As we wrap up a glorious Walking Dead Marathon that lasted 3 entire days on AMC this week, one’s mind wanders over to the NBA’s very own real life Walking Dead – Marcus Camby.
How this man has yet to retire is beyond any of us basketball fans. When he was a Knick (for the second time), he was literally a corpse in a jersey. The fact that he continues to soldier on as a free agent looking for work is astounding.
His rotting flesh and stumbling shuffle belie his glory days as one of the elite defenders of the NBA. We all yearn for the old Marcus Camby – the one that had a functional nervous system and didn’t crave the flesh of the living. Alas, we can only dream a dream – one that will never be coming true. Marcus. Please retire.
