Everybody and his or her little brother has covered Stephon Marbury's rambling Web stream, so I won't bother to provide additional commentary on his continuing decent into babbling madness. What I will provide, however, is a few of my favorite quotes from World Wide Steph. I invite you to submit your own favorite quotable(s) from his recent Internet rant. I'll collect the best submissions and append them to this post in a special fan section.

"No, I'm not the best player in the NBA. Kobe Bryant is the best player. I don't care about the NBA Those days are over with."

"I'm going to set up a foundation for the world. I'm going to take the money and start building cities all over the world. I'm a comet. My man told me I'm a comet. I said, 'I’m a comet?'"

"My kids are like: Daddy, why are you on the bench? Why ain't daddy in the game?"

"I had to overconversate."

"Where would I want my jersey retired? Boston."

"Chris Paul, he got power and he slither, he slither...he move real silky like a snake."

"I'll be a bum for seven dollars and a blowjob? Hahahahaaha. They tryin to put me in a box! Its impossible!"

"Jeanie Buss, I love her with all my heart. I’d take my heart out and give it to her. That’s how ill she is. I love that lady."

"I love Canada. Ohhhh Can-a-da.... I love that song. I love your anthem. I love hearing it. Its fresh."

"You've gotta thank 'em for a bowel movement. You've gotta thank 'em for a bowel movement."

"Am I jealous of Tracy McGrady and Jason Kidd? Jealous of what?"

"Marbury you suck and won't win a championship? Ok, you still talking about basketball and I'm talking about LIFE."

We all knew Starbury was crazy, but how many of you knew for a fact until now that he is crazier than Rodman and Crazy Pills put together?

Welcome to a new and frightening world.

Starbury is reality show gold waiting to be mined. If the Celtics are finished with him (aka his career is over), then some reality TV mogul needs to sign him immediately.

Blogger chris said...
Wild Yams: Starbury and Bill Walton would make an epic commentary team, with Artest and Barkley in studio for cleanup.

Make it happen.

Blogger Hillsolo said...
Before seeing this s**t, I was positive that it's just matter of time Artest will surpass him. After this, man... ron ron got no chance. Not even close.

"How did I hurt the Knicks? Tell me how I hurt the Knicks. (pause) Exactly. (laughs) The Knicks hurt you!"

Some of my favorite quotes from the insanity that was Marburython:

"You know what the MVP trophy is? Shiny shit!"

"Shoutout to Vegas. Shoutout to Barack Obama." (I loved that those two came right after one another).

"Leavin' New York...I was like a wounded animal."

"Man I sacrificed. Splinters on my ass. Crying. Having conversations in the mirror with myself."

On the phone with his wife (who I guess asked him what he was doing): "I'm workin', babeh."

"I don't talk about basketball. Basketball is just a game. Nothing more, nothing less. Just a game."

"I know one thing for sure, and two things for certain. EVERYBODY wanna be a 50 million dollar bum."

"How important is prayer? Man, you gotta stay prayed up. The enemy is always at your head."

There are so many, and it would take hours to list them all. Check out NBAMusings' transcript of the 24-hour one he did:

"You know what the MVP trophy is? Shiny shit!"

During this little diatribe, he also mentioned something along the lines of how the NBA is full of monkeys chasing the MVP aka the shiny shit, and how Steph would rather be the Most Valuable Person.

rubensborgers: You know, Big Mat probably got that from most of his Taco Bell Jennifer-like acquaintances. Not fair.

I really, really like Starbury. The dude is cool as shit. Crazy, yes... and strangely loveable.

I kept asking him "Are you going to get in the truck?" but he didn't bite.

Did get him to holla out to "In Yo Truck" at one point

Blogger Cubee said...
Crazy as it and this sounds, there is some poetic truth to his statements.
It's like he a has this consciousness that floats above the world, observes everything from above and then speaks to him.
He then mangles those words with his own street lingo and out comes...philosophy on crack.

Or maybe it's just good old crack.

"You know what the MVP trophy is? Shiny shit!"

Partly true. Primarily a popularity contest/it's your turn to win one this year.

...not that he was ever in danger of winning one.

"I know one thing for sure, and two things for certain. EVERYBODY wanna be a 50 million dollar bum."

I certainly do!

Blogger Cortez said...
How is it even possible to be humble and a raving egotistical publicity hound and the same time?

I know how...

You're a borderline sociopath with a less than stellar education (on any level) coupled with a stunning lack of awareness (self and others) of useful social norms.

...plus, those Starbury shoes suck ass.

Crazy Bread is some of the tastiest developmentally disabled bread out there.

If Marbury is Crazy Bread, and Artest is Crazy Pills, someone will have to come up with a nickname for an NBA player along the lines of "Crazy (insert name of beverage here)", to wash down the crazy pills and cleanse the palate of crazy garlic butter.

Speaking of quotable, Bawful has been quoted by Cavs: The Blog.

As soon as I saw the word I thought "hey wait a minute, didn't I read that here on basketbawful?" Keep up the good work bawful. Keep makin' up those words.

My favorite Starbury quote was from the press conference announcing his new sneaker line a few years back. Say what you want about the man, but selling decent cheap sneakers was a great thing, and it didn't escape him. He said, "The way the world is going, we need more people like me." Yes he did.
