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.
THURSDAY MORNING wtf man, i smoke too much.
my 9-5 is too laid back.
In hindsight, my expectations were WAAAAAAYY too high for Maciej Lampe.
I was so freakin' happy when we drafted that guy at #30
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.
couldn't agree more Marbury is the worst Knick ever in my eyes.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.
Two words: Stephon Marbury.

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.
