    Disagree.

    If they trade him, great.

    If they can't get value for him, let him rot.

    Why pay him 20 mil to play for another team and HURT your team.

    You'd rather they pay him to play against our team and hurt our chances against whichever team he joins?

    Donnie needs him he knows it
    Steph is a backcourt guard who will add depth to the inconsistent Duhon and Robinson duo. What can we expect from Duhon everynight another inconcistent day, so we could keep him but, getting him back is something Donnie will never do because of Mikey D

    Whats the rush? Let that clown rot. He cannot help us win (fact, history as prove) and he's tried to mock the organization instead of trying to settle a buyout and keep quiet. F him.

    because then you have to hear more talk, articles, and it makes the Knicks Organization look like the bad guy here....

    future players will have to wonder if they are in the same situation the knicks won't be willing to work things out when they have a tuff contract situation...

    the so called "new knicks" should want to cut ties with the past so that the present demands attention...

    right now every game the knicks lose make a reporter want to write about marbury because the team is nothing to write about...

    at least if the knicks had someone else on the team that did something worthwhile there could be some positives...

    you know your players stink when they write more about the coach then the team...

    so my Walsh not getting him gone by the deadline proves 3 things....

    1. Dolan still runs the Knicks, not Walsh

    2. The Knicks have to take on alot of the blame from last 2 seasons

    3. The future isn't more important than now


    ...one

    I realize that Marbury still has a lot of fans, but I think the Knicks are going to continue to play hardball with him. There is absolutely no upside for the Knicks to release him unless they get a big discount in the buyout and save some money.

    Why pay him full price or close and then watch him play for one of the teams you are going to have to face later?

    That would be stupid.

    In the mean time, they will continue to try to trade him even though that's not very likely.

    I think it would be wrong of Donnie not to buy Marbury out at the deadline if he cant trade him. Its the same way with Jamaal Tinsley, its unfair to not buy these players out. If a player chooses not to play for a team then thats different. Both Marbury and Tinsley were ready to play at the beginning of the season but unfortunately for Marbury hes a victim of betrayal. I dont know all the details on Tinsleys situation.

    I know some of you are already gonna say "They asked him to play and he said no." Thats after they betrayed him. How would you feel if you worked very hard all summer long, you were excited about the upcoming season. Opening game, you've accepted a role off the bench. All you wanna do is help your team win. It turns out that your coach and everyone on the team knows that your not gonna play. You sit there on the bench waiting to play, but you never get called into the game while the entire team already knew this was going to happen. Thats betrayal, although i do think Marbury should have played when the opppertunity was given later in the season, I dont blame him for saying no. Mike D'antoni should have confronted Marbury before the season and told him face to face instead of tellin Q-Rich, who told everyone else on the team. And now they wont buy him out? Theres nothing right about this....Free Marbury

    Donnie Walsh needs to buy out Marbury. D'Antoni already said he's not going to use him; why keep a guy on your team that you are not going to use? It's funny how all the haterburys want Starbury to stay on the Knicks. I think the haterburys are afraid that if Marbury leaves the Knicks, he will end up going to a contender and possibly win a championship. Well, even if the Knicks keep him, he can still sign with a contender for the veteran's minimum. Too bad, haterburys. Marbury is going to go to a championship contender, whether you like it or not. Not buying him out, or trading him to a crappy team will just mean he'll go to a contender next year, instead of this year.

    You are thinking in terms of what's "fair" or what's in Marbury's best interests. The Knicks are thinking in terms of business and what's best for them.

    Negative! I think this is more out of Donnie control than we think

    If Steph is still a Knick after the deadline its because a combination of two things. 1.Steph is still demanding all his money (hell I would too!) 2.Dolan doesnt want him going to a winning team in our conference.

    I think the report of Steph going to Boston may have done more harm than good for Steph. Dolan not Donnie Walsh has to sign off on this, Donnie has to broker the deal, but it needs the signature of one man. So no way Dolan lets Steph earn a full year's salary on his shareholders just to go win a Title with a Conference team. Truthfully I don't think Donnie Walsh cares where Steph ends up, and would probably like to put this thing to rest if he couldnt trade Steph at the deadline.

    Anyone need an indication of Dolan's spitefullness just look at what he did to Spree when he was here.

    Do whats best for the Knicks, and that is not adding another former allstar player into the playing pool in their own division.

    All the retards on here bragging like hes going to championship contender just shows what they are. Marbury fans. They don't give a **** about the Knicks.

    And the fact that you want Marbury to stay on the Knicks shows that you don't care about the Knicks signing a free agent center this year. The Knicks have 15 roster spots, with Marbury. Without him, they could sign a center that they desperately need.

    Stay mad, haterbury.

    They already have a free spot and haven't done anything with it. Fill that first.

    Also the fact that they are only playing 7 players just shows that they can easily ditch Rose or Roberson, pay less to get rid of them for the spot if they end up needing it, and avoid having to play Stephon.

    Stay dumb, Team Fagbury

    Too bad, Tunerfaqqot. Donnie Walsh isn't stupid enough to trade for your lover, Mardy Collins. And Anthony Roberson's about to get waived, too.
