Go read this excellent GQ profile of former Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets star Stephon Marbury, currently balling in China. The
once-troubled troubled one-of-a-kind point guard sounds like he's finding his way in a country just big enough for his own rapidly morphing view of the world, while of course burning out a fanbase or two.
â†µâ†µ"I want to build my own city," he said. The settlement, he explained, would be built on a 4,000-acre cotton farm in South Carolina he had his eye on. The citizens would be "all my family members. They gonna have their own businesses, companies that will feed off of my company. I want to build my own Walmart-style store. I want to build my own hospital and school system. I'll take all the people where I'm from in Coney Island and tell them to leave everything they got inside their homes and move into our new homes. We'll have all the people sign up to be Starbury employees before they move. This is my vision of what I want to do if this thing really pops off the way I think it will if we continue to stay on the path."â†µ
