The Vegas Summer League is only a few days old, but we’ve already seen plenty of action.
First and foremost, we need to address Stephon Marbury’s head. He got a new tattoo on his left temple. Its a blue 3, the logo for his Starbury brand sneakers. As always, he has great timing. Steve and Barry’s, the store which sells the shoes, recently filed for bankruptcy. It’s still unclear whether Steph will suit up for the Knicks this season, but its good to know that his place on the batshit crazy all-stars is still secure.

There’s also some basketball being played. The biggest highlight, so far, came at the end of the first quarter, in a game between the Grizzlies and the Spurs. Memphis rookie OJ Mayo tossed in a 69 foot jumper to beat the buzzer. He ended the game with 18 points. Fellow rookie, Darrell Arthur threw in 23.
