April 1 was almost 6 months ago.
Greenie: Disagree. I think Tatum is going to be better than KP. I don't know about DSjr.

The only thing that is certain is that Marbury is in better shape than Stevie Franchise. Not hard since Wingo probably has less wear and tear on his body (and a more youthful liver) than Francis.

Not sure about that but yeah at least I think folks are not going to be pleasantly surprised by Sessions.

It boggles my mind how some fans can even like Crackbury. He was a complete bust and embarrassment here!

I've been clamoring for his return for a long time. He deserved a coach that believed in him. Every coach tried to change his game. Marbury was a scoring pg when it wasn't fashionable to be one and he paid the price. I loved his game, and I'm not going to fault him for not being Jason Kidd.

This is so true. Haven't posted in a bit but had to say this. Had Dantoni not benched Marbury I have no doubt he would of had a great year that year. Dude was in shape! Marbury definitely got a bad rap in the NBA and his success in China sort of proves it to an extent. Dude had HOF potential. Had he got drafted by the lakers or celtics who knows.

Marbury got caught in the same trap Anthony got caught in. Wanting so badly to play for your home town team that you don't realize that it's so much pressure and so much expectations that...especially at the time they pushed their way here...was probably setting yourself up for failure. Both guys came at a time when the franchise was in dire need of a savior. Both guys got tagged as the savior. Both guys didn't have the game to be saviors for the Knicks. Marbury got run out of town and Anthony is in the process of getting run out. Marbury couldn't be Kidd or Nash (or Magic or some other great PG) just as Anthony couldn't be Lebron (or Kobe or MJ).

This is also very accurate. Having said that I always wondered what happens to Marbury had he never left phoenix. I mean marbury easily could have thrown lobs and bounce passes to AMARE as well. Instead he had to throw those same passes to Malike Rose and Jackie Butler.

I cant help be root for Marbury. I dont know what he has left in the tank, but i'd love to see the Knicks pay attention to him at least. If he could come in and give us a few minutes a game as a back up and coach the young guys even that would be good. I dont think he's a headcase, I think he's matured and just loves the Knicks. Its too bad, I thought he was a GREAT talent that just ran into alot of unfortunate situations.

He should be in the BIG3 league. At least he'll get the notoriety there.

We should give him a shot. Not like we should be trying to win anything this year anyway.
