You're blind. Comparing one of the hardest working players in the NBA to Marbury doesn't really prove anything. What is heart exactly to you?
The third quarter in which they lost the lead and went down by 9 was not about poor defense, poor coaching it was about poor shot selection. People talking about why crawford was in for so many minutes and the knicks not having a 7-8 assist pg, Please shut up. Crawford played good defense in the clipper game, the knicks in general played good defense. Like I said defense wasn't the reason they lost. Crawford didn't shoot before the 4th quarter and if you guys didn't see the game, let me tell you, Crawford ignited the run which had us come all the way back. As far as 7-8 assist a game.. do you guys know what an assist is? The point guard giving the ball to a player in a position to score, prefably an easy score. If you saw the clipper game, you would have seen that Crawford while he was not shooting was doing this, just as Marbury was doing. Curry, Randolph, Richardson mainly were all given the ball where they like it at multiple times during the game, those guys just didn't hit the shots. Is it the point guards fault? what else do you expect them to do? I remember at least 3 times for curry and 5 times for randolph where they were given the ball with excellent position either in the paint(for curry and Zach) or 10 ft or so(for Zach) and they didn't do anything with it except miss the shot. Pleasse don't tell me thats Marbury and Crawfords fault...
I partially agree with you, with the exception of the Clipper game he hasnt played his hardest but i dont think the letting scrubs have career nights part is all his fault. I pointed out to someone else that in the Cavs game Gibson was torching Nate R and Crawford while Marbury was on the bench. He did an average job against Jason williams, he couldve done better and Jameer Nelson is the one guy who really outplayed Marbury. Iverson got hot early and that was the end of that, it didnt matter what kind of defense anyone played.
