Isiah and Marbury
We obviously have all the ingredients for a complete freaking disaster in New York: Stephon Marbury is angry and perhaps AWOL, Isiah Thomas is covering his rump … and according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Starbury has threatened to reveal some dark secrets about Zeke when told he’d be benched.
“Isiah has to start me,” Marbury fumed, according to the source. “I’ve got so much (stuff) on Isiah and he knows it. He thinks he can (get) me. But I’ll (get) him first. You have no idea what I know.”
And I’m not sure I want to know. Aww, who am I kidding? I guarantee at least a dozen reporters are staking out Steph as we speak type. (Seriously.) And with Starbury’s loose-lipped tendencies, this might actually happen. But the fact Zeke might have stuff on Steph? That actually frightens me. I mean, the stuff we know about Marbury is rather wild. There’s worse stuff Isiah knows about?!
The fact all these threats and everything happened on the team plane 10,000 feet above the breadbasket of America… man, this team needs a reality show. Ian O’Connor, a columnist for the Bergen Record, throws out an anonymously sourced claim that the mile-high argument came to blows! If you’re a Knicks fan, you have to believe this is going to get worse before it gets better.
