All things come in circles…But should they?
I was at a Sunday lunch talking about the best ESPN commercials of all-time, and I immediately thought of the Kevin Garnett/Stephon Marbury classic “Tastefully Done” video. However, I didn’t think that the Celtics would try to go for a reunion in 2009 a day later.
How can anyone in right mind justify how bad Marbury has torn NBA franchises from his beginning years with the Minnesota TimberWolves?
Just look at the Wolves, Nets, Suns, and Knicks, and how each team actually was destroyed by Marbury’s presence and developed into something when he left. And now you’re going to add him to a Championship team that is on the brink of collapse…Who can justify this move?
Of course, we shouldn’t blame his relationship skills, he just couldn’t stand the weather.
Yet, if Stephon Marbury is given a shot with the Celtics, you not only have to wonder how many chances that today’s modern athlete will be given for God-given talent, but also how low in terms of long-term cohesion do you really consider for your organization when you bring an absolute proven ‘tumor’ into a drive for a common goal. What kind of message are you sending?
All that said, the only thing that I can think of as good in Stephon Marbury’s career is the classic ESPN ‘The Mag’ commercial. As for the rest, take a look at the tattoo on his head and think twice…
Keep it up “KG”…Hopefully, this won’t happen. You went through enough in Minnesota.
Dear, Danny Ainge, Please don’t.
