Did not see Stephon Marbury signing with a Chinese team at all. This guy makes some of the strangest moves in history. More below:
BEIJING — Former NBA All Star Stephon Marbury has said he hopes to use his on-court skills to market his brand of low-cost basketball shoes when he laces up for China’s Shanxi Zhongyu in the coming weeks.
“I want to bring love to Chinese fans and I want to feel the love of the Chinese fans, so I’m going to play hard and work to help Shanxi win more games,” Marbury told Tuesday’s Titan Sports Weekly, a top Chinese sports paper.
“I’ve already decided, every game I’m going to give away shoes to the fans. This is my own brand — I hope they will like them,” he said in an interview from Houston, where he was in training ahead of his arrival in China.
Shanxi Zhongyu announced Monday on their website that the often troubled point guard would arrive to China in the coming week, but team officials told AFP that a contract would not be signed until after his arrival.
