Stephon Marbury Hopes For NBA Comeback

Despite turning 40 in February, former All-Star guard Stephon Marbury hasn’t given up on returning to the NBA, relays Chris Chavez of Sports Illustrated.

Marbury, who had his contract in Beijing terminated this spring, tweeted this morning that he is “working on the come back to the #nba.”

Marbury is one of the most successful foreign players ever in the Chinese Basketball Association, putting up huge numbers and winning three championships. The Beijing Ducks parted ways with him in April after a dispute over money and his role with the team for the next two years. His contract included an option to make him an assistant coach for the upcoming season, which Marbury didn’t want to do. In July, he announced plans to stay in the CBA with the Beikong Fly Dragons.

Despite his advanced age, Marbury remained productive in China, averaging 21.4 points, 5.5 assists and 4.0 rebounds in 36 games last season. He hasn’t been in the NBA since the 2008/09 season when he played 23 games for the Celtics.

    idn…21pts ah game over seas is ah pretty impressive avg. if Vince can pay at 40…..y can’t he??

    • The reason it’s not impressive is because in this particular “overseas” league a forty-year-old can score 21 points a game.

        • Jimmer in China also, but I’m not sure how many different leagues they have in a bball crazy nation of almost a billion and a half people.

    He is my favorite player of all time but there is no way he gets back into the NBA not even as a coach there is just to much Drama with him he may not even get one of those 1 day retirement deals because he’s burned a lot of bridges in his time
