Stephon Marbury has agreed to procure 10 million medical masks for New York

-

Former NBA player Stephon Marbury informed the New York Post that he had signed a contract to supply 10 million N95 medical masks to New York. These masks are urgently needed by healthcare workers who are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

Marbury has the masks made at cost in China, where he played for the past seven years of his career.

Although Marbury currently lives in Beijing, China, he said: “Ultimately, I’m from Brooklyn. This is very important to me when it comes to helping New York. “

When Marbury grew up, he played at Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn and on the famous New York City playgrounds. After a year at Georgia Tech, Marbury joined the NBA. The highscoring guard played for five teams, including his hometown of New York Knicks, during his 13-year NBA career.

After missing two seasons, Marbury signed with the Beijing Ducks in 2011. The move was initially seen as a way for Marbury to prove that he can still play at NBA level. Instead, Beijing became a home away from home for the New Yorker.

Marbury scored an average of 21.6 points per game in 271 competitions with the Ducks in seven seasons.
