Default Marbury leaving Knicks in two years to play in Italy.....

Quote:
This will be my 12th season in the league. When my contract is up in two years, I want to go play overseas in Italy and retire over there. Berman has the story in today's Post, but I'd like to explain it further.

During the Olympics, David Stern told us about how big basketball was becoming around the world. He was right. Now I want to make it even bigger for the United States.

For my 14th pro season, I want to go when I can still go hard and give the people what they want. I'm looking at how David Beckham is getting love for coming here. He's 32. I'll be 32 at the end of my Knicks' contract. Imagine if someone told him not to follow his heart to play soccer in the U.S.

I want to do the same thing for basketball and spread the Starbury Movement so people all around the world can benefit. I want to make things affordable for everybody.

Don't get this twisted. I love playing in New York more than anything and I am playing to win a championship in these next two seasons and go out on the highest note.


In a related story, Italy has just announced they are not allowing American players to play in their league.

He's signed to a contract right now.

And what does playing or looking like beckham have to do with anything? His beckham point was playing on another continent, not comparing his look or style

beckham is a global icon, people who never watched a soccer game in their life know who he is. Marbury is just a fool from coney island that can't even get his team into the playoffs. His wife won't get a TV show and he won't be on the cover of any italian papers.

As a knicks fan i hope he leaves because that means that isiah won't ovepay him.

Gotcha.

Every time it looks like the Knicks have a shot to even think about eventually going under the salary cap, they trade for someone with a big, long contract. I think I just assume it'll never, ever happen

i hate to see marbury go but hes right he should make it affordable for the rest of the world but he can do that by selling his product across seas intead of playing there and still spread the movement of his sneakers

Might as well send Kobe Bryant to Italy to teach Marbury how to speak Italian...



He'll probably return after he gets bored scoring 50 a night in the Italian club(s).

It is his fault to some degree. He's their leader, he's the floor general. He's part of that "team" chemistry.

He's the reflection of the team's poor chemistry.
