New York Knicks

Stephon Marbury is planning on taking the Italian basketball world by storm

Hey, Italy, he’s all yours!

If you’ve been keeping up with the life and times of Stephon Marbury then you know that he’s been seemingly going insane of late. Maybe it’s from an overexposure to cheap sneaker materials or maybe it’s a crack addiction, but something is causing Starbury to say some pretty strange things. The latest head scratcher came when Marbury told the New York Post that when his contract with the Knicks expires in two years, he was going to leave the NBA and play in Italy!

I’m not just thinking of doing it, I’m going to do it,” Marbury vowed yesterday. “My wife loved it there. It’s like a [David] Beckham thing.

Oh, but the insanity doesn’t stop there for Steph; he really went nuts when asked if he’d be able to bring a championship to NY before heading overseas.

We’re on the verge right now in my mind.

In reality, we all know that the Knicks need a lot more than Zach Randolph to become a title contender, but we believe Marbury when he says they’re on the verge. After all, he did qualify the statement by saying that it was “in my mind” and we all know that his mind can be an odd, odd wonderland.
