Rumors: Stephon Marbury back in the USA.

So...hide your Vaselin, turn on Ustream and prepare for the crazy...or just the off centered. Stephon Marbury is headed back to the U.S. of A.

The demands Marbury made to his Chinese team were a little too much for them. Read:

“Marbury never signed a contract,” said Zhang to Xinhua reporter, Ma Lin. “So there was no breach of contract, nor was there any treachery.” According to the report, Marbury and Shanxi agreed upon a general contract structure and put in a clause that would allow the two sides to cooperate with each other in marketing and branding the two time All-Star’s “Starbury” shoe line.

However, when Marbury returned to the States, he sent back another contract filled with other clauses, including one stipulating that the team must re-sign Maurice Taylor, who played with Marbury on Shanxi last year, for another year. Adding to that, Marbury also requested that the two be put up in a five-star hotel in Taiyuan, as well as an apartment complete with a private chef and maids, all at the team’s expense. The two sides met up again in Las Vegas in October while the team was training, but were unable to come to an agreement.
