KNICKS: In N.Y., Richard Sandomir notes MSG announcers Gus Johnson and Kenny Smith during Tuesday’s Knicks-Suns game “could not summon any real opinions” on Knicks G Stephon Marbury’s highly-publicized decision to leave the team in Phoenix and return to N.Y. The network “didn’t ignore his disappearing act,” as it showed Knicks President of Basketball Operations & coach Isiah Thomas telling the media that it was “an in-house matter.” However, Johnson, who was substituting for Mike Breen, and Smith “recognized that safety rested in never directly criticizing Marbury’s action” (N.Y. TIMES, 11/15).
