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

Fredette took exception to the hit, yelling at Marbury. Marbury appears to make contact with Fredette's face, though it's not entirely clear.

After a hard foul, Stephon Marbury and Jimmer Fredette got into an altercation during a game in China. Marbury turned 40 this past February and announced this season would be his last in China after parting ways with the Beijing Ducks, a team that made him a legend overseas, complete with everything from a postage stamp to a musical in his honor.

Fredette and Marbury are both former National Basketball Association lottery picks from NY - the former from Upstate and the latter from Brooklyn - but the two point guards took entirely different paths to Chinese stardom.

On Tuesday, LiAngelo Ball and two other UCLA Bruins players were arrested for shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzou, China.

The former BYU star, who was selected 10th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft, went off for a 54-point triple-double in his team's victory. It was his second straight 50-point performance, and pushed his season average up over a whopping 40 points per game. China's version of NBA Twitter must be extremely lit right now. While they were never teammates, they both played for the New York Knicks at one point. The two-time All-Star was the No. 4 overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft.
