It seems as if the Chinese Basketball League has become the place to either continue or revitalize one’s once promising basketball career as players like Stephon Marbury, Wilson Chandler, Kenyon Martin, and more recently Tracy McGrady have become basketball superstars in China.
Even future NBA Hall of Famer Allen Iverson made an appearance in China recently and paired off against Marbury as part of a Ball Up promotional tour.
But probably no one expected former Rutgers standout and former NBA player Quincy Douby to go off for a CBL single game scoring record 75 points, besting the old mark of 71 points scored by former Memphis Grizzlies guard Andre Emmett.
After being selected with the 19th pick in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings, Douby bounced between the Association and the D-League averaging no more than 4.8 ppg, until he was ultimately released by the Toronto Raptors in 2009.
Quincy then resurfaced in Turkey and led the Turkish Basketball League in scoring in 2010 before signing to play in the Chinese League with the Zinjiang Flying Tigers and Zhejiang Golden Bulls where he set numerous CBL scoring marks for most points in a Finals Game(53 points) and most points in an All Star Game(44 points).
As you can see from the video, Douby(#5) now sports a beard, but still has that trademark prolific scoring stroke that helped him pour in more than 25 ppg and lead the Big East Conference in scoring back in 2006.
