Jeff Van Gundy was on the Michael Kay show on 1050 ESPN Radio and made the point that right now Stephon has no leverage and the Knicks have all the leverage. The Knicks will be content with just letting him rot and paying him while Steph wants to get his money but still play. Because of this Steph needs something to put in his favor Van Gundy has this great idea, hire Lebron James agent, Leon Rose, and have him work on the contract.
If the Knicks want Lebron in 2010, which they obviously do, than they probably want to make really nice to Lebron's agent. This signing would put a little pressure on the Knicks to stop acting like douchebags and to just cut Marbury outright.
Now the odds of Marbury doing something intelligent like this is probably 1 in a million, but it is a bright idea.
