I wouldn't call D'Antoni a cowaard, but i do understanding that if you're going to take two people that have been starters pretty much their whole lives, COMPLETELY out of the rotation, just tell them first. Why make it surprise in front of 20 thousand people? Curry was shocked when he heard from the media he's out of the rotation, and Steph had no idea he was getting a DNP-CD last night.
With that said, i barely care about that. This should have seemed obviously to both of these guys. If you recall, last year the Knicks won their first home game against Denver, and we had high hopes. I'm going to wait before having those same hopes, but this time was much more encouraging because of the way they moved the ball around and their hustle. It wasn't just JC going 1 on 5 the whole game.

Here a lot of readers who post their feelings about Ken Berger and his undeniable Bias.
He hates MArbury and is a unbelievabley a HUGE Marbury hater. Come to this article once and then leave... Dont give his articles the hits that he depends on UNTIL Ken fixes himself up in regard to this issue.
Also... do not trust any of his nameless/undisclosed sources until he redeems himself and improves his professionalism.
BTW... Ours comments REALLY effects him and he really does read them. Do type your comment being assured that he will read it.
You lose me with
1- you still think Marbury is a winner
2- your grasp of grammer

D'Antoni is an Idot Marbury is a good player. If I was Marbury I wouldnt care its like hitting the lotto make 21.4 million for sitting on the bench.

ronron,
Like the rest of the Newark Wasteland, you idolize thugs, drugs, and prima donnas. You supply the first two. For the third, you get Stephon Marbury and his worthless, pistol-packing blood, Bassy Telfair.
Give 'em all the money you want. Write all the books about 'em in high school you desire. Buy as much Starbury as you can charge - or steal.
Doesn't change a damn thing.
Marbury's been a loser since his year as a Yellow Jacket and burned bridges in four different NBA cities. Four, if you can count that high, chump. Take off your shoes and socks to handle the higher math. I'll wait.
(Three hours later.)
OK, now put your shoes and socks back on. Mama don't want you to get no cold. We be talking in PHONE-etics from here (sic).
Bassy's resume features only arrests, plea deals, and bong toting. He's buried on the bench in his second NBA city. He belongs not even in the D-League or Europe, but dealing product on a street corner in Camden. Another Marbury. Another bum.
So take another hit. Sell a few more dime bags. And just chill. That be da only way you can make it in the Fantasyland of Marbury Family Basketball.
you really need to take a napp, you have some issues that have nothing to do with basketball

Dantoni is a coward for what he did last night. That was disgraceful and you can read it easily. This was a revenge tactic by Knicks management for Marbury saying he wouldn't accept a buyout. So they figure they'll humiliate him by not playing him. Coward D'Antoni couldn't even look into the cameras like a man and address it last night. What respect I did have for that man, I lost it last night.
It's all good though Steph! Stick to your guns and hurt em in their pocket! Make em pay you the full $21.9 mil and then go play for a real team next year. The win last night was fools gold. They beat a team that was worse than us last year with a rookie coach and a roster full of rookies and STILL ALMOST LOST!!!!! LOL
amazing the fact you can read & write with all the nonesense you have going on upstairs.

Today's world in a nutshell contained in these posts. Marbury has done NOTHING to earn respect or loyalty or a notification of a DNP coming. NOTHING. He's a me-first, selfish, self-aggrandizing modern day player. He would rather avg. 20 pts and 10 assts for a 20 win team than 10 & 5 for a playoff team. Just the way of the world unfortunately. People defending him on this site, absolutely unbelievable...
Steph, if you really want to show your wares, take the buyout, go elsewhere and stick it to the Knicks. That's what a proud person would do. Look at KG and how he carries himself and how he completely makes Steph look like a fool, without even trying.

Thanks for the correction, but new coach and gm said they would evaulate on there performance from what they see and not what they have heard, coach D, has said steph has done everything asked of him, so you tell me, stop hating the players and hate the game, one question to all you steph haters( CAN YOU REALLY SAY DUHON,CRAWFORD,Q IS BETTER THAN STEPH)I'm speaking about talent, you must admitt the knicks had no direction last year or not much the year before, is it just because of zeke, that steph has to now be the point man for all the knicks problems, new year, new team, they really did not say he did not fit, it was reported by the haters that was said. trust me people I'm not a steph freak or anything, I'm just want the best team we have on the floor and not let petty hatred to spoil what might be a good season.
I agree w/ you that Steph is the better talent, I think most people would. But thats where it ends and you are really not getting what coach & gm are trying to do here. And that is, put together a team full of WINNERS. Steph has already proven he is not one even with all that talent, which is sad. This year you need to look for IMPROVEMENT until they get rid of all the dead weight.

just remember steph hasn't said anything or done anything(just us want ta be's) so to me he is doing just what ever the team has asked. but our hate( not knowledge of the game) for a person is what is keeping this topic going

great reply, sticking to basketball, besides old man rose(great guy) whom else on the knicks are winners, when zack came they said and he showed he wasn't a team player, but he has been able so far to change his game to fit what the coaches want, why do we feel steph can not do the same, coach has said he is doing what is asked, so why do we not understand that.and keep harping on things that had to do with so much more than the game of basketball

True, and I guess possible. He just appears to be such a strange guy, with no real grasp on reality. I've "heard" that he is hated by teammates, but who the heck knows.... We all know he is better than Mardy Collins!

Well,thats the thing, we don't know who on this team is a winner, it remains to be seen. I think Dave Lee looks like one. What we do know is that Steph has been on this team & 3 others where he always gets the same rap. Last years situation w/ Thomas probably wasn't fair but so be it, he was still a distraction and a cry baby. I'll give Zach the benefit of the doubt that I used to give Steph but I think it's over dude. Time to bury it w/ a shovel--then bury the shovel.

<quoted text>whose the ahole here? calm down this is just sports.. unless Marbury stole from you or banged your sister (or brother), why the hate?
since you base your opinions on what the media tells you from unamed sources in KNick mangement....
anybody with a clue knows that Crawford's, a career 30% shooter, night was an aberation. That he will have nights when he goes 0-10 to start a game. He was the cause of many 10-15 point 1st quarter deficits last year. the only difference last night was that while he still hits 9-19 the team took more shots. Its one game. And everbody's says that 'messages' were sent by not playing Marbury...
he will be needed to win a game or two this year... I just hope the KNick coach is not influenced by the NY media that is full of itself after a succesful 'Fire Isiah' campaign..
of course if Marbury comes out next week with 'I'm a starter' his butt should be gone..
I still don't see how Mailk ROse was kept over Ewing. If they are 2 years away from contending why keep the 34 year old?
I'm calm - I just think Marbury is an ahole. He brags about doing an intern in his limo - he is a married father - real nice for his wife and kid(s). He has always caused problems for every team he has been on.

Are you his lawyer? Then why do you care if I think he is an ahole. I'm sure you think some ppl out there are but I don't care.

I feel for D'antoni, he inherited Marbaury and his fat contract. Thanks Isaih! If they are not going to play him thay should release him and pay him off. Get a young player that can help a team with a good attitude and might have some potential. Marbury is a cancer and always has been

I'm not Marbury's lawyer just amazed at the mindless lemmings jumping off the cliff quoting even more clueless writers with an agenda and a by-line. ONe day you will learn not to trust and repeat all that you hear or read. Like they say opinions are like aholes everybodies got one or they are full of **it
