No limits for Marbury: 4000 points in China


Despite defending champions Beijing Ducks lost against Guangdong 103-89 in their 2014-2015 season debut, Stephon Marbury scored 32 points, enough for totaling 4000 points in his amazing career in the Chinese top-flight competition. Marbury is the 43rd in arriving that mark in the CBA history, and also he has the 11th best average among those with 100 games played or more (157 games, 25,6 per night).

Beijing and Guangdong played 54 times since the league inception in 1995-96 season, with the Ducks winning 24 and losing 30 of them. However, since Marbury joined the team after the 2011 season, Beijing dominated the series winning 11 of the last 17 bouts, and also it's the seventh time that the Ducks play a season-opening game, winning six of them.

Marbury in China is also 50 assists from 1000, another outstanding accomplishment if we consider he is the third all-time best assist average in the Chinese league with 6,0 per game. Despite his 13 year stint in the NBA (where his 16,297 career points still stands among the Top 100 all-time in scoring, his 6,471 assist mark still 21st all-time and his 7,6 assist career average among the Top 20) he sought the titles and glory in the Far East, and he got it,... twice.

Recently a new documental about his life in China was released. And the very beginning suggests he looked for something more than self-redemption. "When I came here they called me crazy and stupid.. Here's not only basketball... is greater than basketball". A true champion.
