Cool Wiretap: Marbury "sits out season" and goes on a rant

More like nobody wants his deranged ass. What a douche!

Quote:
Stephon Marbury has decided not to play in the NBA this season and will instead focus on business opportunities while hoping to return in 2010-11.
"I'm resting, doing what Michael Jordan did, enjoy life, do things I haven't done in 16 years, keep building my empire," Marbury said.

Marbury also is not fond of the direction of the Knicks.
"This is atrocious. Guys coming down court, just raising up 3-pointers from anywhere. The coaching is horrible. What kind of coaching is this?

"LeBron isn't coming to a rebuilding team," Marbury said. "Why would he come to a rebuilding team? It makes no sense. Is this franchise built to win a championship or to make money?"

LOL.

Also, why would anyone sign Marbury next year. Scrubs won't be signed next year with people getting Max dollars next season. Sorry Marbury but just sit your ass down. Your not gonna play another NBA game

What really kills me is he said "is NY in it for a championship or for money?" and he also says that he couldn't play in Boston for "that money". I guess he's not in it to win a championship. Well, now he's not in it at all. My guess is he'll be hoping to land with a team in February. Good luck, with your vaseline indorsement Starburry! lol

He is a douche but not for what he said here. I agree with some of it.

Somebody will invite him to camp and he will make that team. Look at all the chances Vin Baker got and he was an alcoholic and drug addict who played wasted at times.

Yes and no. Smart was the Lebron comment. But asking if NY is after money or Championship is beyond hypocritical, after he just said in the article that he wasn't gonna get enough money from Boston to play, which oh btw is a championship contender. Although i think most people know Boston likely didn't want him back and he's just trying save face.

lol @Marbury. He's not playing because no one is interested in him right now. His comments make him sound bitter, however there is some truth to his comments.

Why do you think that? Wasn't he making over $20M/yr at one point? The guy has more money than he knows what to do with and unlike some other high payed players he invested some of his into successful business ventures. If he comes back it will be for ball, not money and if he did need money, which I'm pretty sure he doesn't, would it not be better thinking to take what you can get instead of settling for nothing?

He stated that he didn't go to Boston because the money wasn't good enough. Can't get more clear then that. Even though i doubt he got an offer at all.

Maybe he didn't want to go to Boston because he still feels he could contribute, therefore taking a pay cut would accept the fact that he doesn't have it anymore. For a guy who was a former all-star and a top tier PG, you gotta think that what he was still affects who he thinks he is. Happens all the time. Hell, look at MJ at the end of his career. He thought he was still the best player in the game, but it passed him by a long time ago.

So do I find it hypocritical? No. He's speaking here as a fan of the Knicks (something he always he said he was). And you know what? He's right. It seems that Dolan et al. don't really care, but are banking on 2010 only to build a team. Team are built over a few seasons, not one and really they have 1-2 pieces right now. If I were a fan of the Knicks, I'd be pissed too.

The Knicks right now look like they have five Marburys on the court at all times.

This thread needs to be bumped.

Im watching a bit of BOS/NY and the way the Knicks play is disgusting. Marbury is 100% right on this one, they just come up the court and look for the first NEAR available 3. Its not like Dantoni ball with the Suns where Nash CREATED open shots, the Knicks play like Raptors old when WE sucked and just pass it around the perimeter without any penetration and then someone decides to jack it up. Its really disgusting to watch. Theyve taken 30 3s and theres 3 mins left in the 3rd. And its nothing like ORL and PHX that create OPEN 3s. Its a disgrace to the game the way they play.
