Marbury was given every chance here. Flip used to draw up the end of game plays to let Marbury, not KG, take the shot. I think Marbury left because he wanted to be the "face of the team", or "the man", and he knew it was never going to happen with KG here. I think KG's selfishness, and ego, probably made Marbury decide to leave as well. It also drove Gugliatta away.

I don't feel sorry for Marbury, alias "Starbury". He had an unimpressive career with virtually no team success. I feel sorry for us, and KG, because had Marbury stayed here, and played the Scottie Pippen role to KG's Jordan role, this team could have won championships. Marbury could have been a Hall of Famer. Now he will just be remembered as just another prima donna.

What does that mean ?? That Wall is a selfish, back-stabbing, cry-baby, who will throw away his career like Marbury did ? I remember when his huge ego said he couldn'd be on the same team as Garnett. He got what he deserved, an unremarkable career.
