    Default Stephon Marbury will be an All-star this season.

    According to FoxSports.com in an interview with Magic Johnson, Magic answers a few questions regaurging Larry Brown, the Knicks and the status of the Lakers. I'll let you guys read the interview for your self but here's a direct quote from the Magic.
    "Larry will know how to get in Steph's head and bring him to the all-star level. Mark my words: he'll be an all-star this year."

    My question is this, if Marbury reaches all-start status this comming season will you all finally stop the "Marbury should be traded movement" and admit the reason we're losing is not because of Marbury, it's because your beloved Alan Houston's a cripple! Crippled mind and a beat up body.

    i predict marbury will average a solid 20 and 10. hopefully he could split the defence like he always has but better this time. im guessing his points will increase if he starts at the 2 or decreases if he starts at the point again because we have finishers on the starting line up now

    Brown will hopefully take Stephon to the next level, but doe sthat mean he will best eastern conference guards like Iverson, Kidd, Carter, Lebron, D-Wade, Billups, etc? Its a tough field out there and Stephon's improvement would have to be dramatic to really get voted into the allstar game.

    how can we blame a loss on someone when a player does not play



    its like blaming our losses on bruno sundov or have larry brown blame the championship loss on dark millichic(sp?)


    the reason why people want marbury traded not because he is no good....because of his horrible contract , and his bad knees. and hes aging


    he could verywell wind up just like allan houston on the bench with all that salary....


    people want him gone cuz we can still get somthing great for him while his value is still high


    if u remember houston was an allstar not to long ago(2-3 years ago). and now look at him.



    houston has done so much for this ball club u should no this unless u just started to watch basketball

    well marbury only missed 2 games over the past 3 years and started every single game this year. chances are he'll be pretty healthy come 05-06

    I remember Sprewell doing alot for this ball club. But no one talks about that. I watched Latrell Sprewell single handidly put this team on his back in the play offs a few years back and Houston was, you guessed it, injured! Camby did very little and Thomas did very little offensively. But no one falls in love with Sprewell. It's all about Houston. What did he do other than drain the life out of this team. It is because of the poor business and his huge contract that the knicks have the highest paid team and worse productive team in the "history" of the NBA. We made history. Ever heard of the Alan Houston clause. That's Houston's legacy. That's what he did for New York. But it's not entirely Houston's fault. The guys a good shooter not a good shooting gaurd. You want a three, Houstons your man. You want a leader, sorry,wrong guy. And "thinking" fans would know this if they didn't have a hard-on for Houston and Thomas.

    Default Starbury

    I am a big fan of NY but i don`t like Marbury. The best thing would be to trade him and try to get a leader like Nash

    the reason Houston is blame-able is because he was very important to our depth @ the 2 guard position, a very important piece to the rotation.
    He made claims all summer long "i'll be ready for the season opener" and never did, he took an extra 2 months and didn't come back to full strength.
    He also wanted to them to go after Dampier rather than Crawford and if we didn't get Crawford we would have been SCREWED!.
    But i'm not blaming him either way just like no one should be blaming Marbury for a WHOLE season, Its a team thing when will ya'll figure that out? bad coaching = makes a bad team which is exactly what Lenny Wilkens was @ that point of his career.

    JUDGE THE TEAM DON'T SINGLE OUT ANY PLAYER BECAUSE NO MATTER IF ONE PLAYER MESSES UP YOUR TEAMMATES ARE SUPPOSE TO HAVE YOUR BACK wether it be defensively or emotionally.

    2005 - 2006 should be a beautiful thing to watch "THE COMING TOGETHER OF THE NEW YORK KNICKS"

    So Houston never had an injury until 03-04. Never missed a game. Come on. Think back to 99-00 play offs. Our eastern conference finals loss to the Pacers 4-2. We got our asses handed to us cause your boy didn't show up. Don't talk to me about facts. The facts speak for them selves. The facts is that we had two starting two gaurds. One, Latrell Spreewell played out of his natural position and even for a brief period before he got traded, played point. Then you have your beloved Houston who is overpaid, over rated, and an underachiever. You wanna talk facts!
    FACT Knicks loose in game 6 to Pacers. Where was Houston. That game was put on the backs of Spreewell and Patrick Ewing. You do know who Ewing is don't you. If not I really am waisting my time. And that was a close one. But we're talking facts right. Look that one up. I think Houston was hurt. If not, he just didn't show up for one of the most important game in franchise history. But I don't want to turn this into hate on houston campaign. You know, like the one many so called fans are running on Marbury. The only star we currently have.

    Wut about the first year when spree came to the knicks (98-99)and spreewell was injured for most of the season..HE WAS INJURED FOR 3/4 OF THE SEASON......


    SPREE REALLY HELPED US GET TO THE P/OFFS THEN WHEN HE GOT TRADED TO US IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEASON.......

    and i just looked online to backup my statement.....and houston played 50 games that year and spreewell only started 4 games and played 37 games that year for the knicks.....how did he carry the knicks


    dont talk to me about ewing, like i dont no wtf he is..next are u going to bring up john starks or charles oakley......stfu


    get off of spreewells **** he was wack....he did **** for the knicks and that is a FACT...


    spreewell was never known for a clutch player like houston....houston could make those big time shots when needed....he could carry the team when they were down and bring them back

    when spree would buckle......spree is garbage and was a bad move bringing him to NY......


    spree was never the star in ny......NEVER!

    O and i see where ur coming jay and i agree with u.... but u cant blame a lost season on a single player especially since he was injured and when he played he played injured.....


    i hope he can come back and be solid for us off the bench.....but isee his carear coming to an end soon

    but i love the guy....hes a real coo dude and i met him and got to talk to him a few times before some knick games and i got a few autographs.....i hope he retires and not go to another team

    I'm sorry, did you say Houston was known as a clutch player? Yo I'm laughing my *ss off now. I'll give you a small amount of credit. You did a lil reasearch. And yes it's true that Houston made the All star team more than Spreewell. This may sound strange but if you follow Spree's carrier you'd know that he was the first player in sports history to choak his coach! In my opinion, that has alot to do with why he only made the all-start team once. The NBA constantly makes questionable decisions. Like Nash being MVP over Shaq or Wade. Personally I favored NaSh, but that's neather here or there. The point is you're a Houston fan and I'm not so we're not going to aggree on this. You will make him sound better that he is and I might make him sound worse. We have different perspectives. Houston was never a clutch player by any one's deffinition. Chris Child's was a clutch player, Nick Van Excel, Michael Findley, Dwayne Wade, Ray Allan, theese are clutch players. And if your still in the research mood, research who's jersey sold more between 99-03, Houston or Spreewell.

    I'm guessing we can name this thread the Sprewell-Houston debate. I personally preferred Spree over Allan. Houston was a better shooter, but Spree was streaky and attacked the hole. Allan barely looks to go to the rim. Spree as also a better defender and always played his heart out.
