Steph stinks up 1st start this season
March 9, 2009 by MarkM
On Sunday March 8, Stephon Marbury made his debut start for the Boston Celtics, replacing the injured starter PG Rajon Rondo against Orlando. Some people are going to claim that Steph is just rusty, but I really think this is the beginning of the end for Starbury. After refusing to play for more than half a season, Marbury is no longer mentally in the game. It was pathetic experience watching the once omnipresent Point Guard struggle to try to find his once omnipotent court vision once again. Thanks Clyde! Marbury started for the Celtics and ended the game with NO ASSISTS and 4 points in 20+ minutes on the court. He was replaced by Eddie House for the majority of the game, and to be honest I think Steph has really destroyed his career because now he is not the same player he once was. At this point, Rondo is the more talented PG and Marbury has no business playing with this team, Eddy House is a better PG than him, heck bring back Sam I Am (Sam Cassell) but please don’t play Marbury. At this point I can only hope is that Steph does not destroy this squad since they are fun to watch. I don’t find it shocking that Assists, are down for the Celtics. You have to admit though, thats it is kind of funny that Boston has once again inherited a New York curse!
