''Play Me or Waive Me''

Stephon Marbury has revealed he will no longer accept a buyout from the New York Knicks, and he wants the team to either waive him or play him, the New York Post is reporting.

"If they give me a uniform, I'm going to go out and play," Marbury told The Post yesterday. "It's their choice. I was getting ready to go back to practice and play [after Saturday's suspension]."

It was a departure from his comments made on Thanksgiving when he said, "This needs to end. The marriage is over."

Knicks' president Donnie Walsh said he expects Marbury buyout talks to resume following Monday's failed meetings. The sides are now $3 million apart after Marbury withdrew his offer to take $1 million less than his contract, which has him earning $21.9 million.

"The negotiations are over," Marbury said. "That's what they don't realize. I was wrong to try to buy my freedom. The money is off the table. I came to them with the million dollars. I didn't have to give them nothing."
Do or die with Marbury. Just play him...

There's one thing that's been bothering me. Where's Eddy Curry?

Okay, overall, Marbury is wrong, but I completely understand where he was coming from when he wouldn't play. You treat him like crap, essentially tell him there's no spot for him on the team and then when injuries come, you want him to jump up and say, "Yes'm!"? You're a player and you should play, but I get where he's coming from and totally don't hold any of this against him. The guy can still play.

I think that Marbury is getting a bad rap. I think they did him wrong and they should have just paid him.

Knicks are stupid; now Marbury looks more like a victim and is receiving sympathy from fans.
