The Marbury Family Re-union

Well, not exactly, but Stephon Marbury matches up against his cousin tonight in Madison Square Garden, freshman Sebastian Telfair. Story here...... Story #2

Here's Steph on going from high school to the pro's:

Marbury can't understand anyone who could question his cousin's decision to jump straight from Lincoln to the NBA. Marbury played a season of college ball at Georgia Tech. Telfair was selected 13th, the last pick in the lottery, by Portland and has worked his way into the rotation recently.

"If he would've gone to college, the ultimate goal is to get paid," Marbury said. "That's why people go to college to try to make something successful of themselves when they leave out of college. His goal was to make it to the NBA."
