Asked if he’s interested in reuniting in Boston with former Wolves teammates Kevin Garnett, during an appearance on Minnesota’s local TV broadcast of Friday night’s victory over Golden State, Marbury said: “Definitely.”
“When I left here [in 1999], it wasn’t about basketball,” Marbury said. “When I was younger, I had a different disposition as far as how I wanted to live life. Reuniting with Kevin is something that I would love. Going to Boston would be great for basketball and for fans to see Kevin and I reunited, like when we were younger. There is some hope, if I can get out of my contract and they’re interested in me. How can you deny the chance?” (Click here for full story or Watch video clip here)
I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I’m ready for this. We need his scoring and most importantly, playmaking off the bench. We’re all envisioning Steph jacking up bad shots, but the dude can pass. He’s averaging nearly 8 assists per game for his career. He will open up the court for Leon, Big Baby, Eddie and TA.
If Marbury really wants to be a Celtic, he needs to speed up the buyout of his contract. What’s another $5 million? Ease up on the demands and get here. He hasn’t played since the preseason and suited up for just 24 games last year. There will be rust.
