This is a college roster that is ready to compete in the Big East. The Knicks doesnt have any players worth watching and will end up in last place this year. Every player that leaves this organization ends up on a playoff team....

1)Signing "NO"-D'Antoni.
2)Wasting this years draft pick by selecting the next Fredrick Weiss in the draft. That Italian what's his name scrub already is showing he has no backbone, literally!!! He was only picked because his father played ball with D'Antoni in Italy.
3)Not dumping Zack Randolph when they had the chance.
4)Not waiving "MAR"bury.
5)Resigning Allan Houston.

It goes on and on and on. Ugh!!!!

I wouldn't quite consider this a news article. It's more like a very opinionated editorial. I you get paid to HATE Stephon Marbury? The entire article was you expressing your dislike for Stephon Marbury to us. Find a friend or maybe a colleague to vent to. I, and I'm sure everyone else who ran into this article, do not want to get to know you. Write about what's going on with the Knicks and a little bit about your conclusions, assumptions, and predictions. NOT AN ENTIRE ARTICLE
Hating on somebody that hard is unhealthy.

I am only wondering whatever happens to objectivity. What has Marbury done to you?
I am not writing to defend Marbury. I am glad that Mr. Walsh is not as impulsive as you almighty media folks.

Marbury's presence on the team at this point should tell us everything we feared from the beginning. Do nothing Donnie Walsh does NOT have complete authority over the basketball operation. Isaih is still on the Garden payroll, and Marbury's presence are loud reminders that Jim Dolan is still calling the shots. Marbury and Randolph (at least) should have been dumped long ago. Nothing has changed-nor will it ever-until Dolan is gone. There remains no reason to pay attention to this joke franchise, and Walsh himself was lucky to find his retirement nest egg from the biggest idiot around, when objective observers would have seen Walsh's utter lack of accomplishment over the years as an NBA executive.

Are willing to give up part of your pay because maybe your new boss does not want you? Maybe the Post should have bought Newsday. Why is marbury selfish? He signed a contract,the knicks signed the contract too. He is owed money, is he overpaid? Who in the NBA is not.
Don't stoop to Alan Hahn's level show some objectivity and tell us something newsworthy.

Ok, let me get this straight. He is selfish because he wants the money he signed a contract for?? This article was pretty gay. One man shouldn't hate another man who hasn't done anything to him this much. You sound pretty rediculous, and I'm not even a Marbury fan.

Let him spend 82 games at the end of the bench with a towel draped over his head!

What a pariah Marbury is! He's like some kind of hybrid of Carl Pavano, Ocho Cinco and Vince Young.
I sometimes wear the "New York 3" Knicks jersey and I notice that I get bad looks, looks that go away when they see the back of the shirt and it reads "Starks".

Marbury is right not to negotiate. They owe him that money. Don't want him? Release him.

The Knicks have total control over this situation. They can pay him off and be done with him. If they decide to keep him, they get all the [email protected] that goes with him.

Why should Marbury renegotiate? Yes, he is a selfish, no good, me first, second and third loser, but he has a contract and has every right to demand it be honored.

Thats not the full quote Marbury made, and furthermore, WRITERS WHO DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT BASKETBALL SHOULD NEVER ALLOW THEIR PERSONAL FEELINGS TO CLOUD THEIR JUDGEMENT. Who cares if Marbury's appearance sours you? YOU? You don't matter, guy! Your article always just get more people against marbury, he still light years better than ANY KNICK ON THE ROSTER, he should dominate the interview, who would you want to talk to? Hi Crawful, you scored 20+ for a team that won 25 games, are you good? Hi QRich, you've NEVER played up to your contract, are you good? No one wants to blame the knicks misfortunes on anybody but Marbury. YOU DONT KNOW WHAT A GOOD BALL PLAYER IS. YOU DONT HAVE A CLUE. Its sad how far off you steer all these so called knick fans, cant wait for another 20 win season, if Marbury isn't on this team. Let the Loser Writing reporting begin.

I wonder if Ken Berger, Alan Hahn and Frank Isola sit around, drink, and cry on each shoulders about how much they hate Marbury and why he won't go away.

These losers plant false stories citing unnamed "players", "sources within the organization" and other garbage to try and force Donnie Walsh into doing something stupid. Then they insult Walsh when he wwon't go along.

There is no evidence that Mike D'Antoni doesn't like Marbury, yet these guys keep saying it.

The real problem is that Marbury only talks to Marc Berman, and these guys are jealous.

I am so sick and tired of this garbage. We need objective writers who can do their jobs without malice and hatred.

If the guy is such a headache pay him his 21-22 milli and begone with him. Pay him to leave. Starphon wants all his money. He got in shape the way Walsh asked. They don't want him around. But they don't want to live up to the contract. So who's disingenuous.

I singed a contract. I want my cash, honky mofo. What is so difficult to understand about that?

Do you still live at home in your parents' basement? Once you get out and learn about contracts and how to make your own bed, etc, you may be able to chime in on such career and businesss decisions.

The Knicks should use the Anaheim Angels as an example. In 2002 the year they won the World Series, they told Jose Guilllen(a talented right fielder, but cancerous influence) to simply go away with two weeks left in the regular season. The Knicks have a chance to do this before their season can be poisoned by his presence. He represents everything I hate abouth the modern day athlete and I just want him to go rot some other part of the planet. If he can still play, I'd rather have a gentleman like Allan Houston fill a roster spot than the punk Marbury.

If I'm not mistaken, didn't Larry Brown refuse to go away from the Knicks without receiving all the money owed him? How is the Stephon Marbury situation any different? Of course coaches can't be traded as players can, but the similarity is that Marbury and Brown each refused to be bought out. Since Brown coached like Marbury played where was the outrage against Brown? Got to call you on this one, Berger. You're a shill for management when a player is involved and not when it's a coach.

Worst article i ever read, u mad because marburys not getting cut. Fact is hes still the best player on this crappy team. Crawford, curry, and zach randolph all suck.

Im laughing at all you idiot knicks fans who are upset that marburys still on the team, yall gonna be looking stupid when he carries us to the playoffs.
