Jackson Weighs in on Marbury, Celtics

So, what do the Lakers think of Boston’s likely signing of Stephon Marbury and already completed deal with Mikki Moore to shore up a bench that was clearly lacking despite the team’s lofty 46-12 record?

Phil Jackson thinks that the Celtics helped themselves with both; he likes Starbury’s athleticism, shooting skill and ability to get shots on his own, and noted that Boston needed more length with the undersized Glen Davis and Leon Powe getting all the backup minutes in the frontcourt. L.A.’s head coach also mentioned that he didn’t expect Boston’s team chemistry to be affected due to its current strength in the locker room.
