So the Celtics lost today. No Rondo, No KG... big Baby Davis got injured. So it would be an ideal time for Marbury to step up, right? Let's hear what Celtics fans are saying...

This game shows how valuable Rajon Rondo is to the Celtics. It has an effect on everyone else on the team. For example, early in the first quarter, the Celtics ran a play they run a million times… Ray down the baseline off a staggered double screen. If the guy chases Ray under it, he curls and goes to the hoop. If the guy gets caught up and goes over the screen, Ray goes to the corner for 3. Rondo gets him the ball every time on that… but Stephon Marbury held it.

That’s no knock on Steph. It’s a play only a PG in tune with the Celtics offense can make. The Celtics were just completely disjointed in the first half. They got more aggressive in the second half and they made their run. By the way, did Marbury even play in the second half?


and Steph is nowhere near ready to be a starting PG, but the only way he’ll “get ready” is burn-so that was good for him.


I don’t think Steph is ready to be thrown into a game as a starter yet. He can’t learn much that way. Doing that both hurts the team AND does little to improve his overall play. He needs PRACTICE time to learn the Cs game, not useless, pathetic playing time. I like Marbury, but he was the primary reason the first half was the worst in 2 years. Him, and the D, which wasn’t there.


Stephon started in his place. Steph certainly wasn't worse than having Eddie run the point, but that's also a pretty low standard. Hopefully some of his rust will wear off - it's clear there is a lot of it there, often Steph seems to miss handle a ball or mis-dribble, which to me are the tell-tale signs.

I knew it... All that ring rust, Stephon Marbury is not your traditional PG, and he is nowhere the defensive player like Rondo is... Oh, and Mikki Moore has been sucking too...

Those two just cannot absolutely replace James Posey and PJ Brown...

Doesn't seem so surprising to me.
