Stephon Marbury vs. Larry Brown

Stephon Marbury vs. Larry Brown

New York Knicks 2006

Stephon Marbury earns the distinction of being the only player to make this list twice. His problems with Larry Brown-who is notorious for his hard-headedness with point guards-stemmed from Marbury’s belief that Brown wasn’t letting Steph be himself on offense. Brown countered that the team sucked, and his supposed “star” did not care to shoulder any blame for that. The back-and-forth was a nagging theme for the Knicks throughout their brutal 2005-06 campaign that ended in a 23-59 record and Brown being fired at season’s end. Marbury stayed, though, and became a thorn inside of Brown’s successor, Isiah Thomas.
