“Stephon MarburyÂ has carried the stigma of being a selfish player for the majority of his 12-year NBA career. Now, his older cousin is saying Marbury is even more self-centered off the court and is dishing details on theÂ KnicksÂ point guard in his autobiography, “The Beautiful Struggle,” the Daily News has learned. The book, due out in late September from Xlibris Publishing, has former NBA pro and current overseas player Jamel Thomas alleging that Marbury ruined a potential deal for him with theÂ Minnesota Timberwolves. In it, Thomas includes a conversation that he allegedly had withÂ Kevin Garnett, in which Garnett tells him how Marbury’s presence on the team spoiled his cousin’s chances of signing with Minnesota.”
“The Beautiful Struggle” was the title of a good Talib Kweli album. Now “The Beautiful Struggle” is a belly-achingÂ autobiography of Stephon Marbury’s cousin laced with haterade.Â
Call me crazy but, blaming others for not making it in the league just might be the reason why you never made.
