What is the Policy on Regifting Crap?

The NBA announced their list of its best-selling jerseys during the holiday season at its flagship store in New York City, as well as on

The list seems typical at first glance. Kevin Garnett is first, Kobe Bryant slipped to two, and then the usual big names like Allen Iverson, Steve Nash, Lebron James, and the like follow.

Upon further review, there is a problem. Go ahead and click the link. Now scroll down to number 9. I'll wait...

Got it?

No, you're eyes aren't being deceived.

The number 9 spot belongs to... Stephon Marbury?!?!?! Does he still play in the NBA???

That's right, the self proclaimed "greatest point guard in the NBA", in a season amidst throwing punches with Isiah Thomas, not showing up for games, blackmailing his coach, and more or less slipping through the cracks of basketball mediocrity, was able to outsell stars like Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Paul Pierce, and Tracy McGrady (aren't there like 1 billion people in China? No love for Yao or T Mac).

I guess they took into account all the jersey's Starbury bought himself. Bet I know what everyone in the Marbury family got for Christmas this year!

"Awww man, another Marbury jersey?"

"Yes, but this one is a road jersey!"

I almost bought a pair a month ago. No joke. They were $9.99 and were black, blue, and orange.

His whole "starbury" line of clothing sells well, its sold at Steve and Berry's and is pretty inexpensive.
