There is at least one person who hates adding William “World Wide Wes” Wesley to the Knicks front office.
Former Knick Stephon Marbury banged Wesley on Twitter.
“Did you really just bring sucka to the New York Knicks all over the world? And I’m not talking about a sucka like the sucka we call a sucka,” Marbury said in a video posted on his Twitter account. “Really? Did you bring this guy here? Why? I’m a real New York Knicks fan. I’ve been a New York Knicks fan since I was a spit. Come on Dolan, friend. You are kidding me, friend. You brought this guy here? Really? what’s going on, man? there must be an explanation. Not him! Of all the people, do you bring this guy here? You bring him to New York? To New York? He has no credibility here! Nah. “
When asked what his problem was with Wesley, Marbury called it a “kiss for $”, said “Give it a year” and “A $ kisses never work on @nba”.
The Knicks announced the rental of Wesley earlier this week, with team president Leon Rose and Wesley making statements.
“We are very excited to announce the hiring of William Wesley, someone I have known for over 40 years and whom I consider family,” said Rose. “He is one of the most connected and respected people in the basketball community and will be an extraordinary resource and resource for both me and the New York Knicks.”
“My long history and respect for Jim Dolan and Leon Rose as well as being part of the New York Knicks made this an opportunity I wanted to pursue. I can’t wait to join the current staff and move the organization towards a successful future “.
