nope, i dont buy it.
i hate this trade if im a celts fan.
theres no need for it at the current moment.
they are the best team (record wise) in the league.
its not broken, not even close to broken... why try and tinker?
ugo, you hit this one on the nose "he has so much to prove" and that is the main reason i would be against this as a celts fan.
they dont need a guy coming there with allstar asperations. they dont need a guy trying to score 20 a game, or trying to prove his doubters wrong.
Marbury isnt dumb, he wont ever try to hurt the chemistry, in fact, he'll probably be a lockerroom jesus. but on the court, he doesnt know how to turn it down a notch. he's played his whole life scoring points and making big shots. He wont even realize that he's hogging or taking shots away from his teamates.
on the court, and off the court, Marbury isnt the type of player who makes a team better. he hast done it his whole career, i dont see it happening in this case either. on any other team its a great move.... on Boston - its horrible.
