    None of those guys was Rod Stricklands coach.

    This is what YOU wrote.........

    Headcoach JVG was a decent strategic defensive-coach that related
    well with his players. His biggest negative as a headcoach was developing
    college level players into NBA level players.
    New Yorkers who watched the outstanding performance of "Rod Strictland"
    years before Strictland entered the NBA are still "wondering" how coach
    JVG never had the time to give a high-profile PG-Strictland any playingtime
    to build a coaches-confidence in his PG player.


    JVG did not coach Rod Strickland, and neither did those other guys.

    In hindsight, my expectations were WAAAAAAYY too high for Maciej Lampe.

    I was so freakin' happy when we drafted that guy at #30

    Starbury, when we signed him i thought we were going to be a best of the east. After 6 months i lost any hope. A year in and i hated the guy more than any walking creature in gods land.

    Good call on Starbury, I felt the exact same way you did when we traded for him. Was excited as hell when Isiah pulled off that trade, & even had high hopes for Penny Hardaway. I thought Starbury was gonna be the guy that brought the Knicks back. Boy, was I wrong. He is now easily the most hated Knick ever in my eyes.

    He's not my most hated Knick EVER (Eddy Curry, Jerome James, etc.) but man Starbury really ruined his time here.

    Dude should've just shut the hell up and play basketball. It probably didn't help that Isiah was coach, though.

    Yeah if anything Isiah was just feeding his ego. I remember watching an interview with Marbury where he was praising Isiah and saying that Isiah helped him become a man LOL. Then after that vaseline video his career just went down the drain.

    He is for me. I hated Eddy Curry's lazy attitude & hated the fact that we ever signed Jerome James to begin with, but Marbury took his assholish ways to another level. Outwardly undermined the head coach, put himself above his team, played a key role in creating a circus atmosphere behind the scenes (no doubt dissuaded other good professional players from wanting any part of coming here as a result) & along w/Isiah managed to make the Knicks franchise into the laughing stock of the NBA. Marbury had the chance to become a NY sports legend & icon & he threw it away because he was too arrogant & self involved to think beyond anything but himself.

    couldn't agree more Marbury is the worst Knick ever in my eyes.

    Two words: Stephon Marbury.

    Also...Timofey Mozgov.

    Yeah, Marbury...

    It's a shame too. There's no doubt in my mind that he's was a tremendously talented player (not the best PG in the league as he would say, but talented nonetheless) but he really ruined his time in New York.

    To think that there was a point where I thought he'd be the next franchise player to return the franchise to glory. How wrong I was.
