That's gonna leave a mark
I now have a huge man-crush on Mike D'Antoni. People he hung a DNP-CD on Starbury in the Knickerbockers' opener. In plainer English, he buried Stephon Marbury on the bench, giving him zero playing time! Wow! It was a surprise too. D'Antoni had announced that chunky Eddie Curry was eating pine until he got in shape (he too was DNP-CD'd), but the expectation was that Marbury would not be starting but would be getting substantial minutes.
The Knicks beat the Heat and it seems like a new day might be fixin' to dawn in MSG. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo sports says that the Starbury burial is likely permanent.
