    Default R.I.P. to Don Marbury; Stephon Marbury upset with how Knicks handle everything

    a family member of Stephon (and nephew of his late father), called in WFAN(Radio station in NYC), and he was very mad about how the Knicks handled the situation.

    They said there was no word until after the game, when it had happened earlier. They should've told him he had a heart attack during the game, and he could've had some final moments with his dad before he passed. The caller/nephew was disgusted

    Not sure if this was coming straight from Marbury, but the nephew said "This is the last time he's ever playing with them", the family is really disgusted with the Knicks right now, and caller was saying that he was "done with him".



    Anyway...this is tough, there are things more important than basketball; we can't even give it a thought of Marbury coming back to the Garden...I break down emotional when I pass by the building my grandmother use to live in. Imagine how Marbury would feel playing in the Garden where his grandfather died. Plus the jungle Dolan and Isiah are running in MSG...too much chaos and unprofessionalism, especially for emotionally drained guys like Richardson and Randolph. Its just not good right now, Marbury tried to do the right thing; giving back as much as possible to the community...hell I got 3 pair of starbury's my left...**** 200-300 sneakers. Marbury's parents did a good job raising a child who understands its more important to build for the future than be a ho to a sneaper company(Lebron).

    Another failure by Dolan and Isiah...damn **** those guys, I can't ****ing stand them one bit. I am completely disgusted with this organization, and this should just be another example of why this organization is pathetic.

    I don't blame him for being upset. If I didn't get a chance to spend my last moments with a fam member just because of insane policy "to keep things inhouse", I think I would sue the Garden myself.

    Stephon needs to take the rest of the season off and focus on himself. This is more than the Knicks at this point.

    What a sorry ass franchise. wow

    Now this is some ****ed-UP **** to here.

    Marbury may deserves some boos and Fines, but HELL NO! he did not deserve any of this **** from a BACKWARD organization. Not when it comes to an illness to Mama or Papa...

    I agree with the sentiment here. I believe Steph should have been told as soon as possible (on a break, during a time out, etc...). Unless the heart attack occurred with only a few minutes left in the 4th quarter, someone made a very big error in judgement by not telling him. The only possible excuse is that Garden people didn't know it was Steph's father when it happened and the information was not communicated back to the Garden from the hospital about who it was until the game was over.

    if they find out this happened early on in the game, and IT, or dolan knew, they should DEFINITELY be fired for that....as if there wasn't already enough things that make fans angry. Damn if this story ever came out in the press, imagine wat would happen to isiah during the games. he's already one of the most hated people in NY.

    I pray for Marbury, I know that hes religious now and God will help him get through everything. He found god at the right time because hes had it tough so far this year. Hes a great person whos done great things with the Starbury clothing and shoes, he donates just as much money as anyone else. I got mad love for Marbury and my heart goes out to him and his family.

    Isiah deserves to be shot if he knew and withheld that info from steph. We dont know all the details yet but I hope this wasnt the case.

    I feel for the Marbury family. That being said, they knew Don Sr. was ill. So why would they bring him to the lion's den that is The Garden? NY Daily news said he was experiencing difficulties for weeks. I don understand why the family would bring him to a place there was so much disgust and hatred directed at his son. How did the family percieve that he ailing physiology would respond to such a chaotic and stressful situation? To me this is a stupid as having heart problems and going skydiving. Sure, people should be able to go where they want, but do so with caution.

    ur a great player man u just need the rite team
    How many times has that been said? My father said: there comes a time when it stops being everyone elses fault and the blame is on you. For Marbury's basketball career, that time has been here for a while.

    Why must you insist to even stir up anything negative up in here?
