Marbury May Miss Two Months

Knicks Rumors & News

UPDATE: Brian Lewis of the Post reports that Marbury plans to visit Dr. Bill Hamilton today and expects to be diagnosed with bone spurs in his sore left ankle. If so, the injury would sideline him for two months. When asked when he was made aware that the guard’s ankle was a problem, Isiah Thomas replied, “It was (Saturday). That was the first time I was aware of it.”

More drama from the land of Stephon Marbury, if you can stomach it.

On Friday, Marbury vented to the media about his frustration with his role on the team, telling reporters:

“I didn’t get paid the money I got paid to do what I’m doing now…I got paid to be a scoring guard. … Now I’m playing more of a passive role.”

Either way, I suppose this is good news for Mets fans…for now.

Giants Rumors & News

I have to dispense with the usual ‘Kudos & Wet Willies’ format this morning. As far as the New York Giants are concerned, there are only ‘kudos’ to be handed out today, as they revel in ousting Dallas and reaching the NFC Championship Game.

In Dallas, there are plenty of ‘Wet Willies,’ to be handed out — and plenty of questions to be asked. We will leave all of that to those who write about the Cowboys, however.

Let’s focus on Big Blue, and this amazing run they are on that has the Giants within a victory of their fourth Super Bowl appearance.

I’m still amazed that the Giants won the game, considering the situation. A depleted secondary, a pass rush that couldn’t get to Tony Romo most of the game, the inability to contain Marion Barber. Yet, somehow they found a way.

Resilient, determined, workman-like and gutty are words that come to mind to describe this team, and that’s a credit to Tom Coughlin. Quite often it isn’t pretty, …
