Memo to Marbury: Why you will never play for the Miami Heat!
Stephon Marbury told the New York Post on Sunday that he didn’t turn down a chance to play for the Heat. In fact, Marbury still hasn’t given up hope on playing for Miami.
Marbury said a Chinese reporter mixed up the translation of his remarks and that it was falsely reported he had rejected an offer from the Heat. He told the Post that Miami contacted him in early July before LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh joined forces. The Heat told him they would get back to him after "they handled all the things they had to handle."
"It’s total nonsense, why would I turn down a chance to play for the Miami Heat?" Marbury said. "The report was a fabrication."
