Who cares. With or without tattoo head, this team was not making the playoffs. I read some of the teammates were promised by management that he wouldn't be here. I think a lot more went on last year than we know about.
Think of all of the coaches that Mebury has either gotten fired or feuded with. I think it's been all of them. Now a coach is sticking it to him. Payback's a bitch...aint it.
Ive been a marbury fan my whole life, and i accept if you wanna insult me for being a starbarian or whatever the hell you cats call it, but in reality i feel like there is more going on behind the scenes, the knicks remind me of politicians, cause they will look you in the face and tell you what u wanna hear but we just know theres so much going on in the background.....i just want to see him play in some form even for another team, they talk about developing gallo, i dont know the developmental league rules, why dont we send him down there for some PT experience, and pick spurts in the nba games where we can go small at times against certain opponents and get marbury 20 minutes, i watched all preseason him and duhon worked well together. Not only could we use him for the offense, he seems to be one of our top 2 defenders, despite his size, he does really well against ray allen like players, and has good balance and posistion to defend their post up games aka lebron and wades and mello's of the world. i know this sounds like a tribute, but i dont care, im sorry i watched preseason hes in great shape, his attitude is better for what we fans can see, and i just thing were wasting an assest. maybe its just me i like him wearing #3 rather than a nice suit.
ill take my chances with marbury guarding anybody under 6-8.
yeah clean toilets. thats good stuff, they couldnt use his 20-8, lets get him on msg matienence.
D'Antoni benched Marbury because he's a ****in idiot!...he still thinks that he'll trade Marbury like he did in Pheonix and another Steve Nash will break out like Nash did, only to realize that Duhorn/ Collins is nowhere near Nash as a point gaurd basketball player. D'Antoni pissed me off with this benching its pointless and is ****ing retarded. Hope he gets chased home by a bunch of knick fans chanting WE WANT MARBURY!
Having Marbs inactive makes no sense at all! He's not hurt or out of shape and has caused no problems since new management arrived. D'Antoni won't even play him limited minutes. At least bring him into games when Collins and Duhon are not contributing anything. This move doesn't appear to be what's best for the organization right now because the more they lose and get blown out, the more stupid his benching will look.
I have a strong feeling that management has decided to go for a top 5 draft pick this year as part of the rebuilding and then try to scoop up Lebron in 2010. They don't care about wins at this point.
I don't get this either as I've stated before in other threads. I understand benching Curry, he didn't show up for preseason in shape and hasn't practiced well. Marbury on the other hand did show up in shape and willing to do what the coaching staff asked of him from what I understand.
If you're standing out in practice, putting in the hard work, improving, or being consistent, you should be playing in games... it's as simple as that!
