Post Right mind on the starting lineup...

After last season, so much talent, experience, scoring apility...and nothing. When you read around these forums (except knicks forum), there is not so much trust on the knicks "comeback" this season. What should the knicks lineup look like when the season starts? With or without Jeffries (miles).

My favorite lineup could be:

(pg) marbury / (robinson)
(sg) francis / crawford
(sf) j.rose / richardson
(pf) frye / lee
(c) curry / m.rose

With Jeffries (or miles)

(pg) marbury / francis
(sg) j.rose / crawford
(sf) jeffries (miles) / richardson
(pf) frye / lee
(c) curry / m.rose

What do you think?

And it looks like the wizards will not match knicks offer, so my starting lineup would look like the second choise. I still wonder, does Jeffries make the knicks better?

I think he brings more defense to the knicks, what might not be a bad thing.

True, but he also takes minutes away from Lee, and QRich, which is bad.

I think Jeffries is a good pickup for the Knicks, I think he'll give the Knicks that substance they need. They need that hardworking defense/rebound/hustle plays first type of guy. Now they have two in Jeffries and Blackman and maybe three in David Lee. Now Q can go to the 2 which is more suitable for him. My lineup would be as follows


Starting

Marbury
Richardson
Jeffries
Frye
Curry

Bench

Francis
Crawford
Rose/Blackmon
Lee/Rose/Jeffries
James/Frye/Jeffries

With this Roster the Knicks can do a lot of different things the can play small ball, go big and even have a defensive roster in the game with nate/collins, Q, Blackmon, Jeffries and James, may not be able to score but they are defensive

If Isiah and put the team together I think we can make the playoffs.

There is now way on earth that QRich will get the start over Francis, Craw, or even Nate. And also, its Balkman, not Blackman, and I doubt Jeffries gets the start over Lee, but we'll see.

Starters
PG-Stephon Marbury
SG-Steve Francis
SF-Jared Jeffries (who is #20 for those of you who haven't heard)
PF-Channing Frye
C-Eddy Curry

Bench
PG-Nate Robinson
SG-Jamal Crawford
SF-Quentin Richardson
PF-David Lee
C-Jerome James

Rest Of Bench
SF-Renaldo Balkman
PG-Mardy Collins

Injured Reserve
SF-Jalen Rose
PF-Maurice Taylor
PF-Malik Rose

This is a playoff team and we will get there with Isiah Thomas coaching this team. Letting the players play how they play and not changing them.

I think Q will start over Crawford and Francis, he's a better on the ball defender than both Crawford and Francis, he's a smarter ball player and if he gets that outside shot to drop he's just what Marbury needs. Remember Marbury and Houston or Marbury and Van Horn, drive and kick all day. I believe its a more stable backcourt. Now if Crawford would bulk up a little and continue to improve defensively and continuously knock down the open shot then start him but he's too erratic. I think Q will rebound this year. I dont think Marbury and Francis should start together, it could be deadly if one was able to let the other take the lead, but I dont think they will, which means we'd have to much of the same player on either side of the court. Also Francis cant defend. I say let his ass go and let Robinson play.

Not really because Richardson should be gone by the time the season starts. Rose is used to playing SG, another concept he'll have to adjust to besides the fact that he has a new coach again...
