Breaking: Stephon Marbury Is a Free Man

Posted by Rob Mahoney on February 24, 2009 under News | 7 Comments to Read

The Knicks and Stephon Marbury FINALLY came to terms on a buy-out, meaning he’ll soon meander his way to a playoff team.  The favorite is the Celtics, but one Mark Cuban happens to be best buds with Starbury.  I’m slightly concerned.

You know that if Cuban thinks this is good for the team, he’ll do everything he can to get it done.  You know that Marbury could contribute on the right team, and you should know that this team is not it.  The Mavs are still a team in search of its identity, and throwing Marbury into the mix jeopardizes what is already an incredibly delicate process.

At Hardwood Paroxysm, I kicked off the impending Marbury signing with a proactive event.  Rather than idly waiting and worrying, why can’t we all use the power of hope to solve our Starbury problems once and for all?

Let us work together, fellow Mavs fans of all walks of life, to save our team from Starbury!

  • Charles

    Amen brotha, amen!

  • Kevin

    We do need some scoring, and i’m not a J.J. Barea or a Kidd fan so i’m in favor of some Starbury. Not like we were gonna win the finals this year either way.

  • Charles

    Yea, we’re not gonna win the finals, so why not bring on a cancer like starbury and set back the development of our young guys for 3+ years?

    He might even drive Dirk out of town! How neat would that be?

  • Kevin

    Young guys? Bass and Barea? We don’t really have any good young guys and if he brings an attitude you cut him and his career is basically over, he knows that. Dirk’s not gonna freak out and leave over 3 months of Starbury.

  • Charles

    I guess you have never seen “Starbury” in action. I’ve followed the man for most of his career…you’re seriously underestimating his destructive abilities if you think he can’t bring down the Mavs in 3 months.
    The man has never won anywhere. He’s the reason why I stopped being a Knicks fan. I sincerely hope KG digs his heels into the guy when he signs in Boston.

    And why doesn’t Bass and Barea fit the “good young guys” criteria? They’re talented and they work hard, they’re the very definition of youth and potential.

  • Kevin

    All I’m saying is it’s not like we have any top prospects he can mess up (if we still had Harris I might be worried about him learning Marbury’s habits, and yes I’ve seen him in action since his Minnesota days). We have 3 reliable scorers and one of them has a broken hand. We’re 9-17 I believe against teams with winning records this year, clearly not championship material. So why not try something that if it doesn’t work you can quickly cut ties with him. If he’s going 1 on 5 down a ton down the stretch of a close game or complaining about minutes or dogging it in practice you waive him and the problem is solved.

  • Charles

    Ehh, dead argument now…he’s signing with BOS (TY Jesus!)

    I think that’s the only environment where he can thrive, I’m pretty sure KG will be more inclined and willing to kick his ass now that he has a title to defend.
