    Default Need to trade Stephen Marbury...

    Stephen Marbury has been so inept these Olympics that I'm beginning to entertain the thought of trading him. He looks clueless out there. He looked out matched in the Nets playoff series. He can't hit a outside shot. He's still one of the tops in the league but I think Isiah may need to consider trading him away to improve this team size and cap-wise.

    I propose trading him for Clippers 6'7" point guard Shaun Livingston.

    give him a break man... international game is ways different from the NBA, i admit he is struggling making outside shots but at least now he can work on it.. give him a full season with healthy players AND THEN let's see if he can be NY's saviour..

    Damn!
    The stupidest thing I've ever heard! Trade Stephon?! No way! We need him, he's our saviour! If there's a man on our team we must never trade then it's Stephon. Just recall the last season ending when Steph joined us and we started winning games. Plus he brings crowd to the MSG.

    I agree that Starbury has been shooting really bad in the Olympics, but you can expect between 15 and 20+ points in the regular season from him. Plus his passing been really good in the olympics and maybe this experience will teach him how to run the team better. In the olympics the refs are not calling the contact in the paint, so if Marbury drives which is his strength, he will get hammered and not go to the line where in the NBA he would.

    We have to hold on to Steph...the reason he looked so bad in the playoffs was because Houston was out and we had no shooting...
    think how good he looked (and the Knicks played) when he had Houston and KVH on the wings...if Houston is healthy the D can't cheat off of him and it will open up so much more for Steph...plus, who would you rather have running the point?
    This being said...are there any free agent "shooters" left. I think that is a big weakness for this team (after Houston of course).

    Steph is a great player but he's no superstar yet. I'm tired of the "Intrnational game is different" excuse! Steph passes up so many wide open 15 foot shots it's hard to watch. Larry brown can't stop Steph from shooting wide open shots, if Brown complains so what! Play someone else then Mr. Brown!!!

    Nobody wants the Knicks to win a Championship more than me guys! I've been suffering out here in So California for over thirty years since the last Knick championship! I have dozens of friends who are die hard Laker fans and I hang out at local sports bars with thousands of Laker fans! I hate the Lakers with a passion & I go to battle out here every week in support of our Knicks. I think Isiah is the man to finally turn things around but I think the Knicks need a few changes to get back to the championship. You all love Kurt Thomas but I know he is not a legitimate starting power forward, he's a good backup and that's all, he's also boring to watch! Find a fool GM to take him in and the Knicks will begin to soar again!!! Trust me!
    Here is my idea of a Superstar J.J.! Here's some of my favorite legitimate NBA Superstars, former & present. Bird, Jordan, Magic, Bernard King, Shaq, Kobe, Olajuwon, Bill Russell, Walton, Havlicek, Isiah, W. Frazier, Reed, Monroe, Debusschere, Dr. J, Wilt, K. Mchale, Barkley, Pete Maravich, & Kareem. Good night now!

    Kurt does the dirty work for us. He does things that don't show up in stats. He sets MOST of the picks to make the offense run. He is a hustler and got mad heart. He is a big part of our defense. You might say he is boring to watch because he doesn't dunk the ball all the time, but you can bet money on his 15 foot jumper. You don't need a superstar on every position like Detroit showed us last season. We need good team players and Kurt is definetely one of the best overall TEAM PLAYER we have
