If you can't tell, I'm trying to avoid the Isiah Thomas trial, but this news probably has to be up for discussion. Whatever the outcome may be, it sucks that the Knicks have to get this kind of attention going into the season, and I'd rather not focus on this too much. I will, however, go ahead and mention this bit about Stephon Marbury, who testified today:
Marbury tried to change the subject by making fun of the reporters' ties and shoes, noting that he was wearing expensive tan lace-ups, then drowning out the pesky questions by breaking into song.
"I got some new Starburys that are coming out," Marbury said before disappearing, a pitch for his reasonably-priced basketball shoes.
Yup, that's Steph. Again, feel free to comment, but I don't have much to say about this ugly business.
UPDATE: I know I said I wouldn't talk about this, but this profile says that Marbury has been married since 2002 and had a kid in 2005...which would make him married with a child at the time of this incident. He may be in more trouble than it seems. I can't seem to find any articles that make mention of this.
