During this summer’s offseason, the news that Marbury will return to the CBA as the head coach has never been broken.
At the end of May, according to “Beijing Sports Broadcasting” and the well-known basketball reporter Jia Lei, Stephen Marbury had reached an agreement with the Beijing Beikong team on coaching. Marbury also updated his personal social media, writing:
“A new personal chapter is about to usher in.” However, because the North Control team has not made an official announcement, the fans are not sure about the authenticity of this matter.
And a month has passed in the blink of an eye, and it seems that Marbury has really encountered some problems as the coach of the North Control team.
Until yesterday afternoon, the official social media of the North Control team finally posted an announcement that Stephen Marbury will soon become the team’s head coach.
It is reported that Tian Zhenqing, Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of Beijing Enterprises Group, Hou Zibo, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee and General Manager of Beijing Enterprises Group, Hu Yintong, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee of Beijing Enterprises Group, Li Yongcheng, Member of the Standing Committee, Vice Chairman and Executive Deputy General Manager of Beijing Enterprises Group, and other senior leaders attended the meeting.
The signing ceremony was held.
Among them, Tian Zhenqing, secretary of the party committee and chairman of the Beijing Enterprises Group, said in an interview with reporters: “In the CBA league last season, the record of Beijing Enterprises basketball was not satisfactory, but we believe that it will rebound after hitting the bottom. Starting from this year’s season
, Beijing Enterprises Basketball will take a big leap forward, strive to be on par with the first camp, and aim to compete for the championship in the future, and strive to become a top basketball club in Beijing to repay the care and love of the fans!”
After the North Control team officially announced that Marbury became the team’s head coach, Marbury himself also updated his personal social media. I saw him posting photos of himself at the signing ceremony and wearing a Beijing Forbidden Warriors-themed hat on his head.
He wrote: “Beijing, I’m back, Chinese basketball, I’m back! From next season, I will be the head coach of the Beijing Forbidden Warriors Basketball Club! See you in the 2019-2020 season!”
Yu Liang, the captain of the Beijing Beikong team, also updated his personal social media. He wrote: “Three stages, three relationships, what remains unchanged is the love for basketball!” He also posted three photos of Marbury
, The content of the photos is that Marbury played with Yu Liang when he was in the Beijing Shougang team, Marbury played with Yu Liang in the Beijing Enterprises Men’s Basketball Team, and Marbury became the team’s head coach.
At the same time, the North Control team announced that this Friday, it will hold a media press conference on the appointment of Marbury as the team’s head coach.
Looking back on his playing career, Stephen Marbury has been selected to the NBA All-Star team twice, and he has also represented the US national team in the Athens Olympics. His personal ability is beyond doubt.
When he came to the CBA League, Marbury first spent two seasons in the Shanxi Men’s Basketball Team and the Foshan Men’s Basketball Team (now the Guangzhou Team), and then joined the Beijing Shougang Team in 2011, starting his CBA legend.
During his time in Beijing Shougang, Marbury led the Beijing team to complete the great feat of three championships in four years!
In the last year of his career, Marbury joined the Beijing Beikong team. On February 11, 2018, Stephen Marbury played the last game of his career and announced his retirement with tears.
Although he retired, Marbury did not leave China. He chose to devote himself to the field of youth basketball, opened a basketball training camp, and once served as the coach of the basketball team of the High School Affiliated to Peking University.
During these years in China, Marbury has made movies, obtained a green card, and owned the “Marbury House”. He has become one of the iconic symbols of Beijing basketball.
Marbury’s return to Beijing Enterprises as the coach this time will undoubtedly boost the Beijing Enterprises’ ball market.
In a vote on a fan forum, more than 70% of netizens are full of expectations for Marbury as the coach. As for whether he can help the Beijing Enterprises gradually align with the first camp of the CBA as the senior leaders of Beijing Enterprises said, let us continue.
Pay attention and look forward to.
