Former Knicks star Stephon Marbury wants to deliver the Big Apple something it needs even more than an NBA title, 10 million N95 masks for hospital workers and other first responders handling the coronavirus pandemic.
Marbury, who played in the NBA 14 years before moving overseas to become a legend in the Chinese Basketball Association, told the NY Post he’s made arrangements with a mask supplier in China willing to sell New York 10 million masks “at cost” for $2.75 each.
That’ well below the roughly $7.50 that N95 retailers have been quoting the state.
The Coney Island native said he got the idea last week after learning of the state’s lack of protective gear and the astronomical price its been paying for masks.
