    How can you be NBA ready when you have an injury that is pretty much impossible to ever come back at 100%?

    He's clueless, just clueless. No wonder his career has been a train wreck.

    Basketball would obviously be more of a job is he was to return now than it used to be, and i think he means that by playing nba ball he would have to give up business elsewehere, so corse the moneys gotta be right

    Guy's ego is huger than Tmac's. At least Lowry and Rafer don't dribble out the shot clock to zero and end up with a turnover.

    Who cares what he says? I respect him as person who overcame great odds to accomplish what he did. That's it.

    Sad, really. I started really following the Rockets at the beginning of the Franchise era, and as a young teenager who didn't really comprehend efficiency or things like that, his flashiness was amazing. Francis is just another Norma Desmond now.

    Marbury loves the game, which explains why he's playing for beans in China. Francis has a terrible attitude and it's sad that he thinks all he needs are a few weeks to get back in nba shape. I think if Francis truly loved the game then he'd be playing wherever he could

    T-Mac, Francis and Marbury should all ball in China. I think they'd appreciate it alot. Marbury really looked happy in the highlights of him playing in China. The fans treated him great and he was able to put up good numbers.

    Man, so sad to see what he has become. His pride, once a great asset, is totally betraying him. Just sad.

    Marbury looks like he likes the style of play in China, he could really play the street game!

    The dude has of the worst attitudes I ever seen. I remember watching a video of him a month into the season when we resigned him and he said he never saw a dnp before in the box score, and how disrespectful it was. Furthermore, he mentioned he had his first child in the summer and stopped working out to spend time with family :rolleyes: and he's surprised adelman benched his fat ass

    In short, everything that was ever wrong with Steve Francis.

    A shame, because you always knew he would give his all on the court. But everything else was too much to overcome. And when the athleticism fades.....

    I'm amazed that he and Yao got along so well. They seem like polar opposites.

    Yeah, but Yao has the edge cause he's changing diapers. 3 sets of 10 per day. Plus the cardio of running around the house.
