Memo to Marbury: Why you will never play for the Miami Heat!

Stephon Marbury told the New York Post on Sunday that he didn’t turn down a chance to play for the Heat. In fact, Marbury still hasn’t given up hope on playing for Miami.

Marbury said a Chinese reporter mixed up the translation of his remarks and that it was falsely reported he had rejected an offer from the Heat. He told the Post that Miami contacted him in early July before LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh joined forces. The Heat told him they would get back to him after "they handled all the things they had to handle."

"It’s total nonsense, why would I turn down a chance to play for the Miami Heat?" Marbury said. "The report was a fabrication."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Ah Steph’, it’s not happening. You wil never play for the Miami Heat.

Forgive me for being blunt, but such a tone is necessary when dealing with the delusional Stephon Marbury, who still believes he has a chance of suiting up with the Three kings in Miami.

He doesn’t. Here’s why:

1) Marbury and LeBron James don’t like each other. At least, The King doesn’t jive with Starbury. As The Man in Miami, he won’t forgive and forget by extending an olive branch to an over-the-hill, attention-seeking point guard.   

2) Miami already has three point guards on the roster: Carlos Arroyo, Mario Chalmers, and James. There is no role or minutes for Marbury.

3) It’s all risk, no reward in Miami. Suppose they sign Marbury. He’d rarely play and they’d be risking a Starbury meltdown, which would bring more media attention.

Marbury isn’t a bad guy, though. He has given back to his native New York. His signature shoe is apparently thriving.

However, he must face facts: his time in the NBA is over. Done. Finished.

Instead of plotting on an NBA comeback, he should continue playing overseas in China or do a tour in Italy or Greece -something he always wanted to do.

Anything is better than the current nonsense.
