End It Now, Marbury Won’t Be A Cancer

Stephon Marbury Checklist:
- He’s a cancer.
- He only plays for himself.
- He can’t play any more.
- He will try to take over the locker room.
Anyone who thought that Marbury was a bad addition by the Boston Celtics should just cut their losses now because this is going to turn out to be the best move they could have made. After not playing in a regular season game in over an entire calendar year, Marbury came in and showed flashes of how good he still is.
He shot four for six on from the floor for eight points and also dished out two assists. He hit his first shot attempt from the short corner on the left side of the floor like he has been doing it every day for the past year. His first touch was running a pick and roll with Leon Powe and watching Marbury make the pass, you knew that he still had his court vision.
Ladies and gentlemen, embrace Stephon Marbury as a member of the Boston Celtics. He will not be a cancer to this team. There’s just too much leadership in the locker room to allow that to happen. He will add some swagger to the bench and gives us some much needed insurance in case Rondo were to ever get hurt.
Will this hurt the progression of Gabe Pruitt? Most definitely, but when it comes to winning titles, we can’t worry about getting our young guns some run as much as getting wins not only now, but in the postseason.
Stephon Marbury… Welcome to the Boston Celtics!
