This is supposed to make them contenders

Posted: January 2, 2009 in Boston Celtics, NBA, New York Knicks, Stephon Marbury

There are reports surfacing that Starbury will be joining the Celtics.

That still depends largely on Marbury’s ability to negotiate his release from the Knicks after weeks of fruitless and oft-contentious buyout talks, but sources with knowledge of the situation told this week that Boston is Marbury’s preferred destination if he manages to become a free agent and that the Celtics are indeed hopeful of signing him.

Celtics general manager Danny Ainge did not immediately respond to a request for comment on a New Year’s Day holiday for the entire league and has generally refused to address the possibility of signing Marbury. Yet it’s believed that the Celtics’ concerns about their depth, after losing James Posey and P.J. Brown from last season’s title team, have swelled noticeably since they followed up the best 29-game start in NBA history at 27-2 by losing three of the next four games on the road.

This is the dumbest move the Celtics could possibly make. Hopeful of signing him? What in the wide world of sports is goin on? A declining point guard who shoots first goin to the champion Celtics?
Several teams that could use Marbury have passed so why should the Celtics take him? It might be cheap but Marbury isn’t exactly a safe bet. He hasn’t been a sure thing since he was drafted in 96. He has gotten himself dealt from two teams.
What are your thought, readers? Should the Celtics take him
