Maybe for some people.
Marbury is trying to change his image right now and trying to better himself. It probably isn't easy for someone going through such a transition. And its one thing to have quick interviews with the media pre, during, and post game or off the street, but how many times has Marbury been on TV in that kind of "talk show" setting? The only reason why I'm defending him, is he didn't seem like he was purposely trying to reck things or look like an idiot. Granted I agree he looked like a fool, but to me it was an honest mistake.
And even if he was a 20 year vet and 39 years old, sometimes speaking is not someones skill (see Shaq or GW Bush; I'm not trying to start a political argument here or bashing our president).
sorry if you work for people who would fire you for assuming you were high on the job... steph didn't seem high... he looked unprepared and nervous... not high... all we can do is ASSume he was high... but none of us have proof... so did the argument...
Steph aint necesarily high. He looked happy and one thing that should be no secret to anyone is that Stephon Marbury is not now, nor has he ever been an articulate guy.
He often interviews badly and I have wondered more than once wtf he was trying to say.
But lets love Stephon because he finally figured out what it is he needs to do to win with a team.
Yea, lets face it when it comes to Academia, Stephon is probably one of the dumbest athletes in the NBA. Only his cousin Telfair and perhaps Moses Malone rival him in looking profoundly uneducated as Marbury does.
-but hey, there athletes who cares right? They have more money than us, so I guess that means they beat the social system
i wasn't saying all that... there are tons of dumb guys in the league... but let's cut the bull**** and stop acting like steph said he wants to sleep with little boys or something...
I can't remember reading any article in the paper with a Steph quote and thinking he's uneducated.
I'm from Philly, and worked at the old Spectrum in the mid 80's.
I got the chance to meet him and even hung out with him (and several players from that '83 championship team) on a couple of occasions.
During his playing days, he was a horrible public speaker (he's a little better now), but he was no dummy.
He also happens to be a very nice guy with a tremendous sense of humor.
