marlbury should be asked by the knicks to sit with them on the sidelines during the games. he should be given towels to hand in to the team during timeouts. make him a waterboy ... get their moneys worth by this kind of embarassment. rather then let do what he is doing right now.

Ho fro Hicksville, you have no idea what you're talking about. No team will trade for him because he makes 20 mil a year. A team would have to trade somebody with an equal salary and nobody wants to trade their superstar. As soon as he is released he will be signed. He is still one of the best PG;s in teh NBA.

This is SO simple, and I can't believe how superfluously complex it got. First of all, you have to be REALLY REALLY evil to make MARBURY a victim; good job there the petty sanctimonious Knicks and D'antoni. I mean it is really simple; Marbury is literally, inarguably, most certainly, definitely, without a doubt, legally is owed his money. That cannot be argued. After treating him like no other NBA player has been treated before in the past(I am not saying if he deserved the harsh treatment or not), how can the Knicks organization expect not to pay him what he deserves. Think about it; THE KNICKS don't want him; Marbury was willing to play since the beginning of Pre-season. So if the Knicks don't want him, then buy him out. How and why could it even be acceptable in people's eyes for Marbury to take LESS when it is the TEAM that doesn't want him! Thats why I firmly say that if you are against MArbury in this situation, there is absolutely no way you are thinking objectively.

Of course, it's a negative article about a black athlete from a white author so it must be racist. The racist here is you for your post. It may be hard to believe, the way things are in 2008, but a black person can be criticized by a white person for no other reason than it's justified. It's time you learn what racism is, fool.

He was in L.A. to wait for his new Starbury line to be unloaded from the docks. Why shouldn't he go to the game? Why shouldn't he promote his new gear which will be sold on Amazon.com ? Dolan should stop embarrassing himself (as he did with Anucha and Larry Brown) and is now doing with Marbury. Pay the guy, Dolan, and you (Dolan) should move on.

Wow! Again. this is clear and cut Blackmailing on part of the Knicks. They are telling Marbury: Give us your money or we won't let you play in the NBA. It is this simple, and it is very wrong. as aforementioned, if you are against Marbury in this situation, you are NOT objectively thinking. Period.

This organization will not be able to go in the direction it wants to head in until this FIASCO ends once and for all. I mean the soaps never end w/ this team. It's not as though it's worth enduring one after another because we're not competitive. The Bronx Zoo Yankees were well worth the soaps because they won. The Dolan Knicks aren't because we lose, and we lose alot. Year after Year after Year.

I cannot believe that the knicks made this guy from a thug to somewhat sympathetic. you owe him the money, if he was holding out and wouldnt play, I would say dock his pay. Buut he is available- just get rid of it now

What's the player's union stance on this? I'm sure they're still receiving their deduction.
