The last time Stephon Marbury was playing in the NBA, he was coming off the bench for the Boston Celtics. That wasn’t exactly successful and after some UStream videos, he went to China to resurrect his career. And, boy, was it quite a resurrection. He’s become a basketball icon in China, winning two championships in the Chinese Basketball Association. Marbury even got his own statue and was set to star in a theatrical play about himself called “I Was Marbury” (or “I Am Marbury”).
Well, it’s more than just a play. He’s starring in his own MUSICAL. And here’s part of the musical:
This is incredible in so many levels. I think it’s already amazing that he’s STARRING in a musical about HIS OWN LIFE. And there’s Marbury dribbling and dancing on stage as himself. It’s outstanding.
Too bad, this musical is only in China. I’d go see it live.
