Apparently, life in China is tougher than Stephon Marbury thought it would be. (WEEI)
Former Celtic Stephon Marbury is demanding an additional $2 million to return to the Chinese team Shanxi Zhongyu, according to The Hoops Market (via Sina).
Marbury reportedly is unhappy with the cold weather and is asking for more money, a huge jump from the $25,000 a month he signed for in January. Just a month ago, Brave Dragons coach Wu Qinglong praised Marbury for being easy to get along with.
“People say this and that about him, but let me tell you, I had dinner with him last night and it was so simple, chicken fried rice. That’s it,” he said. “He was happy. He said it was really good. He didn’t even want anything to drink, just some bottled water.”
Thank God the Celtics got a new Knicks backup point guard this season. Marbury’s a constant circus. Although, to be fair, he was on his best behavior while in Beantown.
