Looking at the team we currently have now with a couple of home grown New York boys in Melo from Brooklyn and Metta from Queens, it got me thinking about the other Brooklyn native and leader from Coney Island that missed out on being with his NY brothers on this roster during his career. Instead he inherited guys like Vin Baker, Keith Van Horn, Eddy Curry (No wonder he ate vaseline). Outside of a declining Alan Houston and a young David Lee, only God could make the roster Marbury had to win a championship.
Imagine if we drafted Ron Artest instead of Frederick Weis, how much more success and difference would there be in Marbury's career if he had been playing alongside guys like Melo, Metta and Tyson during his time?
Would he have gone to China?
