If you think China’s takeover of America isn’t imminent, you need to open your eyes.

I mean, how else do you explain Stephon Marbury, the former New York Knicks LEGEND, getting his own museum in Beijing? And from the sounds of Chinese newspaper China Daily (which is most likely communist propaganda...?), Marbury doesn’t seem to mind at all that his museum isn’t in America.

“Today was one of the best days of my life in opening my own museum The House OF Marbury,” announced the two-time NBA All-star on his Weibo account ... His fans congratulated him on the honor, saying he deserved the award. “Finally you have a ‘home’ in China,” a Weibo user commented ... The 300-square-meter area in downtown Beijing showcases Marbury’s photos, from his childhood in Brooklyn, New York to recent years in Beijing, a place he sees as his “second home.”

Marbury, 38, has played in China since 2010, and has led the Beijing Ducks to three CBA titles in four years. In their most recent win, Marbury was named Finals MVP. 

In addition to the museum, Marbury has been named an honorary citizen of Beijing and has his own statue outside the Ducks’ home arena. Marbury also applied for a permanent residence card, which the Beijing Public Security Bureau approved last week. 

How much longer y’all want to stand for this? They’ve already taken Marbury. What’s next?
