Why do we go through the same **** over and over??? lol
Listen next week - we all know what is Donnie's plan for Marbury.
The only reason Donnie has to buyout marbury is if he thinks he will be a negative locker room presence. Marbury stated that he will be going to train with the summer league. If he does go - this means that Donnie does not mind him being around the young blood and doesn't believe that he would "poison" their minds.
If for some reason, he doesn't do go - then you know for sure...he's done in NY.

Despite reports of his impending doom, an unfazed Stephon MarburyStephon Marbury said he will not change plans and is heading to Las Vegas Friday to work out with KnicksNew York Knicks veterans at a voluntary minicamp coinciding with summer league.
New hire Chris Duhon and Marbury's potential point-guard successor is also expected to work out with Marbury in Vegas, where the Knicks summer-league team will hold its first practice Friday night. Can you say awkward?
Marbury was in the Bahamas vacationing with his family on July 4 when Duhon agreed to terms with the Knicks on a two-year contract, after which his agent, Kevin Bradbury, labeled Duhon the Knicks starting point guard.

That further fueled speculation Marbury's Knicks' career was over.
"We will see how everything plays out in time," Marbury wrote in an e-mail to The Post yesterday from Los Angeles, where he is training in the Hollywood Hills.
A source aware of Marbury's status claims a decision won't be made on his future until August, at the earliest, after Knicks president Donnie Walsh plays the trade market. The Knicks want to see what more they can do before deciding whether to waive Marbury.
Walsh also wants to evaluate disappointing second-year point guard Mardy CollinsMardy Collins and combo guard Nate Robinson during summer league.
Walsh told a confidant last week he wants Duhon to push Marbury in training camp. But Walsh, a lawyer, has made misleading statements before during his brief Knicks reign.
"It's premature," one source said of Marbury's release. "That hasn't been decided. There are other things that can happen."
Despite the company line of evaluating the roster in August, this doesn't reek of a basketball decision. Marbury is better than any PG the Knicks have, but it seems the team wants Marbury back only as a last resort.
Marbury will perhaps become the scapegoat for last year's sexual harassment defeat, or his exit could become a symbol of next season's "fresh start."
Despite attempts, it's unlikely Marbury can be traded because they'd have to take back $21 million of contracts that expire before 2010.
Jamal Crawford, being shopped because his contract goes into 2010, could be traded, creating a stronger need for Marbury, whom Mike D'Antoni hasn't discounted playing alongside Duhon.
His friends say Marbury isn't worried about future employment if released. The Celtics would be on his radar, considering they need point-guard help and former teammate Kevin Garnett respects his game more than anyone. But on another level Marbury would be devastated at not getting a chance to reverse a tragic 2007-08 season where he played in just 24 games. Marbury lost his father, Donald, and lost his father figure, Isiah Thomas, in a feud that started in November, and his health, succumbing to another ankle surgery.
The Post reported last month Thomas sent Marbury home from Phoenix to be bought out of his contract. Sources believe Thomas turned on Marbury, irate at his overly blunt testimony during the trial regarding his affair with a club intern.

Where there is hope, there can be faith
Where there is faith, miracles can occur
How long will you cry like a little girl when Marbury is gone? You said you would leave KOL for 2 months because he will no longer be on the team. Now that's just f*cking pathetic. Like I said before, a Marbury fan over a Knick fan. No more Marbury in a Knicks uniform. What will you masturbate too?

I will lose all respect for you two if you boycott KOL if Marbury is traded or released. What does KOL have to do with that. It's not our decision to release Marbury. If it were mine, I'd shift him to the two and trade Crawford, but it's not. Not that I necessarily want you guys to keep posting because I appose nonsense and dickridery but don't bitch out. Pull your skirt back down B. People get traded every month B.
I say he comes back as a C - and drives to the basket all game long - cause we all know - the knicks leave the paint WIDE open lol

honestly... i have read where multiple knicks have heard that he's a change man every season and he no matter what never lives up to the hype... You need someone you can trust... a LEADER... marbury isnt that... we need to part ways with him and move on.....
Knick overall record with Marbury: 113-168(.402)
Knick overall record without Marbury: 38-91(.294)
This is why the **** i can't stand Marbury supporters. Cats are seriously co-signing Marbury like the KNICKs are .700 with him in the games. I mean we are talking about 11%!!!!
11% better with him...equates to him still being on the team, and being paid 20 million dollars? It breaks my heart to say this...but **** I'd rather have Allan Houston back on the team for that price. Atleast when he failed...he didn't get in other people's way and show up the franchise with dissing the coaches, the management, and the fans.
How ****ty have things gotten when 11% better with one player is acceptable to a TRUE KNICKS FAN?
Man it's like being happy to get a handjob, and she promised you *****.The **** kind of Mickey Mouse **** is this!!!
Marbury has had 5 seasons to show me something...In the words of Riley Freeman...
"Looking real gay my *****"
ps-the only gay person in here is you. I bet you watch the gay channel all the time, and you probably have hundreds of dollars in gay porn stashed in your bra.
I'm a Knick fan, everyone in this site knows my passion for this team. My statements are directed for the best for the Knicks.
Calm down, I'll leave for two months or even more because I'll be working two jobs and going to school full time and won't have the time to post like I do now.
Its a fact and a huge difference in team play. What would you rather have, a 49% team or a 60% team? Exactly, 11% is a huge difference, stop being depressed and just accept ABCD roasting you, it happends. You lack the facts, so when other dudes come in here with heavy facts that outweighs your irrelevant opinion, it becomes a slaughter.
Dissing the coaches?
Are you an Isiahsexual too?
I would diss Isiah on a daily basis if he was my coach.
He lets his players get out of shape.
Has no game plan.
Has no playing style.
Lets the worst defenders get the most playing time.
Puts his best player under the bus and uses him as the scapegoat.
Has new players every month.
Mad reasons to diss Isiah.
So you crying about Stephon dropping ether on Isiah makes you an Isiahsexual.
You caught feelings in defense for Isiah, you've been exposed now.
Ha, "True Knicks fan" If you're a "true Knicks fan", then me and many others would rather be "nontrue KNicks fan".
You've been getting slayed, b; its not looking pretty
This Marbury love fest is ridiculous. I have rooted for Steph for so long, but he always has beef with his coaches, if its not Steph's way it's the highway. That Chart that was posted was the worst kind of supporting evidence i've ever seen. I hope you never counsel for Steph.
Granted he never had the help, but you CAN NOT say that Steph is a leader of men. He lost me when he threatened to expose Isiah. Now, Isiah is an ass as well, but WOW, blackmailing?
Steph may need to be on a team where he is not that man and he has no clout. I still feel he has some power over this franchise, even though the regime has changed. Steph said he changed last year for the better, he found Christ, and all that stuff, and he just threatens his coach.
For the past 3 years he's been on the bench in the 4th quarter. I really don't see the point in Steph playing for the Knicks except to showcase for a deal.
If anybody still believes Steph will save this franchise, such a person has taken a blow to their basketball knowledge credibility.
Now Duhon, I dont believe in him either, but it's a good move, because the nature of the contract means he is he for the very short term. Cheap deal, short deal, younger player, i've heard of some run ins with coaches, but he is not the man here and it is short term.
