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!

Marbury refuses minutes because of hurt feelings??

Stephon Marbury

Disgruntled Knicks Point Guard, Stephon Marbury

I have been reading a lot about the new Marbury fiasco and I have grown tired of it. I love Starbury more than any other fan. I have followed his entire career and I have looked up to him for as long as I can remember. I remember when he was still in High School, playing out of Coney Island and developing his game on pavement courts city wide. This kid had so much potential, but I am starting to believe his attitude has finally gotten the best of him. Marbury’s story should be a lesson to all, that abilitiy must be accompanied with the proper attitude in order to be successful. Marbury had a great opportunity to play with a much

improved Knicks team, and he dismissed it. Without a doubt the organization had not treated Marbury correctly but this was a chance for Marbury to prove his worth, so at the very least at the end of this season, other teams could have bid top dollar to sign him. Has anyone ever heard of a player who refuses to play in his contract year? I am starting to wonder if he can still play to the level that we were accustomed to seeing. Mike D’Antoni without a doubt is bringing the team in a new direction, considering they are over .500, and they are the top scoring team in the NBA. They were planning a move from the beginning (I am sure of it). It could be possible that they were saving Marbury in case of this event, because at his┬áripe age, you never can be certain that he does not get bit by the injury bug.

Jamal Crawford rises up out of New York

Jamal Crawford rises up out of New York

Jamal Crawford was sent to Golden State today in a trade deal that will bring disgruntled Foward Al Harrington to New York. Mike D’Antoni has had his eyes on this player for a long time, ever since Harrington had gone public with his distaste for his basketball situation in golden state. Now, the big question is who is going to be the big shooter for the knicks? Is it possible that Mike D’Antoni will now look back to Steph, to come replace crawford? Is it possible that he has played everyone for a sap, resting Steph keeping him fresh, for when he would move Jamal! Could it be that he increased Jamal’s value ?

Knicks new Foward AL Harrington

One thing is for certian, Donnie Walsh is making changes. The next trade on the table is Zach Randolph, who has been supposively place with Mardy Collins in a deal for Tim Thomas & Cuttino Mobley of the Golden State Warriors. I don’t see the point of this trade, though. Hopefully Walsh will get more back than just Thomas and Mobley cause personally I don’t see the value in that trade.

Marbury Does What He must, BIG DEAL!

Stephon Marbury

I am sick and tired of hearing about how steph has changed. Last year he walked out on the New York Knicks right before a road series match up. Seriously, the guy is crazy. I hope everyone realizes that since the knicks did not trade or release Starbury from his contract, he must play nice or else he will risk his future NBA career, due to the fact this is the final year of his contract. Marbury is without a doubt the most

Where's Marbury

Where is Step?

talented guard on the New York Knicks. I mean seriously, who else is there. Jamal Crawford? AKA Captain Clutch AKA 34 % from the Field. Nope, who else? I’ve been hearing a lot of hype on 37 year old Allan Houston. I am sure he won’t make any difference on the court for the New York Knicks considering he is trying to comeback at the age of 37, on two micro-fracture surgery repaired knees. I am sorry but the odds of him being effective are just not that high. Either way he does help this team. He may help fix the losing attitude they have had in the locker room over the past couple of years. He also becomes a much needed veteran leader. I do like them signing Houston but I do not think he will be a impact on the floor this year.

Allan is so old, that some of his best performances were agianst MJ

I confess I am a loyal Knicks fan, but honestly what is up with them signing all the backups on the Chicago Bulls? I mean seriously the Knicks are starting to look like the Bulls B side team or something. They need to shop around a little bit more when before just making moves for back up players and seriously mugged by the bulls in trades.

I love my Knicks but this season they really need to show me something…
