08:03 AM ET 11.05 | With the season underway, where is Kenyon Martin? [Martin] doesn't know why he still can't find a job in the league. He helped the Los Angeles Clippers during their playoff run last season. His knee issues of the past no longer seem to trouble him. And he's even willing to take a contract for the league minimum. So why hasn't any team called wanting to sign him? "There is a notion about me that is not accurate at all -- I don't know who started it or where it came from -- that people can't control me," Martin told Yahoo! Sports. "I don't understand. Have I had my issues like a lot of other people? Yeah. But I'm getting back that people think they can't control me, that if I don't play I'm going to explode, or I can turn a locker room."

It's not like you haven't been a locker room cancer in the past, Kenyon...

NOW he says he's willing to accept the veteran's minimum. That position has changed more often than Romney's.

Before the Knicks signed Sheed, I wanted KMart, but unlike he's now presently saying "he'd play for the minimum, he wasn't say that". If there's a way for the Knicks to still sign him, I'd take him up on the minimum offer. We could always use an ever present thug in the line to calm down the Wades and Haslem's of the world.

Anyways, where all the chatter about the Knicks ain't this and the Knicks ain't dat, we running up in cats faces, and we're winning and all dat. Yeah Melo is a hog, and J.R's a bum, we already caught two vic's, and we're puttin it on'em son. Yeah we playin wit a bucha ole men, hey look, we'll try anything if it'll git us a win. Yeah, yeah, Heat, Celtics so dey say, the Knicks ain't having it, the game dey all gotta play. Apple...and I'm out!

I am more surprised it took teams that long to figure out this guy is garbage and did not deserve those overpriced contracts.. Hopefully You saved ur Pennies Kmart , my guess is you didn't, and You will be suing your uncle , cousin or some family member for mismanaging your money like these other baffoons We here about on a daily basis.

I believe he would be on a NBA team if not for his contract demands; and rightfully so; if you feel strongly about your worth to a team or organization then stick to your guns, but it will cost you if your desire is to play.

Just wondering why wade donated his salary to Vic's of hurricane and not one knick stepped up and did the same! Also why it's largely ignored by media.every one of the Knicks should have donated salary for that first game ESP considering Miami let em win!
