Rhoden Defends Marbury

    Two columns out of three in past week defending Stephon Marbury.

    With apologies to Greeg Doylie leave it to Bill Rhoden to find a way to defend the indefensible.

  2. And Boom's obsessions get the better of him again.

    If D'Antoni doesn't leave an opening you could drive a truck through, Rhoden's got nothing, here.

    But D'Antoni did.

    Tough to root for either side, on this one. Given D'Antoni's (non!)-defensive philosophy, he'll fail at MSG, sooner or later.
  4. Ben --
    Lebron James said last week that he and D'Antoni -- who's never won a damn thing -- have a personal bond dating back to the Olympics. For the next two seasons, D'Antoni has better job security than the pope.

    I well-understand the politics involved here. It gives the guy
    a big edge. It doesn't give the guy the right to be a pre-emptive,
    manipulative putz.

    I can think of few greater potential sporting tragedies than LeBron eventually becoming a Knick under the present ownership.
  6. True dat.
    If I'm Marbury, I'm telling him to jam it, too.

    Rhoden doesn't defend anyone in that column.

    Can't understand why they just didn't tell Marbury to stay home all season. I guess trying to humiliate him would lead him to agree to a cheaper buyout.

    Who signs him if he is released?

    I'm in agreement. Rhoden has backed the wrong horse many times, but he doesn't seem to be staunchly defending Marbury. If anything, the message I got from the column is that nobody is handling this situation well. But then again, they are the Knicks and MSG.

    If he told the truth to The Post, Coney Island's Finest goes to the Italian League.
