Stephon Marbury Lands in China

They must not get Ustream over there: “The 32-year-old, a free agent since leaving the Boston Celtics last season, had agreed a deal with the northern club and would arrive in Shanxi next week, the team announced on their official website (www.sxcba.com). ‘The aim of signing Marbury is to pay back our fans and try to win more games in the rest of the season,’ said Shanxi boss Wang Xingjiang. The 2001 and 2003 NBA All Star was expected to help boost Shanxi’s ticket sales as well as their chances of making the playoffs. Shanxi is currently 15th in the 17-team league.”

    TOGETHER TILL THE END……(this is not a coincidence)

  • riggs

    do you just come out of the woodwork at any mention of marbury OR iverson?

  • http://www2.gsb.columbia.edu/faculty/jstiglitz/ DIMITRIS DIAMANTIDIS

    @riggs….:do you just read cartoon-related posts…?

  • neaorin

    Payback for their fans? What did their fans do to them to deserve this?

  • Peter

    @neaorin…hilarious. THIS IS PAYBACK B*TCHES

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com/ Seth

    I think Steph is beginning to see the white light of professional stardom.

  • rav

    does anyone still care about this moron???

  • http://www.twahc.blogspot.com twahc

    wow. 15/17. there’s plenty space to bring the team up.

    @rav….:watch your words, STARBURY&IVERSON are misunderstood geniouses.

    Marbury, if only D’Antoni didn’t screw with your head…

  • Reflex

    Dimitris, you’re a bonafide hater. I couldn’t care less what Marbury is doing, I’m genuinely indifferent to him but you seem to pop out of nowhere whenever he or Iverson are mentioned. This is the 1st post of yours I’ve seen in like a month…Does the guy owe you some money or something? It’s like your spider senses tick off whenever he’s mentioned like ‘Marbury’s been mentioned on Slam, must show hate pronto’. Take a seat back sometimes, to say you look childish & immature would be an understatement. It’s bordering on obsessive with you.

    so we won’t see another starbury SLAM cover!?

  • Sam Z

    dimitris ur a moron

  • michael scorn

    Yeah dimitris, this website is for hating LeBron or Kobe ONLY. Go find a different site if you want to hate someone else.

    @Reflex: LOL I wonder about the same thing as you, dude. Its like greek dude is an obsessive ex-girlfriend who was dumped by Marbury and Iverson.

  • Hoodsnake

    I think they had JR Rider before this neaorin…

  • Rich

    Is this America’s revenge for those Ni-Ling sneakers?

  • MikeC.

    @neaorin – that’s exactly what I was thinking when I read that line. Maybe they have terrible fans that throw sacks of dog crap on the court during games, and this is PAYBACK!! If Marbury gets up to any of his antics in China, he’ll be in trouble. Bang an intern in the sex truck…jail. Smoke the reefer on the Internet…jail. Get into it with coaching and management…jail. Maybe they’ll re-educate him and he’ll be transformed into a team-first player…nah.

  • MikeC.

    Maybe Marbury will resurrect his career, play a couple years of top-notch ball, and we’ll see millions of Chinese kids with Starbury tattoos on their heads. And every Shanxi intern will be banged in the sex truck.

  • Lebron is greater than Kobe

    @michael scorn i thought we could hate the overweight players and ai haters

  • michael scorn

    @Lebron is greater than Kobe- No, we make fun of the overweight players, not hate.

  • kashdef

    I read this article on espn and it said Marbury was mainly looking to promote his shoes… I can’t wait to buy my own pair of $3.00 bootlegged Starburys lol

  • http://slamonline.com Dave

    He’ll sign and come off the bench with Kings next season – and be an All Star.
    The guy’s a genius.

  • MikeC.

    Starbury is just building his brand. He’s trying to beat Lebron to billionaire status.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    I think this is the team Bonzi Wells played for. Good luck to Steph.
    My hometown laojia too!

  • Royal

    I think the girl Marbury banged in the back of the car In New York was Dimitris wife or something lol

  • Nashty

    Signing Marbury to win more games……LOL, that just sounds stupid.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Um, during his time with Boston, was that the first time Marbury has made it past the first round?

  • Hoodsnake

    of the playoffs yes…

  • luvs2spooge

    bonzi wells averaged 50 points a game there so i think starbury will do very well. and all the asains will buy up all his shoes

  • Steve13

    This is such a smart move from a business standpoint. He will be the star of a huge market. Potentially sell more shoes than any other brand. Very wise move that will pay its dividends

  • http://www2.gsb.columbia.edu/faculty/jstiglitz/ DIMITRIS DIAMANTIDIS

    @Royal….:it was my mother.

  • therighttoremainsalient

    prediction: Marbury plays one season in china, comes back and signs with New Orleans when they desperately need a PG next season after chris paul BLOWS THE F up when David West is traded for a handle full of Varej’s afro and goes on to get 2 million allstar ballot votes for the 2011 allstar game. word to ya mother.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    Actually, the interview with Steph (in Chinese, I can’t seem to find the translated English one) shows him at his best – thoughtful, friendly, kind and open-minded. Reading it reminded me of why Slam loves Steph so much. I hope he gets his stuff together in Shanxi, and comes back to play on a team that matters as a key role player again.

  • tavoris

    I so knew the greek guy would show up here. How this (to him) has anything to do with anybody other than Marbury is puzzling, tho. At any rate, can’t knock Marbury for going where the opportunity is, even tho he squandered the opportunities he had thus far. I-for one-hope he dominates the league & learns a lot in China.

  • tavoris

    @Joel-Steph is ALWAYS that way, even when he’s angry.

  • http://jimboloser@gmail.com jim boloser

    marbury can’t sell his crap sneakers in the us and lost millions on his sneaker deal with steve and barry so he’s heading to china to try to sell his crap there. this is a publicity stunt as told by insiders and he is a fame whore. his whole born again crap,twitter, ustream is an embarresment to the real players out there

  • http://jimboloser@gmail.com jim boloser

    the joke is they make his crap sneakers for a dollar fifty in china and even they don’t want them…….

  • chintao

    Unfortunately, Shanxi is not coming to Beijing. That means… road trip! Maybe I’ll try to take some video and post it someplace. Also, anyone who is interested can watch live games streamed through broadcasters who post on atdhe.net, spvod.com, and nba.allp2ptv.org.
