Stephon Marbury recently sat down for an interview with Complex in which he spoke about his new life in China and reflected on his time playing in the NBA, including his stint with USA Basketball at the 2004 Olympics.

In speaking about the '04 team that settled for a bronze medal at the Athens Olympics, Marbury recalled it being "the worst 38 days of my life."

He specifically addressed his relationship with Larry Brown, who not only coached that 2004 Olympics team but was also brought in to run the Knicks. 

Per Complex's Wallace Matthews

Marbury says that on the first day of Olympics practice, Brown asked his players—a group that included LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Tim Duncan and Allen Iverson – to state their goals for the tournament.

“By the time he got to me, everything was said that needed to be said,’’ Marbury says. “So I said, ‘Let’s also not forget that we need to have fun.’ And Larry goes, ‘Huh. Listen to this guy, talking about having fun!’’’

“The worst 38 days of my life.’’

In regards to Larry Brown joining the Knicks, Marbury added,

“I begged Isiah not to bring him to the Knicks,’’ Marbury says. “It was just unbearable, man. Nobody wanted to play for him. The whole energy was terrible. But it was the environment he wanted. Misery.’’
