Heck, I’d pay to see this. Maybe more than the Heat/Clippers exhibition games that tip off in China in just more than a week.

Allen Iverson and Jason Williams are going to play in an exhibition game in Beijing against Stephon Marbury and his team, the Beijing Ducks. Other guys playing on the NBA alumni team you may know include Damon Jones, Shane Burrell and J. R. Reid.

Remember that the Ducks are the reigning Chinese Basketball Association champions and Marbury was a huge part of that, dropping 41 in the final game. He got a statue out of it.

The NBA is trying to spread it’s brand in China and has been for years, hence sending two of its most popular teams and some very popular players — LeBron James, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade (who may not play as he recovers from knee surgery) — there before the season.

But like I said, if you’re forced to watch meaningless games wouldn’t your rather watch Iverson and Marbury put on a show?

    Good to see China importing garbage from the US.

      Maybe that’s where you should take your opinions then.

      As for this matchup… I’d still put my money on A.I.

    China could import half the NBA, NFL and MLB , then the garbage deficit would go away. We could send back the contaminated dog food too, but then what would all the pit bull owners feed their dogs ? Current Administration ????

    Stephon Marbury, Allen Iverson… now Tracy McGrady. They’ve all discovered Asia is a place where they never have to stop basking in the adulation they received when they were 25 years old.
