Exclamation Marbury to play in the Chinese Basketball Association

Quote:
"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.

The 2001 and 2003 NBA All Star was expected to help boost Shanxi's ticket sales as well as their chances of making the playoffs. Shanxi is currently 15th in the 17-team league.

Wang added that Marbury's salary would not be too high because the former New jersey Nets and Phoenix Suns player wanted to promote his personal brand of shoes in China.


Shanxi last season hired former NBA player Bonzi Wells, who scored as many as 50 points a game. The contract ended after less than two months when Wells went on holiday but failed to return on time.

Smart on Marbury. Enter a market where your affordable brand of basketball shoes can be sold at a lower cost than Nikes. Real, real, intelligent move.

Well, he'll never be hungry because I think they make plenty of vaseline in China.

Do you know why he swallowed the Vaseline? Probably not, so I'll enlighten you. There's an "old wives"/home remedy for a sore throat, and that's to consume vasoline because it coats the throat. He was saying how his grandma taught him that. He didn't consume vaseline because he was hungry.

+1. That's really saavy. It was a business oppourtunity. Now that Steve and Barry's went under, you gotta find ways to push your product..and if he goes there and totally dominates, he'll be even more high profile and his shoes sales will go through the roof. Genius, really.
