I think ur thinkin about this all wrong.
If the Spurs lose a lot of games, who gets the blame? Duncan
Houston? Mcgrady and Yao
Most of the time the highest paid player (ESPECIALLY A PG) will get blamed for loses. It's not our fault but its the truth.
The knicks lose because we turn the ball over, have horrible perimeter D, and have a problem controlling the tempo of the game.
Marbury gives up a lot of jump shots and penetration because he goes AROUND picks rather then IN FRONT of them. He basically asks the pg to drill a jump shot or take him off the dribble.
Combo of that AND he can't speak to the press and he isn't a educated guy, banged an intern, not willing to take a pay cut to win(minny), fight with teammates(Q, Van Horn, Kurt Thomas). **** i wouldnt wanna root for him now.
The thing i do like is... He loves the knicks and he wants to win. He has a thick skin. AND hes given some form of sacrifice to his game for the team (first time in his 10 year carreer).
I blame him and Zeke for us sucking so much.
