Everybody Hate Starbury
Training camp is barely underway and Stephon Marbury is already causing headaches for everyone in Knick Land. You’ve already seen the reports of his Media Day comments. Now his teammates are struggling to find ways to say they want him gone.
…”I just feel like, I guess right now that’s the story – if he’s gonna be here or if he’s not, or does he come off the bench if he is here and all that stuff. That’s all fine and well, but we just need to focus more on winning games.”
“We should be more focused on restoring order to the Knicks,” [Jamal] Crawford said.
That can’t happen, and won’t happen, as long as No. 3 – “Coney Island’s Finest,” as the tattoo on his left biceps says – remains the center of the universe. “It’s bigger than just one person, this organization,” Crawford said.
Newsday’s Ken Berger reports that coach Mike D’Antoni polled the team on Starbury and he lost in a landslide. They want him gone yesterday.
Berger already has Starbury praying for him so that means his mind is somewhere else already. Take the malcontent and add a little sciatica and we have the makings of another quality Knickerbocker season. This should end well for Knick haters such as myself.
