When Stephon Marbury went to China, he did things no one expected: he became a beloved figure in China, he revitalized his career, and he overhauled his eccentric reputation.

About that last one...

Maybe he’s just ahead of the curve, but when Marbury says that Zion Williamson is “ way better than LeBron, it’s not even close,” well, as much as we think of Zion, that’s getting a bit carried away.

Williamson is already seen as a once-in-a-lifetime talent but to dominate at the next level he’ll have to constantly refine his skills, just like anyone else.
