Default Marbury & Francis

Well Marbury was finally playing like an All-star in the offense, playing some pretty decent defense, and then he tries to shoot a three almost from mid-court when the game was at stake... was that Starbury appearing again and trying to grab some headlines, or was just Marbury having one of the best games of his carrer and honestly thinking he could make that shot... i'm sitting on the fence...

Well Francis wasn't scoring prior to his injury, but he was making like 5 assists in 7 minutes of playing time... and now he been somehow decent... and then look at him tripping around looking for the three line, when he could have taken a easy jumper or just attack the lane and get a foul... was he trying to grab the headlines, or as he said he felt it was his fault the Toronto loss and wanted to makeup...

Where those to honest mistakes by them, or their egos are always going to hurt the Knicks? The sad part it's that, like it or not, they still are the two best players on the team right now...

I think you make a good point.

If you look at their stats it doesn't tell the whole story.

The story is that both are inconsistent. They don't play team basketball, they make poor decisions. They don't play defense and they don't make the players next to them better.

What kind of point guards are they, the answer is they're not.

They're a hybrid like AI. They never win anything and never will.

Teams that win have people that play team basketball and Francis and to a somewhat lesser degree Marbury are too selfish and actually stupid.

I don't think they are smart people. They are selfish and stubborn, maybe even ignorant.

Francis is an interview said he was going to be made the scapegoat again for the poor winning record of the Knicks jut like the other teams he was on........DUH.

What a moron, it is your fault you idiot.

That's part of the problem right there, what a terrible attitude, Van Gundy got rid of him in an instant for a reason.

Marbury is playin better but hes not the most important knick.
Lee and Q are the most important knicks for us on both ends of the floor.

They are both hurt so we will be ending our season early once again.

Q is the best defender onthe perimeter and best 3 point shooter.
Lee is obviously our best rebounder and big man in general on both sides.

We should release Francis..hes harder to watch then Crawford and i didnt think that was possible.

Trade Crawford,Nate,Jared Jeffries, and MAYBE Frye(check if u can keep him out da deal). For Ray Allen or Paul Pierce.

They both are on re building teams and that package has a share of young players that have upside...jus need the right system.

With this we could get 60 million dollars off the cap in 2 years. From Marbury , Francis, and Allen/Pierce. At that time we will have good young players and sign a good free agent.

Oh yeh Jalen, Mo Taylor, Malik Rose. ALL THESE CONTRACTS WILL BE FREE FOR NEXT YEAR.

All this money will put us under the cap as well.

We just have to draft quality guys who are junior or senior players who have high basketball IQ's like Lee, Q, Mardy, and Frye.

Eddy
Frye
Lee
Pierce/Allen
Marbury

Bench
Q(he should start but his back can't hold up, hence we dont have him now.)
Balkman
Mardy
Draft a Defensive 4/5.

Francis obviously wants to be a rocket, just let him be.

Francis makes way better decisions than Crawford ANY day. Any. Since Crawford left he really hasn't been missed. We haven't been beaten badly by any teams either. Francis is doing more than fine in my book.

why would teams want crawford, nate, jeffries
dont you think teams have scouts and can see that these guys are'nt that great or have potential
I dont believe Marbury or Francis will ever get "IT" when it comes to bball...

It's funny how people regurgitat garbage they hear to make points on this. Bottom line is, whether you hate or love Steph, there isn't much valid criticism you can throw his way. The last two months he's been playing like a top 5 pg in the league. I also laugh at how a guy who's avergae 8+ assists throughout his career constantly gets labeled as selfish. I'm also amused at people that swear Marbury won't ever "know how to play basketball" yet with the same mentally retarded brain think there is potential in a 5'8" player with absolutely no point guard skills (Nate Robinson)
