Default Which starter will be benched first?

According to Zeke, the Knicks starting line up should be:
C = Curry
PF = Frye
SF = Jared Jefferies
PG = Stephon Marbury
SG = Steve Francis

Which starter do you think will be benched first (not continue to start) and who will replace him in the starting line up?

Bonus question: How many games will it take for Isiah to bench his first starter?

Francis will be benched in favor of Crawford. 2 games maximum

If steve francis starts, he will get benched after they beat the griz in the opener. Steve got to prove himself. I wish they didn't trade for him. But now that he is here the best spot for him to be Is 6th man to backup both guards. I rather have crawford start at shooting guard.

i agree that they should have never traded for him but lets keep it real when francis is at the top of his game he is the real deal. the lineup should stay the way it is. i think crawford likes his role as the 6th man.

I think crawford likes his role as sixth man also, but he was the most effective last year even though it was a terrible season.

I like Crawford as a starter too; but I think they will showcase Francis until he is traded or until the trade deadline.

If Francis is not playing well after the deadline, if he had not been traded first, he will be benched in favor of Crawford.

Do you think Jared Jefferies will be an offensive liability and get benched as a result?

1. Yes I meant to type "Steve Francis."

2. I would not bet on that.

Curry, Francis and Jeffries need to produce. Marbury and Frye will be consistent.

I suspect that Francis will be traded before the deadline.

If he plays very well with Marbury, the Knicks may not want to trade him because their back court will be dynamic. But as you say, it should be interesting to see what will be offered for him.

Best-case-scenario: It could be an offer the Knicks could not refuse! We hope.

I like Crawford at starting SG too.

However, unless you are Isiah Thomas - YOU do not make the "final" decision.

Zeke does and he said Francis will be the starting SG!
