Where are they now - Stephon Marbury

One current Jacket PG gets ACC player of the week, and one former Jacket guard gets NBA player of the week.

Marbury led the Knicks to a 2-1 record, as he averaged 32.3 points, 8.7 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 2.33 steals in games against Orlando, Minnesota and New Jersey last week. The 6-2 guard from Georgia Tech became the first Knick since Patrick Ewing in the 1996-97 season to score 30-or-more points in three consecutive games.

Marbury poured in 34 points on 13-of-21 shooting to lead the Knicks past the Magic in Orlando on December 27. The following night in New York, Marbury posted a double-double of 32 points and 11 assists as the Knicks knocked off the Timberwolves 100-87.
