(you know the old saying, “Grenada makes, China takes”)
Would you have preferred “Return To Sender” for a headline? Chuck D. once famously declared, “most of my heroes don’t appear on no stamp”, but until Belize gets around to honoring Von LMO, Stephon Marbury is Coney Island’s most contemporary product to receive such an honor, as the NY Post’s Marc Berman (for fuck’s sake, WHO ELSE?) explains :
“I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that people will be able to buy a stamp of me to mail packages anywhere in the world,’’ said Marbury, who plans to give a speech at the National Museum of China in Beijing. “I am truly humbled. Never did I imagine in all of my 38 years of living that I — a kid who grew up 7,000 miles away from Beijing and a kid who came from the projects of Coney Island — would have a stamp of myself. I can never have dreamed it.”
Marbury plans to be back in the United States in late April and attend some playoff games. In his speech, he plans to announce he will be back for another season with Beijing.
