Stephon Marbury Weighs in on the Knicks

Starbury is watching the train-wreck in New York with an “I told you so” smirk on his mug. The NY Post caught up with him for his always interesting thoughts (read the whole thing; this is just a small sample of the delightful quotes): “Stephon Marbury took some parting shots at Knicks embattled coach Mike D’Antoni before flying to China Thursday to start his second season with Shanxi … Actually, Marbury sounded just like any other bitter Knicks fan disgusted by the team’s 3-7 start and five-game losing streak. Marbury claims to be just that – a diehard Knicks fan — though he has fallen out of favor with most supporters. ‘It’s just a matter of time,’ Marbury said. ‘That’s all I got to stay about D’Antoni’s situation. I don’t pay attention to his coaching. It hasn’t changed since he won 50 games or since all the how many games he’s lost here. If he had different pieces, he’s a very effective coach. But without any players that play with the realm of how he coaches the game, it will never be. It’s a matter of time,” Marbury added. ‘It’s a countdown now. He put a countdown on his head. Now (the fans) know we’re never going to win a championship like this.’”

    Is he wrong?


    nope. that system worked because of talented duo of Amere and Steve. There ain’t no Nash in MSG.

    Don’t forget to add up Shawn Marion who was probably the most versatile player to play for D’anthony’s system. Who knows maybe NASH can be part of this new look Knicks for a couple of season, and thats if they can’t lure in chris paul!

    ^I know this may sound like a stretch but Wilson Chandler is starting to fit that Marion mold.

    The writing is on the wall with Mike D. He’s a very disrespectful coach. Just yesterday he said after the Knicks started missing the presence of Ronny Turiaf’s defense that early on he didn’t think that Turiaf was that important. As a coach arent you supposed to motivate your players. Although Marbury has his issues they did him dirty by letting him play while his father was dying in the stands

    with all the crap everyone had to say about marbury, let me say this–He helped kg to the playoffs twice, went to the playoffs with amare, made the playoffs with the knicks,was in the playoffs with the celtics(and got offered a contract the next year) and probably woulda made the playoffs with the nets if the whole team wasnt in the hospital, oh yeah j kidd and s nash aint won it all and he always seems to be placed against them in conversations, antoni aint go nowhere w/out stevie nuff said

    He’s not wrong, but it’s ironic he’s talking about Defense. He never seemed to expend much energy on D. D’Antoni’s system relies on a great passing PG, a willingness to get up the court in a hurry and reliable shooters who know how to spread the floor. Not sure he has any of that right now.

    Starbury is watching the train-wreck in New York with vasoline oozing out of the corners of his mouth, Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” lightly playing in the background, with an “I told you so” smirk on his mug… (sorry, I just cant get over the fact of how badly he’s lost his noodle)..

    I always thought dantoni handled the marbury situation all wrong and absolutely without class. He disrespects his players and now is reaping what he sowed

    Niq, chandler is nice, but NOTHING like matrix.

  • john q public

    Marbury keeps it real and speaks the truth. Get rid of D’Antoni now while the season can be salvaged.
