Former NBA star Stephon Marbury has taken a major step toward realizing another dream in China.
After 13 often-turbulent NBA seasons, Marbury has reinvented himself in China by winning a championship, earning a massive fan base, writing a regular column for China Daily and even seeing a statue of himself erected outside the premier basketball arena (MasterCard Center) in the capital city.
Still, his China ambitions are not done yet as he has started down another career path – as a basketball coach.
“It’s pretty amazing. It’s humbling … it’s something that you don’t expect to happen so quickly,” the 36-year-old told China Daily recently after helping Beijing qualify for the final stage of the high-profile event.
