New York Knick fans and critics are a cranky bunch and are as likely to boo their team as to cheer. This is especially true when it comes to Knick's star Stephon Marbury who is often viewed as an uncoachable ballhog. But Marbury's $17 million salary hasn't made him forget growing up in Coney Island's projects.
