So, this kind of makes my day. A guy saw Stephon Marbury sitting at a bus stop in L.A., and he did the first thing that came to mind: he asked him to do some improv scenes with him. As he wrote to SLAM Online:
i was driving home… and i spot stephon marbury sitting at the bus stop talking into his blackberry half a mile from my house. confused as to why starbury would be riding the bus – had the economy really bitten him that badly?
i grabbed my camera and hustled back to where i saw him – turns out he was waiting on his car to be fixed at a shop right behind him – and asked him if he’d shoot some improv stuff with me at the bus stop. i was a little surprised he said yes but he did and we rolled.
Episodes 1 and 2 of “Me & Stephon” are below. I know Marbury is insane and destroys every team he joins, but it’s hard not to like him here. He really comes off as a regular guy. Just an average Joe who might nail an intern in his truck, you know?
