New York Knicks Getting Inside 2008-04-06

New York Knicks Getting Inside 2008-04-06
Despite suffering through a nightmare season, it now seems likely Stephon Marbury will get to come back for one last chance to impress the homefolk.

Now that Donnie Walsh is president of the Knicks, they are not looking to unload players with expiring contracts. Walsh wants to get this organization under the salary cap following the 2009-10 season. Marbury happens to have an expiring deal, so there's a chance he will remain.

Essentially, the Knicks can't let Marbury go unless they get back useful players with deals that expire in the next two seasons. The controversial playmaker really needs to have a good season to earn one last payday.

There are plenty of questions to answer before that kind of an opportunity is granted, however. Marbury will have a chance to explain his overnight departure that contributed to an 0-5 road trip back in November.

"There's a guy, you talk about bad seasons," Walsh said. "When you have a guy like Stephon Marbury and then he goes out, that's a major league problem for the franchise. I want to kind of learn more about that. I know about this thing that happened earlier in the season. I don't know enough about it, but I heard about it. I really do want to sit down and know what the issues are because he's a good player."

HORNETS 118, KNICKS 110: Chris Paul carved up the Knicks in the final minutes on Friday at New Orleans Arena, sending them home to regroup after five straight losses on this zig-zag road trip. It didn't matter who stepped up to meet the ball, the magical Hornets' point guard was unstoppable.

Paul registered 33 points and 15 assists.

After heading into the fourth quarter knotted up, 87-87, the Knicks failed to maintain their composure. Jamal Crawford was guilty of two untimely turnovers. Peja Stojakovic pulled up behind the arc with six minutes remaining and converted the second miscue to put New Orleans in front 107-100. Shots began to clang off the rim.

And in the final two minutes, the Hornets turned up the intensity and were sitting on a comfortable 117-104 cushion. Jamal Crawford had 29 points and nine assists for the Knicks, while Zach Randolph added 22 points and 12 rebounds.
