Stephon Marbury’s career was, or rather is a roller coaster of highs and lows. His 13-year NBA career began after being selected fourth overall in 1996, one of the best draft classes in the history of the NBA. The Brooklyn native went on to earn two All-Star appearances, while averaging a very respectable 19.3 points and 7.6 assists a game, becoming one of the most feared point guards of his generation. Unfortunately however his career did not end the way he expected, as he eventually left the NBA due to diminished playing time.

Depressed by not only his deteriorating career, but the loss of close family members and friends, Marbury decided he needed a drastic change in his life or things would only get worse. In 2010, he opted to continue his career but in China, and although many criticized him for the move at the time, it has worked out wonderfully for Marbury. So much so that the city of his current team, the Beijing Ducks, have enshrined their leader with a massive statue and museum in his name.

Watch Marbury’s redemption story above, as told by Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated. The entire piece can be read here.
