Marbury gets statue in China

By Ian Begley

Ex Knicks and Coney Island native Stephon Marbury was honored with a statue in China for his accomplishments in the CBA.

Yes, you read that right.

The former Knick attended a ceremony to unveil a statue of himself in Beijing on Sunday.

Here's the visual proof, courtesy of Marbury's Twitter feed.

And, making the situation even more bizarre, Dennis Rodman spoke at the ceremony, according to reports.

Marbury led the Beijing Ducks to a CBA title this season. It's good to see him in a situation where he can be successful after a rocky NBA career.

The former Knick, of course, shouldn't expect to be honored with a statue outside of Madison Square Garden anytime soon.
