As Stephen A said, Marbury is one of the most hardheaded individuals he knows. If he is the Starbury he claims, he should give the Knicks 5mil back and go play for the enemy Celtics. If he doesn't make such a significant offer then he really isn't interested in winning a championship is he? The Celts shouldn't sign him w/o making this type of consession because it shows his head ain't right. BosFanInChgo

no one asked Allan Houston to give money back after he was injured 2 years in to his 10 year contract... Houston's lasting legacy may be something that happened off the court: In 2001, Houston signed a maximum contract extension with the Knicks, a decision that proved to be a huge mistake for New York because it cut deeply into the Knicks' already-grim salary cap situation and prevented them from making any free agent moves. Houston's yearly salary of over $20 million made him virtually untradeable and injury problems would further burden the Knicks. Houston missed 32 games in 2003-04 due to a knee injury, and despite claims in the summer of 2004 that he would be ready to play the next season (he even refused to have surgery on his knee that summer), he played in only 20 games that season because his injury hadn't completely healed. The knee injury would eventually force Houston to announce his retirement, on October 17, 2005."

..but since Houston talks about being religous it was OK!! RIGHT!??
