Cassel and Pioli look to rebuild a crumbling franchise

I need to start off by saying the acquisition of Stephon Marbury is horrible.  Marbury is the second most selfish athlete in professional sports (the first being team obliterator). I know the first game for Marbury was great and he did contribute against the lowly Pacers, however when playoff time comes around, do you really trust a primadonna who only cares about himself and his personal image?  I don’t and that’s why I believe if Marbury is still on the team come playoff time, the Boston Celtics will not repeat as NBA champs!

I have faith in the team culture and think that distractions tend to take a back seat when players finally get to play for a championship. Instead, I want to focus on how Stephon fits in where it matters most: The basketball court. Continue Reading
