No matter how much they win or lose they're already better.

I would agree that the Knicks problem goes WAY beyond Marbury at this point. In order for the Knicks to start righting this ship they need to make some key personnel changes and both Marbury and Isiah should be at the top of the list along with a few other players! The philosophy that is in place right now is so non-productive and clueless that unless there is a change soon; the Knicks situation might become irreplaceable for a long time. If we bring in anymore high priced long term contracts to add on to what we already have; this City and this Franchise will enter an ice age! Not that we are far from on now. Marbury is just one component, be it a key component, to what ails the Knicks. Marbury, Curry, Crawford and now Randolph epitomizes the character and attitude of a NY Knick! Is it Marbury's fault that Isiah basically cloned him with the acquisitions that he made? No, but Marbury also made it impossible for multiple coaches to put any type of system in place if it didn't make him the focal point of attack. All the Stephon supporters say that He didn't ask to be a leader or a mentor or a floor general, yet he has stated many times (to reporters) that he can't understand why he is not looked upon as one of the premier players in this league and why his PG skills isn't heralded. When you have a "me" attitude as a 6'2" guard, where your agenda comes before an entire organization throughout your whole career; do you really think you are going to be hoisted up and revered?
Isiah is another one, he sits time after time in front of the camera with that sugary sweet attitude and charm and with the biggest set up balls that has come down the pike, has the nerve to say that he has made this team better than it has been in a long time. I mean, the nerve of this man to talk to every Knick fan and beat reporter like we a retards is appalling. What is worse, he actually believes that he has improved this team. Talking about illusions of grandeur! What ever he is smoking or swallowing is some of the most potent stuff ever created to believe he is the savior he thinks he is. Talking about a spin doctor!!!!!!
So no it is not all Stephon's fault but yes he is a huge part. If Isiah is the gasoline, Marbury is the fire fore sure!
What did Lee say in the press conference.......umm what was it? Oh yeah, he said the whole team supports Marbury, they want him back, and they all know hes a real good guy.
Anyone still arguin against Marbury is a F*ckin idiot
I dropped more knowledge then Krs on everyone. I brought up several key points and facts that were never responded to.
Metro has owned everyone. Now Trin Star comes in and owns Knicklover. This arguement was over so long ago.
Props to Metro, Trin Star, GoknicksDlee42, ABCD, and Pricey. We shut them the F*ck down!!!!! I wish they came with more, it was kind of boring and too easy.
Just to make it official.......
simple and plain, stephon is a shooting guard in a PGs body, he's is not a floor general and isiah belief that stephon was going be the savior failed, if stephon dont get his act together, he never going win a damn thing

MSG--I know you think you are droppin all this knowledge on us, but the fact is there are plenty of us Knicks fans that will never like Steph in a Knick uni. Four out of five since Steph quit on us again should be telling you a lot. The Knicks are playing there best hoops of the season without all of the drama Steph brings along with the talent. If you can't see that than you can't see the forest because all of the trees.
I said if his teammates don't like him there is no way the team will perform well - especially because he's one of the most important pieces on the team. If you don't understand that a team cannot function well in that kind of environment, then we can't even have a conversation because this is a very basic thing.
In addition, I said the evidence that many people (teammates, fans, press etc...) don't like him is very apparent. That's what makes all these arguments about stats and prior seasons irrelevant.
Jimchief, stfu. How you gonna bring up us winning 4 out of the last 5?
- Wizards beat Celtics Twice
- Pistons played 4th game in 5 days, after an OT win against Bobcats
- Miami ****in Sucks and we should have killed them!!!!
You cant F*ckin read, I posted up stats that showed that we were playing better before Marbury got hurt. Read everything in this post before opening your F*ckin mouth next time. Dont waste my F*ckin time with bull**** replies like this.
However, none of that has anything to do with my point.
My point is that if some of your current teammates don't like you, there is no way the team is going to do well when you are a key component of that team. Stats and arguments about 2003/2004, the Nets, Suns etc... are idiotic because they miss the point.
In addition, if some of his current teammates don't like him, some of his former teammates didn't like him, many of the fans don't like him, and some of the press doesn't like him, JUST MAYBE it could be HIS FAULT.
There are republicans that tell the press every day that they think the war in Iraq was a good idea and that they support the president. They do that because they are part of a team (politics) not because that's what they really think or feel.
If Lee told the press exactly what the players really think he would be doing exactly the wrong thing. He would have created a more hostile environment and controversy. It's a basic mature response to say "I support my teammates etc.." even when you think he's disruptive etc...
It must be terrible to be so biased that you can't take even the slightest bit of criticism, have to ignore the press reports that disagree with your points of view, and don't notice all the haters here.
It's so simple. The very fact that you are constantly here defending him from many people is proving beyond any showdow of a doubt that he's a controversial and disruptive force.
