I thought the article said Marbury got 1.3M? Of course nobody is going to pay him high dollar, but haterofhaters was saying that he wasn't going to get another chance if he proved a chemistry problem on the Celtcs. That's absurd, given the history of sports.

Marbury is what? 33? He wasn't going to get 20 mil at age 33 after not playing for what? Over a year?

Yes, that is exactly what i'm suggesting. If Stephon Marbury doesn't find a way to gel and be cohesive with the defending champion Celtics, people are going to look at that and say "hey, this guy might have some talent, but I don't need him ****ing up our team chemistry so i'll pass." Even now he only had a few teams interested in him, and they considered it a risk taking him on.

To summarize, it looks like Celtics fans are cautiously optimistic about Marbury while all other fans (and especially contender's fans) are very concerned about the impact on team chemistry

i mean next year, do you think marbury would come back for a small salary to be a role player or would he just stay home. of course this year he'd come back, he's actually getting 20 million this year, not the small amount.

if things worked out well for the celtics maybe, but i wonder how appealing a 2 million a year bench role is for marbury long term.

Easy deal.

It's a win and win situation for the Celtics; they are a great team without Marbury, and he could possibly make them a better team. He will be coming off the bench no doubt about that, however if he plays like the old Marbury, he could possibly start. I know that is a long shot, but it is worth mentioning.

Nice post b the OP. It sounds like the C's might have a great catch in this current version of Marbury. I think I might watch more of their games just to see how they are doing.

He wouldn't start even if he was averaging 20PPG if he was able to start. His job will be to provide scoring off the bench which is what they need. Him driving to the lane and kicking it out to house fits well on paper at least.

LOL at people saying he might start at some point. Let's see...

Aging former superstar who has been a malcontent his whole career vs. young stud point guard who suffered from confidence problems at times.

Let's start Marbury!!!

Ahh, unfortunately you don't run the celtics because that would be great.

It's not up to Marbury. He'll be offered contract based on how well he plays. If he plays like a good bench player the caliber of Stackhouse the year Dallas went to the Finals, or Grant Hill now, he'll probably be offered a decent contract.

The idea that he won't be given a chance to play because of his off court antics makes me laugh. Talent is always more valued than chemistry in sports. Head cases with talent can always get a job.

Default Re: Marbury is officially a Celtic.

To be honest, you know who should have signed Marbury? The Knicks.

Think about it. After the Knicks let him out of his contract, Walsh should have thought about resigning him. Don't the Knicks need help at the guard positions? Walsh probably could have just signed him to the veterans minimum. Then, if he starts to cause problems, Walsh could have just cut him because of his small contract. Very little risk.

I don't know, seems like a missed opportunity for Walsh and the Knicks. You would think if they resigned Marbury, Marbury would have something to prove......




Yes, it's a joke.

I'm sick of those lame worms of "experts" talking their philosophy bullish "expertise" about the cancer that Steph is and bla bla bla.

Those guys I swear man, I would shoot em.


WHO the hell is Marbury to disrupt Celtics chemistry?

If he makes A MOVE that doesn't comply with Rivers' plan - he is BENCHED and after the game KG will probably stuff him in the trunk and drive him around town and drop him off a cliff.

But all these idiots writing **** like "Marbury will be a selfish player, he's gonna screw up Celtics' chemistry"

Gimme a break.

They may get a job, but at significantly less that what their talent level suggests they should be making.
