No Clippers game tonight, but this box score is just too delicious to ignore.
The Knicks starting backcourt of Stephon Marbury and Steve Francis combined to score 5 points on 1 for 10 from the field.
A little quick math:
Marbury - Salary $17,275,781
Francis - Salary $15,070,000
Divide the 2006-2007 salary by 82 games in a season, and then by the number of points scored in this game (2 for Marbury, 3 for Francis), and Marbury was paid $105,340 per point, while Francis made a much more reasonable $61,260 per point.
The Knicks are a train wreck, we all know that. But these guys once had talent, right? I mean, I never got the whole '3 straight All-Star Game starts' thing for Francis, but he used to be able to make a friggin' shot from time to time. Same with Marbury. And I knew they were a monumentally bad pairing, but you'd think they could play in parallel, essentially ignoring each other, and score more than 5 combined points.
