More Italy Talk

From Marc Berman's blog, Stephon Marbury has returned to discussing a possible future in Italy, and now he's getting specific.

"People just didn't understand and didn't know (last summer)," said Marbury, who will be in Coney Island Sunday when his summer kids basketball league holds its Finals at Surfside Gardens. "When I made comments about playing overseas people took it out of perspective, thought I was talking about leaving while still playing for the Knicks. It was turned into something negative about going to Italy. Now it seems it's OK.

"Why wouldn't you want to play basketball, still make money and live in a place that's beautiful," Marbury added. "Milan is definitely where I want to play basketball at. That's where I fell in love with Italy."

Wow. That's an almost startling degree of logic coming from a man who once called Zach Randolph a "lefty southpaw". The guy's right. After all the grief we gave him last summer, he's looking like a regular soothsayer this time around. Although I  do think it's time for Marbury to be out the door, I desperately wish for him to latch on somewhere else. Steph, above all else, loves basketball, and deserves to keep playing. More power to him if he gets to take his game overseas and delight the crowds in Italy.
