Thanks to his most recent championship with the Beijing Ducks in the Chinese Basketball Association, Stephon has his very own statuebeing erected as a special thank you for leading his team to victory. The Ducks won the championship series 4-1 over the Guangdong Hongyuan, in which Marbury averaged 33.4 points per game, 6.2 assists, and 4 rebounds.
However, those numbers were not what earned Marbury the honor of a statue. It was an internet campaign launched by hoopschina.com that rallied all of his fans together to make a push to have the structure created. Within hours, more than 1 million fans showed their support for the idea. A model has been molded out of clay and sent for production, which is said to be made of bronze and completed in the next few weeks.
