Stephon Marbury Takes NBPA’s Advice Not to Train with Old H.S.


Knicks guard Stephon Marbury backed off Friday on a plan to practice with his old high school team while he’s not getting playing time with New York.

Marbury had expressed interest Thursday in practicing with his alma mater, Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, to stay in shape while he’s stuck on the bench for the Knicks.

"I’m not going to do it," Marbury said Friday. "I spoke to the Players’ Association and they said it wouldn’t be a good idea."
