Stephon Marbury and the Knicks moved a step closer to divorce yesterday when coach Mike D'Antoni announced the fallen point guard will be on the inactive list barring a major injury to a teammate.

Marbury and D'Antoni met in the lobby of the team hotel for 10 minutes before last night's horrific 116-87 loss to the Sixers at the Wachovia Center. Marbury told reporters it was "the coach's decision." D'Antoni said they "mutually agreed" on it.

Marbury, who sat on the bench in a black sports coat and jabbered with heckling fans, told The Post he just wants to play basketball, preferably for the Knicks. But Marbury emphatically stated he will not ask for his release. The Knicks will have to come to him, Marbury said. The point guard swears that has not happened yet.

A breakup is clearly where this is headed, with D'Antoni's distaste for Marbury running deep and the situation causing a distraction.

"I'm a free agent, too," Marbury said, referring to his status after the season. "I got to get on the floor and show what I can do. I still want to play basketball here. I still love the fans. I want to play basketball and I want to win a championship. If it's not to be that way, there's nothing I can do."

According to a league source, if the Knicks and Marbury part ways, the Nuggets and Heat have keen interest. Marbury spent a lot of time this summer with Nuggets assistant Tim Grgurich, working out with him informally in Los Angeles.

The Knicks could release Marbury and add Patrick Ewing Jr.

"There's not a big enough piece for him, so I don't want to play him," D'Antoni said. "This is the direction we're going. He's not a [Danilo] Gallinari who I can play four minutes and take him out. Either he has a big part of the pie or none. It would be disrespectful to play him four minutes."

He has neck tattoos and is a ball hog.

So he would be a perfect fit.

I'd rather sign Tinsley then Marbury.

i think if he wasnt a stuck up ball hog and actually played good because of the hope of winning with this team, he'd be a great pickup if he came cheap. then AC is a backup where he would play best at.
marbury can be a great player, and idk if it would be too much star power for the team

i mean come on, carreer stats: 19 ppg, 7.8 apg, 3 rpg, 1.2 steals pg, 43% feild goal percent

the dude is good, but he isnt cheap, and his stats have been decreasing, the question would be can he play with us and wojuld he get better to play with a contending team, or would he make us worse? i wouldve taken tinsley over him also.

he can be a good guy tho, look at his shoe line, starburys, i actually have a starbury shirt, lol. i like him, ut idk if he is right for us

I dont know if you guys were watching espnews today but they said the Knicks might waive Marbury and the Heat and Nuggets are interested in him. What are your guys thoughts on this?
