play on a team with guys that can play, u seem to up your game and hustle more, mainly because u have to prove yourself. Personally, i wouldnt sacrifice my body and hustle on a sorry team and risk injury (not an excuse) but these things can affect you mentally.
I cosign ur post tho, and maybe i just graze over the curry love because i filter foolishness from reality while i browse this site.
you never said steph can do no wrong, but many others do. A lot of people say steph has no blame....i dont think theres need to call them out. Its quite obvious
I think Crawford could play well this year, but it all depends on his role. If D'Antoni tries to give him 39.9 minutes per game, it's not going to work out. However, if he plays Crawford 28-30 minutes, I could see him contributing in a positive way. I hope he plays well, because I'm not too high on Quentin Richardson and Mardy Collins. Their field goal percentages make Crawford look like Ray Allen, when it comes to field goal accuracy.

Talk about haters. You worship a guy that is arguably the most overpaid athelete in the known sports universe, but yet you dog guys that actually show up and play. Is Eddy overweight?? YES. Have you seen pictures of his family? He will be fighting his weight for the rest of his life. Does he still need to develop. Sure. But he is far from worthless. Remember he NEVER went to college. Back in the day he would have had four years somewhere to develop and learn to train. Instead he jumped to support his family. He should only be a 3-4 year pro at best. How long did it take Jermain O'neal to develop??? Eddy has agility and soft hands that can't be taught. Hopefully when our point guard situation is sorted out, he will be productive again. I am rooting for E-city and every other Knick fan should be to because he is our center.
This thread is pointless. After 3 years with Curry i don't see how any sane people can think he play in this league as a starter.
Getreal....i don't neccesarily agree. Most of our players sucked cuz they have no chemistry (they kinda had it before Randolph) but that could be because Isiah was a horrible coach.
You completely ignore Curry's 4.7 rebounds, .5 blocks , .2 steals, .5 assists, and 2.14 turnovers season, because all you look at is the point per game column by people's stats.
Learn to also take assists, steals, rebounds, blocks, free throw percentage, and turnovers into consideration, too.
These are a list of NBA power forwards and centers that came to the NBA straight out of high school, and this is how long it took each of them to develop their games.
1) Eddy Curry: still developing-has been in the NBA for 7 years, and he averaged 13 points, 4.7 rebounds, and .5 blocks last season.
2) Jermaine O' Neal:
5 years to develop-averaged 12.9 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks that
3) Dwight Howard: Took 2 years to develop-averaged 15.8 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks that season
4) Al Jefferson: Took 3 years to develop-averaged 16 points, 11 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks that season
5) Amare Stoudamire: Took 2 years to develop-averaged 20 points, 9 rebounds, 1.6 blocks that season
6) Tyson Chandler: Took 4 years to develop-averaged 8 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks that season
7) Kevin Garnett: Took 3 years to develop-averaged 18.5 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks that season
8) Andrew Bynum: Took 3 years to develop-averaged 13 points, 10 rebounds, and 2 blocks that season
Stop making excuses for Curry. The more you make excuses for him, the more you look like a Currysexual.
Curry has 30 million dollars left on his contract. He's more overpaid than Marbury, so just be quiet. I'd rather have an expiring contract from an All Star than 3 years from a player that is yet to live up to expectations despite being in the NBA for SEVEN YEARS.
After that murderous post, here are your today's Knicksonline.com powerrankings
