Stephon Marbury Sobs in Locker Room after Winning Chinese Basketball Championship

Monday March 31st, 2014


Stephon Marbury is now a two-time champion. The former polarizing NBA star scored 28 points in game 6 to help lead his Beijing Ducks to a 4-2 series win over the Xinjiang Flying Tigers over the weekend.

Marbury then had his Jordan moment, sobbing in the locker room as cameras surrounded him.

It was a good thing for Marbury’s brand that he was able to play well in a win, because poor game 5 performances from him and teammate Randolph Morris had some locals speculating they had thrown the game.
