Default Stephon Marbury says he has a deal with the Celtics.

Marbury says he's got a verbal deal with Celtics,
report says

Posted by jshabe January 26, 2009 09:50AM

Stephon Marbury is annoyed at the New York Knicks for standing in the way of his handshake deal with the Celtics, according to this report on NYPost.com. Steph says the Knicks are being petty, playing "kids games."

From the report:

"I know I'll be able to sign with two teams," Marbury told The Post.

"The question to be asked to the Knicks is: Are they fearful for me playing for another Eastern Conference team? My thing is, they shouldn't be fearful. They're trying to get under the cap for 2010. They shouldn't be worried about me. You had guys saying I was a distraction, I'm a cancer. If I'm all those things, wouldn't you want me to go to another team?"

Default Stephon Marbury Says He's Boston Bound

Stephon Marbury Says He's Boston Bound

The World Famous LayupDrill Rumor Mill
1/26/09

Stephon Marbury’s frustration has reached a boiling point. The former point guard of the New York Knicks reached out to the NY Post Sunday and stated that the Knicks are refusing to come to terms on a buyout because they know he has a verbal agreement in place with the Celtics.

Marbury went on to say that “It’s got to be personal,” and if he was that much of a cancer as they said he was earlier this year, “wouldn’t you want me to go to another team?” Celtics officials cannot comment or confirm any remark Marbury makes regarding a contract offer due to potential tampering charges that the league offices could charge Boston with. Stay tuned….

This is like a soap opera. Some Greece team wanted him too. I'd be nice to be him since he gets paid 200 dimes a game just to ride the pine.

He would be a great addition and make the Celtics truly unstoppable once he got back into game shape. He would be great for them off the bench rather than a starter.

Its the only year that counts right now and it would only be till the end of the seson deal anyway. There 2nd team would go from able to hold the fort down, to unstoppable most nights of the week.Easily passing the Lakers for that right and defitnly have enough to hold off the Knicks whom I believe are on the come and will be playing the Celtics for the conference championship.

Thats right, I said the Knicks.

The Boston Celtics signed Stephon Marbury on Friday, bringing the former New York Knicks headache aboard in their attempt to repeat as NBA champions.

Marbury joins the Celts Video: Stephon Marbury is off to Boston. Hear Paul Pierce and other Celtics share their thoughts on their new acquisition.
Marbury cleared waivers on Friday morning, reported to the Celtics for a physical and was expected to be in uniform on Friday night for Boston's game against the Indiana Pacers.

"We are very excited to have a player of Stephon's caliber joining our team," Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said. "Our entire organization is confident in the belief that Stephon can play an important role in helping us to win another championship."

Marbury, a former All-Star guard who alienated Knicks management, teammates and fans, was waived on Tuesday after he agreed to a buyout of his $20.8 million contract. The Celtics were expected to offer him a pro-rated share of the veteran's $1.3 million minimum.

Marbury, who turned 32 last week, hasn't played a regular-season game in more than a year.

He arrived at the team's practice facility in Waltham just before noon, about 90 minutes after clearing waivers. He could be seen from the public area of the workout facility wearing a white, long-sleeved T-shirt and sweat pants, jumping up and down as he took the practice court, smiling and chest-bumping with several people wearing Celtics gear.

After few minutes, the automatic shades were lowered.

Marbury will back up Rajon Rondo at point guard, a role Sam Cassell served when the Celtics won their 17th NBA title last season. Eddie House, who is more of a shooter, has been forced into the role this year; Cassell did not play in a game for Boston this year before he was traded to the Sacramento Kings and released last week.

Marbury took a long leave of absence from the Knicks when his father died in December 2007, then had season-ending ankle surgery and has not played since Jan. 11, 2008.

He returned to the Knicks in training camp, but when the sides tried to negotiate a buyout early in the season, Marbury at first refused to surrender any more than $1 million of his $20.8 million salary and the team told him to stay home until it could be completed.

Marbury was the center of controversy during his five years in New York, feuding with coaches and skipping games.

Maybe he'll do great there.....I just can't imagine how or why anyone there would want to take the risk, all things considered.

Default Though rusty, joy of game back for Stephon Marbury

Though rusty, joy of game back for Stephon Marbury
Happy to be here

By Mark Murphy | Sunday, March 8, 2009 |

Stephon Marbury’s new world is a little brighter this morning, and not just because the prodigal ex-Knick has escaped from New York to Boston.

Though he grew up in Brooklyn worshipping everything that went on under the roof of Madison Square Garden, his time as a Knick never matched his old ideal.

But in the minutes following the Celtics [team stats]’ inspired win over Cleveland on Friday night, the 31-year-old guard sounded as if he had just been to the circus for the first time.

Everything about the win, from his teammates to the rousing support that came thundering out of the stands, left Marbury in a dream-like state.

“It’s fun, exciting, all of the little things that you envision,” he said. “It’s what you envision happening in a place like this.

“I’m a visionary, so I saw this happening.”

And yet, despite whatever that vision was, Marbury still sounds a bit amazed.

“Look at the Garden crowd,” he said. “Look at what happened in the minutes following Glen Davis’ Flagrant 2 takedown of Anderson Varejao in the third quarter. You just heard them all come out with this sound, like an Ugggghhhhh. It was a burst of energy, a big reaction.

“It’s exciting. You see a move and they all jump. They’re anticipating every move out there.

“Now, the (Madison Square) Garden is great - don’t get me wrong. And when you come (to TD Banknorth Garden) to play as a visitor, you’re just not going to see that kind of thing. But now that I’m here, I do.”

Marbury has already observed - and appreciated - some seemingly mundane points, like how serious the Celtics crowd takes the game.

“You don’t see people finally getting into their seats at some time in the third quarter,” he said. “They are in their seats from the start, watching everything. They don’t want to miss anything.”

Marbury understands that they haven’t missed anything in his game, for example. They know he is rusty, and that he has shot 1-fo0 in the three games since his adrenaline-driven, eight-point C’s debut on Feb. 27.

But he has a particularly big advocate in his corner, which helps Marbury shake off the tough times.

While Kevin Garnett has remained out of sight while recovering from a strained knee ligament, the Celtics forward has passed his infectious optimism on to his former Timberwolves teammate.

“I talk to him all the time,” Marbury said. “He tells me to ‘Be aggressive, be aggressive. Break out the Coney Island for them. They haven’t seen it. They don’t know what that is all about yet.’ ”

Recalling Garnett’s enthusiasm caused Marbury to laugh, as it’s probably been a while since he saw the Coney Island in himself, as well.

But right now the atmosphere around Celtics is like a big group therapy session, with the newcomer Marbury in the middle, receiving all the hugs.

“Doc (Rivers) has said go out and play your game,” Marbury said. “I just haven’t played in so long. It’s like everyone has had a head-start, and I’m still back there at the starting line. But the guys are going, ‘C’mon Steph.’ And I just want to go out there and make that play.”

There were glimmers on Friday night, like his penetration and dish to Mikki Moore for a dunk.

The crowd went wild after the play, causing Marbury to want more. But his current physical limits kept him in check.

“After that I was (excited), but my legs were like, ‘OK, don’t do that again,’ ” he said.

“It’s a challenge. Every game I’m matched up against someone who can really play. Each night it’s a guy with a different type of game. I’m so into performing at a high level, but I don’t have the burst yet. I haven’t played long enough. I’ve just had two practices. I’m off.”

Because of that, his body is talking back in ways that someone who has played the entire season wouldn’t even notice.

“I got kneed in the thigh three times (Friday night),” Marbury said. “Man, that’s something I normally wouldn’t even feel.”

There is, however, one benefit to the bruises.

They let Marbury know his career is alive once again.

Celtics notes

Davis will play in today’s game against Orlando, after all.

After reviewing footage from the Celtics’ win over Cleveland, when the second-year forward was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul and ejection for his takedown of Varejao, NBA officials decided yesterday that no further penalty was necessary.

The ruling bodes well for the C’s, who, with Davis starting in place of the injured Garnett for the last seven games, need all of the frontline help they can get.

Rivers didn’t sound particularly surprised by the outcome, as the Celtics coach thought the initial play was overblown.

“I don’t think the foul meant anything, honestly,” he said. “I like hard fouls - I just don’t want them to go (overboard). I didn’t think it was a Flagrant 2, personally, but I come from a different generation.”
