That's what you get. You make these guaranteed money deals and what do you get for it? A big screw you from the player. He doesn't have to lift a finger and he'll get his money. Oh, he's willing to accept a million less than his gauranteed money. What a great guy. Maybe you can raise the ticket prices even more to make up some of the losses. If the teams would pay for performance instead of potential there would be alot more hussle out there. Mulbary is an overpaid punk benchwarmer.

Why does every knicks article now have to have the disclaimer,'Newsday is owned by Cablevision, which also owns the Knicks?'

because soooner or later someone would point it out as Newsday continues to positively spin ALL of the moves by KNicks management.

We've all been conned. All the excitement built of the 4-2 start, a new style showing positive results and they blow up the team after 11 games, send top 2 scorers and NBA leading rebounder out. Then the great D'Anton gets on the pre-game and with a straight face says that a playoff spot is still the goal. Then I hear shill Daily News reporters say on their SNY show that Walsh got it right that 'why play for 35-04 wins.

I made the mistake of watching last nights. They were down 24-12 in the 1st and Lee and Malik Rose housting up 3's. Marbury stuck to bench.

Here's a thought who is the last NBA Free Agent that turned down the Max contract from his current team to sign elsewhere and why do they think Lebron will be the first? Also what makes them think that Lebron thinks the The great D'Anton's style can win a NBA championship? At these prices they should have 17,000 no-shows for 2 years. Why bother to buy a ticket to watch players that will be gone in 2010?

are you really upset about the knicks "blowing" the team up? this team wasn't going anywhere this year and Walsh did the right thing by selling high. unloading some of these overpaid chumps was always the plan. it's not just about Lebron, there is a whole laundry list of superstars who will be free agents in 2 years and the knicks will be bound to get at least one of them.

Marbury refusing to play when the Knicks were shorthanded. As usual he puts himself ahead of the team. I would love to see any nitwits try and defend him now.

Im totally with you. People kept saying he was getting mistreated but no one is in the locker room every day and heard what he was saying behind the scenes. I just want him gone. I was a supporter but he could have been the bigger man and played but he chose to be a baby. Good riddance.

Exactly! Why doesn't this article state that Starbury was offered a chance to play, and refused?

Doesn't anyone see that Marbury orchestrated this to get his outright release? He's betting Dolan will have a hissyfit and say "you want out? here's an early holiday gift. HERE. YOU GOT YOUR RELEASE! NOW LEAVE!". Then Marbury signs with San Antonio and he has the last laugh...

The most entertaining thing about this article is reading the posts of you morons who would still like to believe that the NBA is a competitive sports league of honest results, true officiating and competing teams.

Everything from rigging the draft to get Pat Ewing to NY to point shaving by refs to showing bias to "stars" by not calling fouls is fresh in the minds of us all...and yet every Bozo here seems to think that these shows are anything better than the WWF.

With the economy in the shape it's in, you people still spend money on something rigged: pro basketball.

It would be laughable if it weren't pathetic.

Guess what fools? You people who have cable/optimum/newsday all pay for Marburys contract. Oops raise season tickets 60% more next year. Lebron is not going to be a Knick. Why would he play with a bunch of losers like the Knicks.

other than Walsh/great D'Anton saying that he will (and the press and gullable fans accepting) we have no assurances other than blind faith. You know....like Santa, the Easter bunny, and 'I'll respect you in the morning'..

What the hell does Marbury owe D'Antonio or any of his sorry ass team mates?? You people must think that slavery is still in existence. From day one D'Antonio has made it clear that he wanted nothing to do with Marbury. He instead wanted to go with the players that had a future with the Knicks(the SAME players traded). Marbury did what any self respecting man would have done if a phony ass dude ran some bull shyt on them. He used D'Antonio's own words against him and that chump ass coach got his panties all in a twist. Mark my words D'Antonio is not built for New York. If he can't handle this little bit of drama (THAT HE CREATED). I should have known something was wrong with him when he got ran out of Phoenix by Steve Kerr. Are you serious STEVE KERR??? Yeah the Knicks got a real softy for a coach. Hr probably takes it in the ass.

Numbskull,
How did Marbury orchestrate this mess? Did he give himself a DNP on opening day? Did he deactivate himself in the subsequent games? Did he trade Jamal and Zack thereby making the Knicks short handed? Did any of his team mates question the motives of their coach for sitting their best player with out reason or cause? Seems to me that Marbury owes the Knicks NOTHING! It also seems to me that he DID NOT REFUSE TO PLAY. He simply reiterated to D'Aphony that he was told he was not in the plans and they were going in a different direction. If D'AnPhony was a REAL MAN he would have told Marbury that you are under contract and I need you on the floor tonight. That would have been all that needed to be said. If at that point Marbury refused to play D'AnPhony and the Knicks would have a case and you my friend would have finally made a valid observation. Unfortunately for your self, D'anPhony and the Knicks the coach is the one that threw the hissy fit. He is not NY material sorry. He needs to take his ass back to Italy and he needs to take his boy friends son whom he drafted right back with him.

D'Antoni isn't built for NY? And like Marbury is? With all his pouting and drama? Marbury is under contract and paid BY the team for them to employ him as they wish. It's not slavery, it's simple contract law and basic teamsmanship. You know, putting the team first, wow what a concept!

First of all Marbury was born and bred in NY. He acts just like a typical New Yorker so that being said he is very much built for NY. Look at the way he dismisses and shrugs off ignorant Knicks fans like yourself. D'Anphony on the other hand threw a hissy fit when KNICKS FANS FROM NY CALLED FOR HIM TO PUT THIER fellow NEW YORKER in the GAME. Yeah that showed true toughness. Cursing at the fans because they saw through his bull shyt. He gets flustered and his face turns pink every time the mere mention on Marbury’s name. Is that tough? Perhaps tough enough for the folks in Plainview, but I’m from Brooklyn like Steph. And just like Steph I smell a biitch on NY’s sidelines. You root for this clown all you want, but he is as weak and insecure as that Italian bums back. Yeah that same bum that D’AnPhony had Walsh draft.
