We got all these new posters on here. Some of you might be aliases...i dont care who is, it wont have any impact on the end of this thread.

So lets have a debate to end the longest lasting debate on this site.
Let me start it off by saying somethin that my fellow starbarian said in another thread.

DaTPRiNCE...That EGYPTiAN Fella, #MeloMafia
In Minnesota, Stephony and KG were touted as the next Stockton-Malone 1-2 combo. Sadly, Stephony was unable to accept the secondary role to Garnett, or the No.2 money that came with it and was unable to ever be compared to Johnny Stockton. This comparison, is Stephony's greatest achievement to date. He honestly thought he was worth more than The Ticket. Champ, MVP, Defensive POTY. Deary me.
Marbury forced his way out of Minnesota, going in March 1999 to New Jersey.
As the focal player in New Jersey, Marbury's numbers were impressive. Very much so. And still, are what keeps his career averages so high. His highlights were impressive, his stats just as impressive! His team, well, they were sh1t. Cashin' in on the stat sheet as the best player on a rubbish team has been seen before. T Mac and J Stack have led the league in ppg under the same circumstances. The impressive numbers were (and still are) niceties for a non-winning all star. New Jersey then make the trade for a winner in J Kidd and reach the finals by the end of the very next season. Marbury is traded to Phoenix.
When compared to Kidd, Marbury labels the comparison as an invalid one as he is "the best pg in the league" when counter questioned as to why Kidd's addition had such an impact it changed a losing team to an elite one, Marbury replied " we have different styles "...... Jesus Christ.
Surrounded by the likes of Marion, Stoudemire and a supporting cast of impressive players in Phoenix, Marbury's numbers were high as ever. Success appeared imminent! However, it was not to be. After a series of disappointments and 10 days in the slammer with a d.u.i, the Suns had an epiphany and much like the Nets, replaced Marbury with a superior counterpart. Steve Nash. 2 time MVP.
Perhaps the Knicks can manage to follow suit and trade Marbury for Chris Paul? It would seem unfair to gain nothing in return for a douche after the Nets and Suns garnered 2 of the greatest pgs in history!
Off to NY, the return home to glory!!!!!!
I really don't have the time to write it all down.
The general term is failure. His whole career has been a series of selfish moves and unreasonable financial demands, unredeemed by his performance on the court, where he has been a fairly consistent loser.
It all became clearer here on our floor and in our fu%king locker rooms and on our cap.
With the Knicks, he has been ungovernable, ranting, expensive and sulky, whether playing for Larry Brown or his ex-homie Isiah Thomas. Thomas was so engulfed in Marbury being a saviour that he actually fired Larry Brown in an attempt to appease Marbury and keep himself from inevitable slandering as the man who brought the ever failing, ever whining douche of a pg to NY. Marbury in turn threatened Thomas with exposure regarding some very "touchy" subjects.
Last season's embarrassments included the revelation that he had sex with an intern in his car. He turned on Thomas, and deserted his team during a road trip to Phoenix when Thomas threatened to take away some of his playing time and he then had surgery on his ankle as an obvious excuse to sit out the season.
I could go on but I won't.
I love the Knicks and Marbury has done nothing but embarrass them, underachieve as their leader, put himself before the blue and orange at every turn, become increasingly worse as a player and an adult, insult the franchise as proud as it is with childishness and selfishness and get payed like Mike throughout the entirety of his tenure. As history shows time and again with Marbury, he is a loser. A loser bounding with physical ability and mired in a lack of mental ability, the latter being the superior in weight of the 2.
Thank christ he is finally on the verge of exiting.
In hindsight, I have just wasted almost 20 mins trying to force clarity into the mind of a moron...... MSGknickz33 .... and his band of ladies who praise him because he praises them.
He will now retort in his fashion of avoidance and ultimately embarrass himself as he did when he foolishly attempted to argue with Tr1llion (who I think is an excellent poster.) who absolutely raped him and he in return had the gaul to preach his superiority and lack of necessity to converse with an inferior poster.
Unbelievable. He and his fairy tribe should leave with Marbury. Honestly, what will you do upon his abolishment?
I apologize to anyone I offended except for the afore mentioned. I'm sorry to put H8 all over the site. But, I have seen so much spitting from this kids mouth and all I wanna do is have constructive conversations about the Knicks future as it is so intricate, interesting .
I have been a fan for 16 years from the age of 12. Go Knicks!!!!!!!!
Salvation is at hand!
Your post is very unfair, BIGPAT so let me clear some things up.
#1-In New Jersey, the Nets made the finals for numerous reasons. Stop acting as if it was just Jason Kidd. First of all, Richard Jefferson got drafted to the Nets. Second of all, Kenyon Martin became more experienced. Third, the Nets had a better defensive lineup than the one that Marbury had.
Jason Kidd made the NBA Finals with the Nets, because he was given better talent to work with than Marbury. He also made the Finals, because he played for the Nets around the time when the East was turning weak.
When Marbury was on the Nets, he had to compete against a very strong Eastern Conference.
Jason Kidd is now on the Mavericks, and what have they done that's so great, since he came there? Nothing.
#2- When Marbury was on the Phoenix Suns, he helped them make the playoffs and knocked down a game winning 3 pointer, to beat the Spurs in game 1.
Steve Nash was more successful than Marbury, because, like Kidd, he was given better talent to play with.
Now that Nash lost Shawn Marion, the Suns have not been the same.
Mike D'Antoni increased Joe Johnson's minutes, the Suns acquired Quentin Richardson when he was actually decent, and Amare Stoudamire was healthy(which he was not on Marbury's final year with the Suns).
On the Knicks, Marbury helped us make the playoffs in 03-04, and he helped the Knicks stay competitive, in 04-05.
In the 2005-2006 season, Isiah Thomas traded away all of our best players, and the team completely broke down, as a result.
Isiah Thomas traded Tim Thomas(solid 3 pt shooter), Kurt Thomas(solid veteran with rebounding, shooting, and shot blocking), and Nazr Mohammad(good defender) for Malik Rose(overrated scrub), Quentin Richardson(who now sucks) and Eddy Curry(who has always sucked).
Part of why the Knicks are off to the 6-4 start is because the Knicks had such an easy schedule, to start out. None of their 6 wins come against healthy .500 teams.
Another reason is that Eddy Curry is on the bench, and Quentin Richardson's minutes have been reduced despite his starting role. Curry and Richardson have been big reasons for the Knicks' failure, in past years, and their reduced role has allowed Wilson Chandler and Nate Robinson to flourish.

Nash and Kidd (who is clearly past his prime) made the players on those teams better. Credentials not shared by Stephony. To elevate the play of your team.
Consider K Mart's production comparatively with Marbury and Kidd and then now in Denver.
Tim Thomas and Q are on the same page.
Shaq trounced Mikey D's strategies
Curry in his good season eclipsed the absence of Nazr.
Kurt Thomas was a big loss. Good point, well made.
The tuition under the basketball IQs of Nash and Kidd are what led to the success of their team mates. Marbury has never come close to being anything of the sort.
A superstars salary and a losers resume. Even in the east's deepest slump he was never enough but cost too much.
In my case, I took a shot at you and metro because of how you act on this site, it has NOTHING to do with Marbury (I never brought him up in any post).
Simple fact is, someone disagrees with a member of Team Starbury about ANYTHING, they get jumped on by 3 or 4 different guys throwing around insults and acting like they are superman.
We are all knick fans here, and the reason I have barely posted over my 2 years on the site is the attitude of a lot of people here put me off (and probably put off a lot of other guys too), I used the site to keep up with Knicks news only.
I think the mistake you make in this thread is assuming people hate on you guys because of your opinion of Marbury, personally I couldn't care less about him anymore, he's no longer a player on this team. The real reason a lot of **** gets thrown on you guys is the way you treat people.
Please notice, I am not insulting anyone here, only trying to point out my observations on the situation. Over your combined 7300+ posts I'm sure you and metro have talked plenty of good stuff but you bring yourselves down by ****ting on anyone that disagrees with a "Starburian".
