Yep, it was Jr. in a sweat suit with his I-Pod earphones dangling just hanging around in the Garden.
To me that was a sure sign that Marbury was about to be waived and Jr. would resume his career in the same building as his dad.
Now, some 4 months later there are roster spots. The vacancies that weren't available for the kid. Gone is Marbury and Anthony Roberson, who took the kid's spot to begin with. Gone, too, is Malik Rose.
There is a vacancy for a project big man, and for a combo guard. Why not for the kid who just may be the easiest PR decision in the team's history?
Of course we know Donnie Walsh doesn't operate from a PR standpoint, but he knows good business.
So with his dad in town, a man who has to be unhappy about having his own door to MSG apparently shut in his face, I wonder if the relationship can be reconnected by Walsh again letting his son play here.
And I wonder if that will happen soon.
I mean can you imagine the two of them celebrating together on the Knicks bench in a few years?
