    Doesn't surprise me, Those marathon streams were really disturbing, I really thought the guy couldn't sink any lower, and was about to off himself on camera anytime

    I can't believe he managed to bounce back as well as he did in another country

    very cerebral guy with a tough path in life that always tried to hold on to worthy aspirations.

    all the guy was trying to do was win and help those less fortunate. The Starbury shoe line was the same idea Hakeem had that failed so miserably. Starbury actually got some traction with the idea at first. considering that kids are murdered over sneakers nowadays, having a "cool" affordable shoe is still a great idea.

    Good to see him recover. Marbury is one of the good guys, imo.
