"Romping With Starbury" Internship Program History?

Feb 25, 2009

















Mothers Express Relief
 
New York - With Stephon Marbury now an ex-Knick, the former All-Star’s groundbreaking internship program, "Romping With Starbury," appears in peril. The program arranged for women 21-and-under to have fun with Marbury in the back of his SUV.
 
"This is a sad day," said Marbury, who added that he had hoped the Knicks would continue the Romping internship program. “I guess they can’t find anybody willing to take over,” explained Marbury, who pointed out that “bad press and angry mothers” had hampered Romping from its inception.
 
“Romping With Starbury was never team sanctioned,” said the Knicks' president Donnie Walsh, who arranged Marbury’s buyout and exit, “and we want to make clear that the SUV in which Mr. Marbury was conducting interviews was not parked on Madison Square Garden property.”
 
A source close to Marbury, who asked not to be identified, said it was probably best that the program be abandoned. “Steph’s wife LaTasha had some issues with the whole Romping With Starbury concept.”
