08:52 AM ET 07.30 | Chinese basketball stalwart Stephon Marbury told The Post yesterday he does not think either Carmelo Anthony or Amar'e Stoudemire could cut it in China because they may not have the right mindset for the grittiness of the country's basketball scene.

Why do I believe this is Stephon saying "Don't come to China and take my spotlight!!"

Hahaha... Stephon Marbury of all people talking about the ability to handle "grittiness"... Isn't that kind of like Lebron criticizing other players for not being able to close out a game in the final quarter ?

James shot like 25-30% in the 4th quarter during the Finals.

That was back in Minnesota when he was part of their core along with Kevin Garnett.

Technically speaking, he mattered for the first few months he came to ny.But afer he said he was better than jkidd and was swept out of the playoffs, that ended abruptly

That's true. Although, I'd have to bring up the "I-word" and I don't want to do that to you to start your weekend. lol

Why don't they have news like the Pistons hiring Lawrence Frank as a head coach? The Pistons made a mistake again. I'd pick Woodson over Frank. Frank is just way overrated. He sucked as the Nets head coach and JKidd was the real coach for that team...

There's was a lot of support behind Woodson. From my perspective, neither one makes an immediate impact and, at the same time, either one would be okay. It may take another season or two but the story in Detroit will no longer be the signings of BG/CV...the story will be the young core of Monroe & Knight and...TBC
