Give Jamal Crawford A Break Guys!!!

I know it may seem like Jamal Crawford hasn't been a part of many good Warrior wins this season, and there are a lot of people who think that they play better without him, but consider these factors:

1. Crawford comes in and he is expected to immediately become our starting point guard?!  He has never been a starting point guard on a consistent basis, if ever.  A new offense at the point guard position isn't that easy.

2. He seemed like he was trying to find himself in the offense, and was reluctant on when to take shots.  He was trying to be a facilitator at first, and was doing the right thing by trying to pass the ball more.  He was never able to get into a rhythm offensively when scoring, other than that Charlotte game when he was all they had.

3. Crawford wants to win, but I'm not sure whether he knows exactly how to yet.  He just hasn't been around winners, but I think that can change.  In Chicago, he never was on a great team since it was during the Bulls rebuilding era after MJ's Bulls.  In New York, you can't expect anyone to succeeed in that situation for the past few years.  I mean the Knicks may have been the most dispicable franchise in the past five years. 

4. If you haven't been following Crawford throughout the years, he has had his share of game winning shots.  He is pretty clutch.

5. As far as individual talent, he may be the most talented guy on the floor whenever the Warriors play.  But like I said before, I think he's taking this adjustment one step at a time and not trying to do too much, just trying to be a facilitator.

Give Jamal some time, it takes everyone some time to adjust.  When Stephen Jackson and Al Harrington first arrived, it took them a while.  We didn't win our first few games.  And we couldn't be more depleted health wise than we were.  Stay positive for Jamal.
