That's an insult to fans. They know exactly why they're booing, except for those just doing it because everyone else is. Marbury has too much pride to admit his mistakes, but if he could just play defense and be aggressive like that there won't be boos.

Marbury and the Knicks suck. The only reason they won last night is cause 55% of things went right for them in last 7 minutes. Up 7, marbury threw away, Randolph stripped, and Crawford another awful selfish shot. Luckily Utah then also threw it away twice for fast breaks. There was no solid offense or defense from these Knicks. They suck

Well mr Hahn i am glad to see that you are speaking a little more positive about the Knicks. Eastern conference, be very afraid. Its going to be a brawl on Thursday vs. the Celtics.

yesterdays win over the Jazz was a good start and will boost the confident up of the team, but i think we still have more to prove and thats on thursday night against the Celtics. 1, 2 wins in a row will mean nothing when you lose 8 straight, for all of you who wrote b4 me and hate the knicks and what Marbury said after the game try imagining if you were asked constantly about what your doing everywhere you go, harrassed and booed by your own home crowd and also picked apart by the guys on espn i'm pretty sure your not gonna let those guys get to your head and thats what Marbury is doing. And i love how espn likes to pick apart at him when he has one awful game but look at espn today marbury did good and they barely say anything about the knicks or their win

That was not a good showing by Marbury in yesterday's win. He is the POINT GUARD and he only had 6 assists - that has been the problem with this team since he showed up.

"When asked if his improved play, most notably on defense, was a result of his tete a tete with Thomas, Marbury bristled."

Uh, Deron Williams had 26-8-5, so what defense did Marbury play? Remember Jameer Nelson obliterating Marbury, the game that led to his benching? It may not really be Marbury's fault since he has lots of wear and tear and is expected to carry a huge offensive burden, but he is a terrible defender. The Knicks, overall, are still as bad a defensive club as there is in the league. When they hit their shots and get in a flow, they can keep up with most teams, but that doesn't happen too often. When the offense slips even a little, the other team inevitably pulls away.

Nothing like Good ole' Stephon further engratiating himself with the NY fans who have turned jeere to cheers for him by so genuinely and considerately; after all of his antics on and off the court to return thenfavor by saying " I DON'T EVEN THINK THEY KNOW WHY THEY'RE BOOING." At $20 mil. a year Steph; we knew we weren't getting a rocket scientist. We knew we were getting someone that brings enough baggage that santa's sleigh might have trouble hauling it; but we figured WINS would cure all ills even in the putrid sport of professional basketball. But, even spoiled rotten narcissistic fans like ourselves; who have been breaking God's laws on waste by continuing to pay top dollar for your Knick product know why we're booing: WE'RE NOT ONLY BOOING YOU BUT IN SENSE WE'RE ALSO BOOING OURSELVES FOR ALLOWING YOU, ISIAH, STEVE MILLS AND THE REST OF THE VERY WEALTHY KNICK ORGANIZATION RIP US OFF AND TEAR DOWN A ONCE VERY PROUD FRANCHISE......GOING ON YEARS NOW!!!

The last two games were probably examples of how lousy teams somehow win 25-35 games. They caught the Bulls playing horrendous ball and without their best player at home. They next got the Jazz at home who played the day before in Detroit while the Knicks had a day off. This team is incapable of playing effective defense, but can outscore some teams that either have no offense like Chicago or have no legs like Utah.

A win is a win. You know, i understand sometimes when people make excuses for losing. But are you seriously giving excuses for the Knicks winning! Wow, i guess you thought long and hard about how you can post a comment like that. Anyway, in the NBA you have to show up every night...yes.. EVERY NIGHT. The NBA is also about strategy and match ups, and the Knicks matched up well with Utah and prevailed. Do us Knicks fans a favor and go and watch a Miami or Bobcat's game, dont watch the Knicks if you are just going to hate

Hey Mike from Ct. I can't wait to see what you look like when you chair the next televised presidential debate! Or are you just another Knick's cousin hired at MSG working with the interns?
One post you seemed happy with defended Stephon due to invasion of privacy, booed by home fans, ESPN getting on him after ONE bad game, etc.
Stephon Marbury is his own worst enemy and has been since he was a young kid and man growing up in Brooklyn. The things he does and says either work for him [sneaker line, and charitable contributions, etc.] OR against him.
He's said and done some ridiculous things over the years and that's what people/basketball [not just Knick fans] look at, and pay money to see, hear, read, whatever.
I hope you can at least see that about him. If not, well good luck with whatever you're moderating for.
