STEPHON Marbury has definitely made quite an impression in China.
According to the China Daily, a museum was opened in Beijing to honor the former NBA All-Star.
Maligned in the NBA, Marbury found success in China, led the Beijing Ducks to three Chinese Basketball Association championship titles in four years, received another high honor from the city as his personal museum was unveiled on Monday.
"Today was one of the best days of my life," the two-time NBA All-star announced on his Weibo account during the opening of The House of Marbury.
"I couldn't have dreamed this dream for myself although God has created another miracle in this life for me. Without my teammates, coaches and fans from Beijing this wouldn't be possible," said the 38-year old point guard from Brooklyn.
Located in downtown Beijing, the 300-square foot museum features a collection of photos chronicling Marbury's life and career that spans his early years in Coney Island to his move to a place he now calls his “second home.”
Also present at the opening were members of Marbury’s family and his coaches and teammates from the Ducks.
A portion of the exhibit has a display of six jerseys that includes Minnesota Timberwolves—the team that selected Marbury fourth overall in the 1996 NBA Draft—the New Jersey Nets, his hometown New York Knicks and the Beijing Ducks.
