His last two seasons with the Knicks there was something clearly wrong with his right ankle / knee with it being much worse last year. Part of what would go wrong with him is he mopes when he's not healthy and he'd play 10 good games then start to get limited and it would spiral. I guess we'll know soon if that was an isolated injury that wouldn't heal or deterioration due to age.

Default Re: Marbury is officially a Celtic.

The only thing i don't like what he said is that the players police themselves, not the coaches. He's a career malcontent who behaves everywhere he goes, and he's happy to move to an enviorment that has less coaches watching him. FIne, sure...

waiting for the first celtic fan to say something bad about the knicks as if his whole career screwups are there fault - he misbehaved in minnesota, new jersey and phoenix too.

Eh, I'm calling hogwash on his comments until we see a handful of games, INCLUDING 1-2 against contending teams.

That said, Marbury would definitely have to earn that kind of trust.

Yeah, right.

As long as GM's believe he still has talent he'll get a job. It's a historical given. Look at the Dallas Cowboys, Latrell Sprewell, Michael Vick (the 49ers have already been rumored to be interested), etc.

I was bored and I thought Starbury's logo was cool. So I put it inside the Celtics cloverleaf. So to anyone who likes Starbury and who are Celtics fans and like the arrival of Starbury here's an avatar out of my boredom even though I'm a Cavs fan who is a photoshop noob...

Actually look at Latrell Sprewell. Couldn't you see the situation simlar with Marbury, of cousre a ton of teams would give him a chance, but maybe ar 2-3 a year rather than the 20 he got. I could easily see him not playing. He's not one of these players (as far as i know) who spent all his money.

I was actually about to mention Latrell Sprewell ironically. How many teams were jumping at the opportunity to sign him? He never officially retired, you do know that right?

Yes, Casell refusing to pass at times and looking like an old man worked really well with extended minutes, much better than Rondo looks now. I'm all for Marbury getting as many of Rondos' minutes as possible. Hell, bench Rondo and start Marbury.

of course i absolutely 100% don't want the celtics to win a title...

it's cause of the salary he wants. he gets small money inquiries, and he refuses to play for that money. it's not a case that teams wouldn't sign him.

Default Re: Marbury is officially a Celtic.

This could be really good news. Or really bad news for the Celtics.

Naturally this gives the C's a huge edge when it comes to 2nd units on the floor. Marbury brings that instant offense and defense (stop laughing!!) to the C's. Hopefully Marbury will be happy with his minutes.

Good luck, Celtics.

I wonder if it is too late to get on the Celtics bandwagon? Oh never mind. One day my Timberwolves will be back in the playoffs.....I hope.
