The problem with Marbury is that he doesn't play defense, plays with no intensity, no drive, doesn't stick up for his teammates backs. He's talented no doubt, but he lacks these fundamentals.
Look at the past Knicks teams. Oakley, Ewing, Starks, Derek Harper, Sprewell, McDaniel... etc. They all played with intensity and they always stuck up for one another. Like the recent game with Kenyon Martin. He was dunking the ball everywhere. Do you think past Knick teams would tolerate that? Hell no! They would knock him on his butt and get into his head. This Knicks team doesn't have the bad boy image in them. New York has always been a hustle and grinding team. Where has it gone??
