Were Jimmer Fredette's previous forays into the world of professional basketball on American soil not enough to show you that he's better off overseas? Well, let this shockingly cavalier block on his lay-up by the closest thing that China has to an NBA player in a 40-year old former NBA player who eats (drinks?) vaseline on his off days be a reminder. Those 50-point triple doubles take place in the Far East because Western civilization is wayyyyyy too advanced to let some athletically limited, shot-happy white boy drain defenseless 3's all damn day.
Let's just be honest here. Stephon Marbury returned that ball so quickly that you would have thought its sender had an Afghanistan address. He put forth the effort in whacking back that rack attack that a father might in playing his 3 year old on a 'Fisher Price' hoop for rights to the TV on a Sunday afternoon. Jimmer Fredette wasn't mad because he thought he was fouled, he was mad because potentially the only person capable reminded him why he is where he is in his basketball career by stonewalling him while barely leaving his feet.
Now, I find the pushing match between China's two most notable American players to be inherently hilarious. There's no doubt that a rivalry exists between Jimmer Fredette and Stephon Marbury simply because neither hate anyone else in the league enough to learn their actual name. Still, the idea that that is the Asian equivalent of the following is comical in a "oh my god, that's really the best we've exported?" sort of way...
