How are you gonna blame the Knicks doing nothing on Marbury? He did his job his first year and a half until Isiah started to trade the whole team away. The losing should be blamed on Isiah, anyone who doesnt blame this teams failure on him is an Isiahsexual. Check out his rap sheet. He made one bad trade after another. And since we got Curry this has been his team, not Marburys.
Marbury is a far better passer the Dwayne Wade will ever dream of being. While hes a step below JKidd and Nash, hes a couple of steps ahead of Wade when it comes to dishin and swishin (assists).
His weaknesses did not effect this team in his first year here, when he carried the team to the playoffs. When Marbury first came the struggling Knicks had a record of 14-21. When the season was over, our record was 39-43. We went 25-22 with Marbury. After that Houston got injured and we got Crawford in a trade and that was the end of the Knicks. Marbury averaged over 21 points and 8 assists but with Crawford chuckin up shots missin almost all of them and playing no defense, what pg could have brought the Knicks to the playoffs? At that point maybe only Iverson because the Knicks were in need of more offense so a pg like Kidd would not have made much of a difference and Chris Paul wasnt around yet. Michael Sweetney was gettin good minutes then, where is he now? As i mentioned earlier in this post, the injury of Nazr Mohammed that year didnt help.l
On the flipside, I think if Marbury was still here and we were winning games he wouldnt be sayin **** like this and Zach wouldnt be begging to be traded. Winning cures everything. Players dont always make the best comments while their team is losing and this has been seen throughout the history of the league.
