Stephon Marbury Wants to Train with Old High School Team

And since Mike D’Antoni has buried Marbury on the Knicks bench, the veteran point guard said Thursday that he might train with the boy’s basketball team at Brooklyn’s Abraham Lincoln High School to maintain his conditioning and keep his game sharp.

"I think I’m going to start practicing with my high school team," Marbury said after practice Thursday in Greenburgh. "Seriously. I’ve already called the coach to see if I can run up and down with the guys and at the same time help teach the younger guys the NBA game."

Seriously? This may just be a case of "Steph Being Steph" and having a little fun in the midst of a bizarre and sad point of his career.
