Stephon Marbury goes off on LeBron, defends Derrick Rose

stephon-marbury-china-winFormer NBA star Stephon Marbury, who found great success by playing in China and winning several championships there, has recently ranted about Derrick Rose’s NBA contract.

The former NBA star took to Twitter to rant about the one-year, $2.1 million deal that Derrick Rose signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers, citing Rose’s 2011 MVP Award and even calling out LeBron James, according to Larry Brown Sports.

“I think it’s a crime that Derrick Rose is being paid this amount of money, when you have guys that can’t chew gum and walk making more,” Marbury said.

“WTF is going on in the NBA. I’ve watched guys that shouldn’t be in the game let alone the money their getting. Drose is a Monster,” he continued.

“Really? A MVP for that amount of money. Not even haters will agree with the price tag. Dude is one of the strongest PG to play. Him coming back from major injures should show his work ethic and commitment. This isn’t cool!,” said Marbury.

“I pray that’s what he says but Lebron should of stepped in. Maybe he’s leaving so he doesn’t care but my man should be eating healthier,” he tweeted.

Marbury had a roller-coaster NBA career in which he was twice named as an All-Star but also endured a string of disappointing stints with several NBA teams.

With his NBA options becoming limited, Marbury decided in 2010 to head for China in hopes of jump-starting his career. The rest is history.

While Marbury was happy to escape to China, he still left enough of history in the NBA to recall it. Marbury was a 2-time All-Star in the NBA, averaging 19.3 ppg, 7.6 apg in 846 career NBA games (816 started).
