Stephon Marbury has had a rocky relationship with the Knicks and publicly feuded with coaches Larry Brown and Isiah Thomas during his time in New York. A new chapter was added to the Marbury-Knicks saga when he said that the team could never flourish with Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. In an interview with ESPN New York, Marbury said that the Anthony-Stoudemire duo could never work. “[Stoudemire]‘s a pick-and-roll guy, a pick-and-pop guy. He can’t play in the half court where everything’s slowed down.” He went on to say that the Knicks should focus their attention on Anthony and build a team around him. There was a lot of excitement in New York when the team picked up Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler but the Knicks haven’t quite gotten any bang for their buck. Last season, they posted a 36-30 record and lost 1-4 to the Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs. In fact, the highlight of last season had nothing to do with the “big 3.” It was all about Jeremy Lin, who’s now with the Houston Rockets. The Knicks have failed to live up to expectations and with the Nets moving into Brooklyn, they might not even be the best team in New York city. Marbury might not be the most reliable source to comment on his former team. But until the Knicks prove him wrong, the man has a point.
