Marbury played a perfect role as PG in the 06-07 season on both sides of the court. He stepped up as a leader when he needed to be(something he has rarely done in his career). Marbury did not play as an individual this season. Marbury played within the team and made the game easier for a lot of guys. His man to man defense was top 3 in the NBA at his position. He hit alot of big clutch shots also. If he penatrates more, it'll generate more production in our offense. But Marbury, keep doing what your doing. You're an asset to our 2007-2008 playoff run.
-Man to man defense
-More high percentage shots
Crawford suprisely has a better mid range jumpshot than 3pt shot. Its a shame he doesn't utilize it more often. I could really see Crawford be a Rip Hamilton type. Crawford is cat quick, I hope he uses his quickness to move without the basketball more than just run an isolation one on one play. He has the ability to do new things on offense. I'm just hoping he comes with new bag of tricks. His tricks just give us 39% FG shooting and 17 ppg. We don't need that medicore production from the SG position.
Richardson at the begging of the season looked like our best all around player. He played defense, rebound, and was scoring 19 ppg. He just needs to stay healthy. He's only about 26 too, not even in his prime yet.
Improvement on man to man defense
Demand the ball more on offense
David Lee does many things, but the question is can he become a reliable scoring option on offense; or will Isiah ever ALLOW to David to be one? We saw what Isiah did to Channing Frye this season by isolating him out of the offense and letting Curry get all the touches. Hopefully Isiah realizes David Lee's talent and ability to be a scorer. I want David Lee to bulk up, to a Carlos Boozer status and develop some offensive post moves. An a MORE consistant jumpshot. If Lee develops a jumper...we won't need Channing Frye.
Clumsy wreckless turnovers
Utilize his jumper more.
Man to man defense
Curry is the most important player we need to look at, since this team rotates around him. Curry has a jumpshot, I don't know why Isiah doesn't use it more offense. Lets not make Curry the most predictable player in the NBA. He's a dominant post scorer, but running the same plays consistant will make life easier for the opposing defense. He also needs to be more aware offensively. He always forgets his open man and thinks he can take on two defenders. It kills ball movement and a high percentage plays. On defense and rebounding, he's a mess, but luckily we have Lee and Balkman to make up for Curry mistakes.
As for the bench
-Upper body strength
-More range on his jumpshot
-Demand less minutes
