Ex-NBA Star Stephon Marbury

My Lady's Gonna Be

On 'Basketball Wives'

Hopefully they get VH1 in China ... 'cause ex-NBA'er Stephon Marbury's super hot wife has been tapped to be on the next season of "Basketball Wives."

Sources close to the production tell us ... Tasha Marbury is in final talks to join the show -- a much needed cast replacement after Royce, Jennifer and Kesha were all axed.

We're told producers approached Tasha for two main reasons ... she's actually a basketball wife (she and Stephon married in 2002) ... and secondly she's already friends with some of the other "wives."

Sources tell us, Tasha was previously asked to do season 1 of "BB Wives", except Stephon nixed the idea -- but now he lives in China part time playing for the Beijing Ducks ... and changed his tune.

We're also told producers are still looking to fill a couple more spots. One of which might be Evelyn Lozada's -- considering she has yet to make decision about returning to the show.

That is a awful ****ing show. I cannot believe anyone would want their name associated with it, in any way at all.

These "reality" shows have to stop NOW. American Idol, X Factor, The Voice, Basketball Wives, The Bachelor, Kardashians, the list goes on and on...but they are all complete CRAP!!! Anyone remember a show called Hogan Knows Best? It was about Hulk Hogan and his family. I remember talking to a woman who went on and on about what a great family they were when that show aired. I just looked at her like she was crazy. After the show went off the air , we all saw the real Hogan family: Complete White Trash. It appears that Hulk Hogan doesnt know ****.

Very fitting that he branches out in the world of reality television. He always seemed like a reality TV star masquerading as an NBA player. He had more style than substance. Anyone who has followed his career can confirm that.

They need to replace Evelyn and get a real Basketball Wife! It really can't be that hard to get REAL Basketball Wives or maybe the wives do NOT want to be a part of this show!

Wasn't Stephon the one having sex in the back of the car with an intern? Maybe she should have signed up for that other reality show with the couples going through therapy. Because someone is going to bring it up and the girls will have another reason to fight on this show.
