PLAXICO BURRESS MAY CUT HIMSELF FROM THE NEW YORK GIANTS » due to the recent self-inflicted injury that recently occurred over the weekend. After shooting himself Saturday he turned himself in for not having proper weapon possession papers. Not only is he facing years in prison, he also might be facing the fact that he’ll no longer be a player on the Giants. This has not been the only offense Burress has committed during his time with the Giants. The NFL policy on gun possession includes:
“And if you violate a public law covering weapons, for example possession of an unlicensed firearm, you are not only subject to discipline, including suspension from playing, but also subject to criminal prosecution.”
This may be the end for Burress but he has not been convicted of any charges as of yet. His career may be battered but could also still be intact. Only time will tell…
LOS ANGELES LAKERS HAVE BEEN ON A WINNING SPREE » and is showing no sign of slowing down. Kobe Bryant has also been considered a ‘team player’ and even sat out for a full 4th quarter during the last recent games. Despite the lucky tip-in basket made by the Indiana Pacers allowing them to win by 1 point (118-117) yesterday against the Indiana Pacers. That currently leave the winning statistics at wins to losses by the Lakers (14 – 2). I think I smell a shiny new championship ringing calling Kobe’s name for a rematch versus last year’s season.
STEPHON MARBURY’S DISPUTE WITH THE NEW YORK KNICKS » is still an remaining and almost closing issue in the franchise about Marbury’s salary. After he was suspending for supposedly refusing to play Saturday because of the dispute of his 20.1 million dollar contract with the Knicks, which costed him an extra $400,000. Marbury denied that he had refused to play but it still cost him a large sum of cash. Team president, Donnie Walsh, had a comment on the recent benching:
“After meeting with Stephon and his representative this afternoon, we have directed Stephon not to participate in practice or attend games until further notice.” Said Walsh.
It’s time for Marbury to get it together, it’s not worth it.
