    Default Steph redeems himself:The Starbuary war officially ends today!

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Stephon Marbaury has offically turned over a new leaf, and Knick fans should embrace it. No one has ever doubted his talent, but its been his attitude that has been the concern of Knick fans. But in this interview Steph has shown that he is putting what is best for the team before what himself. I know non supporters have a lot of stock in their dislike of him, while I have been a supporter of his, I did dedicate a thread going at him for not wanting to accept a role off the bench. It appears now Steph is going to accept that role for the good of the team and just wants to do whatever to help us win. This sort of stance from Steph is a step in the right direction to getting us back to being a basketball team instead of a on going Soap Opera! Today ends the notion of a "Team Starbuary" too (unless you're just recongnizing him as your favorite player on the squad) because I think after this interview all Knick fans are/should think of themselves as total supporters of his like any other playerer on the team not named Jerome James....just playing about Jerome hell I hope he has a good season too!

    Good Job Steph! And now lets just focus on winning some damn games!

    When it comes to this Knick Team and the quarterback PG-decision-making between Marbury or Crawford? I prefer Marbury & Nate or Marbury & Collins.
    The way training-camp has been going I prefer Marbury & Duhorn as starters over poor passing skills and poor decision-making Jamal Crawford.

    The Knicks need two guards in the starting lineup that have no fear at slashing threw the lane for a layup to put teams bigmen in early foul trouble.
    Jamal Crawford has a problem with doing that.

    Marbury do set himself on a higher pedestal than his teammates in his career..... could be the damn huge 5, 10, or $15 million pay-raise above all his teammates except for KG and Allan Houston.

    The knicks were on NBA TV for real training camp and rick kamla was talking with Clyde and frazier was saying that even in Marbury's absolute worst year at a pro - he averaged 14pts and 5asts - which would be career years for either nate or duhon....
    Now that's classic from the living legend!

    Real Knick fans would embrace Marbury's confidence before this statement.

    He should said that to shut up complaining and whining hating Knick fans like NNY, because all they do is start drama and view everything as negative and wrong.

    Marbury says he expects to be a starter, its get blown out of proportion and its seen as Marbury trying to take over the team.

    Jameer Nelson says he wants to play a bigger role on the team, and no one says anything negative.

    Its just the person. If Marbury was to say what Nelson said, Marbury's head would be wanted by every Isiahsexual and fakeass Knick fan.

    New New York, you're weak like a man with quadriplegia. You were never part of the Starbury War...that **** goes back to classic and original posters on this site...the war isn't even that serious now, but it was something you never apart of.

    Stop trying so hard to be e-cool, spending your whole day trying to post articles as fast as you can on this site and writing essays with no logic or original statements.

    Call this an insult.
    Cry.
    Complain.
    B*tch at me for another 3 essays or 4.

    You won't bring anything new to the table here.

    Marbury is here to stay.

    All you guys who wanted him waive will now see him have his glory back in NYC.

    He will get big minutes, starting or not.
    Because he's the most skilled, experienced, successful and talented player on this roster.
    Thats just the way it is and the way it will be.

    Finally, homeboy is saying the right things... he finally seems to have stepped up to the next level and allowed himself to take this opportunity to erase 1o years of controversy and rebuild himself into a player that adds value to his team.

    These words are the sign of a new era and I'M ****ING ESTATIC!!!

    "I don't want to go through any more distractions," Marbury told The Post. "I want all of us to concentrate on winning and not if I'm going to start or not. I want us to be able to go forward. If the Knicks want me to come off the bench, that's what I'm going to do. I just want to win a championship in New York because we as New Yorkers deserve a chip."

    "I don't feel Duhon should have to go through that," Marbury said last night. "I don't feel D'Antoni should have to go through that. I don't want to go through another year of distractions. I just want to kill it now."

    In what appeared to be an apology to his mates who feel that way, Marbury said, "Jamal Crawford is right. No one person is better than the organization. I have faith in us playing better than the last two, three years."

    Marbury, 31, in the best shape of his career, has been hurt by suggestions his teammates don't want him around. In fact, he has asked several of them during training camp if they had a problem with him. Marbury hasn't received any negative responses.

    "I know how sweet it would be if we ever win a championship in New York, or even how sweet it would be going to the playoffs," he said. "I love New York with everything I've got."

    BRING THE PLAYOFFS BACK TO NEW YORK!!!

    Default Marbury

    Marbury's recent comments should go a long way in dissipating, if not entirely eliminating, any of the lingering resentment of his team mates. If he is sincere, and there is no reason to believe he is not, he should be embraced by management as well as by the team. He has done everything one could possibly hope for in preparing for this year. He is the Knicks' best player. He should get plenty of playing time.
    The only draw back is that he will probably cause us a few spots in the 2009 draft.

    Isnt this the 3rd or 4th time we've heard Marbury say he's turning over a new leaf? Man just buy him out, please.

    Forget stats, its all about winning guys. When Steve Nash signed with the Suns he turned the same team Marbury played with into a championship contender.

    Marbury = zero playoff wins. That says it all. He's had his chance, I'm sick of losing get him out of here!

    i guess id like to c what question does the media have left for marbury. if he ok with commin off the bench whats next????

    fine job of sendin the media back to the drawing board to figure out another way to get him to say something stupid.

    if marbury has success this season . it will look like the blame falls on isiah and dolan for hiring him.

    smart tactic.. gotta give the coney island kid some credit here.

    I think with this statement by Steph, he may have his best year. When you put team first it just makes you better. I think when he starts coming off the bench he may be humble and he may prove that he is a starter and will eventually takeover Duhon's job.

    I happy Steph said this and I am looking forward to his performance this season. Go head Steph.

    I don't want him thinking about taking over Duhon's job... that's not giving Chris a fair shot, like Marbury said he deserves. That shouldn't be Marbury's focus at any moment this season.

    I think Marbury will kick ass as the first scoring guard off the bench. He'll get more than 30 minutes anyways and i think opposing defenses will have more of a hard time stopping him in this role.

    Just think a minute people... if Coach focuses on Duhon and Mardy as the floor generals with JC and Marbury as the scorers and Nate playing combo at both spots... our backcourt is very deeeeeep in guard skills. Duhon and Stephon together should function nicely if we also have Nate or JC in there. Mardy will probably see the least minutes here, but the other four would together present a formidable group.

    Marbury without doubt is our most talented player but I think the rotation will be more deadly if he's coming in the game to push in the dagger.
