The Miami Heat told Stephon Marbury they wanted him… and he wasn’t interested?
Stephon Marbury said Friday he is still looking for a chance to play in China again though the Miami Heat showed interests in signing the point guard.
The fomer NBA All-Star guard said the Heat contacted him through the player association of the NBA before LeBron James announced he would join in Miami on a live televesion show.
“I’ll wait and see what’ll happen,” Marbury said during an interview with local media at the tom.com.
“They (the Heat) wanted a point guard. But I don’t think a point guard would do much in the team as they’ve already had the Three Guys (Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh).”
Let’s see. You can either a) stay in your home country, play with two of the game’s top three players and have a very realistic shot at an NBA championship, or b) return to China, where you get paid $25,000 a month and would once in a while get the chance to watch two of the game’s top three players on TV. It’s an easy decision, right? I mean, China in a landslide. It’s easier to average 12 dimes and 3 assists there.
