For Old Time’s Sake: Starbury

Before the benching, the crying, the RnB…before ALL THE DRAMA, Stephon Marbury was an assassin on the court. Drafted by Milwaukee and promptly traded to the T-Wolves for Ray Allen, Steph quickly rose to super-stardom alongside KG as they formed one of the most dynamic duos of the late 90s. Steph, AI, Ray Allen, Kobe, among others… what a draft class. Steph’s stops in Phoenix and Jersey were successful and we all know about NY. Let’s appreciate what he contributed.

    awesome. unfortunately, younger fans have come to know him for eating vaseline and getting a star tattooed on his head, but he really was a top notch PG at one point.

    So skilled but the ego.

    I like that it was a mix and not a top 10 plays.
    Now can i get a Steve Smith Mix ??? People just know him from NBA tv but Steve was great. What you know about it ???

    Love the Guerrila Black song (“Trixx”) from NBA Street Vol. 3

    Great moments. I remember the good times. Not a fan of the mix.

  • Darius (Eastern Michigan’s Future)

    If the NBA hadnt put n a salary cap he wouldve stayed in MIN. Also he messed up his career tryin 2 bring winning back to his hometown

  • Overtime

    He even had a good season in New York

  • Clipperfan

    So many memories..truly wish his career could have had a better ending.

    I can’t help but think of Derrick Rose. Sorry.

  • SpaceJam

    This is just his section from anklebreakers street series. He was raw though, and should’ve stayed in Minesota.

  • PlanetAsia14

    That trick on Vlade… CLASSIC. Going to miss you Starbury, goodluck in China!

  • kousinkar

    Pure jump-shots from halfcourt. Look at the elevation. Unreal.

  • jedi420

    If only he stayed in Minny with KG..

  • Martey

    I remember how he dominated at Georgia Tech. Same time AI was running things with the Hoyas and Camby had the refuse to lose team out in Umass. Although he was exciting with KG, his best times were with the Suns and the Nets, as far as the peak of his game. He actually developped a finger roll when he was with Phoenix. Nasty!

  • MikeC.

    I remember actually being excited when he got traded to the Knicks. Too bad.

  • MikeC.

    Can we get a Patrick Ewing retrospective? He got dunked on a lot because he was always coming over to protect the rim. He also had a boatload of huge rejections and some pretty powerful posterizations of his own. Show P-Ew some love SLAM!!!


    How about some Starbury TV for oldtime sake?

  • pdoubleog

    shouts to dma. i get derrick rose too. steph was my man growing up. probably the first hs all american i knew of. got me into slam mag, basketball, and the whole nine. followed him before the vaseline footage, and i still check up on him now. someone should up some video of steph vs. iverson in college. awesome.

  • guytoofly

    “The Marbury man hops inside for two more!”

    The alley-oop was 2.41 is still the most ridiculous finish I’ve ever seen. The commentators are like “whaaaaat, in the world was THAT Steph?!” LOL

  • http://slamonline.com tealish

    1st, lol @ old Vlade and young Yao.
    2nd, how did Stephon go from that to Vaseline consumption?

  • sample

    how about the TNT men, those players that are now commentators on tv.

    That half-court jumpshot was mental. Wow.

  • KB
