STEPHON MARBURY: DESTROYER OF NBA FRANCHISES AND SHOE COMPANIES

website has come up with “Mission All-Starbury.” They want chaos and are urging fans to elect New York Knicks guard Stephon Marbury as a starter in this year’s NBA All-Star game. This despite the fact that Marbury hasb’t played one second for New York this year and likely never will again.

One question: How in the hell is Stephon Marbury on this year’s official NBA All-Star ballot?

Stephon Marbury is a disgrace. Marbury is such a loser that the Knicks are apparently willing to pay him $22 million this season NOT to play basketball for them.

Despite being a two-time NBA All-Star, it can be argued that the exiled Knicks guard is the biggest loser in NBA history. If you think that’s hyperbole look at the record. The Minnesota Timberwolves picked Marbury with the fourth pick in the 1996 NBA draft out of Georgia Tech. Despite being teamed with future Hall-of-Famer and eventual NBA champion Kevin Garnett, the T-Wolves never won a playoff game.

Despite Minnesota paying him the maximum amount allowed under the CBA, Marbury whined about his contract and eventually got traded to the New Nersey Nets. While Minnesota eventually won a division title and their first playoff series in franchise history after his departure, the Nets under Marbury were terrible. In his two full seasons in New Jersey the Nets went 31-51 and 26-56. Amazingly, just by trading Marbury, the Nets instantly improved 26 games in the standings and twice made it to the NBA Finals.

Marbury’s next stop was Phoenix. With Marbury starting the year as the Suns point guard, the team went 29-53. He was replaced by Steve Nash. The NEXT YEAR Phoenix went 62-20 and made it to the Western Conference Finals. Nash won two MVP awards as Marbury’s replacement.

Meanwhile Marbury went to his hometown Knicks with much fanfare. There he turned Isiah Thomas from one of the hottest young NBA executives who was on the cover of Forbes magazine into a pathetic, unemployable joke who will never work again and wanted to kill himself.

The Knicks coach this season is Mike D’Antoni. He was able to witness Marbury’s cancerous effect on a team firsthand while he was in Phoenix. One of D’Antoni’s first decisions as Knicks coach was to bench Marbury. Forever. The effects have been amazing. Just by NOT PLAYING MARBURY the Knicks have improved considerably. Last year with Marbury the Knicks were 29-53. This season New York is playing .667 ball and are on pace to win 54 games. That may not last, but think about this: the three teams that have traded Stephon Marbury have improved an average of 28 wins per season AFTER trading Stephon Marbury.

That means the single best thing you can do to improve your franchise in NBA history is to get rid of Stephon Marbury. That makes him the biggest loser in NBA history.
