This was Thomas’ signature move with the Knicks. Marbury came into the team in a trade with the Suns in 2004, and along with Penny Hardaway, was acquired for a package that included Antonio McDyess, Maciej Lampe, Howard Eisley Charlie Ward, and two draft picks. He had five years and $91 million left on his contract at the time, which made him one of the highest-paid players in the NBA.
“Starbury’s” tenure with the Knicks came with dissappointing play on the court, a sexual harassment scandal off of it, and a grand total of zero Knicks playoff wins. His contract was eventually bought out in 2009 after he was banned from team premises.
