Jimmer Fredette, Stephon Marbury get into scuffle during matchup in China

Jimmer Fredette, Stephon Marbury get into scuffle during matchup in China

In a game between Marbury's Beijing Fly Dragons and Fredette's Shanghai Sharks, Marbury committed a hard foul on Fredette, who was attacking the basket on a fast-break chance.

In the third quarter, Fredette was going to the rim with Marbury defending. Marbury somehow avoided a whistle, despite seemingly catching Fredette's arm and face with his right hand, but Marbury did not escape Fredette's wrath. Marbury and Fredette then got chest-to-chest, exchanging verbal jabs.

Jimmer was the leading scorer and International MVP of the league last season; Starbury is a legend in China, with an entire museum constructed in his honor.

Stephon Marbury and Jimmer Fredette hashed some things out Friday during a Chinese Basketball Association game. The two-time NBA All-Star is quite simply the CBA's most famous foreign player in history. Entering this matchup with Beijing, Jimmer was averaging 38.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists. While they were never teammates, they both played for the New York Knicks at one point. He spent part of the 2015 season with the Knicks.

The BYU product didn't like it, but Marbury isn't one to back down.

Fredette netted 54 points and had 13 rebounds and 10 assists for a triple-double.
