Wally Not Apologetic- "that's part of the game"Cold Spring Harbor's Wally Szczerbiak says playing at Madison Square Garden is his favorite game of the year "by far."
In fact, the Timberwolf star said, the first thing he does when he gets Minnesota's schedule is circle the date on his calendar.
Stephon Marbury probably won't greet him with open arms the next time he visits.
Szczerbiak didn't apologize for setting the screen that knocked Marbury out of the yesterday's Garden clash. He didn't feel he needed to.
What Marbury described as "dirty," Szczerbiak called "legal." And while the Long Island native expressed sympathy for Marbury — who left the Knicks' 96-90 loss with 8:18 to go and the Knicks trailing by five — he insisted there was no intent.
"I guess it was a hard screen, but that's part of the game," Szczerbiak said of the play that left Marbury with a sprained left shoulder and questionable for tomorrow night's game in Chicago.
"It's the job of his teammates to let him know it's coming," Szczerbiak said.
