Stephon Marbury: Courtside At Knicks-Lakers Game

Yesterday there were rumors that Stephon Marbury was buying courtside tickets to attend the Knicks-Lakers game out in LA. Turns out those rumors were true, as Starbury showed up at the game last night. This is the first time Marbury has been in the same building as the NY Knicks since prior to Thanksgiving. At the game, Marbury had a chance to talk to reporters.

"I'm earning my check by doing nothing," Marbury said. "I'm enjoying it to the fullest. I can go in and out of the country when I want during the season. They'll make a decision when they're ready to make a decision. I'm getting healthy, adding two, three years to my career. This has been great for me, able to heal."

Asked why he attended, Marbury said, "I just wanted to see the game. I miss it a lot. It's the closest I can get to the game right now."


He's got a good point – I'd love $21 million for doing nothing.
