Although Knicks president Isiah Thomas is not looking for anyone's blessing regarding his courtship of Larry Brown as head coach, he has received a thumbs-up from his star point guard, Stephon Marbury.

Thomas spoke with Marbury on Thursday, and according to a person close to both parties, Marbury is excited about the possibility of playing for Brown. Marbury even offered to call Brown on the telephone to aid the recruiting effort.
