The Home of Marbury, a private museum for former NBA star Stephon Marbury, is reportedly set to open in Beijing soon, according to various media reports.
The museum, sponsored by China Post, covers over 300㎡and will be free of charge up until Christmas.
The 38-years old has transported much of his collection from New York to The Home of Marbury.
“I’m so deeply humbled and thankful for this high honour. I can’t believe that all walks of life will be able to see the history of my basketball legacy. Thanks to China Post for making this historical monument come to life in Beijing, the city I call home,” the former NBA star wrote on Weibo.
In addition, supporters of Chinese Basketball Association club Beijing Ducks have started crowdfunding to build a statue of Stephen Marbury on a 1:1 scale.
Stephen Marbury is now on a contract with the Beijing Ducks and he was a winner in the CBA finals last season.
