Kenyon Martin's beef with Tim Thomas includes 50 Cent, cash-slapping, and a kid's birthday party


Kenyon Martin and Tim Thomas weren't exactly NBA superstars. The Knicks and Nets have never had what you'd call a great rivalry.
But those two players, playing for those two teams, have one of the stranger beefs in recent NBA history. It started with a hard foul on Thomas in a playoff game (and not even one committed by Martin), continued with an extremely dumb war of words, and resurfaced recently with some spicy podcast appearances and even a potential boxing match. Al Harrington and his children got involved, 50 Cent got involved ... it got weird.

    It seems like K-Mart has spent his entire life trying to convince people he's a tough guy. Remember when he made the Knicks where all black to the Celtics playoff game in 2013? Or when he got racial with Lin (who owned him), and then bringing up an old feud on Woj's podcast after the beef was already squashed.

    As far as a player skill set Thomas was the better perimeter threat and wing defender but Martin was better in the paint on both sides of the ball . From the beef aspect this is nothing more than diet artificial pretenda thug beef lol !!!!!
