Exactly. It wasn’t just that he never had a front-court partner. After Marbury went nuts, he never had any help barring the one year with Cassell and Sprewell (that one year they went to the WCF, Cassell got hurt, and they lost to the Lakers in 6).
Terrell Brandon, Trenton Hassell, Marko Jaric, Ricky Davis, Eddie Griffin (no, not that one), Fred Hoiberg, Rashad McCants.
Outside of that one year, he was consistently surrounded with bums.
