Some of you guys are idiots. Marbury did not "quit" on the Knicks last year. Isiah Thomas sent him home and then lied about it. That's why the Knicks never went through with fining him.

They wanted to cut him, but they were afraid he would wind up in Boston.
Most of the good players (Stoudemire, Garnett, Marion,**** Marbury has played with actually liked playing with him.
The media calls him "Selfish Steph" because they don't like players who don't kiss up to them. I never take the media's opinions for my own. Most of the sportswriters in NY and elsewhere are losers with no athletic talent who like to judge other people.
I'm not calling Marbury a winner. I'm saying that he is no more a loser than anyone else on the Knicks. He is still the best player on the team until someone else proves otherwise.
I fail to understand why some of you don't have enough patience to see how things work out under the new regime. Are you, like the sportswriters, afraid that he might do well? Do you hate him so much that you would rather see him in Boston, LA or San Antonio with a shot at the championship than in NY?
Like I said before, if things don't work out there is still plenty of time to cut him.
Forgetting for the moment all the baggage Marbury brings, he is going to be 32 years old in February. He gets hurt a lot, can't play the point and can't play any defense. His one asset is his expiring contract, but the Knicks are better off buying him out and getting him off the cap.

That being said, Marbury should demand payment in full. He signed a contract and there's no reason in the world he shouldn't get what he bargained for.

how about the knicks send him to the nuggets(nuggets fan speaking) where he could help a point guard needy team.the backcourt would be exteremely explosive with him and iverson.

marbaury is so much better then the back up guards the knicks have now. look at his career numbers. why isnt anyone upset with eddy curry the guy is not good at all. the knicks should get rid of jerome james and malik, isiah thomas brought these horrible players here. and who cares if marbairy bought himself a jet. good for him i wish i was rich. the knicks should start marbaury no matter what.

Vince,
I agree with you 98%...
My only disagreement with you would be that it's not patience that these uninformed readers lack. It's common sense. They don't know basketball that is why they take the words of NY's putrid sports writers at face value. I'm not saying Steph is the best PG or even amongst the best, but anyone that knows basketball would know that Steph is not the Knicks problem. Furthermore they have very short memories because it was on Stephs back that the Knicks made the playoffs our last time there. But they were too busy booing Allan Houston to remember that. These same old dolts will be cheering A. Houstons return while booing Steph. Idiots!

If Marbury won't go unless he gets a full buyout then I hope they put him on ice and keep far from the Knicks. Sure don't want to see that loser on the sidelines with a towel over his head for yet another season. Besides, one season without playing will probably end his career. I doubt he has the discipline to stay in shape during the extended layoff. Coach D doesn't need the headache and neither do his teammates. He represents everything bad that has happened to this franchise since Ewing left.
Bob,
Why would a team sit their best player? You are a bandwagon jumper. You are more than likley one of the many idiotic fans that pushed for Ewing to be traded. Some of you people know absolutley nothing about the game.

First, learn to spell before calling someone an idiot. Second, a shoot first
PG who can't or wont play defense isn't any good for this team or any other. Where have the Knicks gone with him? NOWHERE.

Second, Ive been a fan since before their last championship, probably before you were even a thought.

Anyone who wants Marbury back because they believe he is going to act any differently than he has before on this team or any other team is delusional.

We need a play maker at PG, not a stat stuffer.

After all these years of Marbury wrecking teams and teams getting better AFTER he leaves there are incredibly still morons like you who believe he still has something to offer. The only reason to keep him around is as trade bait, nothing else.

He may get off to a fast start, he has before, but he always self destructs in the end and takes the team down with him.

You keep that poster of Marbury on your ceiling shaka, sounds like you need it.

As someone who had a Knicks miniplan and sat in the 400's at MSG, I know good basketball when I see it. Making the playoffs once, with 39 wins, does not make Marbury even an average player. Having watched Doc Rivers and Derek Harper play the point, you come to expect some defense. Marbury has none.

He is not without talent, but he should be a role player on a good team that will sit on him and not put up with his nonsense.

Whoever wrote that the Knicks can trade Marbury in mid season knows little about the salary cap. Since the Knicks need to take back atleast 17M in this years contracts for any deal to work the chances are next to nil. Also since the team has the max # of players going into the season on the roster, rules state the Knicks can't take back multiple contracts that will put them over 15 after a trade is made once the season starts.
THAT IS THE DILEMA.

such a liar, alan hahn! they were no plans to buyout marbury. That was the way Isiah did things, thats why its easy to ASSUME that was going to happen. You proved you have no sources in the knicks organization, that has never been the case. Donnie Walsh admitted that much yesterday, he doesn't do buyouts, so you spent the whole summer assuming something. Then when it doesn't happen, you report its because of Marbury's unwillingness to settle. Why should he settle? and why do you report it like its bad that he wants his money? I knew you couldn't go one day without writing about Marbury. Be different, spend two days talking about another Knick, don't mention Marbury's name at all. From first word to last period. Can you do it? Of course not. Smart people see thru your hidden jealousy/hate for ball players. You're one of those new writers, that have no loyalty, just cover up lies calling them sources. you clown

I wonder how the knicks would do if marbury didn't play, oh, last year the knicks won 8 games without marbury, EIGHT. EIGHT. so they got duhon, to be a good backup, because Crawford and Nate won 8 games, with them running point. Its never been about Marbury. What about the 20 forwards we have on the team, none of them exactly David West and Tyson Chandler right? Who was Marbury gonna make better? James? Jeffries? Quientin? I get so sick of hearing about making another grown man millionaire better, give me a break. David West got better, so Chris Paul looked better! Get a Clue. Easy excuse- oh Marbury is a cancer, and he never wins...Two years before he got here, we stunk, we hired Isiah, and stunk, traded for Curry, Zack, we stunk, why is this Marbury's fault. Why the easy line 'teams play better when he's gone' such a copout excuse for the rest of the bums left on this sorry team. In QRich's tenure here has he had 5 30 point games? No. 4 years, at least 160 games, and not more than 5 30 points games. Crawford kills assists and shoots 42% from the field, Joe Johnson shot 44% from 3pt. Crawful is a bum. So how is it Marbury's fault when the two guard and the 3 are not on par with ANY others in the league. Blame Marbury because he's the one that speaks up, not like the bums who collect the cash and leave. Even your precious David Lee, he's a bum too. Nate? bum. The league has tall talented strong muscular players, the Knicks have people the looklike when Isiah played. lmao. single skill bum guys, no versatility. go with Marbury, and stop reading faux reports and being jealous of ball players. everyday till the season, I'll be here, to straighten you dudes out

Which means they only won 15 games WITH Marbury. He's gotta go.
