Heat contact Marbury?

Well, at least according to him...

Marbury

From Xinhua News:

Stephon Marbury said Friday he is still looking for a chance to play in China again though the Miami Heat showed interests in signing the point guard.

The fomer NBA All-Star guard said the Heat contacted him through the player association of the NBA before LeBron James announced he would join in Miami on a live televesion show.

"I'll wait and see what'll happen," Marbury said during an interview with local media at the tom.com.

"They (the Heat) wanted a point guard. But I don't think a point guard would do much in the team as they've already had the Three Guys (Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh)."

Marbury told the Chinese media that "there's a 90 percent chance" he'll play next season in China if he doesn't return to the NBA.

Marbury, 33, last played in the NBA for the Boston Celtics in 2008-09, but turned down an offer to re-sign for the veterans' minimum last year. The Heat could only sign Marbury for the minimum.

Marbury signed with the Shanxi Zhongyu Brave Dragons in January, averaging about 23 points and 10 assists.

I doubt if the Heat really contacted Starbury about playing for them.

For all we know, he could have ingested some Vaseline and misconstrued what the conversation was about.

Say what you will about Starbury, he would be an upgrade over the current PGs on the roster and the guy actually does good things in the community even though the media demonize him every chance they can get.

Well, gee, if Jorge says it bogus it must be so because, I mean, well, Jorge is like the first to know these things.

Ohhhh brother, give me a break.
