Stephon Marbury hasn’t been a factor in the NBA for over eight years, but in China, he’s a big deal.
Since joining the CBA (Chinese Basketball Association) in 2010, the former NBA All-Star has become a superstar. He’s so popular, a museum dedicated to him is set to open next week.
According to ESPN, Marbury attended the grand opening for the 300 sq. ft. museum in Beijing on Monday (Dec. 21), ahead up the public opening next week.
Since 2011, Marbury has led the Beijing Ducks to three of its past four CBA championships, including last season, during which he was named finals MVP for the first time. He averaged 29.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 2 steals over the best-of-seven series, which Beijing won 4-2.
