Stephon Marbury Wants to Stay with the New York Knicks

Maybe Stephon Marbury just wanted to see LeBron score 50.For whatever reason (and he never really elaborated) the Knicks’  prodigal point guard finally ended the Where’s Waldo-like suspense about his whereabouts by gracing his team, the Garden and reporters with his presence Wednesday after reports and speculation that he’s no longer welcome. He just didn’t clarify much about his status other than he isn’t happy with Isiah Thomas writing him off for next season, but still wants to play in New York.Wearing a salmon, bone and beige houndstooth sport jacket, the Coney Island native watched LeBron James go for a half a century (48 in the final three quarters) from the front row of the bench, several seats down from Thomas, in Cleveland’s 119-105 victory over the Knicks.
