Marbury laughs off retirement talks

A day after stirring up talks of retirement [1] with an ambiguous message on Twitter, Stephon Marbury [2] laughed off the notion of calling it quits.

On Wednesday he responded to the rumors with the following Tweet [3]:

“Retire. LOL. They need for you to think I’m going to do that because they know I’m focused and ready to play this year count me in for 5 yrs”

The speculation was sparked after Marbury posted [4], “Basketball is just a game. I will say it again. 14 years 250 million. Hold that. I’€™m good.. Thank you jesus for the blessing. Thanks NBA” on Tuesday night.

If Marbury is still committed to playing basketball, the question is, who will commit to him?
