While Knicks captain Stephon Marbury declined to discuss the ongoing Larry Brown saga, the star point guard from Coney Island was very clear about his own future, saying he wants to “die a Knick.”

“I want to be a Knick, I want to die a Knick,” Marbury told The Post in an exclusive Memorial-Day interview.

“If I ever was to be cremated, I’d want my ashes sprinkled on top of the Garden.”

“Playing here has always been my dream,” Marbury added. “I want to be in New York more than any place.”

He believes the current roster is playoff material, tons better than 23-59.

“I hope that every player on this team comes back next season,” Marbury said.

“I honestly mean that. Every player. I think we have a great team. I think it will be so much different next year.”

Replies Jon, “if the entire team returns, Marbury’s chances of dying a Knick should go up (as I assume Tommy Hoops will kill him.)”
