You get awfully worked up Metro I bet you jam your keys responding to me.Look you and all your "fans" (still LMAO at that one) can ignore all you want. I told you before I don't care about your poster ratings and all that, it's irrelevant to most of the posters on this site as well.

    Back to what really matters....Duhon plays for The Knicks, if he doesnt perform well then the team does not do well! So it is dumb to want him to under preform for the sake of being right about Steph. So far the offense has looked solid with the rotation being what it is, so who cares who starts the game. Steph could be the spark plug off the bench like Lee was the past couple of years that gave us a push when the starting five was slack. I say why not try Crawford as sixth man and let Steph play the Off Guard during preseason game to see how it works?
    No disrepect New York, but I don't see the sense in starting Duhon. You are basically saying that Duhon is better than Steph. You dont c Mike James starting ova Cp3 cuz CP3 is the better player. Just as Steph is better than Duhon. P.S been gone 4 a minute back to rep hard in tha starbury wars. Team Starbury stand up!

    stephon is the most talented player on our team, without a doubt... but I believe our team is much better with him coming off the bench to provide instant offense instead of having to focus on being the main playmaker. Let Duhon and Collins worry about playmaking duties and let Stephon focus on being the best scorer he can be. just my opinion.

    I have to agree with this post. Steph won't start at pg unless Duhon completely folds at this point, and personally, I don't want Duhon to fold because he plays for OUR TEAM. The better Duhon plays, the better the team will be. Quite simply, the Marbury pg era has ended in NY barring an injury which no one wants.

    I like the way Steph is playing though. You can tell he is buying into now realizing it's a war he can't win. And for the sake of the team he is embracing his role. There will still be plenty of points and assist's to go around in this offense. And Steph will still play 30 min a night.

    I feel he will still eventually be traded. But he will play well until then, and we'll at least get value back for him instead of nothing. Only way he won't be traded is if by his play willingness to play a lesser role. If he makies it past the trading deadline, there is a slight chance I believe he'll be back next year. No matter what the Knicks brass says, it's a luxury having a player of his caliber on the team, especially of the bench.

    Should be a fun year. I expect 45-50 wins.

    Word, Marbury should be in the starting lineup. D'Antoni's starting lineup is a popularity contest. He's starting Q-Hitch, because he played for D'Antoni in Phoenix. He's starting Chris Duhon, because Marbury has a bad reputation with the media, and because a lot of fans listen to the media's b.s. It's not right. Marbury and Chandler should be starters.

    Chris Duhon doesn't know how to make plays. He sucks. Marbury should be the #1 option on offense and the #1 playmaker. Marbury's capable of averaging at least 18 and 6, given the freedom. Zach Randolph could be used as the 2nd option on offense, and Jamal Crawford could be used as the 3rd option on offense. David Lee and Wilson Chandler should also be in the starting lineup.

    First of all, saying Duhon should start over Marbury is not saying Duhon is the better, more talented player. It means he just fits better in the situation you are in. It's like starting a worse player in baseball to play the percentages against a pitcher. If Duhon can move the ball and make the easy pass better than Marbury, and that's what D'Antoni wants from his PG, then that's who should start, end of sentence. If D'Antoni wants his PG to shoot a lot, try and make a lot of plays himself, and that's what Marbury brings to the table, then Marbs should start.

    The Mike James:CP3 comparison to Duhon:Marbury is undoubtedly the most idiotic comparison I have ever heard in my entire life. CP3 is a candidate for MVP this year, of course your MVP candidate should prob. be starting. Marbury is not CP3...

    You don't get it. Marbury is a top 10 point guard in the NBA. Duhon is a 3rd string point guard. Marbury averages 7.8 assists, for his career. He's clearly a better play maker and scorer than Duhon. D'Antoni is starting Duhon, because he bought the bulls#!t that the media always says about Marbury.

    And about the CP3 comparison, I agree, it's stupid. Mike James is better than Duhon. James averaged 20 points, at one point in his career.

    No, I do get it. But starting a guy doesn't mean you are saying one is better than the other. I like Marbury, a lot. At the same time I trust the coaches. And if the coaches say Duhon fits better in the system, then I'll give him a shot. If it starts to look like Duhon doesn't work, if they start 2-7 or something, I'm all for Marbury being there. But Duhon is who D'Antoni wanted, I say let the kid have his shot if Mike D'Antoni believes. If Duhon makes smarter passes than Marbury in the system installed, I don't have a problem with it. I have a problem if Duhon doesn't perform well, but he looked good last night.

    Shauny hear me out....You cant measure talent by who is in the starting five all the time.I agree with your example of CP3 but lets take the Spurs for instance for a better comparison; Manu Ginobli is only a part time starter for the Spurs but is clearly more talented than the two players he plays behind (Bowen, and Finley). Manu gives his team a lift off the bench and is often in the game down the stretch, if Steph doesnt start then I see him in that sort of role and doing good at it. Again he is better than Duhon like Manu is better than Bowen and Finley, but he will provide some very good play off the bench.....IF that is his role this year, again I think it is too early to call!

    I think thats a very good comparison. Marbury is still an elite point guard. Duhon is a solid backup, nothing more. Hes not capable of starting. He was lucky last night, we all know hes not that good of a shooter.

    Marbury is better at everything. Hes a better passer, defender, scorer, and hes got more swag.

    Yes, but that was a preseason game. He also played poorly against the Toronto Raptors, if you remember. I've seen Chris Duhon play before, and he sucks. F*(k Duhon!

    Team Starbury 4 life! Chris Duhon sucks.

    Don't matter about talent. Marbury isn't top 10. Look at his numbers and his winning percentage. Guy can have all the talent in the world but if he doesn't get it done and doesn't show that talent, it doesn't mean anything.
