Stephon Marbury is losing his mind

Let’s briefly reflect on the New York Knicks’ season:

- Knicks lose lots of game
- Larry Brown ages terribly due to feud with Stephon Marbury
- Marbury changes name to “Starbury”
- Knicks trade for Steve Francis because they don’t have enough guards and team players
- Knicks lose more games
- Brown goes to hospital for being old and coaching New York
- Knicks finish 23-59
-Isiah Thomas wins NBA exec of the year
- Knicks have no first-round draft picks

Fast forward to yesterday:

Starbury to the New York Post:

“I want to die a Knick. If I ever was to be cremated, I’d want my ashes sprinkled on top of the Garden.”

Some curious comments coming from the guy who hates his coach. The only rationale we can see here is that Starbury grew up in Coney Island, which makes him a native of New York and a huge thug. We’ll assume the cremated part was said while drunk.

More fine material from the guy who wants to be burnt on top of a basketball stadium:

“I hope that every player on this team comes back next season. I honestly mean that. Every player. I think we have a great team.”

Really, Stephon, great? We are sorta under the impression that a “great team” wins games. We could be terribly mistaken, but 23-59 doesn’t seem so great.

As for wanting every player to return: that just confirms our suspicion of Marbury being hammered. Now Stephon, riddle us this: assuming you do intend to win games next season, wouldn’t you maybe want some players that weren’t on a 23-59 team? Just a thought, but usually when you suck real badly, you want to shake things up.

We’ll go ahead and set the over/under of Starbury playing another game in New York at 10%. And we definitely are taking the under.
