Marbury is the better plamaker of the both, which sounds odd. They're both overpaid ball hogs. Franchise is more of a super undersized shooting guard. Marbury. They seriously have to ditch one of them.
Marbury is far better. he did have that good year for the Suns. then everyone got hurt the next year and Amare and Marions egos swelled. i feel bad for the guy and anyone that has been basnished to the basketball hell that is NY right now. Isiah has been sent to punish them.
i had my fill of Franchise when he played for Houston. horrible to watch. huge ballhog. played 2 on 5 when he felt like involving Cat Mobley. even that wasnt a given. he is like AI with half the talent, skills or basketballIQ. oh and a dash of migrane headaches.
Francis is the better teammate. I don't know why people keep saying that Steve Francis is a headcase because he was nothing like that here. Every game he played his a$$ off for Houston (while turning the ball over numerous times) and was well liked by his teammates and the whole city of houston. I think ever since mobley got traded away from him, he hasn't been the same player.
(better for killing en masse, like the careers of every Knick he's signed)
James Dolan-firing squad
(where Isiah will go at the end of this season)
(they decapatated that old bastard)
Both Francis(VAN,HOU,ORL,NYK) & Marbury(MIN,NJN,PHO,NYK) have been passed around the league like the village bicycle ever since they were drafted... I wouldn't start either of them if I was really James Colan.. I would trade them both away for some ROLE players and then start:
pg - Nate Robinson
sg - Jamal Crawford
sf - Jalen Rose
pf - Channing Frye
C - Eddy Curry
