    Default What Starbury Haters Must Realize

    With all the recent talk about our point guard stephon marbury, a few things have come to my mind.

    In the offseason, Stephon Marbury has been constantly criticized by his haters becasue they seem to think he is not giving a full effort in preparing for the upcoming season. Marbury has previously stated that he has been "running through mountains" to prepare for the 08-09 season. Haters ASSUME that he has not been preparing. This is an ASSUMPTION and cannot be proven by FACTS. However, this somehow still leads to HATE from Marbury haters.

    Now, lets take a look at our power forward Zach Randolph. His off seaon workout has not exactly been helpful to himslef or the Knicks. First, it was revealed that Randolph was taking part in Club Fighting. This has been proven by FACTUAL DATA. Second, it has now been proven that Randolph will skip the team's workout in Las Vegas. Instead, he chose to throw a party in Indiana. These offseason activities do not (a) improve his defensive skills (b) improve his health or (c) get him to be a better basketball player. Now, Zach Randolph's offseason "preparation" has been proven by FACTS. Yet, does not lead to any hate, unlike Stephon Marbury.

    Next, lets look at On-Court Leadership.

    Stephon Marbury has sacrificed his shot attempts in order for his teammates to get the oppurtunity to score. This sentece alone is nothing but oppinion. But with FACTUAL DATA, this sentence turns into a FACT. (Factual Data):

    Number of Stephon Marbury shots attempted in the 2006-07 season: 952
    Number of Eddy Curry shots attempted in the 2006-07 season: 1016
    Number of Stephon Marbury Assists in the 06-07 season: 403

    Now, lets look at some stats of Zach Randolph.
    Assists in 07-08: 140
    Shot Attempts in 07-08: 1058

    Also, it is a FACT that Stephon Marbury is not known to start on court fights.
    What is also a FACT is that Zach Randolph threw a bottle at his own teammate in the huddle in overtime of a game vs. the wizards. But, once again, this has not lead to any major HATE.

    What Starbury haters need to realize is that there are larger problems on this team then Stephon Marbury. Also, there are more valid arguments to be made about players on this team other then Stephon. Stephon Marbury is not the bad guy on this team. Remember, the reason Steph got surjury and sacrificed last season, which was going no where anyway, so that he can be 100% for the 2008-09 season, where with Isiah Thomas gone, there would be a much greater chance of winning.

    great thread.

    Its a mystery to me, i dont know why they all chose to hate marbury and blame him. They wanna talk about bad character i think they need to point the finger at zach randolph. If they wanna talk about losing games they need to point the finger at crawford. But somehow marbury ends up being the scapegoat for everything.

    Can't wait for team "starburys" self imposed two month walk off the site after the buyout. What will you guys call yourself after hes gone? I'm sure during your two month hiatous you would be able to come up with something atleast slightly clever.

    Please, just one Marbury thread.

    The other Marbury threads from yesterday were closed by KO.com becuase that is how outrageous this is getting.

    Rady- make a public statement and start suspending users on both side of the marbury war...closing threads has no effect it seems.

    So Marbury is great because he's great in FANTASY LEAGUES? Where stats count...fact that he's a loser has no bearing.

    It's a fact. Wilt Chamberlin has better #'s than Bill Russell hand's down it's not even ****ing close...and yet Russell not Chamberlin is considered the greatest Center of all TIME.

    Why?

    10 championships.

    PERIOD!

    Want another?

    Oscar Robertson greater player than Magic Johnson could ever be...yet don't get nowhere near the admiration Magic gets...strictly in terms of on the court prowess? Why?

    Magic has more championships.

    Julius Erving...very well may have been the GREATEST NBA PLAYER OF ALL TIME....whose considered greater than him?

    MICHEAL JORDAN...6 CHAMPIONSHIPS TO HIS 3..( 2 FROM THE ABA)

    SO YES STATS DON'T ****ING COUNT!

    At least marbury can say hes been to the playoffs 4 times. He hasnt been the #1 option for a couple years, why call him a loser? If your gonna do that you have the call the whole team losers which at this point i would agree but i think some of them have potential to do better if they had better circumstances. Our biggest individual loser is clearly jamal crawford closely followed by Eddy Curry.

    Marburys career has been great statistically...but he hasnt had much of an oppertunity to prove himself the last couple of years because of a lack of support. Not too many if any nba stars could make this team look good. In 2006-07 Marbury didnt have one of his best statistical years but in the opinion of some he had his best year because he stepped up his defense and showed alotta heart. Where did it get is? It almost got us to the playoffs but is it marburys fault that we missed the playoffs? **** no the blame goes 100% to Isiah thomas for bringing in a supporting cast of clowns like Eddy curry, jamal crawford and jared jeffries.

    Oscar Robertson>>>Tragic Johnson
