New York Daily News reporter Frank Isola has known Stephon Marbury for a long time, even before the Coney Island-raised Marbury played for the Knicks. During a break on Thursday’s taping of Around The Horn, Isola told Jackie MacMullan of the time he helped out a 13-year-old Marbury, who was hanging around the locker room.

The Bulls did play the Knicks on Valentine’s Day on Feb. 14, 1991, which would have put Marbury at 13 years old, so this all seems to check out.
