In 1994's The Last Shot: City Streets, Basketball Dreams , author Darcy Frey offers potent evidence that the matchlessly bizarre personality of new Celtic Stephon Marbury dates back at least to early adolescence.
Brace yourselves, Boston, for the Starbury show, starring Stephon Marbury — perhaps the strangest pro-athlete ever to suit up in a New England uniform.
