NBA Power Rankings: Week 13
What’s Up With Marbury, and Where is He Going?
Total Pro Sports – As a die hard Knick fan, this story belittles my mind every day. Stephon Marbury and the Knicks organization have been working on a buyout on and off since the very beginning of the season, and most Knick fans have the same mindset as I do; buy him out, get it done, and get him out.
Marbury is asking for most of his contract, and after the Knicks offered $19 million of his $22.1 million, he countered with $21 million and the Knicks declined. Give him the money, get him off the payroll, and open up the roster spot for someone that is going to play. The guy doesn’t even travel with the team, what use is he!
It just ticks me off that the Knicks are paying him to sit home and do nothing. I would love to see the Knicks bring back Patrick Ewing Jr, a guy who brought energy to the team in the preseason and could fire up that bench along with Nate Robinson. I want to see Marbury be happy elsewhere, because he is terribly upset in New York.
Donnie Walsh, give him his money and let him go. Please comment on this story, and let me know what your opinion is on the situation.
