    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…

    China Marbury

    They may love him and erect statues to him in Beijing, but things are different in Virginia. That is where Stephon Marbury, through his business entities, bought some commercial properties for investments. But the bank says they have not been paid on loans for those properties and because Marbury personally guaranteed the loans they are…

    Remember early last year, when Knicks fans were worried about when J.R. Smith could get out of his China contract and help the Knicks in the NBA playoffs, but everyone had to wait for his team to be eliminated from the playoffs? Well, Stephon Marbury and his Beijing Ducks were never eliminated — they won…

    Things you will not see on Aaron Brooks’ and Stephon Marbury’s tapes to NBA teams include… Yes, those two are on the floor for this horrific sequence from the Chinese Basketball Association All-Star Game.

    This is one of the most amazing stories of the entire lockout. We’ve talked about how in the wake of an injury in his first game, and how J.R. Smith left the team to seek treatment, his Chinese squad (the Zhejiang Golden Bulls) had just about enough of him. Smith has been Smith — late…

    The venom players have directed at Michael Jordan and his role as a lockout hardliner continue. They are frustrated witha  guy that stays quiet in meetings then talks tough later. Nick Young said hewouldn’t wear Jordan-brand shoes any longer and question the GOAT. And now Stephen Marbury has entered the fray with his usual subtleness. Marbury…

    Stephon Marbury announced on Twitter yesterday that he has signed a new deal that will keep him in the Chinese Basketball Association, but his pleasant present didn’t stop him from stopping to reminisce about his unfortunate NBA past. His short stint with the Boston Celtics at the tail end of the ’08-’09 season couldn’t erase what…

    New continent, new problems for Stephon Marbury. Well, maybe not new problems. So instead let’s go with “Big Trouble in Little China” We learn via Deadspin that Wachovia would really like back the $16 million it loaned Marbury’s apparel company a few years ago. And they’d like it now. If the company can’t pay it,…

    Jul 30, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony Panda

    It’s always a nice Saturday morning when Stephon Marbury is back on our pages. It’s comforting. Like the crazy old guy at the coffee shop who wants to talk to you about how aliens stole his shoes. The New York Post gave Marbury a ring to ask him whether it would work for Carmelo Anthony…

    May 5, 2011, 1:36 PM EDT

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    If at one time a statement can be no-brainer true and completely moot, this next sentence is it: Knicks owner James Dolan has promised team president Donnie Walsh he will not rehire Isiah Thomas to work for the Knicks, according to the New York Post. The report says that Dolan has become disillusioned with Thomas…

    Nov 28, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    marbury_china

    It looked so promising — Stephon Marbury had become the biggest name in the Chinese Basketball Association, seemingly transforming a moribund franchise in a quiet city into the talk of the Chinese Basketball Association. After a sort exile from the NBA he found a place where he was the man and had found a good…

  13. Stephon Marbury’s world of fantasy, where D’Antoni is on the hot seat

    Nov 16, 2010, 11:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    In Stephon Marbury’s matrix, his thoughts on the Knicks really matter. They do not in any of ours, for us they are pure entertainment from a guy headed to China to play. That said, we like entertainment, so here is what he told the New York Post (just some highlights of a story you should…

  14. China may get Steve Francis, too. If this were 2001 that country would be killing it.

    Sep 14, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    China already has all our manufacturing and Stephon Marbury. Then they might get Allen Iverson. And now maybe Steve Francis. That’s what Stevie Franchise himself told Xinhua News (Via Trey Kerby at Ball Don’t Lie): The 33-year-old, once known as “Franchise” as the cornerstone of the Rockets’, said he cannot afford to sit on the…

  15. Iverson's manager "shocked" no team has contacted him

    Sep 13, 2010, 10:31 PM EDT

    There was a time when Allen Iverson filled arenas to see him play, when he was the player symbolizing the bridge to the hip-hop culture in the NBA, when his jersey sales were at the top of the league, when he was one of the most dynamic players in the NBA. That was a decade…

  16. Stephon Marbury, China business mogul

    Aug 13, 2010, 10:18 AM EDT

    Stephon Marbury — captain of industry. That may be the sentence I least expected to write in this lifetime, but there you have it. When Marbury re-signed with Shanxi Zhongyu in China for three years this summer, the deal came with a very interesting component — the team’s ownership agreed to create a company to…

  17. Stephon Marbury agrees to three more years with Shanxi Zhongyu

    Jul 29, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    Maybe Stephon Marbury was offered a chance to play with the Miami Heat or maybe he wasn’t, but it’s all moot now. According to the Associated Press, Marbury has agreed to a three-year deal with his current Chinese Basketball Association team, Shanxi Zhongyu. Two pretty interesting tidbits, though. According to Shanxi’s website, Marbury may only…

  18. Stephon Marbury: Heck yea I'd play in Miami

    Jul 26, 2010, 9:29 AM EDT

    So maybe Stephon Marbury isn’t as far out on the crazy bell curve as we thought last week. Oh, he’s still a few standard deviations away from the norm, but he’s not lost all grip with reality. He says that he did not turn down a chance to play with the Heat and very much…

  19. Just in case you were curious, Stephon Marbury is still completely batty

    Jul 23, 2010, 6:07 PM EDT

    Whether in the All-Star game, on the bench, in a box, or in China, nothing seems to change with Stephon Marbury. He is who he’s always been, and that’s why no one should be all that surprised that when given the opportunity to be a part of the championship-favorite Miami Heat for the coming season,…

  20. Celtics taking on interesting variations of former selves

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:05 PM EDT

    The Celtics defined their 07-08 championship run with high-character players who understood their role built around the big three. That was what made the 2008 team so dominant, the perfect management of ego and talent. A combination so brilliantly naturally dynamic even Doc Rivers couldn’t screw it up. But since then, they’ve started to take…
