Marbury a Wizard?
Stephon Marbury's up and down (and down some more) playoff run with the Boston Celtics probably won't result in a lucrative contract next season but there is one team that could have interest in the former Knicks guard.
Marbury, according to a source, was contacting Flip Saunders almost on a daily basis during the postseason and there is a chance that Marbury could be reunited with his first professional coach (okay, second after Bobby Cremins) next season.
Saunders is now the head coach of the Washington Wizards and would strongly considering adding Marbury to the roster if there is a vacancy. The biggest hurdle for Marbury is that Mike James and Javaris Crittenton are both under contract.
Ernie Grunfeld was a big Marbury fan when Ernie ran the Knicks. He tried to get him the year that Marbury was traded to the Nets. Instead of Marbury the Knicks made a deal the same day for Mirsad Turkcan.
Cuttino Mobley admitted in an ESPN interview on "Outside The Lines" that he knew he had a life threatening heart condition when he entered the NBA. In fact, Mobley signed a medical waiver with the Rockets, Magic and Kings saying that he wouldn't hold them liable in case he died while playing basketball.
After Mobley was traded to the Knicks in November he decided to retire after meeting with a heart specialist. In fact, some media outlets credited the Knicks medical staff with saving Mobley's life.
How would you wizard fans like this....i really wouldnt wanna see him play here but i can see why they would b/c he knows the offence
I don't think Marbury would be a good pickup. We need a young point with a good upside
^^^ i couldnt agree more
a healthy arenas, jamison, and butler wouldn't hurt either haha
