Sorry if this has already been posted, but here:

After several months of being embroiled in a soap opera, the Knicks worked out a buyout of Marbury’s $21 million contract today. Two NBA sources said that once the two-time All-Star clears waivers — which is expected to be Friday morning — he will sign with the Celtics for a prorated $1.3 million minimum contract for the rest of the season. The Celtics also filled their need for a veteran big man by signing Moore for the rest of the season to undisclosed financial terms. ‘‘I’m blessed to be able to move on with my career,’’ said Marbury via e-mail. ‘‘I’m excited about the new beginning.’’

Source: Hoopshype

I have a feeling Marbury is going to thrive over there, especially seeing that he will be playing for a ring and his next contract. The man has a lot to prove.

Super.

I would be excited too if the Lakers just picked up Marbury.

I just really believe this is the Lakers' year.

They look dominant every night.

They don't need any1 else.

This helps the Celtics as long as Marbury doesn't destroy the team. Rondo's playing out of his mind though, so I don't see Stephon getting a lot of court time. Basically he's to make sure the second unit can score.

We'll see if it's enough to beat the Cavs and Lakers, soon enough.

All i can say is that I hope Steph has learned a valuable lesson from his experience with the knicks. He will have an opportunity to redeem himself as being a big time player coming off the bench for rondo. He might even get a ring. :pity:

It's about being dominant in the playoffs, not the regular season.

The way I see it, the Lakers may not even come out of the west because of the Spurs.

Marbury is a no lose situation for the C's. He either acts appropriately and gets some playing time off the bench, to hopefully give the 2nd unit some scoring, or he gets benched or cut. It's simple. He has to behave and play well if wants anything more than the vet's minimum next season.

The Celtics got taken to 7 games by Atlanta and somebody else last year - Detroit?

The C's are going to have a tougher time getting to the finals then the Lakers will.

San Antonio is not that good anymore and I noticed that they resort to dirty, physical play to make up for it.

Thats not going to work.

Let me give you a piece of advice:

Don't worry your little head about the Lakers. They will be just fine with their homecourt advantage all the way through the playoffs.

Celtics fans should be more worried that this might be your last chance at a ring with that team because you are getting OLD.

Setting yourself up for failure? Completely invalid argument given THEY WON THE TITLE. Steph will be a solid addition to their bench.

02-25-2009, 01:45 PM
Im sorry but thats ignorant. The ONLY reason why Boston's pile of stars is successful, is because they have good chemistry and play with one and other instead of being selfish....

Example of putting stars on one team and FAIL would be the Lakers with Kobe, Shaq, Payton, and Malone in 2004.

Great signing. I cant believe they actually just gave this guy 18 million to go to a division rival who's a top contender for the title. Thanks NY. Knicks>Yankees

And stop this talk about whos going to have a harder road. Nobody thought the Hawks would take us to 7 games and NOBODY knows whats going to happen this postseason. Theres still regular season ball to played, anything can go down.(Signings, injuries, cuts) Boston isnt a lock for the finals, but either is L.A. The spurs, jazz, nuggets, and blazers imo wont be easy games. Cant wait.

a dream come true would be: the celtics sign marbury and get the #1 seed in the playoffs...by this time marbury complains about his playing time to doc and the entire team chemisty goes right down the drain

Then the knicks with the 8th seed fight it out with the celtics in a 7 game series and win the final game on a driving layup missed by stephon

I'm kind of excited to see how Marbury plays. He hasnt played in an NBA game for a long time, and I'm just curious to see what kind of shape he's in, and how good he still is, if he is as good as he once was.

This could be a very good signing for the Celtics. I think its definitely a low risk, high reward move.

Wouldn't be suprised to see Steph play two guard now and then.

BouGa
02-25-2009, 07:29 PM
Didn't Steph just give up a ridiculous amount of money to come play in Boston? I think by now he realizes this is his last and only shot of playing again in the NBA. If he knew he was going to come over or even think he would cause a problem, he would have just stayed in New York and collected $20 Mil.

Hes getting his last chance and shot to prove himself and every1 else wrong who doubts him. He knows his place, and if he doesn't he'll learn it VERY fast with the 3 vets on our team. Add onto the fact that if Cassel comes back he'll throw in some of his insight.

He'll show up, work his *** off and be solid off the bench, if not he knows hes gone and so his career in playing in the NBA.

Lets stop trash talking Steph on past problems and see what comes in the future, because its not really going anywhere now with the things that are being said over and over.

Good signing by the Celtics IMO but to be honest to only team i fear in the east is Orlando yes Marbury will be coming off the bench but LA will be fine when Bynum comes back they'll have LO or Bynum coming of the bench so its no biggie im confidant that if LA is healthy they can beat any team if healthy like i said the only one is Orlando that scares me

Orlando took a HUGE hit losing Nelson, I don't think any1 realizes how big of a piece he was. That alone hurts them very much down the stretch, and early in the playoffs. Even when he comes back if he does, he won't be full strength and his game will show that.

The point guard is the main key to all teams, especially in the playoffs. Even with Alstons experience, he isn't anything close to what Jameer brought to that team.

And you don't win in the playoffs by living or dieing by the 3 point shot, defense moves you on. 3 pt shooting just keeps you afloat long enough until you play a solid defense team.

Its a 4 team shootout in the nba right now.

Boston
Lakers
Cavs
Spurs - A healthy Spurs team is a VERY dangerous team.

I don't get it. He can play, but he is not worth the risk. He will do more harm than good. This should be interesting.

Oh im sure it was huge losing him it shows by their play but fact is they beat us twice(with Nelson) and its just a team i wouldnt want to face. I think when all 5 teams are healthy they sit like this
1. Lakers
2. Celtics
3. Spurs
4. Cavs
5. Orlando

Now i know i have Orlando at 5 up there but orlando has a banger in Howard a Big Physical presence down low and those are the teams LA has problems with

Marbury with the Celts will be fine, He knows this is his last chance to prove himself, if he ****s this one up he knows he will probably never make a roster again, if he plays good then he knows someone will be wanting to sign him to a contract next season. Marbury didn't suck with KG, I believe they made it to the playoffs in Garnetts second year, he just got big headed and decided it was time to bounce. He will be kept in check this time, Celtics won't tolerate a "cancer" on their roster

Garnett's going to keep him in check? How, by getting on all fours and barking at him? If anyone is to keep him in check it will be Pierce. It is his team. Marbury didn't suck with the T wolves? Yes they did make the playoffs but they didn't do much. He got many teams to the playoffs. Hasn't won a ring, and usually the team just gets worse untell he is let go or traded. Kinda like TO in the NFL. He arrives, has a immediate impact, gets bored or pissed that something doesn't go his way, and the the team suffers. Marbury won't like being the 5th or 6th option. If he has grown up, and he can be a role player for 2 months then good for him. I don't see it happening.

I agree. The Cavs and Magic are much better so they will provide a tougher challenge for Boston than last year. Hard to imagine that if the Celtics and Cavs meet up again that it will be a more entertaining series than last year. That was my favorite series of the entire playoffs last year, easily.

But with this signing today, I fail to see the downside to it at all. Marbury can create shots for himself and make everyone around him better. He's hungrier than ever to play basketball and repair his image. If he is a problem for Boston, then they just cut him and move on. It's not like they're paying him a big contract or anything.

Lakers are a different team i thought you guys should of realized that by now even just Ariza he made a huge difference and you got a taste of what their like with Bynum just cause you beat on team the year before doesnt mean you'll beat them the next you need to realize that especially when the team your talking about adds two huge pieces of their game cause Ariza and Bynum dont just sit on the bench all game Bynum starts and Ariza contributes the most off the bench with his D and his slashing abilities

02-25-2009, 08:48 PM
Why do people honestly think he will be a cancer? All because of his past? Do people that think the Celtics chemistry will be ruined factor in how much we pay Marbury. If he complains about minutes, stirs trouble in the locker room, bashes the team through media, he will be cut an released and then the CANCERS gone. So how can this be a bad signing? How can this "blow up in our faces"? We are not the knicks, we aint giving this guy 20 million. Everything about Marbury to the Celtics sounds goo to me. Hes cheap, has careere averages of 20 ppg and 8 apg, doesnt mind a reduced role, has former ties with K.G, wants to win a ring, wants a new contract next year, and has a chip on his shoulder WITH many doubters to prove wrong. I like the signing.

Lakers are a different team i thought you guys should of realized that by now even just Ariza he made a huge difference and you got a taste of what their like with Bynum just cause you beat on team the year before doesnt mean you'll beat them the next you need to realize that especially when the team your talking about adds two huge pieces of their game cause Ariza and Bynum dont just sit on the bench all game Bynum starts and Ariza contributes the most off the bench with his D and his slashing abilities

This is a Marbury to Boston thread. Who cares about Bynum and Ariza. We all know the Lakers are a good team. We get it. If we get to the finals and so do the lakers we'll see what happens. Til then just shut up

I dont think he will be a cancer on Boston. I think he will fit in nicely with the ego of KG. However, I still think that the loss of Brown and Posey can't be replaced by Moore and Marbury. IF the C's make it to the finals this year, the Lakers will take them

If i was Doc and had a team trying to repeat as NBA champions, and considering how well the Celts are doing this season...I'd stay as far away from Marbury as I could. Just how long do you think Marbury will be cool backing up Rondo? Why mess with something that obviously is working? Don't do it Boston.

give me a break. he will not and cannot be a cancer. hes a bench player. how can a bench player be a cancer. i dont believe he was ever a cancer really. yeah i said it. i think the knicks were douche bags to him. why should he give them wha they want if they didnt treat him like the star point guard that he is? hes not gunna be a cancer. hes going to be the best back up point guard in the nba, and possibly the player that puts the celts on top(even tho they pretty much are on top).

its the cels, cavs, lakers(not in any particular order). any three of those teams can possibly beat the other two so theres no way i can decide between them

Overly excited..? I mean i dont think signing Starbury is a automatic title. But its somewhat intriguing to know u have a career 20ppg scorer and one of NBAs former elite pgs coming off the bench. Both players u mentioned, Shaq and O'neal went to their respective teams as starters and were expected to be vital pieces.

Not offended at all. Im just sick of hearing that Marbury will cause chemistry issue or be some sorta cancer to this team. This situation isnt like NY. We dont owe this guy millions upon millions of dollars. We wont have to worry about buy outs. If he starts up and pulls some B.S hes gone. There wont be weeks and months of specualtion of him leaving or marbury showing up to our opponents arena with a purchased front row ticket. He messes up once hes gone. I dont think hes had those circumstances since hes been in the lg. We'll be fine

I'm a Laker fan, but I must admit, this acquisition has a possibility of being huge for the Celtics. Marbury may be a cancer, but joining a team with star power such as the Celtics, does elevate a player's game. If he could limit his shots and pass the ball, he'll be just fine.

It's about being dominant in the playoffs, not the regular season.

The way I see it, the Lakers may not even come out of the west because of the Spurs.

Marbury is a no lose situation for the C's. He either acts appropriately and gets some playing time off the bench, to hopefully give the 2nd unit some scoring, or he gets benched or cut. It's simple. He has to behave and play well if wants anything more than the vet's minimum next season.

Put the pipe down. The Spurs? The same Spurs team the Lakers beat handily last time they played them? The same Spurs team the Lakers ousted out of the playoffs last year? In case you forgot, the Spurs are once again short with an injured Ginobili. Your Western Conference knowledge is rusty, time for a tetanus shot. I think Marbury is a good addition, but I just don't think he'll make that much of a difference. Moore is another nice addition, but once again, not much difference. Neither of these guys has the impact on D that Posey and PJ had last year. Marbury selfishness is another possible issue. Another thing to watch out for is how this effects Rondo. Rondo is just now gaining confidence in his J and this acquisition could regress that.
Excluding the Finals, the Lakers did just fine in the playoffs. They had a much easier time getting to the Finals than the celts. Now they have Ariza at full strength, Gasol for a full season, and a good chance of Bynum being there for a finals run, the Lakers appear to have a smoother road to the finals than your Celts. If we meet again in June, the outcome could be much different.

Of course he wont average 20 ppg...None of the Big 3 even average 20 ppg.. We just need him to score aswell as make the second unit better. He;ll be told his role and he'll follow it.

I just finished watching the KG documentary on NBA TV. I'm now curious to see whether reuniting with Marbury can ignite a flame inside KG.
Ainge seems to be trying to surround KG with his big influences from the past. Last year he picked up Cassell for the championship run. It would be the sweetest feeling for KG if he could give one of his closest teammates in his career a taste of championship glory.
KG and Marbury have some unfinished business to take care of. I'm calling it right now...the Celtics are winning the championship.

Winning is fine, and you should be proud of it. My problem with the fans in Boston is this; After years and years of the majority of their teams struggling, Boston has finally returned to winning, and like I said thats great. But their fan base has turned face so quickly. The way Boston fans act towards other teams fans disgust me. You would think a fan of teams who have REALLY struggled for a while, (and yes this is mainly at Red Sox fans, but it applies for the Celtics too) that those fans would be less harsh and more understanding when talking about teams who are in the same situation as the Boston teams were just 5 short years ago. They have become holier than everyone else around them, and talk down to people like they are lesser fans, just because they are a Boston fan. While I know this doesn't apply to everyone, b/c there are diehard fans out there, but the truth is their fan bases have doubled in recent years, and thats where you get the ignorant fans that make everyone hate Boston. I appologize to the good Red Sox fans out there, but this is a topic that really bugs me.

I actually predict that Marbury won't be going to the Celtics. I actually think he's going to the Cavs to help out LBJ and most likely, solidify his position in Cleveland, taking away any chances that Lebron would sign with the Knicks.

That's what I would do to not only have a decent shot at getting my first ring, but also getting back at the ballclub that benched me for the whole year and didn't buy me out until after the trade deadline.

Would Marbury replace rondo in the starting lineup?

I think his FT shooting alone warrants him a better position.

He can pass, slash, and shoot. His defensive mishaps will be covered by KG and Perkins.

I think that Rondo would solidify the second unit. But then again, Rondo is the future ... considering his age... who knows.

ok i know marbury isnt Jesus, but can someone list what hes actually done?
i really don't remember anything he did that was so bad until Isiah destroyed the knicks.

EDIT: the one reason why this is going to work out great; Marbury will end his career if he does not at least make the Finals. if the Celtics do not win it all, Marbury will be blamed. he has a lot more to lose than the Celtics.

this move is going to be great. Marbury will be on his best behavior in Boston for the rest of the season and post season, after that, WHO CARES? he will be on another team as starting PG.

02-27-2009, 02:46 PM
It's about being dominant in the playoffs, not the regular season.

The way I see it, the Lakers may not even come out of the west because of the Spurs.

Marbury is a no lose situation for the C's. He either acts appropriately and gets some playing time off the bench, to hopefully give the 2nd unit some scoring, or he gets benched or cut. It's simple. He has to behave and play well if wants anything more than the vet's minimum next season.

you do realize that the Spurs suck right?
that they rely on MATT BONNER
yes MATT ****ING BONNER for offensive input have you seen the guy play? or try to make a play?

NOBODY expects Morrison to help... Lakers ain't as stupid as you might think they... The trade was considered a salary dump, Radmanovic was riding the bench anyways. Anyways, different topic.

Marbury might help the Celts if he accepts the role as a substitute. It could cause chemistry problems, but after his Knicks experience he probably won't be as selfish. It might be his last chance to win a ring.

So far Stephon looked good. Hit his first jumper from about 14 ft. Has an assist and a steal in 5 minutes of play.Two turnovers as well, to be expected though since he hasnt played.

Im excited for this, its a low risk-high reward scenario. Plus, the crowd cheered loud for him when he first got in the game, and there was a HUGE smile on his face, hes happy to be here, and will do whatever Doc ask's him too.

For the guy commenting on Marbury playing less than house; it doesn't matter. Marbury was signed today, do you think he knows all the set plays? He's playing point and in order for him to be effective, he needs to know what the hell he's running and at the same time, Boston has the best defensive system in the league, do you honestly think Marbury already learned the system in a matter of hours.

The Lakers are the same team as last year. :shrug: Yeah, some guys on LA have improved. But so have the players on Boston. Rondo, Ray Allen, Glen Davis all have gotten much bettter. And the addition of Marbury was brilliant. The Celtics are stronger than last year IMO.

Yeah, in Phoenix, I dont think he was a problem, as I think they traded him mostly for salary reduction purposes...

In New Jersey, he got traded mostly because they needed a change, cuz they werent going anywhere, and they had a lot of talent being wasted with Van Horn, Gill, Kittles, K-Mart, etc.

The only place he had "problems" were in New York, but that was just ugly.

I'd probably also say he had problems in Minnesota, but only because the way he left, it was ugly and really pissed off all of his fans in Minnesota.

The Celtics have much better chemistry than the Lakers ever will. Kobe is a great player, but he's no leader -- we saw that in the play-offs last year when he was whining and yelling at his teammates. Whenever Kobe is part of the equation, there goes chemistry. He's the polar opposite of Garnett.
