Stephon Marbury: Chinese All-Star MVP

Mar 22, 2010, 5:16 PM EDT

Adjectives fail me, so we present without commentary the report straight from the fine folks at Reuters (via Ball Don’t Lie):

Former NBA player Stephon Marbury justified his status as the highest profile import in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) with an MVP performance at the league’s All Star weekend.

The former Minnesota, New Jersey, Phoenix, New York Knicks and Boston point guard, twice an NBA All Star, scored 30 points at Beijing’s Wukesong Arena to lift his North team to a 133-121 victory over the South Sunday.

More than just his scoring, it was his array of “no-look passes, alley-hoops and mid-court three-pointers” that won Marbury Most Valuable Player honors and rescued what had been “quite a dull game,” according to the Xinhua news agency.

    It is amazing how little credit Stephon Marbury gets as a basketball player and how much gruff he receives as a human being. I will not pretend to admit I understand Mr. Marbury’s actions or idiosyncrasies, nor do I want for that matter. Yes I will admit too that for all of his talent, he wasn’t always the best teammate but his talent level was high barometer and that is what is ignored. Like or hate him, he provided a fascinating glimpse of a skillful yet tormented soul who sought praise for his athletic excellence at the expense of social connection. Maybe one day he will look at himself and wonder truthfully, “could I have derived more in my professional career by being less of me?” Perhaps that is where the dilemma lies for had he not been himself, would he have ever gotten to the place where most ardent basketball fans can only dream about yet he survived and prospered for over 10+ years. It was his hubris that shades our eyes, poisons our souls and diminishes the light that had a chance to burn so brightly instead of caustically.
