NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — You can’t stop an 18-wheeler with a peashooter.
Former New York Knicks guard Stephon Marbury found that out the hard way Tuesday when he tried to stop 7-foot-1 Han DeJun, aka “The Chinese Shaq,” who was barreling down the lane late in Game 4 of the Chinese Basketball Association finals.
That had to hurt.
But the 38-year-old Marbury — who has become a two-time champion in China after fizzling out of the NBA — got his revenge, hitting a series of key buckets down the stretch to lead Beijing to a 111-110 win over Liaoning that evened the series at two games apiece.
Still … ouch.
