Marbury thinks KG and the Celtics prevailing is going to be solely dependent on their chemistry. While I agree to an extent, you SHOULD think about the Celtics if you’re in the East; especially if you’re the Knicks:
NY Post: Stephon Marbury said late last season he would love to reunite with Kevin Garnett. But Marbury feels no remorse Garnett is headed to Beantown and believes the Knicks should not be afraid of the new-look Celtics.
In an exclusive interview with The Post, Marbury also took shots at Minnesota GM Kevin McHale, expressing concern his cousin Sebastian Telfair, involved in the blockbuster, has to play for him.
“When I do speak to (Sebastian) I’ll wish him good luck and tell him to be careful around Kevin McHale,” Marbury said.
McHale’s trade has made Boston the East’s team to beat in some circles. Marbury isn’t granting the Celtics the Eastern title.
“On paper, they’re a really good team with guys who can really play, but they still have to get on the court and do it,” Marbury said. “Chemistry is everything. We look good on paper, too, and we have a year under our belts.
“I’m not thinking about Boston,” Marbury added. “I’m only thinking about the New York Knicks. Our new nickname is nice and nasty. That’s how we’re coming.”
