Marbury Agrees to 3 Years with Chinese Team

The AP is reporting that Marbury was a fan favorite last year in China, behaving like a model citizen. Makes you wonder if his time in New York would’ve ended better without Isiah Thomas: “Former NBA All-Star Stephon Marbury has agreed to three more years with a Chinese basketball team, whose owners will set up a company to produce and sell his line of athletic apparel and shoes, the team said Thursday. Marbury played 15 games last season with Shanxi Zhongyu of the Chinese Basketball Association. The point guard was a fan favorite in the rustbelt city of Taiyuan, showing none of the defiant personality that had alienated management, teammates and fans in the U.S.”
