that game is going to be pimp. Slam Dunk Contest and everything. EA Sports presents... NBA LIVE 2005
Anyway, the real reason I'm posting today is to say this: This is Why I Love Isiah Thomas
Here's an excerpt:
"Stephon Marbury was hoping for a sympathetic ear when he called his boss, Isiah Thomas, on Monday to talk about his struggles at the Olympics. What Marbury received instead was a heavy dose of reality. "Man, I feel like I'm playing like ---," Marbury told the Knicks' president. "No, you are playing like ---," Thomas fired back. "You're not playing like Stephon Marbury. Don't forget who you are. You're a 20-point, nine assists guy."
For five games, Marbury had been humbled by Carlos Arroyo, Shane Heal and Sarunas Jasikevicius and admitted he was having trouble adjusting to Larry Brown's ways. But after Marbury used the team's off day on Monday to refine his shooting and followed it up with a stern consultation with Thomas, the Coney Island point guard responded with the most prolific-scoring game in U.S. Olympic basketball history. Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Shaquille O'Neal included."
And THAT is why he will make my Knicks better. Let's Go Knicks baby!
(Don't hate, FUCKERS)
