A-Rod is more of a headcase then Marbury ever was, at least Marbury has hit some big shots. But A-rod is so talented, that Girardi would never sit him. Thats just the way it works. Im sure theres players on the Yankees that dont like A-rod, as a Yankees fan I dont like him. I think i remember hearing somewhere that in Joe Torre's book, he was making fun of the way a-rod talks to Jeter like hes a female fan. Alot of good and bad teams have had tension in the locker room or club house, but on the court its strictly business. When you have a losing team, theres gonna be more problems. Thats normal. If we were winning, people wouldnt pay as much attention to this. Theres problems in Houston...I have heard that a couple of players dont like McGrady. I think Yao Ming even said something about him always being injured, but they still have had winning records.
Some of Michael Jordan's teammates hated him so I have no problem with a player leading my team that has problems with a couple of his teammates. But Marbury would have only been leading us for one year, and it would have been nice to see him earn some of the money hes recieved over the past couple of years. Marbury has been made the scapegoat here in New York by Isiah Thomas, and he just had some bad luck with Mike D'antoni. Regardless of if other posters on this site agree or disagree, I and some other posters have made strong cases for this and so has the writer of the article that Metro posted. Our point of view has enough evidence for it to be a respected opinion. Theres some dirt you can dig up on him too, but for the most part...he hasnt really been that bad since the beginning of the 2006 season. The only thing he did that was stupid, that im 100% sure about, was the way he behaved at the time of the sexual harassment trial. He did behave immature, and I think he realizes that. But other then that...I dont see any other facts that can fully be held against him.
