Stephon Marbury made an appearance on the Mike'd Up show recently and made a bit of a spectacle of himself by having some fun with the host of the show.
Of course, Marbury, speaking euphemistically and metaphorically is being hounded by a self-righteous brigade of fools who are twisting his every word literally and unforgivingly.
Marbury is a generous soul who speaks a street dialect that plays right into the hands of the literalists. Marbury said "the Knicks could steal the trophy meaning of course that they aren't expected to win it and could sneak through the playoffs to snatch the prize. In the New York media they're playing it like an Ocean's Eleven heist.
During the interview his phone rang and and he said, "it's my other ho... it's my wife" which sounds to me like "it's my other home.. it's my wife." but again, the media is acting as though Marbury is doing Imus impressions.
He's a not ready for media spotlight baller - BFD. Yes he intentionally exagerates how much he'll get the ball into Randolph and Curry, so what?
Give the guy a break.

Here, dear readers, is the final resting place of all weary Knicks fans. Yes, here is where one comes when James Dolan extends yet another contract, when the Knicks trade for yet another ambulatory star, or when said fan simply hits 'rock' bottom. In short, "the ship be" eternally "sinking" here. Welcome aboard, rearrange the deck chairs as you please.
