I watched on TV. I heard the "Steph" chants. Didn't hear any boos. Maybe those are the ones you carry in your head.

It is ironic and symbolic that Isiah's two prize acquisitions never left the bench (well, OK, Curry never even made it TO the bench in the second half). What did those players cost the Knicks? I think it was at least 4 expiring contracts and 4 first round picks, including 2 or 3 lottery picks. WOW!!!!

Marbury now has the easiest job in the world. All he has to do is keep his mouth shut. He will get a chance somewhere else because of his talent. The benching is his opportunity to show maturity. In other words, do the opposite of Jeremy Shockey.

They won and Marbury an Curry didn't play? Perhaps there's a correlation there.

thats a bunch of B.S. . Marbury is better than Duhon without question. He should easily be starting over Duhon but Mike Antoni is a d.ck

Sorry dude, Marbury has no part of the Knicks future. He will probably get his chance eventually. That was awesome watching those two ride the pine...

Totally agree. Listen, Marbury had PLENTY of chances throughout his career with the Knicks to prove he's worth something and he just kept wasting them. Now it's too late, and I am sooooo glad. Let him sit on the bench for the rest of his career for all I care. His days are numbered here in NY, and it's his own fault. Does he have better talent then Duhon, absolutely, but does he use his talent in a constructive way to make the team around him better, absolutely not.

D'Antoni is absolutely right. This team is about either trying to win now, or building for 2 to 3 seasons down the line. This organization has tried the WIN NOW mentality for years, and the only thing it's done is set us back further and further each year, and turn a once proud franchise into the most pathetic organization in the NBA, and Marbury is a big part of it.
Like D'Antoni said, it's time to start that rebuilding process now, not later.
Finally, maybe this team can back to some kind of respectablity, and go from there.

Unfortunately, it only gets worse!!!! they will finish about 10 games under .500 if they are lucky. As long as Marberry is on the bench, in practice...he will do or say something to bring the team down. But at least they did get rid of Isiah - a huge start.

Ok lets see did any of you watch the game, if you guys noticed, they were doing the "we want steph" chants everytime that Mardy Collins went into the game and everytime he touched the ball, if you guys knew anything the boos were for Mardy Collins for every single mishap and turnover or erratic shot he took, not for Marbury...PAY ATTENTION NEXT TIME PLEASE....

thanks you just documented the danger of the ones that mindlessly quote writers without watching a game.... The KNicks won 23 games year. Marbury played about 23-24 games, but HE is the "cancer" of the team. yes you might say the media has an agenda.... they probably sit back and laugh at us all as we reaeat whatwever they say.

he only played 23-24 games because he abandoned the team and then suddenly had to have surgery roflmao.Which was straight up cowardice and now everyone is supposed to go out of their way for marbury but what has he EVER done for the knicks to say he deserves to be treated any different than james ,Roberson or anyone else .

Thank you for showing us what marbury stans think.
