Celtic Shakespeare

http://www.theonion.com/content/news/stephon_marbury_embroils_celtics

I love it when The Onion does it Shakespeare style.  “A Director Sets A Play In the Time and Place Shakespeare Intended” is still one of the great Onion stories of all time.

When you throw in my Boston Celtics, well, then it’s comedy gold.

"Weird thing is, he kept calling the other guys moors, which is just really messed up," the 12-time all-star said. "I mean, what is that, anyway? He didn't say it like it was a good thing. If he plays good basketball he can do what he wants, but I'm not going to listen to anyone call me or my guys moors."

All three men also commented that Marbury had at some point pulled each one of them aside and told them the other two had been "making the beast with two backs."

Marbury, as a basketball player, has seen better days. If he wants to act, he should do so; and I would bet there are Shakespeare companies that would love to give him a shot.
