"Stephon Marbury" and "Nets" in the same sentence -- is and has been a recipe for disaster ... for a long time. Nothing good ever happened... and "PeaceStar" has done it again.
The Chinese Basketball star -- and Beijing icon -- is tweeting about the signing of Jeremy Lin, essentially saying the Nets only signed Lin to tap into the Asian market and fill their "expensive" arena.
From the beginning. He can play but he was a puppet. He came from no where so to say when I have boys way better. https://t.co/Pt34uM2M9p— I AM PEACE STAR (@StarburyMarbury) July 1, 2016
And there's this!
They have to try to draw some type of revenue constantly. That's an expensive arena they got out there. https://t.co/zp8uY7wYcC— I AM PEACE STAR (@StarburyMarbury) July 1, 2016
Maybe somebody forgot to tell ‘Starbury' that Lin had an extremely productive season with Charlotte, or that the Brooklyn Nets could really use him to fill their point guard role, especially during an offseason where solid point guards are tough to come by. Not that it would matter, apparently. It's always about Steph.
The NBA is a clever Corp. my jersey was the number 1 selling jersey for 2 years straight and wasn't a all star. https://t.co/MJdLHWfro8— I AM PEACE STAR (@StarburyMarbury) July 1, 2016
And maybe, just maybe, Stephon Marbury would, despite his denials, like to be back in New York, and be what Isaiah Whitehead will be this season: the first Coney Islander, first Brooklynite to play for the hometown team.
