Marvin Roberts Rumors

All NBA Players
Well, at least there’s one New York City native who doesn’t think the Knicks hiring back Isiah Thomas is such a disaster. Brooklyn’s Marvin Roberts, who was Thomas’ leading scorer at Florida International this past season, called his experience playing with the NBA Hall of Famer “special.” “He does get a bad rap,” Roberts said Saturday after a streetball game at Hoops in the Sun in The Bronx. “Before I went there, I heard a couple of bad things about him. But I’m the type of person, I like to experience things on my own. I like to make my own mistakes and learn from them. And by going there and meeting him and playing for him, it was not a mistake. It’s probably one of the best things that has happened in my basketball career and my life.”
