Even as a Nets fan it’s a shame to see someone as talented as Marbury go unutilized. Hate on him all you want, dude can ball. He may have a temper, he has been known to scapegoat his team members, and has a history of being a problem in the locker room. However it’s frustrating to see someone as talented as the lil’ homey, for some reason, not get it together.
I doubt he’ll still be on the Knicks by the end of this season to be safe. He’ll probably be gone way before the trade deadline if they can negotiate a deal. The thing is, where the hell would he go?
He could go to Golden State to fit their “I just wanna score” offense but they’d have to deal Harrington or Stephen Jackson and some picks to make up the monetary disparity. Then again that would be pretty dumb considering they’d lose at least one of their top scorers in a system that works well for them. It would basically lose the point of them playing that Nelly ball. He’d probably end up on a bottom feeder like Charlotte or Oklahoma since they have loads of money and nothing to lose (well Charlotte still has JRich’s $12 but that’s it.)
He’s in the final year of his contract and is owed about $21 Millies this season. So at any rate it doesn’t matter where he ends up. I can’t see him making that much dough again this summer.
In other news. I’m SO happy I stumbled on this video again. This interview with Bruce Beck is CLASSIC. So many quotables. Just watch haha.
