I don't believe that people are giving Steph the respect that he deserves. Many are calling him washed up, forgotten, they assert that he should just head overseas and forget the NBA entirely. I disagree, I very well believe that Steph has what it takes to still play great basketball.

At this point in his career, he just needs to play for a coach and a team that actually playa together and really believes in their system. The players, coaches and management would shape him into the player he can be. (like, Boston, LA, Spurs. Cavs... No way he comes to any of these teams and "acts out" )

We forgret that among active players, Marbury is 3rd behind, Kidd and nash for all time assist leaders. In fact, Take a quick look at Marbur's numbers before and after larry brown.

Give a good coach and system and he can still be productive.

My Prediction: Marbury will play this season out with the celtics and then go split minutes at point guard with bibby in Atlanta (He's from GA tech and he played with Joe Johson in phx). I think he could actually do well with those group of guys.:eyebrow:

He had some great seasons, i don't think he'll ever get back to where he once was but he should be playing in the NBA right now. I thought he would have a breakout season in NY.
