SWAN SONG GOING GOING GONE Marbury Shoes THOSE WERE THE DAYS

How far the Mighty FALL

wasn’t it only yesterday

THOUSANDS were

lining up at Steve &

Barry’s to buy their

MARBURY’S

Stephon Marbury was on TOP of the World. His new line of well priced sneakers were a BIG hit. Steve & Barry’s the EXCLUSIVE seller of Marbury footwear were flying HIGH just as much. Steve & Barry’s was about to become the Starbucks of footwear and apparel. With stores EVERYWHERE and no one would be more RESPONSIBLE than New York Knicks Point Guard Stephon Marbury. Coached by The Great Isiah Thomas.

REMEMBER BACK THEN

it wasn’t long ago but now

But NOW Steve & Barry’s is in BANKRUPTCY And Stephon Marbury is going going GONE. Not only likely from the Knicks but from the entire NBA. Yes the never ending saga of the Mighty FALLING. NOT that either Steve & Barry’s or Stephon Marbury deserve it.

UNLESS you think they do. It’s your choice. The critics will argue neither were really what they appeared to be. Special with something unique to sell. ON THE OTHER HAND you can argue both WERE even if they no longer are. YOUR choice.

Whatever side you take if it matters at all neither will EVER be the same again that is a Fact. Might Steve & Barry’s somehow survive as a tiny company with a few stores. Maybe but probably not. Although that is the BEST they can hope for. Can Marbury and his HUGE salary survive the NEW regime at the Knicks. Virtually impossible. Will another NBA team pay Marbury the MEGA-bucks to “play” for them. No thanks and even less likely that Marbury comes with BAGGAGE. Unsavory baggage his tantrums, injuries and no shows with the Knicks.

We could go on and one

with needless detail

about both but WHY

bother we gave you

all you need to know

now trust us you have

better things to do

( or certainly should )

with your time so

do we so Bye Bye

until tomorrow

Marbury ” SEEMS LIKE ONLY YESTERDAY ”
