Marbs has a big heart and he does/did alot in his community and he gives back to his hometown, he never forgot where he came from(i know, i live in brooklyn) and i've heard and read many articles in the past that back it up.....one was he made 15 dollar sneakers so that the poor kids could afford sneakers to play ball in instead of the 150 dollar Jordans and Lebrons......he's one of the NBA's good guys but his i-dont-take-no-**** attitude and media perception make him look bad
There's always going to be objections, nay sayers, not much you can do about it, there will always be people to find the worst out of things. That's fine though, sometimes you got to just let them eat. I bet a lot of people would criticize this article before and without fully reading it, or have read without fully comprehending.
No one is saying that Marbury is perfect, not all his decisions are the best but he does put forth strong efforts into making the best choice. If someone is going to try and misuse, back stab, bring down his credibility, or knock this man and his optimistic ways out of sync he will not sit by and allow for it to happen, simple as that. I respect and can relate to that.
I see posts, messages in various parts of the net, people I talk to, and a lot of the automatically call this guy a selfish, unprofessional bum based on all the media prop. Blaming him solely for the bronze medal too? there's no end to how much you can leave on this man. He didn't have the greatest chance to win it all in regards to the previous teams he was on.
This article basically gives you a broader insight to the man you do not know about that has a horrid image painted of him. As an individual Marbury is an honorable, and giving person and this translates into his game, decisions off and on court.
You don't see many players dedicating as much time to charity work, giving back. He invests more then a lot of players would combined. It's within his nature to understand misfortune and help others-
I believe it was also marbury who started the crack epidemic in the 80's. Lol
I see the point of view of some of the posters that are opposed to marbury. On one of the many marbury threads I also posted that I was disappointed with marbury "the professional basketball player." but I have total respect for marbury the person. The way he donates his time and money to others is priceless. It influences the youth to do the same when they get older. You have to look beyond the game of basketball. Like he said "...get caught up in life.."
Stephon Marbury is a true KNICK because he is a new yorker the love that he showed to the knicks and all in 2003-2004 can never be matched. The other thing is that when marbs leaves he will shove his skills down the Knicks' throats
Team Starbury FOR LIFE! Great post, Akamu. The haterburys must be FURIOUS now! :lol: :lol:
Stephon Marbury is a 2x All Star with hall of fame averages. He's going to contend for a championship, whether the haterburys like it or not.
Marbury has done things for the community that only a very small percentage of people have done. Marbury can see the light.
It's a fine point, Marbury is for sure a good person. There's no doubt about that, you've seen him take care of his mother, he made an affordable sneaker where others sold their name for hundreds of thousands of dollars, and backed that **** up by playing in them. What Team Starbury fails to understand, however, is that people against Steph playing are against STEPH PLAYING. He may be a good guy off the court, **** Mother Theresa worked miracles, but I wouldn't want her playing quarterback for my football team. Likewise, as strictly an ON THE COURT MOVE, it makes sense, especially because we've seen Chris Duhon fit in very very well. I'm not doubting his character in terms of his community. But, then again, OJ Simpson was one of the most well-liked athletes off the court before everything with him went down.
It's a fine article or whatever, but it doesn't prove that Marbury is the best fit for this team and it doesn't prove that Steph should start. It proves he is known to at times be a good guy. That doesn't mean he didn't refuse to play with KG, that doesn't mean he didn't feud with his last three coaches, all this article means is exactly what it says. Steph does things for the community. But that doesn't make him the right fit from a basketball perspective.

Question though, with the numbers he put up, and he did put up fantastic numbers, why didn't he get into more allstar games?
I don't think anyone here really questioned his community work. We all know the great stuff he's done.
The $15 shoes are always a go too point, I have 3 pairs, they look good, but aren't the best quality shoes.
Really the character issues that always come up are more of...his on the court and around the team dealings and acting. Its about the contract issues, his comments about himself and his teams, etc... Noone can question that he has done a hell of a lot for the community. I give him mad props for that. Great thing to do. But that attitiude problems and such aren't about that . When people talk about his character, they are talking about the only thing they actually care about, and that is his character on and around the court, and how thats going to affect a winning basketball club.
Just like the day of your birth.

Steph has contributed to so many things from Katrina, to his community,and to everyone he's been around, Steph is one of the few humble dudes in the NBA who look out for rookies and help them feel comfortable in the league. Barbosa cried when Marbury left Phoneix; Marbury is liked throughout the NBA, and respected; from guys like Kobe to Pierce.
You just straight up hating because Marbury plugged in your mom's culo and starting stabbing her twat.
Okay Mr. Negative.

No one said Marbury is the savior, with all the negativity that goes around about Marbury, this thread was NEEDED.
btw, NYK and Knicks are the same thing, so you look so pathetic, ignorant and silly trying to come up with things Marbury "screwed up", two really general and random things, you tried to go for 3 and sneak that in there. Good job pendejo.

Marbury was never the problem on that team, he actually played the best perimeter defense out of all the guards.
The USA team got better because they practiced more together and developed chemistry, not because Marbury left.
Mabury's team only practiced for two weeks.
The recent squad spent multiple months practicing together.
Good try though, but metrocard is in the house; I don't accept ignorance.
About Marbury and leading us to a lot of wins.
Marbury ever had the assets to lead this team to 50 wins.
Marbury had to average 22 ppg and 10 assist on a team full of scrubs to even sneak the Knicks in the playoffs.
That was the last time we saw the playoffs.
Isiah didn't built the team around Marbury.
He could of.
and we could of won a lot of more games than having it built around Curry/Crawford.
We wouldn't be a championship team, but we certainly would be a playoff contender and not let the Bulls get all those high lottery picks.
You could be the best player in the world, but if you don't have the assets on your team, then you won't go far.
Look at KG in Minnesota.
He got far with Spree and Cassell.
Him in Boston
H got far with Allen and Pierce.
Without those guys, Garnett was on a lottery team.
Does that make him underachieving?
Or is it the front office and management underachieving?
Simple questions that can be answered correctly with simple logic.
I just wish more Isiahsexuals had logic and common sense, so they wouldn't look so ignorant and hateful.
This has been another metrocard roast.
I hope no one was hurt or murked in the process.
it's cool to know how some of you are so consumed with supporting a player that you'll spend hours to debate but in the end of the day the player doesn't know you even exist and you're really nothing to him in the grand scheme of things lol
Metrocard = Kathleen Decker
Care to defend your hero's actions and conduct off the court? Care to defend his feud with EVERY coach/teammates/management starting with Minnesota? Care to defend him telling his teammates to practice hard and immediately running to get a massage in the locker room? Care to defend him going on national TV all drunk and calling his own wife a hoe and kissing his sister?
Your attempt at pointing blame at everyone other than this clown is pathetic and sad. Thankfully this embarrassment will never get to the Hall of Fame and will never help a team win.
Burn Marbury burn.
Knixy, your a new poster here. I recommend you look back at some old threads.

the only person on par with him is KG ...
this is evident by KG wanting him back in boston....
If you look at the Knicks roster from last year to this year the only players that did anything in the off season to better their physical game were
Lee -- better jumper
Steph -- best shape
WC -- improved game
all the other Knicks are losers and have been losers on all the teams they have been on and will be on....
Marbury and I smoked blunts and he signed a pair of Starburys for me.

Keep asking questions though, because I know you have NO ANSWERS.
Everything that has been said about Stephon has been KILLED, DEBATED to DEATH, and proven wrong to the fullest.
Look threw older threads to educate yourself.
You're not privileged to say my name yet, wait until you reach 500 post.
Then the future doesn't look bright for him then.
