Might As Well Embrace It

RedsArmyAdmin February 25, 2009 Uncategorized 9 Comments on Might As Well Embrace It

So it looks like Stephon Marbury is joining the Celtics… whether some fans like it or not.  And like Chuck with Barack Obama… you've got no choice but to embrace it now and hope he succeeds (you heard me, Rush… you fat, blowhard, vicodin addict).

So sit back and enjoy Steph in his better days… and hope he can recreate some of it here in Boston.

    If he adds spark, great. If they cut him, oh well at least they tried.
    In the end, I’m getting the green pair of starburys when they are launched

    Bill has pretty much summed it up: When you think of Marbury, first things that come to mind are:
    1. Forcing the trade out of Minnesota. He was a 21 year old big city kid playing in the middle of nowhere (Minnesota) with Superagent David Falk yapping in his ear. Was he naive, sure, but he’s not the first athlete who has wanted out of Minnesota.
    2. The spats with Larry Brown. Who hasn’t butted heads with Larry Brown. Next.
    3. D’Antoni placing him on the inactive list “to avoid embarrassing him with limited playing time.” He alienated Marbury the moment he arrived in NY. Then barred Steph from even practicing when he didn’t respond well to it.
    If you think about it, there are actually quite a few similarities with Marbury and Moss coming to Boston.
    Both came to Boston from dysfunctional franchises for next to nothing. Both played in Minnesota. Both made boneheaded mistakes (Moss w/ the weed, hitting the traffic cop and running, etc.; Marbury with everything since he’s the “devil”). And both Boston teams had(/have) great veteran leadership (Brady vs. Big Three).
    We do not need Steph to be the man, he’s needed for depth. And how can he contribute any less than Cassell? This is an upgrade…
    And oh by the way, Fox Sports Channel had a special on Stephon Marbury way back and he said one of his biggest regrets was not staying in Minnesota to win a championship with KG. Now he has his shot.

    huh? i am a fat, blowhard, vicodin addict?
    just for that, i aint roundin’ up your usual dies-y-sais concubines in your next trip to manila. HAH!!!!
    btw…let’s go celts!

  • If Marbury causes any controversy, The Big 3 will just slap some common sense into him OR just cut him out entirely.
    I understand why you are worrying about Marbury’s behavior, but you need to understand that we are not losing anything. If Marbury acts up and we cut him out, we still have an amazing team. If Marbury plays as a team player, Celtics will be a much better team.
    Therefore, there is nothing to worry about. I don’t think Marbury would cause any controversy anyways because if he continues his bullshit, his career is over.

    remember the Head Alien from the “MARS ATTACKS” movie?

    Couldn’t have said it better John. I was heavily opposed to the move, but now its a done deal so lets just move forward and welcome Stephon to the family.
    It’s kinda like getting a new step-dad…. but you still have your real dad.

    Marbury haters make it sound like the guy sucks at basketball and he infects everyone he’s around. But this guy can flat out play. I think we’re gonna see this bench get a whole lot better real quick.

  • Wow…a spectacular talent. Really is a shame that he’s such a moron.

  • For some reason, the concept of getting Starbury makes me feel kinda dirty somehow, maybe inadequate.
