Bill Walton, Maravich, Dennis Scott, Paul Silas... lots of history for Celts to revive old stars as valuable cogs.

From Doctor Berman...Marbury said Boston has not made an offer. A source close to the situation said the Celtics wouldn't be Marbury's No. 1 choice either because of the limited role, backing up emerging point guard Rajon Rondo.

In other words, I am a starter, period!

I was speaking of guys past their prime who the Celts acquired and revived at the end of their careers. The guys you refer to were career long Celts.

Anyone who says Marbury is a cancer has only followed his career through what the media has reported about him. I will say he's no KG in that he hasn't sacrificed his game for a championship in the past but if the celtics were able to get him this season, marbury would want to show the league that he is a great player still, and can fit in with a team so the celtics would benefit and get a team first marbury. Plus the guy can still play, did you see him in the pre-season? Pretty good. Plus i always find it interesting that when a player is a score first guy on a bad team he's called selfish (example: Marbury, Paul Pierce in the past) But when a score first guy is on a good team he's called a great player(example: kobe Bryant, Paul Pierce now)

Allot of teams sign players past their prime for a year or two..as to help their teams win a championship..as was the case for Bill Walton in 1986...

I don't complain about NBA or NFL players getting paid. It's not about the big contracts, its about the competitiveness of each sport. In the NBA, a team in a small market has a much better chance of succeeding than in baseball. Football is almost ridiculous with parity - any team can dramatically improve in one season - like the 2008-09 Dolphins.

Nice--you used my previous exmaple of end-of-the-trail guys the Celts signed. They were historically the best at choosing a guy who was the best player on his team during his prime and making him into a limited minutes star sub. Marbury is clearly not ready to accept that kind of role.

NFL contracts are the best right now..only the signing bonus is guaranteed...besides who wants to wait 10 years to make it to the superbowl?..money has taken over loyalty..love to see players only get half their salaries in all sports for when on DL..or IR..it sucks..but that's how it is..better understand that if your going to continue following sports....
