okay Da KO King, Marbury was benignly saying he just wanted to try his best to be the best point guard and that he is merely a victim of a character assassination. when he said "im the best point guard in the NBA" he really meant to say "I am just trying to be the best point guard in the NBA"

so this is all just one big misunderstanding because one loyal Knicks fan just can't stand to see any vitriol directed to his team captain.

Has nothing to do with Marbury being a Knick. I defend pretty much anyone I think is getting unfairly dogpiled with negativity. I've done it for Shawn Marion, Kobe Bryant, and a few others in the past.

It has to do with having enough sense to pay attention to the entire comment and not base an opinion on the first sentence alone.

I think I'm the best point guard in the NBA. I need to in order to succeed. These guys are too good to approach it any other way.

How does that reads as someone disrespecting other players and being an ego-maniac (not saying you are implying that but it has been said about Marbury in the past)?

if it's not arrogant, then Marbury simply should have worded it differently because it really sounds like a boast, especially the arrogant way he talks (not intentional. just the standard drawl from the urban areas)

why i hate the knicks:

1. their fans on this board... you may not see any homerism today, but you haven't been around long enough.

2. it's NY. they think they're the biggest and best at everything, everyone loves proving them wrong.

3. the players on the team... instead of listing the players i dislike on the knicks, it will be much quicker to list the players i do like: balkman, lee, collins, fred jones... thats it.

4. the payroll. believe it or not, many people don't respect the idea of throwing money at problems. and if that IS the way you go about doing business... atleast do it right. mavs had one of the highest payrolls in the league for a number of years, paying a lot of luxury tax $$$... but atleast they were a good team that was in the playoffs.

5. peter griffin said so

"Yankees suck, Knicks suck, Mets suck."

That's pretty much it for me, only I actually love making jokes with (4) and switch (3) for

"Every trade rumor has to include the Knicks, mostly the delusional ones. It's almost like NYK fans actually believe the NBA spins around them, which obviously gets me tired of hearing about them"

Personally I don't hate the Knicks, but I sure get tired of hearing of them.

I like the Knicks, and hope they get back to respectability. But again, the stupid moves they make, makes it hard to take them seriously and makes it easy to talk sh*t about them.

I like all of their players, even like Isiah. I find no reason to hate Marbury because he's losing his mind. But they need to get it together.

Seriously how can anybody hate the Knicks? they should love them to death if i were you.

1. they have the most deadliest weapon on the low post - Eddy Curry
2. One of the best PG of all-time, only player with career average of 20/8, besides Oscar Robertson.
3. They just acquired Randolph which would be a nightmare for most eastern teams.
4. Zeke is just a genius drafting and he improved the team going from 23 to 33 once he took over the coaching duty.
5. Their payroll is horrendous, and each team got richer i think 1.9 million coz the knicks were 40+million over tux tax. So instead of hating the knicks ya should be gratefull your team is 1.9 million richer thanks to the Knicks
