Flip Saunders on the Marbury Experiment in Beantown

by February 27, 2009

Steph’s old coach thinks it’ll work out just fine: “Unlike most, Saunders trusts Marbury’s motivation – on the floor, anyway. ‘Anything he does in a game is strictly to win,’ Saunders said. ‘Your greatest fear if you’re on the other team is his desire to win. His greatest strength can also be what you worry about, though. He wants to win so much that he thinks he can do it on his own. He wants to win more than anything, and he’ll do whatever that takes. But Doc (Rivers) will be able to control this, I think…I think (Marbury) will be patient. Doc will play who he has to play, and (Marbury) will go along with it.'”
