A lot of times people that criticize athletes really have no idea what’s going on. Especially on the internet, Stephon Marbury has turned into a caricature of an athlete and I think it’s a shame. We like to build them up just to tear them down, I guess.
Chris Webber has some great thoughts here and he’s completely on-point. None of us really know what the hell is going on. And although Quentin Richardson is closer to the situation and being on the Knicks is frustrating, it’s just a bad move to go out and fling mud at Marbury.
Here’s an excerpt from Q’s comments:
“He hasn’t played with us all year. Regardless of what you have going on with the organization or what you have going on with your coach or whatever — you’re not going to allow your teammates to be left out there the way we were basically being left out there.
This is directed at us regardless if you’re trying to stick it to whoever you’re trying to stick it to. At the end of the day we’re shorthanded, people are hurt
Once again, I don’t pay attention to [Marbury] because I don’t look at him as a teammate anyway.”
Is Q out of line or on point?
