:unsure:

If Greece calls, Stephon Marbury is all ears.

The exiled New York Knicks point guard said in an e-mail he will consider an offer from Greek club team Olympiacos if one is forthcoming, according to the New York Post.

"I will listen to what they have to say," Marbury wrote in an e-mail, according to the report.

I sincerely hope not.

I don't think he will be very welcome in Greece at all.

Of course he'll listen to offers. He wants to play and make more money.

Any NBA player would be welcome in Greece. Its not like they'll hate the guy. They have no history with him and he'd be amiable as heck over there because he ahs no axe to grind. It would work over there for him.

However, when an NBA team comes calling (hint, hint) I don't think he'll turn that down in favor of playing in Greece.

Well the point is that Greek teams won't want him clowning around like he is doing with the Knicks. It would be wrong to think they would accept that kind of behaviour just because he's a former "NBA star".

I'd guarantee he wouldn't do the same thing that he did with the Knicks.

With Thomas running that thing and the Knicks upper management they breed discontent. I don't think any other NBA team would put up with it either, but the Knicks have this tendency to piss off their players as much as their fans.

Turns out they're not after Marbury:

Olympiakos, the Greek team that has been linked to Stephon Marbury, is actually interested in a player with European experience, not a point guard that has spent his entire career in the NBA.

Owners of Olympiakos told agents Thursday that they want to sign a combo guard who has played in Europe before.

They even found a way to piss off their already retired players. Patrick Ewing wasn't too happy when they cut his son...
