This Week in Sports - November 12-16, 2007

With Stephon Marbury going AWOL, the Knicks' ship is sinking fast. See what else happened this week!

Sports News - Stephon Goes AWOL

In one of the more bizarre stories of the week, if not the year, is New York Knicks guard Stephon Marbury bolting on his team on Tuesday. Marbury became irate after being informed by his coach on the team plane to Phoenix that he was not going to start the next game against the Suns. The upset Marbury took the next flight back home to New York leaving his teammates to play without him. After a huge media controversy, Marbury took a flight to Los Angeles and re-joined the Knicks to play the Clippers on Wednesday night. This is the latest blow for the struggling Knicks who are now 2-5 as of Thursday.

Sports News - Bonds Indicted

After four years of investigating Barry Bonds, the home run king was finally indicted on perjury and obstruction charges. The 43-year-old Bonds is charged with lying to a federal grand jury about his steroid use. Bonds has maintained that he has never knowingly taken performance enhancing drugs. After being let go by the San Francisco Giants at the end of the season, Bonds is currently a free agent and has indicated he is not going to retire.

Sports News - Celtics Red Hot

So far, the Boston Celtics have lived up to their billing. Behind the dangerous trio of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, the C's have a perfect 7-0. Each one of those three All Stars are averaging over 20 points per game. After seven games last year, the Celtics were a dismal 1-6. Wow, what a difference one season makes!

    I think they should add a softball thread because guys play baseball but girls play softball. It would be nice to have somewhere to talk about softball.
