Marbury thirsty for CBA restart
BEIJING -- Both Stephon Marbury and his Beijing Royal Fighters are very eager for the possible start of the 2019-2020 Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) season.
"Now!" said coach Marbury about when he would prefer the league season to start.
The CBA was reported to have mapped out several different plans for restarting the season, and Marbury has worked hard to keep his team ready for all of them.
"The current situation is getting better and better, and we all are looking forward to being able to play again," said the guard who spent almost a decade working in China as a player and coach as well.
"The sooner, the better," said Royal Fighters center Wang Shaojie. "It's difficult to keep fit for a long time."
"The most important thing for us is to make the best of our time and get ready," said veteran guard Sun Yue.
"We try not to think too much about things we can't change."
The Royal Fighters are ranked eighth in the 20-team league after 30 games.
