Marbury Turns Down Offer from Israeli Team

The Israeli basketball club, Hapoel Jerusalem, offered Marbury a one-year contract worth $400,000. Time to contact the Heat, anybody? From the NY Post: “According to a source familiar with the situation, free agent Stephon Marbury turned down an offer from a team in Jerusalem.”

    The King doesn’t like Marbury. Period.

    But he would be a nice backup to Mario.

    He’ll likely go back to China or maybe team up with Antoine Walker in Puerto Rico.

    Stephon is too much like LeBron to co-exist with him. What did Steph say about racking up assists? ” I can’t get no dimes if no one making they shots” Now LeBron blaming his teammates, on a 66 win team no less, for the fact that he got shut down in the clutch. They’re birds of a feather.

    I want to see Jason Williams on the Heat, but I would equally love Marbury on that team too. Dude still has thoses flashes of brilliance

    How is 400k disrespectful?

  • Jelte

    With all the hype surrounding the Heat from now on, I’m sure they can’t use any additional distractions like Marbury. Despite those flashes.

  • riggs

    only flashes steph has are from heat.

    cosign Mike. disrespectfull?! 400k?

  • WangChung

    @Jelte: Just what would those distractions be? Marbury wouldn’t be the top dog on that team and he knows it, just like he knew on it on the Celtics. As long as he’s in shape, I say give him the vet’s minimum.

    @Mike: I’ve been trying to figure out how athletes minds work for awhile, man…haha if I was offered 400K for anything I’d be honored.
