After years of building his own legend in China, Brooklyn born Stephon Marbury is looking to end his basketball career back in the states with an NBA uniform.
To many, the career of Stephon Marbury is the personification of the term “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Not to say Starbury was ever trash, he was far from it, but he was certainly discarded as such after teams felt he was used up.
After a tumultuous 15 years in the NBA which saw him alienate teammates, kill coaches careers, and become a part of a huge sex scandal that rocked the New York Knicks franchise to its core, Stephon Marbury experienced quite the renaissance when he took his talents to East Asia.
Not only did Starbury lead his Beijing Flying Ducks to three CBA championships, but his reputation of being the greatest foreign player to ever lace up in the Chinese Basketball Association earned him his own museum in The Middle Kingdom (we dead ass, b).
Now according to TMZ the former no. 4 overall NBA Draft pick is looking to end the book of Starbury with the final chapter set in the National Basketball Association.
Whether or not the 40-year-old point guard is still opposed to playing for the Knicks is unknown, but maybe he’d consider his hometown Brooklyn Nets. Lord knows they need a big name to help fill seats at the Barclay’s Center.
