i wouldnt mind seeing marbury be traded. but, in his defense, i dont think the fact that every team he has been traded from has become good after he left really has that much to do with him. in minnesota, they were a young team. garnett hadn't become an mvp type player. they didn't have other good role players like sczerbiak, spree, and cassell. so minnesota only became good after garneet became better and they made other key additions. with the nets, same thing. marbury got traded before richard jefferson, kenyon martin, and kerry kittles all became great players. he never got to reap the benefits of having a great SF and PF to run up and down the court with him. same thing in phoenix - amare was just a rookie (or in his second year) and still learning his craft, marion was still improving, joe johnson wasn't a great shooter yet, and richardson wasn't even there. then, with the knicks, houston got injured, crawford hogs the ball, and there's nobody else around. its not really marbury's fault. but, with that said, i dont think marbury is a "carry the franchise on your back" type player, and i wouldnt mind trading him (along with houston) for contracts that will expire this season and young talent (if it could even be done).
