All things NBA, cont’d

Posted: January 23, 2009 in Euroleague, NBA, Stephon Marbury
After Josh Childress made the move to Greece, it was considered that others would willing follow. The latest name to make the move was possibly Stephon Marbury, who is wasting away waiting for the NY Knicks to buy him out or deal him (maybe to the Celtics)?

The same Greek team that signed Childress was very interested in Starbury, but that has passed. Their playoff roster is due and they wanted to bolster it with Starbury. Steph, it’s reality time. Are you trying to play basketball or watch in every arena in the NBA? I know you are paid up but you aren’t even allowed to put on your kicks and play for the team that signed you.

UPDATE:  Upon learning that Starbury prefers watching to playing, the Greek team is making a run at Pargo.

In other news, the newly vacant Grizz coaching position will not be filled by Avery Johnson. It’s understandable to go after Johnson because he did take the Mavericks to the Finals, but really? Avery Johnson?

Look, the Grizzlies are not a bad team they have the pieces there to be good.

That is a young nucleus to build around. I guess the question is whom to go after. Someone in college? An NBA assistant? Big name coach?
