Stephon Marbury = Karate Kid



This has nothing to do with our Utah Jazz, but is such an incredible story, I thought it might be of interest to basketball fans in general. I don't know if anyone has read this article, but it details the incredible rise of Stephon Marbury to prominence in the Chinese Basketball Association. Long story short, Marbury landed on a team (the Beijing Ducks) that is the Chinese equivalent of the pre-Griffin/Paul Clippers. In guiding this team to the CBA finals, Marbury has become a fan favorite and is putting up phenomenal numbers.

This is where the story gets good. The team that the Ducks are going up against is considered to be the juggernaut of the league, namely the Guangdong Southern Tigers. Imagine the Jazz going up against the Heat in the finals.

Today was the first game of the finals. Marbury led his team to a large first half lead, the Ducks wiping the floor with the Tigers. The coach of the Tigers then pulled his two former NBA players, and in a move that seems to be pulled from the scrap heap of Hollywood's cliche evil villain coaches moves, he sent in a hitman. Not only did he send in a hit man, but he told the hitman during a time out, and as far as I know this is a legitimate translation, he told him to "sweep the legs." Then this happened.


Needless to say, Marbury's team won the game, but I can't wait to see this on the big screen.
