    Marbury to play basketball in China

    Stephon Marbury will become the highest profile American to play in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) after he agreed to join China's Shanxi Club.
    "The aim of signing Marbury is to pay back our fans and try to win more games in the rest of the season," said Shanxi boss Wang Xingjiang.
    Marbury wanted to promote his personal brand of shoes in China and will not receive an exorbitant salary.
    Shanxi last season hired former NBA player Bonzi Wells, who scored as many as 50 points a game.

    Well if Bonzi Wells could put up 50 in a game, you have to think Marbury could go for 75...


    TRUE AND VALIANT

    wow, I can still remember when he was going to be a franchise PG in Minnesota. Hard to believe there was a time when people were more excited about him and Tom Gugliotta than Kevin Garnett.
