Stephon Marbury the Talk Show Host???


I hate it when celebrities snag all the jobs that "regular" people should get. For example, the fact that you see celebrities in allllll commercials imaginable pisses me off. My theory is, why pay a millionaire to endorse Sprite??? Coke products are so successful that you're really not going to gain more drinkers just b/c some celeb is throwin' back your product on TV. The "Coke" faithfuls are there not b/c of the famous guy on your commercial. SO why not pay an unknown face a couple hundred or thousand to get some exposure on the tube???

OK....Stephon Marbury is trying to sell his own TV talk show. Marbury has filmed a handful of demo shows, including a one-hour interview with Kobe Bryant. His reps have been shopping the show around. I can't knock this, but damn. Why give this man his own show??? I'm sure that there's some recent college grad who's fit for TV, and would be perfect for a talk show, but doesn't have the proper outlets. He/She may even become an overnite success....like Oprah or something. However, no one will take a chance on him/her because too many chances are being taken on those who're already established. I just don't get it.

Stephon Marbury needs to worry about his sorry ass team. They only had 1 of the worst seasons in franchise history and they just got rid of 1 of the best coaches in the game. For who Isiah Thomas lil bitch ass. So while Stephon is around here trying to hog all the spotlight he needs to focus on what got him his big pay day. Playing basketball and getting his sorry ass team out of the NBA basement.By the way I think it would make more sense for him to own his own talk show instead of hosting it like be behind the scenes or something.He was onlt at Ga. Tech for 1 year so it's not like it was his major.

^^^ I agree. He needs to put all of his attn. on that garbage team, and figure out ways to make them better.

Geez, you've been writing about people I can't stand a lot lately. If there's one current NBA player from today I can't stand, it's Marbury. He's such a selfish prick. Nobody wants to listen to this guy talk.
