What is Marbury's task on the team? He has done what they "told" him to do.
Come to camp in shape, start a couple of pre-season games, go on the inactive list, yada-yada.
D'antoni asked him would like to play tonight, he didn't call his number to go to the scorers table and Marbury refused or anything.
he merely "asked" him.
Man I wish I had a job where I make tons of money only to be asked "would you like to do this", and still get paid no matter if I say yes or no.
