Stephon Marbury is hurting

by The Cavalier on October 25, 2006 · 2 comments

It was one of the inevitible moments of the 06-07 NBA season, and it came before the thing even started:

Stephon Marbury has an odd pain in one of his feet, specifically his heel. (We’re not sure which one – there’s no hardcore reporting around here.)

Why’s this significant – well, of course it’s because of Starbury’s Starbury shoes – the $15 model he claims are just as good as the $100+ ones most players suit up in.

Steph’s response is the obvious one.

“My shoe?” Marbury replied. “It’s not because of my shoe.”

“People are going to say what they want to say,” said Marbury, who missed last night’s preseason game against Philadelphia. “I know what’s going on.”

He knows, but he’s not saying.

Maybe Starbury just likes being mysterious, maybe he enjoys being coy, or maybe his heel is burning so badly that the pain doesn’t allow him to reveal the precious information of what’s actually going on.

The thing we wonder is as follows – why is Steph wearing these things? How hard would it be to make like a high quality version them – like ones that look exactly the same, but actually have the padding and support necessary to avoid things like sore heels, sore ankles, sore toes, and sore other parts of the feet?

Sure, you’d be fooling and lying to the kids, but isn’t that what life is really all about anyway?

(BTW the Knicks won last night – both AI and Steph were out.)

This photo made my day. Why? I’m an anti-Zeke Knicks fan (sad, but true), Chris Webber is my longtime boyfriend (don’t worry, I’m a girl), and I used to play Super Mario Bros. every day when I was in junior high.

Oh, and regarding Steph: It’s gotta be the shoes.

I’m very please that Marbury is doing the low-priced shoe thing. Keep up the good work! and thanks so much! … KW
