While I believe that I have a better shot of playing for the Celtics than Stephon Marbury, the NY Post continues to list Boston as a potential home for the NBA’s craziest point guard.
Marbury, who could wind up in Miami, Boston, San Antonio or the Clippers, said he has no desire to work out a settlement.
“There wouldn’t be no negotiation,” Marbury said. “They’re going to give me all my money. … If they want to waive me and give me all my money, fine. If not, I’ll try to help this organization win the championship. They told me to come to camp in the best shape of my life and I did that. But I don’t want to be in a place I’m not wanted.”
You gotta love Marbury’s negotiating skills. “They’re going to give me all my money.” How about taking half of the $21 milion owed this season, and get the hell out of New York? That team isn’t going anywhere for years. Here’s some advice: Take the buyout, sign a one-year deal for the veteran minimum on a contending team, re-shape your image and then hit the jackpot in free-agency. Wait…that makes too much sense for Stephon.
