Surprise! Stephon Marbury Says He Was Misunderstood

Former New York Knick Stephon Marbury says a Chinese journalist improperly translated his remarks recently in a report stating that Starbury rejected a chance to play with the Miami Heat.

"It's total nonsense, why would I turn down a chance to play for the Miami Heat?" an irate Marbury told The Post from Beijing. "The report was a fabrication."

Indeed, two weeks ago, Marbury, in a e-mail to The Post, wrote: "Who wouldn't want to play with those guys?"

"What I was saying was I wouldn't be making a major difference with those guys because they have great players," Marbury told The Post. "I'd just be filling a smaller role. Miami was considering bringing me there. They told me they'd get back to me. I haven't heard back."

Imagine that! A Chinese reporter losing something in the translation when trying to figure out what Marbury is talking about. The guy is hard enough to figure out when you speak English. Here is an old Starbury interview for your enjoyment.
