Stephon Marbury is a REAL CRAZY GUY !!!


When he arrived into Beijing, he said he will make every effort to melt into the life of Beijing, and strive to become a common Beijinger.

He rented an apartment in Wangfujing to be nearby Randolph Morris, the other expat of Beijing Capital Steel Ducks.

And his team specially assigned a car with driver to drive him and Randolph Morris to the stadium for team practice/training.

But Stephon Marbury refused to take the car, and instead opted to take the pretty crowded Mass Transit Railway from Wangfujing to Beijing Capital Steel Ducks training arena/stadium for team practice/training. :shock:

LOL !!! :P :lol: :D

The crazy Stephon Marbury had this RMB 100 bet with Wang Meng of Titan Sports to take the #1 MTR route (the most busy and crowded MTR routing in Beijing) for 3 consecutive days on common week days.

The guy woke up every morning at around 6 to 6:30 am, departed from his apartment around 6:45 to 7:00 am so as to avoid the morning peak hours, squeezed onto the MTR, left off at the MTR station closest to the stadium, then took a short taxi ride so as to get to the Beijing Capital Steel Ducks training stadium
before 8:00 am just to win the bet with Wang Meng.

He did it for 3 consecutive days: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.


He decided to continue for another month, and buy an electronic stored value ticket for that purpose.

It's time for a few latest updates of expat players joining various CBA teams:


  • Former NBA player Donnell Harvey who had stings with New Jersey Nets, Denver Nuggets, Dallas Mavericks, Orlando Magic, and Phoenix Suns, and who formerly played for Jiangsu Nangang Dragons had joined Tianjin Ronggang.
  • Veteran Jarron Collins who played for Utah Jazz from 2001 to 2009 had joined Qingdao Double Stars.

    Image
  • It's rumored DeAndre Jordan of LA Clippers is considering an offer to join Zhejiang Guangsha Lions as a replacement for Earl Clark of Orlando Magic who chose to leave the team shortly arriving China, who claimed his girl friend was pregnant that he had to leave China back to USA, but obviously could not settle down and adapt to Chinese environment and food.

    Image
  • It's also rumored that Guangdong Dongguan Bank Hongyuan Tigers is eyeing to sign Rodney Stuckey from Detroit Pistons to team up with James Singleton and Yi Jianlian so as to have a stronger team to compete with Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers which might mean lesser play minutes for Liu Xaioyu and Chen Jianghua, and Shi Hongfei, former U19 national team point guard who just got promoted into the senior team.

    Image
  • And Sam Vincent, former head coach for Charlotte Bobcats had joined Zhejiang Chouzhou Bank as their assistant coach, assisting local Chinese Head coach Ding Wei.

The only CBA teams that had the LEAST NEWS about signing NBA expat players must either be Bayi Rockets and Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks.

For Bayi Rockets, it's understandable, as they belong to the People's Liberation Army, and they're not allowed to sign any expat players.

As for Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks, it was due to
the fact that financially speaking, Yao Ming is the poorest owner amongst all the remaining CBA teams. And therefore they had been very selective and cautious so as to waste money into signing some expansive but not efficient/effective expat players.

Anyway, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks had so far made a couple moves:

  • They had first nailed down their head coach, Dan Panaggio, former head coach of NBDL LA D-Fenders to replace Bob Donewald Jr. who had joined Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers for higher salary.

    Image
  • They had finally secured the service of Tseng Wen-ting, the Taiwanese player that they had worked on since last season.

    Image
  • With Dan Panaggio planning to transplant/migrate the Triangle Offense into Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks, he had summoned Ryan Forehan-Kelly from NBDL D-Fenders for a trial with the Sharks. Ryan Forehan-Kelly is no stranger to CBA; he used to play for Jiangsu Nangang Dragons in 2007/08 season.

    Image
  • It was rumored that Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks had intervened into Jiangsu Nangang's deal with Sebastian Telfair, that instead of joining Jiangsu Nangang Dragons, Sebastian Telfair might instead join Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks.
  • And John Lucas III and Mike Harris are also keen to rejoin the team, but I guess it all depends on the final decision of the new coach Dan Panaggio, as well as to what extent Yao Ming can afford.

Accompanied with his sister, and with 19 pieces of luggages, J. R. Smith arrived Shanghai Pudong International Airport on Friday, and then took the team's bus to Hangzhou.

Then after a night's rest, J. R. Smith went to greet his new team mates of Zhejiang Chouzhou Bank (including Josh Boone) yesterday.


But he did not join the team practice, as obviously he had yet to recover from the jet lag.

Quote:
The Guangdong Southern Tigers in China are making a hard push to sign Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey, according to sources with knowledge of the negotiations.



The biggest hurdle for Guangdong to clear, though, is the same hurdle all Chinese teams face when trying to land NBA players: Stuckey, if he signs, would be unable to come back to the NBA until Guangdong's season ends in March, even if the lockout ends before that, thanks to rules instituted this season by the Chinese Basketball Association.

The rules also state that Chinese teams can pursue only free agents. Stuckey would have been a restricted free agent this summer, under the NBA's previous labor agreement.

Guangdong also recently signed Washington Wizards unrestricted free agent Yi Jianlian. But because of different CBA rules for Chinese nationals, Yi has the freedom to return to the NBA as soon as the lockout ends. Yi is a native of Heshin, Guangdong, and played for the Tigers from 2002 to 2007 before his jump to the NBA.

A trio of players from the Denver Nuggets -- Wilson Chandler, Kenyon Martin and J.R. Smith -- are the most prominent NBA free agents to sign in China and forgo the right to play in the NBA this season before March, unless any of their Chinese teams elect to release them outright.
