Suns 1,203,310 Knicks 102

Phoenix beat the Knicks yesterday only by a little over a million points last night. Stephon Marbury decided to skip the game in order to not embarrass his former team. The Suns have been in a downward spiral since they traded Marbury to the Knicks in 2004. Isiah admitted that he didn’t know where Marbury was, and would be calling milk companies to help him locate the Knicks’ guard.

Meanwhile Steph was rumored to have hired Dave Chappelle as a “runaway advisor”. One anonymous member of the Marbury clan told a story of Steph donning his old Suns jersey and rooting for his former team. It’s likely that Marbury will be appearing on Oprah, but unlike Chappelle he won’t be defending himself. Defense has never been Stephon’s strength.

  1. “It?s likely that Marbury will be appearing on Oprah, but unlike Chappelle he won?t be defending himself. Defense has never been Stephon?s strength.”

    I loled.

    I think that if I were to see Marbury walking down the street(unlikely, given my geographic location) I would throw something heavy at him or punch him. It’s not really anything personal, I just feel that if anybody deserves a punch in the face it’s him.

  2. The good news is…I think this is rock bottom. The constant feelings of frustration, Anger and sense of shame has peaked, and a sort of numbness, a Zen-like calm has taken over. Change is in the wind, and the Isiah/Steph chokehold on the Franchise may have reached critical mass.
    The daggers are out, blindfolds creased and cigarettes lit. This Organiziation is getting ready for one gigantic enema, a purge of the last 5 years. Absoulute Failure has taken hold. This was the proverbial last straw. There is absolutely nowhere to go from here but upward.

  3. Steve, you mean you can’t imagine IT making a desperation trade that leaves the organization worse off than it is now? Please, I bet we can get Glen Rice for Balkman and Lee. The ship ain’t sunk as low as it can. I have faith that Dolan can find a way to snatch tragedy out of the jaws of defeat.

  4. It will only get worse from here. With Steph on the way out, Isiah understands that he now needs to trade for another duplicate player for Jamal. More shoot-first, win-games-later SGs must be brought in. We don’t have enough players that don’t understand the concept of team play. We need more.

  5. This is a great, snarky article that was just about as helpful as Chris Sheridan’s ESPN article on possible trade scenarios for Starbury. (Did you see those trades…god-awful!)

    If I were GM for a day I’d push for an above-average white PG who passes first. Think Steve Blake, Sergio Rodriguez or wishful thinking Jose Calderon.

  6. Are there any drunks trying to get straight?
    Any almost-over-the-hill stars with just a little glint left?
    Any rough, young players with “upside,” available?
    Any wife-beaters, baby-making machines running around trying to find a pay-day?

    With Isiah, there is no bottom.

  7. let’s hope this is the straw that finally breaks the camel’s back and gets both IT and Marbury canned (and maybe Dolan too if Marbury knows stuff about him as well)

    Awful for who? The problem is teams aren’t lining up to take $42 million worth of Starbury so that bag of awful looking trade scenerios is what you’re left with. It’s either taking back somebody elses awful contracts, packaging him with somebody or something that other teams actually want or buying him out, eating close to $42 million and getting literaly nothing.

    Personally, I see Marbury/Collins going to Cleveland this week for Hughes/Snow. It’s the only option I see with even a hint of logic for both sides. Certainly not ideal but at least Hughes is young enough and has a good enough past that Isiah can sell the idea that he already has enough offense and needed to acquire 2 defensive oriented players. And basically, Isiah is just scrambling to save himself at this point.

  9. Somebody did take on Francis’s contract and he had two years left. Zbo and Jones did give us some value back.

    Meanwhile, Steph will come back and play and he’ll be better for the butt kicking. Zach is back tonight and I think despite the media frenzy we have a chance to be good this year.

    I do think we should fire Isaiah now. Enough is enough. Let someone come in who can teach and be patient.

    If we still stink by the beginning of 2008 then it’ll be time to look to dump veterans, let the young guys start, at least have a likeable team, and look forward to OJ Mayo.

  10. “Somebody did take on Francis?s contract and he had two years left. Zbo and Jones did give us some value back.”

    Yeah– the irony, though, is that if Isiah had never traded for Francis in the first place, Portland probably would have done the deal for Marbury and Frye instead (without having to throw in Dickau). At the time, Francis happened to be the one that Isiah wanted to get rid of more…
