Give Steph a Break

Give Steph a Break

Out of all the players that stunk up the Worlds Most Famous Arena last year Stephon Marbury receives the most criticism. Maybe its because he was brought to be the possible "savior" of a franchise in a downwards spiral. Maybe its because on former teams he’s asked to be traded a few times. Maybe he should have stayed in Minnesota. Maybe its because when times are bad he gets on his teammates a little to hard, yelling at them on the court for their stupid mistakes. Or maybe its because he’s a die hard Knick fan like me and you just dying at the fact that the Knicks just sucked last year. However, can you really blame Steph? Larry Brown his coach last year, did nothing but single him out THROUGH THE MEDIA all last season, as the reason for their losing. Maybe it was because Marbury thought he should play more of an Iverson role with the team, who knows. Marbury kept his mouth shut through the first couple of months, until like any of us after being singled out finally said F**k it, who are you? You don’t know me? So Steph lashed back at Brown, through the media, and the two went back and forth in the papers like Riley and Phil Jackson used to do back in the 90s with the Knicks/Bulls rivalry(the only difference with that is that they where on DIFFERENT TEAMS!!!). This was of course counter productive but Mr. Marbury is only human and a prideful one at that. The end result the Knicks suffering a terrible season, #3 having the worst statistical season of his career, and Larry Brown out after sabotaging the season, one of the reasons being that he singled out his best player. So now, with new coach that is on his side, same players with better chemistry, and with two point guards in the backcourt, Steph and the Knicks will muster up more wins. All I’m saying is give Stephon Marbury a break, he said he wants his "ashes sprinkled on Madison Square Garden" when he dies so he is obviously dedicated to winning. Bringing a Championship home to the Garden eventually is what he has always dreamed of……….so stay tuned.

word.....

I agree %100.......

Check the record....without Stephon.....we were a worst team....

Just because Marbury is our most talented player.......it doesn't mean it's his fault we were bad(it can actually mean just the opposite....our best player should be the last one to blame)....

No offense but after 10 yrs. giving Mr.Stephon Marbury the misunderstood rap she done and over with. Starting to pilot talkshows in his 30's is a big sign of him wanting to retire from the game of basketball, now news coming out of him missing preseason games associated w/ him needing cortizone shots to relieve the pain is the first sign of an athlete wearing down and admiting it to the media is a sign telling his teammates the end is near in Starbury's basketball life, if you've looked at his preseason games you would know that.

I respect your opinion but listen Stephon Marbury is not retiring anytime soon he is not Tiki Barber........Also if you think that Steph is the only one taking cortizone shots in the NBA and professional sports then you are about as clueless as the OJ Jury......Also if you have ever watched basketball before you would know that star players with little injuries in the preseason sit out just in case they hurt it more if u watched last nights preseason game against Philly u would know this with Iverson and Dalembart sitting out......
