How much is Stephon Marbury REALLY worth? He averaged 15.6 ppg in '96-97 (his rookie season) and his best stretch was between 1998 and 2004 when he averaged 21.3, 22.2, 23.9, 20.4, 22.3, 20.2 and 2.17 ppg. respectively. For his last 2+ seasons with New York, Marbury has yet to average more than 20 points. OK, for those who argue that assists are more important than points for a point guard, Marbury's assists have also dropped from 7.8 in the '96-'97 season to his current average of 4.7.
Given his attitude, I don't think he is worth very much. I hope the Celtics don't pick him up. The thing I like most about that team is their chemistry. He doesn't have a good track record for being a team guy.
I'd never say never but to be honest I think with players like Gabe Pruitt and Eddie House on the bench we aren't exactly crying out for a guard right now, it decent big guys to come on in place of garnett like how PJ Brown did late last year.
If he can pull his weight until the end of the season then I'll be happy, plus chances are he'll gain some additional interest and perhaps become a good player to trade for someone we really need, like another Power Forward!
