Two-time NBA All-Star Stephon Marbury is 40 years old and hasn’t played in the NBA since 2009, but he’s hoping to make a comeback.
He took to Instagram on Tuesday (Sept. 12) with a video revealing his plan for an “NBA comeback”.
“Yes, it’s true. An NBA comeback is coming,” Marbury says, adding that he hopes to play his “last year as a pro” stateside.
First, Marbury is expected to play out the final year of his contract with the Beijing Fly Dragons during the 2017-18 Chinese Basketball Association season and retire from the league afterward. Once the CBA season is over, he wants to return to the NBA.
Despite his intentions, he has no offer from an NBA team just yet.
Since joining the CBA in 2010, Marbury has won two CBA championships with the Beijing Ducks.
Marbury entered the NBA back in 1996 with the No. 4 overall pick by the Milwaukee Bucks, but started his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves, before joining the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks and Boston Celtics. During his career, he averaged 19.3 points and 7.6 assists per game.
What do you think? Can Stephon Marbury make an NBA comeback?
