Stephon Marbury last played in the NBA with the Boston Celtics during the 2008-09 season. Since then the two-time All-Star, who also spent time with the Minnesota Timberwolves, New Jersey Nets, Phoenix Suns, and New York Knicks, has been hooping it up in China for the Shanxi Zhongyu Brave Dragons, Foshan Dralions, and currently the Beijing Ducks. This season Marbury filled up the stat sheet on a regular basis (27 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 steals per game) and was named to the league’s All-Star Game. Beijing finished the regular season with the CBA’s second-best record (21-11) and Marbury advanced to the playoffs for the first time since arriving in China.

Beijing won their quarterfinal series 3-0 and the semifinals 3-2. On Friday the Ducks won their first ever championship, beating defending champion Guangdong Hongyuan in the CBA Finals. Marbury led the way with 41 points, 7 assists, and 3 rebounds. He had this to say afterward.

“This has been incredible, it has been an incredible experience,” a tearful Marbury said after winning his first major league championship.

“This shows what this team is made up of, everyone stepped up and everyone played their role. We have been blessed as a team.”
