2. Stephon Marbury

It is not easy being a promising point guard hailing from NYC. As soon as you show any discernible talent, people start comparing you with NYC powerhouses such as Kenny Anderson or Mark Jackson or point guards who ended up leading the Knicks such as Walt Frazier. And this is exactly what happened to Stephon Marbury while he was still in high school.

While still playing for Abraham Lincoln High School, he became one of the subjects of a book for heaven’s sake. When he went to college, he didn’t really live up to the expectations. Then, come the 1996 draft, he was taken at #4 by the Milwaukee Bucks who traded him to the Minnesota Timberwolves straight away.

He did well in his first three years in Minnesota but he really exploded in the New Jersey Nets. Finally, he ended up in “his” Knicks where his numbers dropped off. Still, he remained one of the most renowned point guards in the league. He never delivered anything close to a title. Oh that’s right, he won three titles in China. Meh.
