Stephon Marbury defends Michael Vick

August 25, 2007 @ 3:31pm

One interesting development in the Michael Vick dog fighting story was when the NBA's self-proclaimed top point guard Stephon Marbury defended Michael Vick. His original comments on the subject were:

"I think, you know, we don't say anything about people who shoot deer or shoot other animals. You know, from what I hear, dogfighting is a sport. It's just behind closed doors."

Now I understand the point he was trying to make, but no one's ready to listen to it. It's like someone trying to say that 9/11 was our own country's fault -- on 9/15.

Starbury later backed off and added to his statements, saying:

"However, we don't react the same when other animals are being killed for sport or the sake of human pleasure," and, "He should be punished. However, he should be given a second chance, as others have received for more serious crimes."

That kind of back-pedaling would never have happened if Jeff Van Gundy was still the Knicks' coach. He was all about defense. You never back off on defense.
