Crawford is a Sixth Man, and the third option, behind Joe Johnson, a surefire all star, and Josh Smith, who got snubbed. Crawford is very good as a third option, NOT a first, which he was while here.
Zach Randolph is playing on an absolutely stacked team.
With the exception of Conley, all those players are capable of giving you 20 points. And Zach is not the only difference, understand that they have a future superstar in Mayo and bright stars in Gasol and Gay. You're acting like they're the same players they were last year, and because Zach came in they're automatically better. With Zach they don't have to do as much, but understand they are young and will only continue to get better.
You can say the same for Al Harrington. In the 06-07 Season when Golden State shocked Dirk and the Mavs, Harrington averaged 16 and 7 while shooting 45% and 41% from 3. Their team consisted of a high octane offense and he was the fourth option behind Davis, Ellis, and Jackson. People here hate him because he is inconsistent. If Harrington would be our third/fourth option, depending on how much Gallo steps his game up, he would be much more efficient. When you have guys ahead of you, it jacks up your efficiency.
We would have won nothing with Crawford and Randolph as our one and two options. As our three and four, maybe so, but not while they are our only good players.
Also, this thread kinda has been already done. I copied one my posts and added it here...
