Ex-Knicks star Stephon Marbury makes huge China mask deal


Now, Marbury is giving medical masks the Starbury treatment, as The New York Post reports he's reached out to government officials in New York offering to help supply them with 10 million much-needed N95 masks, which he says he can provide for $2.75 each as opposed to the usual asking price of $7.50 thanks to his relationship with a manufacturer in China.

The two-time NBA All-Star selection now coaches the Beijing Royal Fighters and told the New York Post he had arranged for a supplier in China, where he has lived for the last decade, to sell the N95 masks at a price of $2.75 each, nearly a two-thirds discount on their original retail price of $7.50.

Although Marbury now lives in Beijing, China, he said "At the end of the day, I am from Brooklyn".

Apparently, Adams hasn't had the easiest of times getting in touch with Mayor Bill de Blasio or Governor Andrew Cuomo.

'So this is my first day out after 14 days of quarantine, ' Marbury said in the video posted on Instagram last week. I don't know who's who.

"This is the new normal in the life", Marbury wrote. Wearing a mask is so important during this #coronavirus pandemic if we must be out and about. No one is exempt as we see people of all statue infected by this virus. We can do this by staying home until we create a solution that everyone can conform and perform well to (sic). Quick to listen and slow to speak to each other will help us communicate better to each other. After one year at Georgia Tech, Marbury left for the National Basketball Association.

The fourth overall pick of the 1996 draft said his gesture was simply a means to give back to the community.

The 43-year-old Marbury is now a head coach in the Chinese Basketball Association following a memorable playing career in the country, though he spent plenty of time in NY and the surrounding area during a 13-year stint in the NBA. Instead, Beijing became home-away-from home for the New Yorker.
