i wont say anything until i see a source. Being a guy, I don't doubt this story since it sounds legitimate in this day and age.HEY YOU GUYS I FOUND THIS ON THE INTERNET TODAY ABOUT THE CASE
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS HAD IT ON THEIR SITE.
Y'ALL GOTTA CHECK THIS OUT!!
Nervous Knicks star Stephon Marbury took the stand today in the explosive $10 million sex-harassment suit that's rocking the Garden and admitted he lured one of the female accuser's subordinates into his car.
Marbury did not say explicitly they had sex as they sat parked outside a Manhattan strip joint, as fired Knick exec Anucha Browne Sanders has claimed.
"We got together right across the street," Marbury testified in Manhattan Federal court.
The point guard made the admission after Browne Sanders, who claims Knicks coach Isiah Thomas fired her in January 2006 for daring to hire a lawyer, broke down on the stand for the first time in the bruising trial.
Browne Sanders grew weepy as she described how the intern, a St. Johns University student, was subjected to a filthy come-on by Marbury's cousin, Hassan Gonsalves. Browne Sanders said the intern told her she later wound up in Marbury's car and the two had sex.
"Anucha, if it was anyone else I would have walked away," the intern said, according to Browne Sanders. "I felt like I had to."
Wiping away tears, Browne Sanders added, "She basically did whatever he asked her to do. She considered it to be consensual because she agreed to get in the car."
Dressed in a cream-colored plaid jacket with a red hankie sticking out of his breast pocket, Marbury fidgeted and avoided looking at Browne Sanders as he sat hunched over the microphone.
Marbury said he did not know that the intern, who was at the strip club celebrating her birthday with friends, was drunk during their encounter in April 2005. He was prevented from getting into the salacious details by the judge.
Marbury admitted calling Browne Sanders a "bitch" after she refused to give him more game tickets for his friends and family.
"She told me that this is not Phoenix or New Jersey, we're not doing things like that here," Marbury said, referring to the places where previously played professional basketball.
Afterward, as Marbury raced to a blue Rolls-Royce trailed by reporters, he called the trial a "tough situation" and refused to speculate on the possible outcome. "It's not for me to judge," he said.
Marbury tried to change the subject by making fun of the reporters' ties and shoes, noting that he was wearing expensive tan lace-ups, then drowning out the pesky questions by breaking into song.
"I got some new Starburys that are coming out," Marbury said before disappearing, a pitch for his reasonably-priced basketball shoes.
Earlier, Browne Sanders, a 44-year-old former Northwestern University basketball star who is the Knicks' former marketing vice-president, described how Gonsalves allegedly harassed Decker in Nov. 2005.
"You look good in those pants," Gonsalves allegedly said, according to Sanders. "I bet that p---y looks good too."
Browne Sanders said that the intern told her about the sleazy incident and later admitted, "I didn't tell you everything." Then she related the story of her encounter with Marbury.
The intern said Marbury and Gonsalves were also at the strip club where she was celebrating her birthday and that - over the objections of her friends - she accepted a ride back to St. Johns from Gonsalves.
The intern, according to Browne Sanders, said that when she climbed out of Gonsalves' vehicle Marbury pulled up in his and said, "Are you getting in, or not?"
Browne Sanders said she told Garden President Steve Mills about the encounter between Marbury and the intern and complained that she heard from others that Marbury had called her a "black bitch."
"I want you to make it stop," Browne Sanders said she told Mills.
Mills, Browne Sanders testified, warned her that if she didn't stay quiet Thomas would start rumors she was having an affair with MSG executive Jeff Nix.
"Steve, is that a threat?" Browne Sanders, a married mother of three, claims she told Mills. "Do I need to find a lawyer?"
In earlier testimony, Browne Sanders said Thomas, a two time NBA champ and Hall of Famer, was a foul-mouthed bully who hampered her efforts to get players to turn out for corporate events. She said that when she complained about Thomas's tirades to Mills, he told her to "accommodate him."
Browne Sanders also testified that Thomas made her feel uncomfortable by telling her "I'm in love with you" after beating her in a game of horse. Garden lawyer Ronald Green told jurors Browne Sanders lied about sex harrassment.
MAN, MAN, MAN -JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE TO COME UP FOR AIR!!!
I just want to see if he really used the courtroom as ad space for his crappy sneakers. If that's true.. Let's waive this idiot's contract.
On a personal note, I have a sister, and stories like this make me want to kill people that use their "power" for sex.
