Stephon Marbury told The Post yesterday that he is done with the NBA. He will never get a second chance with the Knicks like Isiah Thomas, whose NBA life was resuscitated by James Dolan on Friday.
"Good luck, New York," Marbury said wryly in reacting to Thomas' return to the Knicks as a part-time consultant. "Good luck, New York."
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Do I detect a note of sarcasm from the one they call The Starbury?
Stephon Marbury and Isiah Thomas were once allies with the New York Knicks. Thomas traded for Marbury, a former New York high school star. And for a while, the two were connected at the hip.
Once the losing started, once the negative press began, once Thomas' sexual harassment case made national headlines, they turned on each other.
Marbury refused to support Thomas and the organization during the sexual harassment case. The problems then spilled over to the basketball court, and the two had a confrontation on the team plane. For their shenanigans, both were run out the NBA.
There is a difference between these two: Thomas is getting a second chance, Marbury is not.
Perhaps, Marbury's sarcasm is really sour grapes.
