November 21, 2008: When coach Mike D'Antoni joined the New York Knicks, he benched his out-of-favor point guard rather than disrespect him with spot minutes (and because benching a player is a common way to show how much you love and respect them). After the team traded starters Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph, D'Antoni was left undermanned, so he asked Starbury to help out and play. Selfless player that he is, he suited up and recorded two assists'one for each ass cheek that warmed the bench while he sat in protest, watching intently as the Milwaukee Bucks beat down the Knicks 104-87.
