Hey, Look, It's Stephon Marbury and Jimmer Fredette Jawing in China

Stephon Marbury

It is the year of our lord 2017, and Stephon Marbury and Jimmer Fredette just got into a shoving match.

In a video posted to Twitter via Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype, the incident between the two players occurred late in the third quarter when Fredette; who plays for the hosting Shanghai Sharks, was stopped in the paint by Marbury of the Beijing Fly Dragons. Fredette took exception to the hit, yelling at Marbury. It was his second straight 50-point performance, and pushed his season average up over a whopping 40 points per game.

Former NBA and New York Knicks players Jimmer Fredette and Stephon Marbury got into a fight during a Chinese Basketball Association game in Shanghai on Friday.

Black Friday deals: Walmart and these other retailers circulating ads early
Penney said it will start its Black Friday sales online starting the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Walmart is among the retailers kicking off Black Friday deals on Thanksgiving morning.

Fredette was a superstar at BYU, winning the NCAA scoring title and college player of the year honors before being drafted 10th overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2011. The two-time All-Star was the No. 4 overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft. While they were never teammates, they both played for the New York Knicks at one point.

As a result, the Fredette-Marbury matchup was an unlikely one Stateside and somehow a marquis one in CBA circles.

Cooler heads would eventually prevail and the Sharks went on to win the game in overtime, 123-119.
